Luxury, elegance, history: the North Wing

Estate – 15.02.18

 

There’s nothing more exciting than discovering the charm of a new area and immersing yourself in the centuries of stories of a historic building. So, we’ve delved into the most historic part of the estate – the beautifully restored North Wing

Your North Wing journey starts before you even see the house: first, take in the acres of rolling countryside as you enter the Combermere gates. Roll down the windows and breathe in the country air as you pass fields, lakes and woodland – all private and yours to explore together.

As you approach the Abbey, you will be wowed by the stunning Gothic architecture, bright white against the green backdrop. You will be welcomed in by your very own butler, Stephen or Sue, as they show you through to the grand dining and quaint living room, complete with a revived white marble fireplace. Did you know we have a power stone in the living area? The stone is an ancient marker, indicating the point at which two strong ley lines meet which some believed created a strong spiritual force – you may find yourself feeling a wave of strength, resilience or calm when standing near!

Rising up the grand staircase, you will find your room – either the Bhurtpore or Salamanca bedroom. The Salamanca is a space that epitomises true luxury. Decorated in tranquil shades of pale blue and silver, the Salamanca offers king size accommodation with plenty of room to spare. Looking out on to the square garden and mere, the Salamanca is tastefully decorated with antiques and features a spectacular ensuite bathroom with a marble clad bath.

If the Bhurtpore is your room of choice, you will be surrounded by charm with traditional wood panelling giving a real sense of history. A super king size bed awaits (honestly, we could stay in bed all day in the Bhurtpore!), an ensuite bathroom offers stunning mere views, and a fireplace completes the room. With either bedroom, you will also have access to the Tudor study – a cosy and peaceful room ideal for curling up with a good book.

Worn out after your woodland walk through the estate, or even more adventurous with skydiving, clay pigeon shooting or a hot air balloon ride? There are few things more rejuvenating than a delicious nibble and bottle of your favourite tipple! With the Wellington package, we offer a bespoke selection of your favourites ready and waiting for you to enjoy. And the delicacies don’t end there, in the morning you will be greeted by a locally sourced breakfast, brimming with fresh seasonal flavours.

The North Wing is the ideal location for retreating to the peace and quiet of the countryside with your loved one. Forget cramped, busy, noisy hotels – instead relax and unwind in your very own country house and explore the local area – we would heartily recommend a visit to the fantastic Combermere Arms gastropub.

If you’re on the fence about booking your getaway, we might just have the the finishing touch: all bookings placed before the end of March will receive a complimentary bottle of Champagne, ready and waiting on ice for your arrival. Ready to book yet?
