The Main House

Completed in 1912 and turning heads ever since, its world-famous architect, Edwin Lutyens, considered it amongst his finest achievements. Described by historian ASG Butler as “the supreme rendering of the full Georgian idiom,” The Main House offers 8 impressive bedrooms, connected by grand staircases and elegant landings.

The first floor holds the Master Bedrooms of the original owners, the Farrer Brothers. Equally shared, these offer lofty ceilings, towering windows and views to suit each brother’s taste. Above, the Guest Bedrooms follow the same floor plan, just as generously sized for the Farrers’ aristocratic guests but more dashingly decorated.

The mod cons are all here now, of course, but the character and quirkiness of a Grade I listed building shine through at every turn. Each room is individually styled, home to original art and antique furniture.

Take a look through the gallery below and see which one will form the best backdrop to your stay.
