Historic architecture and expansive living spaces all set within magnificent gardens tease and tantalise the imagination here at this opulent large manor house in Wiltshire. Built in the 1300s, Scudamore was owned by the war office until the eighties where it was sold and restored into this stunning Grade II listed family home. Whether enjoying the ornate grounds in the summer sunshine or sitting in front of a roaring log fire in wintertime, this luxurious self-catering home in Wiltshire will prove a favourite for all the family.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
On the first floor of the East Wing a sumptuous double bedroom and a lofty vaulted twin bedroom share a family bathroom. Two double en-suite bedrooms occupy the first floor of the West Wing, whilst a double and a twin bedroom share a bathroom on the second floor. All rooms are bedecked in fine linens and luxurious furnishings and provide a peaceful place to lay one's head for a blissful night's slumber. There is one stand alone shower and two hand-held showers at Scudamore.
The manor house overlooks the rolling countryside of Wiltshire, where the verdant landscape is littered with more mysterious stone circles, ancient barrows and processional avenues than anywhere else in Britain. This corner of the Cotswolds is certainly a place crying out to be explored. The formal un-fenced gardens at Scudamore include classical lawn terraces with clipped hedging, wild flower copses, a Provence-style courtyard and summer house with all-season appeal. Wander beneath rose-covered archways, follow the pathway alongside lavender borders or just relax by the pond, blissful...
Relax in the light-filled conservatory with a good book or enjoy a glass of wine in the drawing room. There's a games room to entertain all when the weather is inclement, or make full use of the well-equipped kitchen and create a feast befitting the grand dining room. The energetic among you will enjoy building up an appetite in the mini gym. Brokers Wood is not far away and is great for family walks before enjoying a picnic beside the lake - little ones will adore the adventure forest playground and little train.
There is parking for up to four cars. A well-equipped utility room can be found on the ground floor. Please note the property is situated just a short distance from the main road and is along a small village road; perfect for a short walk to the village pub for a hearty dinner and to sample the local ales. We kindly request that dogs are kept to the stone floor areas of the house and are not permitted on the carpets or furniture.
