Lambside House
Retreat Menu +

A large, spacious house – ideal accommodation for a group, family celebration, a friends’ weekend away or even a hen party.

Dating back to the Georgian period, this spectacular property was previously owned by Edward Baring, a prestigious banker of his time. Each element of the house has been thoughtfully refurbished to stay to true to its historical origins and the décor and furnishings reflect the opulence of the house while encapsulating its friendly atmosphere.

Sitting proudly on the edge of a large farmyard, and encircled by disused stone barns and blissful pastures, this grand establishment is the largest in the Carswell collection.

As you unlock the doors and step through the grand columns of the entrance, you are welcomed by an impressive hall which boasts a traditional flagstone floor with two living rooms on either side. The space is ideal for entertaining and there’s the option of opening the doors to create a stylish open-plan area.

The all-encompassing kitchen/dining room provides the ideal platform for a social gathering. The kitchen is equipped for every possible requirement; even boasting a top-of-the-range bread maker and an Aga – the epitome of country cooking! There is also an electric oven and hob, so you are fully prepared to whip up a feast.

On the ground floor there is a sun-soaked playroom, complete with a daybed, with a pull-out bed beneath. This room is full of games and toys including table football, as well as a piano. Downstairs there is a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer, sink and toilet.

On the upper floor there are five deluxe bedrooms, which include: a grand king-sized room boasting a spacious en suite bathroom with his and hers sinks; an additional king-sized room; a twin room, an en suite twin room (which has the option to be a super king bed if requested) and an additional room with a single bed and full size bunk beds. Guests have the option for a folding Z bed into one of the rooms if required. There is also a family bathroom with a bath and shower over. The house sleeps a total of 11 and, but with additional daybeds and pull outs, will sleep 14 comfortably.

At the front of the house is a spacious front lawn, complete with stylish garden furniture and a wooden Wendy House, which is just minutes from the coastal path, leading to the cove. There is a small paddock – perfect for summer afternoons spent picnicking and ball games. Behind the house is an outside toilet, log shed, bin store and a modest herb garden.

As well as central heating, there is a log-burner to get extra toasty in them chillier evenings. All the bed linen is of superior quality (100% cotton); fluffy towels, tea-towels, bath mats and environmentally friendly cleaning materials are also provided. All guests will have local organic milk in the fridge ready for your arrival, along with eco-friendly toilet rolls, Fair Trade tea, coffee, sugar and locally-produced organic herbal tea to help you get settled into full holiday mode.
