Perks for the Parents

This elegant English country house near Stonehenge is ideal for family and friends who want to get together in style. It sleeps 22 people in 15 beds, plus there are 5 travel cots and 2 fold out single beds. It’s a great set up for entertaining with a full kitchen with an American fridge / freezer, pantry, double oven and a traditional Aga. There are multiple reception / TV rooms, a games room and a dining room that fits 14 adults (20 at a squeeze). Nine of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and the downstairs 10th room has a private bathroom and is ideal for an au pair or nanny. There is also a lovely 1-bedroom apartment on the estate that could be used for additional space at additional cost.

Why Kids Love it

Kids of all ages will enjoy the house and grounds, especially the horses that are in the fields out front – pony rides may be possible by separate arrangement with the livery. Younger children love the proximity to Peppa Pig World and Longleat Safari Park, woods walks, feeding or riding the horses, toys in the basement, swings, sandpit and the ‘secret’ walled garden. There is a playground 10 minutes’ walk away. The older ones will enjoy exploring Stonehenge and the Old Sarum Iron Age settlement near Salisbury, as well as the multi-sports table for pool, table tennis and air hockey in the recreation room downstairs. The children’s rooms are elegantly comfortable for all ages.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. The stairs don’t have stair gates but can be provided and installed on request. Any baby or child equipment can be provided on request. Guests are welcome to visit the stables but must take care around the horses. Pets are permitted with prior permission from owner, only those that will not scare the horses in the stables and fields nearby are allowed. Children cannot get into the horses’ fields without climbing a fence but may be able to stray to the stables, although horses won’t be outside a stable without their owner nearby. There is a pond in the walled garden, which is gated with a high latch. The house has a 14ft round steel-framed pool (above ground) with solar mats for heating (which heat the water in the sunny months). PLEASE NOTE: There is an additional VAT charge of 20% on the whole stay. VAT NUMBER: 382284580

About the Location

This ‘pocket manor’ house is located in the village of Shrewton, Wiltshire, England. It’s 6 mins drive from Stonehenge and 25 minutes’ drive from the bustling market town of Salisbury. Shrewton (3 mins by car) has a Co-Op supermarket and a bakery. The village has just 1 pub, which doesn't serve food (a fish and chips van comes on Tuesday nights and pizza van on Thursday nights), but serves local ales and gives insight into the genuine West Country characters that live in Shrewton. The restaurant at Rollestone Manor serves white table-cloth style dining. Family friendly attractions within a 45-minute drive include Messum’s Art Gallery & Café and Bowood House and Gardens. Fly into London Heathrow (1 hr, 20 mins) or Gatwick (1 hr, 45 mins).

Accommodation Details

This Grade II listed, Regency house is set in 25 acres of private Wiltshire woods and countryside to explore. It has 10 bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms. On the entrance level is a drawing room, study, dining room, gourmet kitchen with dining, utility room and library (with a kingsize sofabed and ensuite, wheelchair accessible as the 10th bedroom). Upstairs are 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms; 8 of these are ensuite and 1 has a private bathroom across the landing instead. There are 7 rooms for adults with kingsize and super kingsize beds and 3 kids’ rooms – 1 with 4 twin / singles and 2 with 2 twin / singles each. Two fold-out single beds that can be put in any room, as well. On basement level is a recreation / games room with a multi-sports table for pool, table tennis and air hockey and lots of toys. Outside is a large lawn area for sunbathing, reading and relaxing, a walled garden with a frog pond and a child-friendly path through the woods in the back of the house.

Style Notes

Regency style with a modern touch. This truly wonderful country house has period details and charm by the bucket load with original windows, fireplaces, high ceilings and a grand, sweeping central staircase. The large reception rooms decorated in old English country style have picture windows that look out to the green fields and extensive grounds. The recently renovated kitchen has more of a contemporary country feel with its sleek, white worktops. Furniture is eclectic in rich colors. All of the bathrooms upstairs have been recently renovated and respect the history of the house, as do the bedrooms. We love the anti-minimalist interiors filled with interesting detail and history, the gorgeous wide landing with a chaise longue, and the enchanting gardens, ripe for exploration.

We are 40-something year old parents of three lovely rascals. We decided to keep and sustainably renovate the house we inherited to make it a cosy, eco-friendly, country sanctuary we can share with others.

Wiltshire, England

History, mystery and eccentricity

You could be forgiven for feeling that you’re in a costume drama: Wiltshire’s pretty market towns, chocolate box villages and peculiarly English thatched cottages are as quaint and historic as it gets. Add to that mist-shrouded stone circles - not just Stonehenge, but also the lesser-visited but just as mystical Avebury - plus a sensational vintage circus that tours the countryside in the summer, grand stately homes and some unexpectedly edgy art galleries and you'll discover a county bursting at the seams with history, mystery and English eccentricity.

We went to Shrewton House to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary and it was perfect. The house is absolutely beautiful and has everything you could possibly need from the kitchen to the playroom. Victoria was very helpful and quick to answer any questions. Would thoroughly recommend.
