An enchanting escape to eat, gather and pause. Creative husband and wife duo James and Rebecca Allison have spent the past ten years restoring this once sleeping Georgian beauty back to life. Now a cool 200-acre retreat, the estate welcomes couples, creatives, and families to kick back in the country. The Coach House is at its heart, with bustling courtyard, bedrooms, treatment rooms and Michelin recognised ‘estate to plate’ restaurant using produce from the two-acre walled garden (designed by Tom Stuart-Smith). Thirty-six bedrooms are dotted around the estate, each individually designed to reflect the original buildings, from dairy, to coach house, to potting shed – with parkland views, chunky beams, rough plaster walls and roll top baths. Some have private gardens and tin hot tubs (fed by the estate spring), or open into the kitchen garden or orchard meadow (including the perfectly appointed shepherd’s huts). Book the Farmhouse, picture perfect Hope House in the village, or, for larger groups, entertain in Palladian chic style in the 16 private bed Main House. Phase one of the Forest Spa with outdoor pool is due to open in the summer.
