Set among sweeping lawns and poplar trees, this 1940s lodge and self-contained cottage is a reminder of the days when travel involved leather suitcases, steam trains and ocean liners. The two-storey main house retains this bygone elegance with crisp white decor and French paned windows. Each of its five guest rooms has tea- and coffee-making facilities and a private bathroom. There is a sunken sitting room with an open fire and library, and a sunroom overlooking the gardens – a perfect hideaway to write that long letter home while the children play in the table tennis room or outdoor swimming pool.
