Fantastic property with lots of space, situated in the park of a mansion house at the end of a huge duckpool. The garden furniture allows al fresco meals - absolutely great.

The Orangery is a unique place to stay and somewhere very special, steeped in history. If you can arrange a trip around the nearby Frampton Court, it's well worth a visit to learn more about the 900 years of family history in the 2 buildings. 2 pubs, a local well stocked shop and lots of walks, makes this a great location. I'd happily revisit!
