And with four reception rooms including the grand dining room, quiet library and calm drawing room, there are plenty of peaceful corners that you can find to unwind in.
The Yoga Space
Just a short stroll across the courtyard from the manor house lies the the Coach house. It has recently undergone a modern renovation using wood from the estate for its warm wooden floors and has surround sound systems in place, ideal for playing music to help you drift off into relaxation. Its high ceilings and full length doors opening out onto the garden, allow the yoga room to be filled with natural light making it a calm and tranquil environment; the perfect space for your yoga and relaxation practise.

With over 12 years worth of yoga teaching experience she brings together a vinyasa flow style class that is suitable for all levels and abilities. The classes are fun and informative yet deeply restorative and nurturing. There will be more dynamic yoga sessions in the morning with more calming, relaxation sessions in the evening. Meditation plays an integral part of each session.
