Description

WE ARE OFFERING A 30% REDUCTION ON ALL NEW 'RULE OF SIX' BOOKINGS IN 2020!!

Beechwood House is a magnificent period home dating back to the late eighteen hundreds providing a wonderful example of spacious Victorian grandeur. Peacefully situated on the fringe of the picturesque village of Fulbourn, it is conveniently located just five miles from the historic City of Cambridge and less than an hour from the heart of London.

The property has recently undergone a substantial facelift, and whilst retaining many of its original features it has been carefully and tastefully extended, creating a traditional atmosphere blended with the comfort of modern day living. There are also two studio apartments adjacent to the main house (at additional cost) which can be taken if required.

The bright and airy interior opens out into the most beautifully established and traditional English garden which backs onto open countryside, providing an oasis of unrushed tranquillity and seclusion.

Accommodation details:

The walled driveway provides ample parking for up to five cars and has a covered arched shelter for bicycles. The main entrance to Beechwood House opens into a reception hall with guest cloakroom, which runs through the centre of the property. To the left of the reception hall is a large modern kitchen with a central granite-top work island along with all required accessories, plus a pantry and utility room.

Leading on from the open plan kitchen is a large combined living and dining room with flagstone floor (under-floor heating) and large glazed front which opens out into the garden and provides a wonderfully bright and airy aspect. The dining table is set for 10 people, but has an extension for four additional places.

To the side of the dining room is an additional reception room with a high glazed ceiling, which also leads out into the garden and has a second cloakroom with shower/wet-room.

The westerly side of the entrance hall opens into the very large sitting room which has an open fire and half-moon bay window looking out over the garden. There is also a small conservatory and the main room has midway dividing doors should a more cosy atmosphere be sought.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms, two bathrooms and an additional shower room. The master bedroom has a super king bed, two bedrooms have double beds and two have twin singles. An additional bed (£30) can be put in two of the bedrooms, sleeping a maximum of 12 people.

Outside: Set in established grounds and beautiful garden, the south facing rear of Beechwood House provised privacy and seclusion with lush lawns and colourful borders. Opening out on to a spacious terrace with barbecue and seating area, al fresco dining is an absolute delight at certain times of the year.

For the more energetic guests, there is badminton, a croquet set and two bicycles at guests' disposal. Along the Easterly border of the garden is the 'pool house' with the private heated indoor swimming pool. The swimming pool is 8m x4m in dimension and the depth is 1m at the shallow end and 2m at the deep end with integral roman steps and is heated all year round.

Our standard cleaning service is full preparation for your arrival and a change of bed linen and light clean weekly thereafter. We are happy to arrange a more frequent service if required as follows:

• Extra cleaning at £15 per hour

• Change of all bed linen & towels at £15 per bed

A unique opportunity to rent and experience one of Cambridge's finest traditional landmark properties.
