This beautiful Grade II listed country retreat is the perfect place for a large family or group of friends to escape to the country and celebrate any occasion in glorious surroundings.
This magnificent property was once an old hunting lodge, situated in the heart of a working arable farm, ideal for keen walkers as the Staffordshire Way footpath crosses the farm. Close to the village of Abbots Bromley, with pubs, Indian restaurant, café and a village shop and nearby luxury spa Hoar Cross Hall. Just a short drive away is the Market town of Uttoxeter with shops, pubs, a weekly market, golf course and Uttoxeter Racecourse. Shugborough Estate is only a short drive, part of the National Trust with lots to explore. Visit the Potteries, a must visit destination for lovers of pottery with factory tours, visitor centres, museums and shops. Slightly further afield and for the young at heart, take a day out at Drayton Manor Theme Park or Alton Towers. On arriving, step through the front door into the large panelled entrance hall, from here you will find the spacious drawing room with comfortable seating to relax on in front of the TV and the inviting open fire. The formal dining room is set for all to sit and enjoy an evening meal with family and friends whilst planning the next days adventures. The large farmhouse kitchen with breakfast table and chairs is fully equipped for the chef of the household to cook up a storm, including an electric Range oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and two dishwashers, so no washing up afterwards.
