Baldon House is the centre portion of a beautiful 18th Century Manor house

Baldon House is the centre portion of a beautiful 18th Century Manor house set on the edge of the popular village of Marsh Baldon, six miles south of the historic university city of Oxford. The house is full of character and provides a wonderful holiday for the whole family. Surrounded by beautiful countryside full of walks and cosy pubs, it is the perfect getaway for peace and quiet. The seven bedroom house, blending both grandeur and charm, has many period features such as high ceilings, marble fireplaces and parquet floors.

The bedrooms include: a luxurious Georgian master suite enjoying views across the countryside, with a super-King bed, large dressing room, stunning new bathroom with role top bath; a beautiful twin Georgian bedroom enjoying the same spectacular view with en-suite bathroom and walk in closet; a twin/super King en-suite bedroom with walk-in closet, enjoying views over the front courtyard, and church spire; a further two double bedrooms and two single bedrooms; three further bathrooms and a cloak room.

On the ground floor is a large, open-plan kitchen with breakfast room (stocked with everything you need including a nespresso machine for the perfect cappuccino), a well-appointed Georgian living room, and a beautiful historic panelled dining room seating 16.

Year-round, the house offers a wonderful combination of activities and relaxation. Eat al fresco on the South Lawn in the summer sun, enjoy eggs from the chickens and our own Baldon House pork and lamb. Have a go at croquet, treat the children to a pony ride or our very own on property Farm School, unwind by hitting golf balls on the lawn, or schedule a afternoon of clay pigeon shooting. In the autumn, warm yourself by the Aga after a brisk walk through the woods. Curl up with a good book by the fire in the winter and in the spring, watch the lambs in the fields or try your hand at shearing! Whatever your age or energy level, there is something for everyone.

About Kymberly Wolfson

This is our family home where my siblings and I grew up. My parents now spend most of their time in the US which is why we decided to start renting. I live in a cottage on the estate with my family and will be on hand to answer any questions during your stay. We hope you and your family have a wonderful time and enjoy the house as much as we have done!

Kymberly Wolfson purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1977

The house is awesome - well equipped and perfect for groups/ family visits. Lots of space lots of cooking and socilaising. The grounds are amazing - from a lake to wooded walks to horses and sheep to ball games on the lawn. We used the house to get ready in pre-wedding, with soo much room to get ready in (the master suite is VERY impressive). The estate offered amazing photo opportunities in and around the house barns and gardens.

                                                                  English Country Manor

                                                                  We were there for 10 days in July 2017. We are grandparents and 6 preteen/ teenage grandchildren. We arranged 3 days of driven touring, 2 trips to London by train and the rest exploring in our rented vehicle. Each day it felt like we were coming back to home when we got to the Manor. The accomodations were great and the outside area allowed all the excess energy to be dissipated. The Seven Stars Pub was a nightly enjoyment 5 minutes away. The staff were fantastic and the owners were very gracious. We totally enjoyed our stay and would recommend this site to other travellers.

                                                                  Very homely for such a large country house

                                                                  Colin P.Alton Hampshire

                                                                  Baldon House is set in 60 acres of private beautiful, unspoiled grounds. There are 20 acres of woodland full of wildlife, a series of lakes with great carp fishing and a medieval bridge marking the ancient road from London to Oxford. There are several fields put to pasture where Aberdeen Angus cattle graze alongside polo ponies. Nearer to the house there is an historic stable yard, medieval tower, several barns and a working walled kitchen garden still overseen by our gardeners, Marsh Baldon is a picturesque country village with a pub, school, church and even cricket on the village green! There are countless walks to nearby villages and destination pubs, such as the fantastic Seven Stars pub, renowned gastro pub The Mole Inn in Toot Baldon, The Crazy Bear in Stadhampton and Raymond Blanc's Michelin Stared Manoir aux Quatre Saisons in nearby Greta Milton. The Oxford University Arboretum also neighbours the Baldon Estate.
