A striking stone manor house with terraced lawns, just waiting for a cheerful group of friends or family. A huge stone fireplace with wood-burner, an intimate dining room, a slate-floored breakfast area, big bedrooms and a games room with pool table make this an exceptional place for atmospheric house parties, weddings or any celebration.Cooks will love the modern, roomy kitchen but there’s a full catering service too – order a picnic hamper or dinner. Outside, you have the run of five acres – fountains, wildlife, a small lake, tennis and croquet on the tended lawn. You’re in an AONB and walks are from the door.Wander to the village shop or pub, drive to Frome for the Frome Independent – more than just a market – or to Bruton and a visit to Hauser and Wirth for art and very good food. As evening falls you can all take a sundowner to the terrace and watch the stars come out.
