The current house was built in 1868, for the eighteen-year-old bride of Charles Troyte, Katherine. Evidently Katherine’s parents took one look at the earlier (and possibly a little shabby) Tudor manor, and requested something more grand be built for their daughter. Which is exactly what they got – Victorian Gothic by Benjamin Ferrey, who was highly fashionable (and later one of the founder members of the British Institute of Architects).
The house is generous, and sleeps up to 80, in 34 bedrooms (3 of which are in a separate cottage in the courtyard – very useful for children, staff, or those wishing for a little peace). Most of the rooms are ensuite.
Downstairs, the reception rooms include the Great Hall (perfect for dancing), drawing room, Library, dining room and a snug. The rooms are very flexible; 120 diners can be seated in the dining room and drawing room, and still see the top table.
The house sits in 5.5 acres of gardens and parkland, and is surrounded by the 5000 acre Huntsham Estate. There is a croquet lawn in the garden, and lots of secret benches, and places to hide, should you wish. There’s a huge amount to do on the estate – like fencing, archery, pistol-shooting, clay shooting… then wine tasting or dancing lessons in the evening. There are also lots of classes you could take – everything from flower arranging, to baking, to magic lessons.
Should you ever wish to leave the house and grounds (it would be a wrench), then there’s kayaking, riding, fishing, paintballing… everything you can think of that you might like to do so near to Exmoor and Somerset. Your hosts are experts at arranging unusual pursuits, so do contact them for their suggestions.
Suits informal family parties, retreats, reunions with friends, family holidays, civil partnerships, weddings, special celebrations and parties of walkers or sports enthusiasts.
