English Country House

This is a magnificent 17th century property with a relaxed, country house atmosphere. Set in 500 acres of parkland, lake and woods originally created by the legendary Capability Brown, it is the perfect retreat. The house nestles in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside, and gives a feeling of total seclusion from everywhere. Sheep graze in the fields and birds sing in the trees, it really is idyllic.

Moving beyond its wonderful pastoral setting, this is an impressive House. Designed with entertainment in mind, it has been the setting for hospitality, fine living and country pursuits over the centuries in true country house tradition. Elegant and beautifully decorated reception rooms provide inspiring spaces for dining, relaxing and working, and are complemented by individually designed bedrooms that reflect the style of their creators: famous names from the fashion and interior design world have all contributed to the hotel’s decor.

All the rooms are elegantly decorated and sumptuously furnished in a traditional style, catering for large scale banquets and conferences, with many options for smaller groups. As well as the larger event spaces there are a selection of additional reception rooms for relaxing, informal meetings and drinks parties including the impressive Saloon at the heart of the House, the delightful drawing room, the Library and the Morning room. This really is a House with a room for every occasion.

Whether you are indulging yourself and friends with the ultimate house party celebration, looking for a romantic wedding venue or seeking an exceptional property with professional service for a prestigious corporate retreat, this property will exceed your expectations.

Country pursuits have long been a tradition here and the vast Estate provides plenty of space for all sorts of outdoor activities from tennis and croquet to shooting and falconry. A relaxing spa with swimming pool is an indulgent place to while away a few hours, and for the more active the gym or Championship Level Golf course complete the excellent facilities.

This is a wonderful venue for your occasion, and with exclusive use you really will have your very own country house.
