Available from the 21st – 28th December 2016 and 29th December 2016 – 4th January 2017, Faringdon House in Oxfordshire, England comes fully staffed and catered. There is room for up to 14 guests in 8 luxurious double bedrooms plus ample accommodation for staff and domestic offices.
Faringdon House is quite possibly one of the prettiest houses in England. Built in 1785 it replaces an earlier Elizabethan house that had been badly damaged by fire. There are fabulous gardens and parkland surrounding the house, secluding it from the nearby thriving and historic market town of Faringdon. On both sides of the house there are wonderful panoramic views. Looking north and west with spectacular views across the park and valley and then looking south over fine lawns towards Faringdon Church.
There is even a chapel in the house as well as an orangery, walled garden, orchard and lake with boathouse in the grounds. Also there is extensive stabling for horses should you wish to bring any, along with glorious rides from the house. However, the magnificent outdoor swimming pool might be a little chilly for this time of year!
Faringdon House was described by historian Mark Girouard as being ‘as desirable a house as one could wish for’. The house is steeped in 20th century history of both a social and artistic nature. It is of a classic Georgian style with an impressive standard of accommodation. It is full of beautiful mouldings with some elegant plaster mouldings on the chimney breast above the fireplace in the dining room.
This house is only 1 hour by train from London (Paddington Station) and is a simply wonderful place to spend Christmas or New Year and celebrate the festive period. For day trips, it is only 20 miles from Cirencester and 21 miles from the city of Oxford.
