Little Park House
About the home
STUNNING GRAND COUNTRY HOUSE, near Downton Abbey.
A rural retreat set amidst gently rolling hills, and yet within easy reach of some of the South of England's most important attractions, Little Park House is the perfect, convenient idyll. The tiny village of Brimpton, with its pubs, church and railway station nearby, sits seemingly unaware and certainly unaffected by the vibrant towns and historic cities nearby. Equidistant from Royal Windsor, Bath and Oxford, Little Park House is ideally placed to explore these world famous cities. Newbury Racecourse and Highclere Castle, the setting for Downton Abbey, are both within 15 minutes drive. Bucklebury, the heart of Kate Middleton Country, is also a short 15 minute drive away.
The house benefits from a large heated private pool, with a shallow end perfect for children. The large terraced lawns are great for family games and with plenty of walks in the surrounding countryside it is a stunning location for a family gathering or celebratory weekend. The Grand Hall, at the heart of the house, is ideal for celebrations, comfortably seating up to 50 guests and caterers can be recommended.
The house comfortably sleeps 16 but can accommodate up to 20 and for larger parties of up to 25 there is also an interconnecting flat that can sleep up to an additional 5 guests. Please enquire for prices and availability.
