This secluded mansion has an owl barn and a dovecote, and plays host to red kites, herons, barn owls, mallard and many smaller feathered friends; it really is 'for the birds'. Perfect for large families or groups of friends looking for a rural escape, this is a fun-filled countryside haven. Comprising six acres of luxury fittings, high-class amenities and verdant scenery – you could spend days here and never wish to leave.
The active types – usually the kids – are entertained by the dart board or the table tennis in the games room. Away from the splendour of your pastoral palace, there is a golf course, horse riding and cycling routes in the nearby area.
For those of you that prefer a more relaxing break, fishing spots are an idyllic place to while away the hours. Or pamper yourself at the nearby Red Barn Retreat beauty salon in the village, which offers an array of massages and treatments. But you don't even need to leave your home to indulge in a weekend of grandeur.
A private chef is available to rustle up some top-rate food in the kitchen, giving you a taste of Michelin class dishes. For a more intimate escape, you can keep things low-key with homemade food and drinks in the cosy living room.
