Victorian Country Retreat

Victorian Country Retreat

Hatfield Broad Oak, Bishop´s Stortford, Essex, UK

Coming soon...

Covered in clambering roses, this 15th century country home was made with large gatherings and good times in mind. In warmer months, congregate by the outdoor swimming pool with fresh cocktails mixed in the pool house; in winter, light the fires and spend sunny mornings in the orangery, ponds glistening with frost outside. A luxury home within touching distance of central London, where the art of idleness is celebrated with fervour.

Victorian in stature, but with gentle tones inside, this luxury self-catering home close to the Hertfordshire border in rural Essex is a leisurely retreat not far from London, coaxing all who enter into a state of calm. At the height of summer, climb to the top of the house’s very own tor to watch the sun sink into the horizon while deer and alpacas roam the fields below, bottle of Champagne in tow, of course. When the moon rises, bare all to the night sky and slide into the outdoor swimming pool, floating between the shimmering reflections of the constellations.

After a day of exploring the chocolate box villages which dot the Essex countryside, along with sampling the fare of the local gastro pubs residing in them, retreat to your choice of luxurious bath tub (claw foot, or beneath the wonky, original timber beams in the eaves of the house - this stately home has them all!) before coming together in the large country kitchen to prepare a feast of fit for the Queen herself. Accommodating up to 14 guests plus two dogs, your fast family exit from the city has never been easier.
