From country pub to supersized holiday home! The Plough sleeps up to 29 people and wow, it’s amazing! The décor is lovely, with trendy interiors blending to perfection with original features - thick stone walls, big old timbers and wooden floors.
The kitchen is a big light and airy room that’s well-equipped for cooking a big celebratory meal (or for our recommended caterers to come in and do it for you!); the dining room has the original bar from The Plough’s days as a country inn, complete with drinks fridges and stools. There are two long dining tables, and to one end, sofas by a woodburning stove; just the ticket for a hot drink after a winter walk. In the sitting room there’s a big TV and plenty of comfy seating, perfect for a movie night, with big bowls of popcorn to share. Round the corner is a pool table and doors that open onto the garden.
Most of the11 en suite bedrooms have views over the lane to the fields beyond; 9 of them have zip and link beds that can be arranged as superkings or twins, it’s up to you. Bedrooms 1-7 are on the first floor; Bedroom 1 makes a fantastic family room as it sleeps 4 people in zip and link and bunk beds and has an ensuite bathroom with a bath and an overhead shower. Bedrooms 2-7 all have en suite shower rooms; Bedroom 2 has room for an additional single bed (charged extra), Bedroom 3 has a double bed, and Bedroom 4 also has an extra single bed so can sleep 3 people. Bedroom 6 has zip and link beds plus a single and an extra (charged) truckle bed, so again, perfect for a family with two children. Bedroom 7 is right at the end of the landing, overlooking the rear courtyard.
On the ground floor, Bedrooms 8-11 all have en suite shower rooms; Bedroom 10 is another room that can sleep 3 as there’s a single bed as well as the zip and links, and Bedroom 11 is arranged as a twin room.
The garden is to the rear of the house and has a large patio with garden furniture beneath a leafy arbour, made for alfresco dining and for chatting into the small hours beneath the fairy lights. Play croquet on the lawn, relax in the hot tub, it’s what holidays are all about.
