BLAKEDOWN HALL

West Midlands Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful stately country house in picturesque Worcestershire with swimming pool

Overview:

Blakedown Hall is a beautiful stately country house set in an estate of around 132 acres in picturesque north Worcestershire countryside. The Hall itself, built in 1710 is a Grade II listed Queen Anne residence of great character and charm, with later additions in keeping with the style of that period. It is yours to enjoy if you are planning a party or luxury short break for a large group. Whether you have in mind a family gathering or reunion, a murder mystery setting of character or perhaps a special wedding venue, this is the perfect party venue. We are also hosts to corporate meetings, conferences and presentations.

The luxuriously appointed Hall, complete with indoor swimming pool is a fabulous residential venue providing exclusive use in the main house for up to 43 guests. For larger groups we are able to accommodate more people by using cottages on the estate and other accommodation near by.

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

At Simply Chateau we only work with the very best rental properties on the market. All of our properties have been handpicked and we take our customer feedback extremely seriously. We operate a ‘three strikes and you’re out’ policy - that is to say if we have 3 negative reviews relating to any of our properties we cease to advertise it.

We have properties to suit every taste and budget, all chosen with care by our expert team for their unique character, fantastic features and stunning countryside locations.

Free Concierge Service:

As luxury rental specialists we have all the experience in the world helping each and every one of our customers find the most suitable property for their dream holiday. All you need to do is provide us with the details of what you imagine your dream holiday to be, and we'll find the perfect property for you. We can make sure that every arrangement is planned to perfection and each element of your holiday has been refined. Transfers, catering, maid service, tours and activities can all be prearranged to your specific requirements.

100% Financial Guarantee:

We realize that financial protection is an important consideration when choosing a holiday company so to ensure you have complete peace of mind we are bonded members of ABTA.

Lowest Price Guarantee:

Simply Chateau ‘simply??? processes the bookings and credit card payments on the property owner’s behalf. The owners themselves set the rates so you know you are getting the best available rental rate when you book.
