This charming house, which – yes – has accommodated caretakers at the estate for 300 years, sleeps four to eight guests and can only be booked for exclusive use. After all, you’ll want this beautifully preserved manse all to yourselves, and it has everything needed to make you feel at home, including staff to welcome you with a drink (champagne, homemade brandy, wine), prepare breakfast and afternoon tea, clear snow, stoke fireplaces and stoves, clean and act as a concierge. There’s an expansive outdoor deck with lush green views to relax on and throughout the interior there are wood beams, brightened with white walls and modern furnishings in tasteful pastel hues. You’ll have a fully-equipped kitchen with an induction cooker and oven; a large refrigerator filled with soft drinks, beer, wine, and champagne; Nespresso coffee-machine; cornflower-blue cabinets; and Tom Dixon lighting. Plus there’s direct access to a peaceful terrace. The dining room sits up to 10, the peaceful library has books and board games, and the cosy TV room has a Playstation and streaming services. Guests sleep in four bedrooms, each with its own individual charms (beams, soft hues, mid-century furnishings and large tiled stoves), an Egyptian-cotton-dressed king-size bed and an ensuite bathroom (two with a walk-in shower, two with a shower over a bath tub, and L’Occitane bath products; and some have a Carrara marble sink). After a day of exploring you can unwind in your own sanarium (with White Company bathrobes), and there’s free WiFi throughout.
