Lemore Manor, Eardisley, Herefordshire, HR3 6LR
Lemore Manor is a very romantic house; light-filled and gracious. There are 15 bedrooms within the main house (12 of which are en-suite – there are a further 2 bathrooms), then the sweetest shepherd’s huts. Each is en-suite, and with a wood-burning stove, and they add an extra 4 beds, providing room for up to 38 guests to stay at Lemore.
The house has been designed to make the perfect party house, and is especially suited to smart country weddings and corporate do’s.
Within the house itself, there is a drawing room, dining room, study, as well as the serene Garden Room and the country kitchen. There is also a lift to access the first and second floors.
There’s a games room (with pool table and bar) in the cellar, and a magnificent orangery, which seats up to 150 guests for a banquet or wedding breakfast.
Connected to the main house is the Coach House, which has been designed as a great open and flexible space, perfect for a wedding ceremony, or lecture (like the Orangery, it seats up to 150).
The gardens at Lemore are very gorgeous, lots of sweeping lawn and topiary.
Thoughtfully-placed benches abound, with views of the Herefordshire countryside. Within a spinney, there’s a delightful little cabin called ‘The Hen House’, where brides can get ready for their day in peace. It has a hot tub and a zillion mirrors, to avoid any warring bridesmaids.
The white-painted band-stand is licensed for a wedding ceremony, just off the main terrace.
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“The most striking thing about Lemore Manor is its attention to detail – the need of every guest has been carefully considered and provided for. This is evident in all aspects of the house, from the beautifully-appointed bedrooms, to the food provided by the on-site chefs.”
