STUNNING GRAND COUNTRY HOUSE NEAR DOWNTON ABBEY

West Berkshire & Newbury Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

A 10,000 Sq. Ft. Grand Country House Set In 20 Acres Of Grounds

Little Park House has a rich history, and amongst others, was formerly the home of Lady Diana Spencer's aunt and, for a time, the King of Norway. It was completely renovated and modernised in 2002 and is now a spectacular family home, available for rental at certain times during the year.

The house benefits from a large heated private pool, with a shallow end perfect for children. The large terraced lawns are great for family games and with plenty of walks in the surrounding countryside it is a stunning location for a family gathering or celebratory weekend. The Grand Hall, at the heart of the house, is ideal for celebrations, comfortably seating up to 50 guests and caterers can be recommended.

Fully renovated and interior designed, the décor is both classical and elegant, with sumptuous curtains, soft furnishings and floors of antique oak, limestone or carpet. The heart of the house is the fully galleried Grand Hall, with huge glass skylight, off which all principal reception rooms and bedrooms are accessed.

The huge Clive Christian family kitchen overlooks the pool and is fully equipped with 2 oven aga plus 2 oven electric module, Miele microwave/combination oven and built in coffee maker plus twin fridges, freezer etc.

The bedrooms compliment the style of the house and many are very large, most with en-suite bathrooms. There are 7 bedrooms upstairs, with the possibility of a double bed being placed in one of the downstairs rooms to make another bedroom. There are also two sofa beds and 2 Z beds that can be used for larger parties.

An interconnecting flat located off the games room which can sleep up to an additional 5 guest may also be available at an additional cost.

Just email us to discuss your party and how best they can be accommodated.

A full in house brochure will be supplied with the booking information of all the surrounding areas and attractions to help make the most of your stay.

The recently installed HD cinema room includes Blu-ray, Sky+ and xBox gaming on a grand scale. A multi room/pool music system completes the entertainment.

Parking for up to 50 cars is easily accommodated.

Little Park House is the family home of Cassilda and David (and their children Rosie and Sam).

Cassilda purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

When we bought Little Park House it was in a very sad state in need of complete renovation to bring it back to its former glory as a grand English country house. Over a period of 2 years, with the help of up to 40 tradesmen at a time, we renewed, restored and poured all our time and passion into recreating the grandeur of this 19th century gem whilst installing all modern technologies and comforts. We love our home and are sure you will as well.

A rural retreat set amidst gently rolling hills, and yet within easy reach of some of the South of England's most important attractions, Little Park House is the perfect, convenient idyll. The tiny village of Brimpton, with its pubs, church and railway station nearby, sits seemingly unaware and certainly unaffected by the vibrant towns and historic cities nearby. Equidistant from Royal Windsor, Bath and Oxford, Little Park House is ideally placed to explore these world famous cities. Newbury Racecourse and Highclere Castle, the setting for Downton Abbey, are both within 15 minutes drive. Chapel Row, the heart of Kate Middleton Country, is also a short 15 minute drive away.
