The Grange - Sleeps 15
On entering the traditional hallway your eyes are immediately drawn to light from the morning room which opens on the first door on the left. Decorated in powder blue the gentile room features a Steinway piano, left handed electric guitar, cornet and trumpet to practice with. Anyone listening can relax on the padded window seating which provides some of the best views out onto miles of Exmoor countryside.
You can then move onto the Victorian styled conservatory. With its widescreen TV and Wii games console it’s a favourite place for the children to relax, and with a large pine dining table it’s ideal for lunch and evening meals. With views onto the woodland and gardens it can also be the ideal spot to relax on the sofa and bask in the warmth of the summer sunshine.
Through the double doors is the kitchen. With views out onto the courtyard the traditional farmyard kitchen features a double fridge/freezer, dishwasher, gas oven, and plenty of work space to make a tasty meal. For drinks there is the Butler’s pantry, a charming bar area. With seating overlooking the courtyard it’s the perfect place for adults to while away the hours.
For more formal dinners outside of the kitchen you can pass into the exquisite dining room complete with open fire and antique furniture. With seating for 14, catering can also be provided on request with menus of sumptuous locally sourced, seasonal meals.
To relax after your meal there is a comfy period drawing room full of plush sofas and comfy chairs to relax in and simply watch the TV or alternatively watch the captivating moorland bobbing in and out of the cloud whilst warming yourself in front of the log fire.
Through the double doors of the drawing room lies the library; ideal for getting lost in a book or writing a letter. For rainy afternoons there is a small pool table and antique Bagatelle table, as well as a selection of traditional board games and a huge selection of good books.
For those wanting to catch up on day to day tasks there is also a comfortable furnished office with both wireless internet and fax machine as well as a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Passing up the grand carpeted staircase you reach the long hallway through which all the beautifully furnished rooms of the Grange lead off.
The first room is the Knight Room. Named after the Knight family who built the Grange in the 1840’s the luscious yellow room boasts a super king size bed with pelmet and an additional single bed. The king size bed can also easily be spilt into two to allow a room of three single beds. The room also comes with a large blue en-suite bathroom with bath, shower and WC.
Next door is the equally lavish Fortescue Room. With its own four-poster bed, comfy arm chairs and window seat providing spectacular views out onto the moor, it also has an en-suite bathroom with power shower, bath and WC.
Further up the corridor lies the Derby Haddon room, a cosy twin room overlooking the courtyard. Named after a great character that lived at the Grange in the 1960’s the room also has its own private bathroom and WC.
On the opposite side of the corridor is the Josh Brown room – named after the late Josh Brown who resided with his family at Emmett’s for 25 years up until the 1990s. The incredibly cosy twin or double room comes with its own sofa and views out onto the moor.
Towards the end of the corridor is the Bunk Room. This cosy room with views out onto the courtyard has a set of bunk beds making it ideal for children, or they can be split into a twin room if necessary. Both the bunk room and the Josh Brown room share a large bathroom with bath and WC decorated in a stylish blue beachside theme.
At the far end of the corridor lies The Nursery; a charming children’s “snug” with two twin beds and a bunk-bed, ideal for the children to escape to a room of their own and chill-out. It has an en-suite shower room with toilet and wash basin and a large flat-screen TV with games console and multi-channel free-view. There are two sofas for the kids to relax and play games.
Outside the front of the house sits a large croquet lawn with wooden tables and chairs. With unforgettable views out to the surrounding moorland estate, it’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon. A traditional vegetable garden and fully sized tennis court also sit to the side of the house and all feature exquisite uninterrupted views out onto the surrounding countryside. To the back of the house lies the courtyard where many of the chickens and guinea fowl spend their days. One of the old barns features a large table tennis table, snooker table and skittle alley making it an ideal escape for the children.
Further afield guests have sole use of the Estates some 900 acres and are free to walk and ride across the miles of unspoilt moorland. For more details about where to go and what to do have a look at our activities section
