Honeystone Manor

The best of the Cotswolds right outside your door

Honeystone Manor

A little piece of history…

… a whole lot of comfort

line

In an area that is steeped in English history, this is the perfect base from which to explore the area while experiencing the joys of living in a house that has been part of that history over the years and yet still gives you all the benefits of twenty-first century comforts and technology! This is a house to be thoroughly enjoyed. The property reflects its seventeenth century beginnings with tasteful decor bringing out the charm of the old exposed beams, the stone floors, the open stone fireplaces and the panelled walls. Set in enclosed private grounds, it exudes both elegance and class. As is invariably the way with older houses, it has been extended, developed and improved over the centuries, but it has always been sympathetic to the original architecture, making this a wonderfully characterful historic home. And a home it truly is, with interior decor created with a view to luxury, comfort and history. This home is a favourite of ours and it always makes us feel as though we are living a little bit of history. Oh, and you can bring the dog too!

From £1,750 for a 3 night stay

Based on a low season weekend stay

Accommodates up to 10

In 5 characterful bedrooms (with 4 bathrooms)

In beautiful Warwickshire

In the village of Stourton, located in the north eastern corner of the Cotswolds.

Room to relax…

Downstairs, the drawing room is the perfect focal point for evening drinks, afternoon tea or a quiet snooze by the large open fire. Of course there is WiFi throughout so you can keep on top of those emails if you really must, and Sky TV if you want to sit back and enjoy a movie. The adjacent library is a perfect spot for catching up on the classic novels or putting the world to rights over a glass of single malt. The rugs on the floor, the subtle shades of the paintwork on the walls, the uplighters, scatter cushions and fireplaces, all serve to  make these rooms elegant, comfortable, and charming, in turn making you feel very much at home.

…room to socialise

The dining room boasts a huge limestone fireplace, wonderful wood panelling, an inglenook and impressive drapes creating a magnificent rural style. And, of course, there are elegant glasses, dining sets and crockery to match, all creating a wonderful ambience for home dining. Next door, the kitchen is the perfect setting for creating wonderful dishes. With the Belfast sink, the range cooker and the SMEG fridge, the kitchen itself creates that perfect rural ambience. If cooking is your thing, you will have a whale of a time perfecting scrumptious meals, but if you’d rather not, we can provide somebody to cook for you.

Oh sleep! Oh gentle sleep!

Shakespeare may have bequeathed his second best bed to his wife, Anne Hathaway, but there really are no second bests when it comes to a good night’s sleep here! All in all there are five bedrooms and they are all delightful in their own way. The wood panelling in bedroom 1 ensures that that historic feel is never far away. The super-king-sized bed is pure luxury and you can be sure of a good night’s sleep, perchance to dream. The en suite bathroom carries through that feeling of luxury with its freestanding bathtub with an overhead shower. We love the wall-mounted cistern with the pull chain. That takes us back!

Bedrooms 2 and 3 are also on the first floor and they share an equally luxurious bathroom, again with a freestanding bath and a shower attachment. The wood panelling theme is carried through to the second bedroom, which features a comfy king-size bed with crisp white linen, cushions and pillows aplenty, and a plethora of character and comfort. So, too has the third bedroom with its super-king-sized bed, characterful exposed beams and stylish Oriental furnishings.

On up to the second floor where there are two more bedrooms. Bedroom 4 makes a great  family room with a single bed as well as the super-king-size bed. It also has a cosy seating area. And the fifth bedroom features a fantastically quirky single four poster! This room just oozes character and charm and is great for solo guests. The second floor also features another great bathroom and a laundry room.

Honeystone Manor

Plenty to do whatever the weather!

One thing about this house, you need never be bored! Whether you are looking for a genteel walk around the elegant gardens, a strenuous game of tennis or a long walk in the countryside, there is no shortage of things to do both at the house itself and further afield. The house has WiFi, TV and a library so if you just want to chill out reading, catching a movie or emailing your mates, you’re sorted! Next door to the house the barn has a mini-billiards table and a TV with soft furnishings, making it a great place to relax on a rainy afternoon. Why not recapture your youth with some of the board games on offer? There is also a mini-gym with weights, a couple of exercise bikes and a shower to freshen up afterwards. There is also a tennis court so no shortage of activities without even leaving the property!

The nearest golf club is just a mile and a half away and there is a riding school just ten minutes away by car. Of course there are some absolutely delightful walks in the area with magnificent views of lots of beautiful cottages, churches and other buildings to enjoy. Why not stroll to Whichford Mill and explore the history of the two mills that have been there since 1086? Or visit the Cotswold Distillery or the Cotswold Decorative Ironworkers, all within easy walking distance. The nearest pub is less than ten minutes walk away so it is ideal for a relaxing lunch or an early-evening pint. Of course, the Cotswolds has over 3,000 miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore, with beautiful ancient woodlands, wildflower meadows, stunning scenery. And with year round markets, fetes, festivals and sports gatherings, you’re bound to find something that tickles your fancy. And this is just the property to do it from!
