Go through the porch at Hesdin Hall to the most awesome kitchen, a big sociable space with everything you need for your large group holiday; great for relaxing and entertaining. Off to the side is the ‘back’ staircase and a utility room with an ice machine and laundry facilities, straight ahead is a stunning glass dining room with a huge handcrafted table and bifold 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 anytime 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 colourful chairs and sofas. A wide hallway leads to the front door and the main staircase; to the right is the cinema 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!).
On the first floor a landing takes you to Bedrooms 1-4, all with en suite 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 en suite shower rooms and zip and link beds. Bedroom 7 has a free standing bath in the bedroom and room for an 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 air hockey. There’s also a communal field with football goals, a sunken trampoline and climbing frame, somewhere kids can get together and play safely, or where you can have picnics. There are very special memories to be made at Hesdin and we know you’ll love it here; book your stay today!

Note that Hesdin Hall is within the private 20 acre Hesdin Estate; there are other properties on the estate undergoing renovation for letting with Group Stays so it is possible that you may hear building works being undertaken during your stay. This will be kept to a minimum and there will be no works at weekends. During the week the builders finish at 5pm Mon-Thurs and at 3pm on Fri. The entrance to Hesdin Hall is not used by anyone other than guests staying at the house and the walled garden is very private.
