The detail

Get a taste of living as Lord or Lady of the Manor at this breathtaking, red brick Jacobean property which sleeps up to 26 people. Whether you are planning a family get together, a celebration, or need a location for corporate entertaining or team building, Abbey House will provide the perfect space to cater for all your needs. With multiple communal areas and nine bedrooms, all immaculately and elegantly furnished with period features, this stunning accommodation with its own swimming pool will deliver the ultimate in luxury living.

There are plenty of areas where you can relax and socialise depending on your mood. The drawing room with its open fireplace is a sumptuously comfortable place to relax in front of a roaring fire with a brandy, and the library with cosy log burner provides a peaceful retreat to escape for a quiet read in traditional leather armchairs. The games room with its poker tables offers the chance to have a friendly flutter or just a bit of competitive fun, while the TV room is the perfect spot to enjoy a film night. Alternatively, you will find a secluded den on the top floor complete with PlayStation for the younger guests or the young at heart.

The grand dining room, which comfortably seats 22, features an open fireplace and gives views across the private garden. All that is missing is a butler to make you feel like you’re dining like royalty. The modern, fully equipped kitchen with adjoining utility kitchen is the ideal place to prepare a group feast, or why not hire in a private chef for the ultimate in luxury dining experiences?

You will find nine bedrooms, four of which are ensuite, plus two extra bathrooms and an additional downstairs loo. There are also additional guest beds in some bedrooms, accommodating 26 guests in total. Each room is beautifully and individually designed with the elegance you would expect from a property of this calibre and feature sumptuous bedding, fluffy towels and views across the lovely grounds.

Outside, there are extensive, beautifully landscaped gardens to explore and a swimming pool which is heated from April to October. Along with the many external seating areas there is a pool house with bar area and BBQ for alfresco dining by the pool. For those days of inclement weather, there is a covered winter garden with a table tennis table, so that everyone can enjoy the stunning outlook whatever the time of year.

Audley End House and gardens are on your doorstep and well worth exploring. The estate also features a miniature railway and Shetland ponies to keep everyone entertained whatever their age! Walkers and cyclists can enjoy the wide variety of footpaths and trails in the area and the quaint medieval town of Saffron Walden is nearby. There are countless fantastic pubs and restaurants within a short walk or drive and London and Cambridge are both within easy reach. Abbey House truly offers an ideal combination of authentic charm with modern features for an unforgettable stay.
