Hummingbird House Overview

Nestled in the heart of a tranquil farmyard, Hummingbird House stands as a testament to historic grandeur and timeless luxury. Once the proud domain of Edward Baring, the luminary of banking nobility, this Georgian 'gentleman's residence' has been masterfully restored to retain its opulence, all while exuding an undeniable warmth and inviting ambience.

Spanning expansive spaces, the house breathes elegance in every nook and cranny. Its living areas are a harmonious blend of grandeur and comfort, seamlessly catering to any gathering, be it an intimate family reunion, a jubilant hen party, or an exquisite small-scale wedding reception.

Wander outside and you're greeted by the lush embrace of meticulously manicured gardens. Here, a state-of-the-art wood-fired hot tub awaits, promising relaxation and rejuvenation. As the sun begins its descent, picture yourself with a drink in hand, absorbing the beauty that surrounds you. Ensconced within a historic farmyard, Hummingbird House is cushioned by ancient stone barns and serene pastures, offering an escape from the bustling outside world.

Step through its stately entrance columns, and you're ushered into a spacious hall, where flagstone floors set the stage for two resplendent living rooms. These rooms can be merged, thanks to sweeping double doors, forging an impressive backdrop for any festivity.

The heart of the house is undoubtedly its brand new kitchen and dining space, a gourmet's dream. Outfitted with cutting-edge amenities including a Quooker tap, twin ovens, a 5-ring induction hob, and a classic Aga, every culinary desire can be fulfilled here. The ground floor playroom is a sunlit haven for the young and young-at-heart, bursting with toys, table football, and even a piano. Convenience is also ensured with a utility room, home to essential laundry equipment.

Ascend the staircase to discover five plush bedrooms, from a palatial king suite with a lavish ensuite bathroom to versatile rooms that can be tailored to your needs. Venture outdoors to experience the sprawling lawn, complete with a fire pit and elegant garden furnishings. Just a heartbeat away, the coastal path beckons for those with wanderlust.

For the sportingly inclined, a game of tennis awaits at the nearby court, a delightful addition to your summer sojourn. (Please ensure to bring your own equipment and pre-book your slot. Note: Dogs are not permitted in the tennis area.)

Luxury is interwoven into every aspect of Hummingbird House. Enjoy the comforting warmth of a wood burner and central heating. Stay connected with complimentary superfast fibre broadband. Indulge in the softness of hotel-quality bed linen and plush towels. And as a nod to our commitment to sustainability, find eco-friendly cleaning supplies, along with a delightful selection of Fair Trade teas, coffee, and local organic milk.

Come, immerse yourself in an abode where history mingles with luxury, where every moment is a memory waiting to be crafted.
