Country house

Built in 1843 as a Country House of some substance and local significance, 'Abbotshill' was extended, totally refurbished and sub-divided in the 1920's to create two individual dwellings in 'mirror image' East and West wings, each enhancing the scale, elegance and architectural charm of the original structure.

And so, some 166 years on, despite the sympathetic embedding of modern facilities, services and technology, 'Abbotshill' continues to afford a nostalgic opportunity to savour life as we imagine it may once have been in the gracious realm of a bygone age. Our family home for more than 35 years and, just as it was for us all those years ago, it will be 'love at first sight' for you also!

The property normally sleeps up to 8 persons max in 4 bedrooms (1 x twin and 3 x double) but the main bedroom (shown opposite) will accommodate 2 additional children sharing with parents. The bedrooms vary in size and layout, but all will have a colour television + video or DVD, drinks cooler, hair dryer, smoke alarm, and a teasmaid.  All beds are fitted with ‘hollowfibre’ duvets + mattress and pillow protectors, whilst covers, sheets, valances and pillowcases are changed weekly.

Smoking in bedrooms is not permitted on the insistence of our Insurers.
