The house is medieval with an additional early 20th century wing, a combination of formality, great comfort, classic good looks and a hint of eccentricity. Cosy in parts, and grand in others, at its heart is a feeling of well-being, contentment and welcome.
Furnished throughout with beautiful antiques, rich furnishings, soft sofas and cushions, there are rooms big enough for shared activities and smaller rooms for individual pursuits. Family paintings, portraits and artefacts collected by many generations of ancestors sit easily alongside toy boxes and contemporary play equipment.
Wifi is available but you might feel tempted to disconnect yourself from the modern world and browse the 5000 books, play endless games of hide and seek or enjoy some scrabble in front of the comfortingly flickering and crackling open fire.
If Park House is taken separately to Park Cottage, guests have shared access to the children’s playground and the walled Badminton Garden.
