Toad Hall is a property full of character and below are a few highlights:
- Oak doors, floors & skirting with all the conveniences of modern living including:
- Widescreen digital TV
- All of the beds have the option of being doubles or twins. The maximum number of single beds is 14 but if you are looking for mainly double rooms the maximum number is 6 with just 2 single beds.
The Bedrooms: There are six bedrooms which are all en-suite. They are all beautifully appointed with co-ordinated fabrics and oak doors, floors and skirting.
The beds are all 6 ft doubles or 3ft twins, with the flexibility to have either doubles or twins in any room to accommodate your group in the most comfortable layout. Two of the bedrooms have an additional bed to you accommodate larger groups.
The Bathrooms: In addition to the 6 en suite bathrooms (five with showers and one with a bath), there are additional separate shower and toilet facilities on the ground floor to avoid anyone having to wait – we have tried to think of everything.
Dining Room/ Sitting Room: This grand room, with its traditional oak floors, is very large at over 55 square metres or 600 square feet. This is a fantastic family room but can also be used for larger diners or meetings. A large solid wood dining table looks out onto your own private enclosed courtyard which is beautifully lit in the evenings. The easy chairs and sofas look out over the secluded patio and the private garden beyond, leading to fields and trees and sometimes early in the morning deer appearing out of the wood.
Toad Hall is the ideal venue for that special dinner and can accommodate very large groups of up to 28 people for dinner.
Kitchen: This is a fully equipped, modern fitted kitchen. It has a large electric range cooker, dishwasher, large fridge, a separate freezer and a washer / dryer. It has everything you need to help prepare that special meal.
|Further details outdoors|
Garden: The large garden is totally private and has a patio and BBQ area, complete with patio furniture, for al fresco dining. The garden is enclosed and is an ideal place for children to explore and play games.
Swimming Pool: The shared swimming pool is a short walk from Toad Hall, situated next to Pendennis (another of our properties). It is covered and heated (open April – October) and is ideal for children. Guests have their own key and can use it at any time during their stay.
Parking: Toad Hall has secure private parking for up to 10 cars, with additional parking available if required.
If you'd like to try something different and have a guide to show you the area why not book a Nordic walking lesson.

"Perfect - "Above and beyond the call of duty""
We arrived in the depths of the March 2013 winter - one of the party got stuck on the road in the snow. Eaton Manor's Nichola and her dad organised both co-ordination with the services AND dad actually did the pick up for the two stranded members of the party. We're talking 3:00AM in the morning - unbelievable support! Not to mention picking up another family member from the station AND collecting the shopping. Gold medals all round here! Fantastic accommodation (en-suites all rooms), very comfortable and spacious. Do treat yourself to catering for at least one night - excellent meal and service, a real treat (and we had a couple of chefs with us who couldn't fault it).
I can't think of a group of people this wouldn't suite.
The most welcoming and helpful place I've ever been to. We'll be back!
Thank you for your kind words - it was our pleasure to be able to help your group out, especially given the extreme weather conditions! We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to Eaton Manor in the future.
