Central heating

When you step through the front door of Hill Place, you will feel transported to another life. Filled with the most wonderful antiques and sumptuous soft furnishings, the house is quite exquisite.

The bedrooms are beautifully furnished, with comfortable bedding and cushions - televisions and DVD players in each room. Bathrooms are finished to an exceptionally high standard with five bathrooms throughout including two en suite shower/bath rooms.

The owners can organise anything you wish for… from country sports to cooking master classes, sailing to buggy racing, anything you can think of! If you do not wish to create your own delicious meals, they can arrange caterers to do it all for you!

But then again, you may want to curl up on one of the sofas in front of a log fire and read - either choose from the library or pick up a magazine, and totally relax. Just gazing out of the window at the ever changing view or exploring the 2 acre garden is a real treat! For warm summer days and evenings there is a BBQ and outside seating.

Hill Place is the perfect location for your wedding – you can organise as much or as little of the day as you wish.

For whatever reason you are gathering together, a family celebration, a reunion or just getting together with friends, you could not pick a more quintessentially English country setting!
