Historic house accommodation

Springhead House is now available for rental, offering spacious and comfortable accommodation for family groups, wedding guests and other visitors.

Accommodation for up to ten people is available in the historic Springhead House.  This listed building is made up of a range of thatched cottages (to the right of the photograph above) dating from the early 17th century.  Renovated in the summer of 2018, the house has a wealth of period features and has been decorated in antique colours and floral patterns giving it a rustic, vintage feel.

There are two super king or twin bedrooms on the first floor, and additional people can be accommodated in a third room on the first floor which has two sofa beds. Towels and linen are provided. As well as the en suite shower room, there is a separate toilet and shower on the first floor (there are no toilet or washing facilities on the ground floor).

The garden bedroom (below) is a beautiful en suite room with large windows and views over the garden and lake. It is furnished with a Kingsize bed, dressing table, full length mirror and tea and coffee making facilities

The Wisteria room (below) has a double bed

The Flying room (below)  has two sofa beds and views over the garden from a bay window

The Snug (below), on the ground floor, is a small sitting room on the ground floor for the exclusive use of wedding guests using the upstairs bedrooms. It also has a sofa bed (and the option of an additional single bed should that be required)

Additional bath and wash rooms are on the first floors
