For a truly bespoke stay in the heart of an exclusive 4,000 acre estate in stunning Jane Austen country, you need look no further than Farleigh Wallop. This incredible Georgian property set in the idyllic Hampshire countryside boasts eleven bedrooms, and can accommodate up to twenty-one guests for anything from family holidays and corporate events, to hunting groups and private parties.
During your stay your every whim will be catered for by the incredible team of in-house professionals, from the daily turn down service and creating fresh flower arrangements throughout the house, to keeping the fires lit all winter and the outdoor pool heated all summer.
This breathtakingly luxurious English estate has had links with royalty for almost a thousand years, and with its incredibly decadent interior design and plethora of high-end amenities you too can live like British aristocracy. Eight reception rooms and a grand formal dining room offer guests endless possibilities of where to relax and entertain, some rooms with a spacious open feel and others with a cosier vibe. All are decorated to an incredibly high standard in beautiful tones of cream and gold. Rich terracotta shades add a warming glow – especially when paired with a roaring open fire and ornate lighting fixtures, and there are deep reds and royal blues in the luxurious soft furnishings.
Farleigh Wallop is certainly steeped in history which seeps from every pore, and this is reflected in the incredible works of art on display in every room, yet this palatial residence definitely doesn’t skimp on modern contemporary touches, such as TV with streaming Media Player, Sonos Sound System, wireless internet access, Espresso coffee machine, games console, and an incredible cinema room where the whole family can snuggle down for a movie night, as well as a billiards room.
Farleigh Wallop features ten double rooms and a single as well nine bathrooms, many of which are en-suite, all decorated in the same opulent style as the reception rooms. Incredibly spacious and light with huge windows that offer breathtaking views over the grounds, each room features large comfortable beds dressed in 100% Egyptian cotton linen. A neutral colour palette has been used throughout these rooms with walls and carpets in various shades of fresh cream, taupe, and stone. Colour accents are subtle and tasteful; powder blues and light olive hues, and furniture is solid in rich dark woods, as are the ornately framed mirrors and artworks. This fresh clean decor is replicated in the bathrooms, with fresh white suites and luxurious deep tubs, the perfect place to relax with a glass of something after a busy day of being waited on hand and foot.
No rambling country estate would be complete without spectacular grounds to enjoy, and Farleigh Wallop certainly does not disappoint. Ten acres of gardens are yours to explore, including a kitchen garden providing fresh produce for the guests, and a cuttings garden that supplies the house with fresh flowers throughout the year. There’s also an elegant glasshouse and a classic English rose garden, as well as a serpentine walk and sculpture pond. An orchard and boating lake – home to koi carp – can also be found on the grounds, as well as tennis court and cricket pitch with pavilion, and of course the glorious heated swimming pool, which is open May to September.
