A working Georgian farmhouse with glorious views
This elegant farmhouse dates back to 1720 and has been thoroughly and sympathetically restored by its current owners, providing superbly comfortable guest accommodation in what is still a working farm and family home. Open fireplaces, antique furnishings and original period features are brought together by beautiful wallpapers and decorations, providing a soothing and comfortable home from home.
There are just three guest bedrooms here, a super-king double and a twin/superking, both with ensuite baths and overhead showers, and a standard double with a large en-suite walk-in shower. Each is beautifully decorated, with large sash windows giving glorious views of the farmland and estate. Luxury cotton sheets and goose down duvets are standard, and each room has a range of different teas and ground coffees, a TV, USB charger, and wifi – though wifie is strongest in the dining room.
Breakfast is a serious affair at Brills Farm, and is served either in the family dining room or under the old oak tree if the weather is kind. Home produced bacon, eggs from Brills Farm chickens, field mushrooms and fresh tomatoes are all set off with mounds of AGA cooked toast. Special dietary requirements can all be catered for (with notice), alongside fresh fruit salads, yogurts and a variety of cereals and granolas. Each week features special items on the menu, such as smoked salmon, pain au chocolat or Scotch pancakes.
