In its former existence Hesdin Hall was a big Georgian farmhouse; now it’s a beautiful large group holiday house that sleeps 18 in 8 ensuite bedrooms and has room for 6 more guests at an extra charge each. You’ll have so much to keep you smiling – a heated pool, hot tub, sauna, games room and movie room, so something for all ages and all weather!
Go through the porch into the kitchen, a big sociable space that’s great for relaxing and entertaining. Behind a door is the ‘back’ staircase, to the side there’s a utility room with an ice machine and laundry facilities; straight ahead is a stunning glass dining room with a long handcrafted table and bi-fold doors that open onto the terrace.
The walled garden is south facing, so it’s perfect for barbecues and lazy days spent by the pool or soaking in the hot tub. There’s an outdoor kitchen on the terrace with a barbecue, pizza oven and firepit, ample outdoor furniture, and outdoor table tennis. Steps lead up to a lawn and to the pool and hot tub, both are kept warm by an electrically operated cover so can be used any time of year. At the top of the garden a gate gives views across the fields of the 20 acre Hesdin estate.
To the right of the kitchen is the living room, an elegant room with a peaceful ambience, and so stylish with sumptuous and colourful chairs and sofas. A wide hallway leads to the front door (not used) and the main staircase; to the right is the movie room, to the left the Library, where doors lead back through to the kitchen and dining area (it’s a great house for hide and seek!). Interiors are an eclectic mix of modern meets vintage, with quirky accessories and bold colours; it works and it’s wonderful.
On the first floor a landing takes you to Bedrooms 1-4, all with ensuite shower rooms and except for Bedroom 4, all with zip and link beds that can be arranged as super kings or twins. Bedroom 1 has room for an extra single bed, Bedroom 3 has room for 2 more, and Bedroom 4 has sturdy handcrafted bunk beds that are comfortable enough for adults. Bedrooms 5-8 are on the second floor, all with ensuite shower rooms and zip and link beds. Bedroom 7 also has a free standing bath in the bedroom and an optional extra single bed. Bedrooms 5 and 8 can also sleep one extra person.
The games room, in a separate building at the front of the house, has a pool table and a big TV. At the front of Hesdin Hall there's a private field where you can enjoy leisurely picnics or a game of rounders. There are very special memories to be made at Hesdin Hall, times you’ll never forget.
