The Downstairs Areas

Our drawing room, the library, the sunroom and ball room can best be described as cosy with an Edwardian country house feel. It has many little areas to sit together, talk, read, work or just enjoy being there. But in the same breath, there are also areas that can accommodate all the guests in one room at one time – be it for a meal together, a speech, a workshop or to share a space as a group.

The sunroom is a wonderful relaxing space – a wood burning stove creates a beautiful light and atmosphere, the floor to ceiling windows overlook the gardens and woodlands – a special space to chat and relax, read a newspaper, eat cake or drink wine.

The drawing & dining room is an open plan “country house” space able to seat 36 people around three table islands or 50 people in a t-shape table formation. There are large Edwardian bay windows overlooking the grounds, a few steps lead down to the sunroom.

The library is the perfect space for quiet or smaller activities, i.e. board or video games, reading – obviously – or making it into a little cinema for the children. This room is also used as the bar for large family parties of over 100 guests.

The ball or games room is the perfect large indoor space – to dance, play pool, play table tennis or other games, to run around, have a disco, céilidh dance, karaoke sing along and much more. Big double french doors lead onto a west facing decking area and the bonfire pit.
