Historic house accommodation

Historic house accommodation is expected to be available for bookings from April 2019

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 now provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for wedding guests, family groups and other visitors. 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 three principle double or twin bedrooms on the first floor, and additional people can be accommodated on double sofa beds in two further rooms:

The garden bedroom: This beautiful en suite room has views over the garden and lake and a King size bed

  • The Wisteria room has a double bed
  • The Magnolia room has twin beds
  • The Flying Room room has a sofa bed
  • There is also a sofa bed in the Snug on the ground floor

Guests in Springhead House have exclusive access to the ground floor rooms – a music room/library, the painted dining room (decorated throughout by the London Group artist Harold Squire, who lived and worked at Springhead in the 1920s), a small sitting room and a kitchen.

The delightful cottage-style garden is available for the exclusive use of guests in the historic house accommodation. Visitors also have access to the rest of the gardens and grounds.

Rental costs
The historic house accommodation can be rented from £500 a weekend. Day hire, week and mid-week accommodation is also available. Please contact us to discuss availability and prices.
