Holiday Rental House
Weir House, set in its own pretty garden, is the biggest and most beautiful of all our cottages. In fact it’s so big, with five en-suite bedrooms, a games room, a drawing room and a dining room, as well as a big kitchen that the word cottage is a bit of a misnomer. The private drive to Weir House is flanked by yew hedges, and leads to a formal gravelled forecourt with box hedges and topiary, and a huge magnolia growing up over the front door. There is a flagged entrance hall with stairs leading up to a galleried landing lit by a round oeil de boeuf window and a large hall lantern. There’s a much loved rocking horse, a doll’s house in a little alcove in the hall, and under the stairs, the children’s den, with dressing-up clothes and a puppet theatre.

In fact it’s so big, with five en-suite bedrooms, a games room, a drawing room and a dining room, as well as a big kitchen that the word cottage is a bit of a misnomer. The private drive to Weir House is flanked by yew hedges, and leads to a formal gravelled forecourt with box hedges and topiary, and a huge magnolia growing up over the front door. There is a flagged entrance hall with stairs leading up to a galleried landing lit by a round oeil de boeuf window and a large hall lantern. There’s a much loved rocking horse, a doll’s house in a little alcove in the hall, and under the stairs, the children’s den, with dressing-up clothes and a puppet theatre. Two windows look out onto the croquet lawn, and a door on the left opens into the dining room, which has a ten-foot antique pine-topped table and a massive sideboard. Through the arch on the left is the kitchen, floored in the same honey coloured Cotswold-stone with Shaker units in Farrow and Ball off-white; a big island unit; a vast American-style side-by-side fridge-freezer with icemaker; a range cooker and two dishwashers. Doors lead out onto the terrace, so lunches and dinners outside under the vine-covered pergola are an enticing summer possibility. Both rooms have underfloor heating. To the left of the kitchen is the utility room and downstairs cloakroom, with space for muddy boots and wet macs by the back door. At the far end of the dining room there’s arch to the oak-floored games room, which is dominated by a 65” plasma television with surround sound; and a wall of bookshelves. On a big evening, two five-foot tables can be added to the dining table, so that in effect the games room becomes an extension of the dining room. (In addition, a round table to seat ten can go into the kitchen). We see Weir House as being the hub of big family gatherings in several cottages, and like Cope, able to provide meals for up to 30 people. Children have a cupboard full of toys, a special table to play on, and beanbags for flopping, as well as their den under the stairs. Opposite the television in the games room is a seating area, with down-cushioned seating units in rosy-red chenille grouped around a large, low, leather-topped table; it’s a wonderful place to sit and chat over coffee or an ice-cold drink. A French door to the right of the TV gives access to the North Terrace. Big double doors and shallow steps lead down into the large drawing room; it has a Gothic arched fireplace in stone, big enough to burn a young tree in, a high-pitched ceiling and massive beams. It occupies the width of the house: the two windows on the left look out onto the North terrace, lawn and flower beds, and the window and French doors on the right have a view over the South terrace, a deep woodland border and trees. The drawing room is altogether softer, gentler and more elegant than the games room; it has a large Savonnerie style rug, and is decorated in rosy-red, ochre and off white. A huge ottoman sits between the fire and a long three seater sofa; on each side of the fireplace are two small antique buttoned French chairs, and in addition, large comfortable armchairs. This is the place to read, chat or watch a romantic comedy when there’s cricket on next door in the games room. More
