It stands on the edge of the village of Colwall, between Ledbury and Malvern. Easy to get to by road - the motorway network is just 3 miles away - or train - there is a station in the village with a driect line to London, it is secluded without being isolated.
The house has its origins in Elizabethan times but the medieval section at the rear has been obscured by the Georgian elevation at the front. Built in 1780 by Henry Lambert to woo the local heiress, it is something of a statement with its lovely proportions and lavish period features.
HOW MANY DOES IT SLEEP?
There are 10 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and three cloakrooms sleeping a total of 24 currently. From later September 2016, this number will rise to 30
The sitting room is stunning: spacious, gradn but not overwhelming, it has floor to ceiling windows looking south over the front garden. There is plenty of space for the whole company to sit together.
The story goes that Henry Lambert poached some of Robert Adam's master plasterers to ceate the ornate ceiling as a gift for his future wife. 250 years later it is still as glorious as the day they finished work.
Dominated by carved oak bookcases, this room smacks of times past. Easy to imagine Cluedo being enacted here.
THE DINING ROOM
Grand but not stuffy, the dining room is decorated in a fabulous purple, courtesy of Benjamin Moore and seats 24.
