The Manor & grounds
With its impressive façade, landscaped grounds and ornate interior details, The Manor Holcombe is a fine example of Georgian design. This elegant Grade II listed country home has been sympathetically restored to enhance its original features while introducing all the necessary and more luxurious modern additions to ensure a comfortable stay.
The house is set across three floors with eight beautiful large bedrooms on the top and bottom floors allowing guests to enjoy time together, whilst at the same time, should they wish, to have space to retreat to relax.
Step inside to a grand central gallery hallway with its columns, winding staircase and original stained-glass roof light which showcases the stunning period features. The floor to ceiling Georgian sash windows and doors allow natural light to flood through the interiors. From the ornate embossed ceilings and cornicing to the panelled doors, it feels like a piece of living history. An interesting art collection adorns the walls while a pleasing mix of period furniture alongside modern equipment and soft furnishings will really make you feel at home.
The fully equipped country kitchen and connecting breakfast room provide a vast social space for cooking and entertaining with a range cooker (with two fan ovens), American fridge freezer, Nespresso machine, microwave, two dishwashers and doors to a laundry room. A large and elegant dining room with a long banquet table and log burner is ideal for special celebration meals.
There are plenty of options for indoor entertainment which will appeal to all ages. In a separate games room, there is a full-sized pool table and smart TV while the lounge has a smart TV, DVD player and a small library of books to borrow during your stay. The large drawing room with its plush chairs, log burner and piano, provide a welcoming space for guests to socialize in. A host of family board games are provided.
After long walks in the surrounding countryside, any muddy outside gear can be left in the convenient boot room. You can also shower down your dog here as well-behaved dogs are always welcome at The Manor.
