Sheepscombe House, Gloucestershire

One of the South's most magnificent manor houses, not far from London Paddington station. A spectacular city break awaits

Sheepscombe House is magnificent Georgian Manor House set in a stunning location surrounded on two sides by its own fields; one of which is home to its private herd of Alpacas. The interiors blend traditional features with contemporary design, making it an impeccable, yet comfortable, haven in the valleys.

The kitchen/breakfast room is equipped for both ambitious amateurs or professional chefs; you’ll find both a six-ring double oven range cooker and a wood-fired Rayburn range here. The room leads out into the modern conservatory/dining room and private terrace, perfect for outdoor dining.
