Vine House
Fabulous self-contained wing sleeping 6 + baby

Version francaise


After many visits to the Loire, we have found the 'Ritz', warm and comfortable and for once we haven't missed our own bed!
Mr and Mrs W, South Wales
What a delightful place for a break. The beds are wonderful, the food out of this world and the hospitality second to none.
Mr and Mrs N, East Sussex



Vine House is a wing of the Manor which we believe was originally the kitchens and coach house, now restored and converted into a supremely comfortable, self contained holiday home for six people. The name Vine House comes from the wonderful dessert grapevine framing the front of the property.

Private parking is provided on the forecourt and you can, of course, drive right to the front door for unloading when you arrive.

If you need to check your emails, Vine House offers complimentary Wi-Fi.

The ground floor with its original terracotta floor-tiles and beamed ceiling, divides naturally into a cosy sitting area and a country style kitchen and dining area.

The sitting area is dominated by the original monumental stone fireplace with a fabulous Stovax wood-burning stove.

Grouped around the fireplace are generous comfy sofas with squishy cushions, in soft taupe and blue, perfect for relaxing.


Curl up with a drink, take your pick from the selection of games, books and magazines. If you fancy a spot of music, there is a selection of cds for the cd player or simply plug your iPod into the docking station on the dresser. The flat screen tv is tuned for all the English freeview stations and there is also a dvd player and selection of dvds.

A door leads from here directly onto the terrace which faces the pool (fully alarmed in accordance with the French Pool Safety Regulations) and has outdoor dining and lounging furniture and a Weber kettle barbeque.


At the other end of the room is the fully equipped kitchen area with cooker (3 gas rings and 1 electric hotplate plus a fan-assisted oven), microwave, fridge with freezing compartment and Smeg dishwasher. A butcher's block provides additional workspace and there is plenty of crockery, glasses etc. All items of kitchen equipment including the knives (sharpened regularly) have been chosen by the cook, for quality not economy.

The huge windows front and back flood the area with light and the large dining table comfortably seats six with ample space for a high chair.

For those evenings when you might enjoy being catered for, the baby/child monitor provided works between Vine House and the Manor Dining Room allowing you to relax over dinner..

For convenience, there is a large ground floor shower room with walk-in shower, w.c. and wash basin .

Discreetly tucked at the far end of the room is the utility area with washing machine, clothes airer, iron and ironing board, hoover etc. (A rotary washing line is at your disposal located behind the old stables).


Upstairs The staircase (stairgate available) leads up into the spacious pretty beamed attic where you will find three double bedrooms and a bath/shower room. A pine trunk provides the perfect home for my favourite tea-pot!!

All the rooms upstairs have wonderful exposed beams and the landing and bedrooms have natural floor covering whilst the bathroom has a tiled floor.


All three rooms are furnished in country style with built in wardrobes and a chest of drawers so you can unpack properly, a dressing table and chair, bedside tables with reading lamps and top quality,
wonderfully comfortable beds dressed with Egyptian cotton bedlinen and both firm and soft pillows.
Plus a towel stand for personal towels, and generously sized towelling bathrobes. 


The Primrose Room Off to the left at the top of the stairs, this is the largest bedroom offering either twin beds or a superking.

Painted in an uplifting shade of primrose yellow with white painted furniture and primrose and blue soft furnishings, the window looks out over the front courtyard.

There is ample room for a cot (supplied on request).

The Rose Room At the far end of the landing, to one side of the bathroom, this room again offers either twin beds or a superking.

Here we have pale green walls with white painted furniture, gingham covered headboards and rose sprigged fabrics. The half height window with a balustrade has views over the lane and the fields.





The Peony Room To the right at the top of the stairs, next to the bathroom, this room has a king size bed.

One wall is painted in a gentle shade of mauvey grey and is offset by cream painted furniture, a  gingham covered headboard and soft furnishings featuring cream peonies.




The Blue Bathroom Between Rose and Peony is the spacious bathroom with wc, basin, bath and overhead shower.

The walls are painted in a soft blue and a pretty fabric in shades of taupe, blue, pink and white has been used for the curtain, cloth and laundry bag.

There is a pine chest for storage, Provencal liquid hand soap and shower gel and a hairdryer.

A baby bath and toddler step are available on request.
