THE COACH HOUSE

Lower Keyford Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Short breaks all year round

This impressive Grade I listed Elizabethan manor house stands proudly amidst its own private, beautifully landscaped gardens, and is set within a Local Preservation Area. Erected in 1607 it has become the last remaining intact manor in Frome and hides behind tall Elizabethan walls with entry via automatic gates down a sweeping gravel driveway flanked by huge 600-year-old beech trees. It is situated on the south side of the ancient market town of Frome in a small valley of one of the most picturesque and historic areas. Described as one of the finest examples of a 16th-century stone built manor, it boasts virtually all original characteristics: stone gabled roofs, mullioned and leaded light windows, historic fireplaces, decorative plaster ceiling moldings, oak stripped floors and paneling, some dating back to the 15th-century, and huge oak beams removed from even older sailing ships. Accommodation is arranged over three floors.

Details for The Coach House 4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 1 Bathroom, 1 Half Bathrooms

Set within the beautiful grounds of Stonnwall Manor Estate, completely secluded behind tall hedges and stonewalls, some dating back to the 17th century. Accessed from a back lane with its own private entrance via automatic gates, a gravel driveway sweeps round to the stable yard. The property consists of a barn attached to the main house. The barn features stone walls draped with tapestries, whilst the other side is timber-clad, its barn doors replaced with a long line of French doors. This allows this huge room to be extended onto a sun terrace revealing an ancient well. Polished flagstone floors, chandeliers hanging from old roof trusses and oil paintings add a lovely warm resonance.

Map

Car: not necessary

Take a pleasant stroll along one of the many pathways with plenty of resting benches, giant stone ornaments and plants to admire en-route; east to the croquet lawn, south towards the old stables or maybe west uphill past the fish pond. A visit to the manor's own underground bomb shelter is a must - themed as a 1940s living room. Other pleasant walks lead from the manor past many delightful cottages to the town centre. Ideally set in Frome, which boasts the most listed buildings in Somerset, there are many unspoilt villages nearby like Stonehenge. Also within easy reach are Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury, Bath and Stourhead Gardens. Longleat Estate with `hands-on' safari and boat trips is a whole day's outing.
