The
Experience

A wonderful place for a holiday, with plenty of space for everybody. The big house, built for Clive of India, sits comfortably at the bottom of a long winding drive and the holiday homes radiate out from it: Berkeley, Plassey and Garden Flat are all warm and comfortable with original pictures and furniture, oodles of interesting books and generous free logs. Clive and Harold, tucked into a corner of the old brick stable yard, are cosy boltholes with pretty fabrics, colourful rugs and neat-as-a-pin kitchens. Groups take both. Garden House stands on its own with a private lawn in front and a south-facing terrace at the rear. All the downstairs rooms have large windows allowing light to pour in, underfloor heating keeps you cosy, the kitchen is large and the sitting room has a wood-burner. You have the estate to stroll through, mature trees to admire, and if there is no wedding taking place, the arboretum and garden to wander at will – you can fish in the small pools too. Book a tour around the house if you’re a party of 16. A slice of history in this lovely part of the world: head off on a borrowed bike to discover all its treasures.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Caitlin Hoare

  • Clive and Harold are located next door to each other so you can either book them individually or together to make a group of 10. Both have small gardens so you can dine al fresco!
  • Eclectically furnished, these apartments, like all on the Walcot Hall estate house an array of interesting antiques and homely furnishings.
  • Take a stroll around the arboretum or down the winding drive to the Powis Arms public house for a refreshing pint of local beer.
