Tone Dale House is a wonderful property for a large group of family or friends – it’s been a family home for 200 years and that’s how it feels. A great space for relaxed fun, entertaining, dining and partying.
The large rooms downstairs lend themselves to big groups enjoying time together. There are 2 dining rooms, the largest of which will seat all your group comfortably, so you can enjoy long, sumptuous dinner parties. The other, with it’s original William Morris wallpaper, is great for a leisurely breakfast, adjacent to the kitchen.
The party room is ideal for some after dinner dancing, with integrated lighting and speakers – it’s soundproofed, so you can dance till dawn! It’s also got a widescreen TV for those big matches you don’t want to miss – or a movie afternoon perhaps?
The large games room often becomes a focal point for games of table tennis or pool and there’s a casino table too if you want to raise the stakes. Next door is the drawing room with open fire, comfy sofas and views over the garden, where in summer the croquet will be set out on the lawn. Beside the house is the hot tub, which is wonderful for relaxing in any time of day or night.
The bedrooms are all individually decorated, many reflecting the history of the house and family – Quaker mill owners, bankers, mountaineers and rugby players. Many of the beds are zip and link, giving you maximum flexibility, depending on the make-up of your group. There are 10 bedrooms in the main house (one is a triple) which sleeps 21 and an additional 5 bedrooms in the adjacent Stables, which sleeps 10. The Stables also has a kitchen and sitting area, although generally it’s just used for sleeping and all guests join the main house for activities and meals. The main house is fully set up with everything for the entire group.
The prices shown on Landed Houses are for the house and stables for 31 guests, but if you wish to hire just the main house for 21 please get in touch for a price. With us, it’s always exclusive hire, so if you only require the main house, we will never let the Stables to a separate group. We don’t think that’s so much fun!
We have contacts with fantastic local chefs who will prepare you a delicious celebration dinner. Alternatively, if you want a quick supper to pop in the oven when you arrive, we can arrange that too. If you have other entertainment or activities in mind and need a helping hand – let us know, we would be happy to help you have the best time possible while you are here.
