Former wing of a 19th century manor house and idyllic rural retreat. Following the private drive through stunning parkland provides instant calm. Although only 23 miles from central London this peaceful sanctuary feels 'Far From The Madding Crowd.' Two bedrooms sleep 4-5 in a Kingsize and Double room sharing a large family bathroom. Full use of the whole house and large garden with ingredients for self catered breakfast included. Host lives here in private rooms during these type of stays.
There are two bedrooms located on the first floor. For the first two guests staying, the large kingsize room (1 x Kingsize bed) overlooks the garden and has private use of the large family bathroom with underfloor heating. An electric raised airbed can be added to this room to accommodate a third person sharing.
The second more cosy double room (1 x double bed) overlooks the leafy courtyard and is only available as further accommodation for the same booking. This ensures freedom to use the whole house and only share the bathroom with friends or family. For short bookings (up to six days) please note that I usually live here (in private rooms) while guests are staying. The door to the hosts area shares the first floor landing with the guests bedrooms. Once guests arrive the whole house is their 'home from home' and treated as such.
Both bedrooms are equipped with TV/Freeview Channels and full tea/coffee making facilities. These can be replenished anytime from the guest supplies in the kitchen.
Basic essentials like towels, shampoo, liquid soap and shower gel are included along with new spare toothbrushes, toothpaste and other toiletry items provided for guests who may have forgotten something or are traveling light. There is an iron and ironing board, hairdryer, travel cot and basic camp bed (with sleeping bag and extra pillows) for children.
Described by several guests as 'magical' this home is a former wing of an historic manor that in the past has been a girls school and a monastery complete with it's own private chapel. Hidden away in a vast parkland estate with it's own large private garden it is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Children up to 5 years old are FREE when sharing their parent's bedroom. If you would like your child (whatever age) to have their own room then please select an additional guest(s) when requesting to book.
SINGLE OCCUPANCY: Please note if you would like to book for two guests but each require their own room please let me know when enquiring to confirm the price before booking. There is an additional supplement for single occupancy in both rooms calculated at the applicable rate per night multiplied by 2 but reduced by £10. As an example, a booking for two people with single occupancy in both rooms for one night with a nightly rate of £70 would be £70 times two minus ten pounds, therefore £130.
NEW from March 2016: A further Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom (allowing accommodation for 6-8 adults) is also available. Copy and paste this link to go to this separate listing.
Check-in is from 3:00 PM local time and checkout is by 12:00 PM local time. Guests have full use of the home (except private host's suite) which includes a large, elegant but comfortable drawing room, large kitchen/diner, laundry facilities in the utility area and large private patio and garden surrounded by mature trees and a meadow.

The guests private bedroom(s) and bathroom is on the first floor and shares the large landing with the door to the host's private rooms.

Interakcija s gostima
All guests will usually be welcomed personally and settled in by myself or other family member. Although my hosting style is aimed at independent travelers looking for privacy and peace and quiet, I am always on hand at the house (or easily contactable) if guests need any assistance during their stay.

The health, safety and well being of ourselves, neighbours and guests is paramount.

Born, raised and lived in London, committed urbanite, ex graphic designer and studio owner ... AKA recovering workaholic. After more than 20 years running my own small business I made a major life change to one of balance.
Having re-trained I enjoyed some years as a Progressive Kinesiology Practitioner and emergency/respite foster carer for children and young people with learning differences and behaviour challenges. Now pretty much retired, I share my peaceful haven by hosting individual guests via Airbnb and small group events involving relaxation and self development.
As a guest I treat wherever I stay with the utmost respect and appreciate privacy and clean, uncluttered spaces. I like to think I'm an easy, warm and friendly guest and always do my best to leave a place as lovely as I found it.
As a host, I have two types of listings for my own home. One is for up to 2 rooms with private bathroom and a self catered breakfast included. As a host, although I still (usually) live at home during these bookings, it's in my own private rooms. All guests are welcomed personally and settled in but from then on, they can relax and enjoy the rest of the house and garden to themselves.
The other is an 'entire house' listing which accommodates 6 people in 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms but can be increased to sleep 8 with the addition of an extra bed. This works more like a regular holiday let but for short stays I leave the house fully equipped with products, tea and coffee making facilities in all bedrooms including fresh milk. I personally welcome and check guests in. Although I'm not here during these bookings I am always available by phone or facetime if guests need anything.
My Life motto is: "Commit Random Acts Of Kindness.”
