----- THE STABLES ------

A fabulously furnished ex stable block on a Herefordshire estate, with gardens, squash court, sauna, our large and exclusive house in Herefordshire is perfect for self catering luxury. Catering for groups of up to 23, it's great for a family celebration, a university re-union or a big birthday. It also provides a contemporary location for corporate retreats, board meetings, management courses or executive training.

Combining Victorian grandeur with 21st century facilities in the secluded Herefordshire countryside, as well as being the perfect place for self-catering groups of family and friends, The house is also a unique setting for corporate retreats, board meetings, management courses or occasions where business and relaxation come together.

Bedrooms vary in size and shape but not in comfort. Bathrooms or wetrooms are more generously proportioned than many ordinary bedrooms; king size pocket sprung beds and Egyptian cotton linen are the rule. Three of the bedrooms have mezzanine galleries, two have their own kitchen (and the two other pairs share one each). So there’s no need to pad downstairs if you fancy an impromptu midnight feast.

The old potting shed now houses shower, sauna, hot tub and in a separate room the ping pong table. The squash court is fully equipped with rackets and indoor shoes. In the one hectare walled garden we have a heated swimming pool (open May to September); a badminton net; and a beautifully laid out garden - plenty of room for football, or hide and seek. Beyond the private garden there are 700 acres of fields, orchards and woodland for you to wander in; and beyond that there is the 8000 square miles of Wales, Herefordshire, Shropshire and the Welsh Borders to explore.

With a series of meeting rooms that can meet any group's requirements, state of the art technology and full catering available, our facilities are optimum for a private and exclusive residential meeting venue. I designed the layout and property myself, I think with imagination and flair using the space in these historic Victorian stable buildings to its best advantage, creating an environment that suits both private parties or any corporation. The steeply pitched, ventilated roofs are supported by space-saving iron pillars; rounded corners save the axles of understeered carriages; there are porcelain tiled corridors, polished brick and cobble floors and gently sloping entrances which reveal the properties origins as the Victorian stable block and carriage house of the Whittern Estate. The house has large and small presentation rooms, break-out spaces and suites, all punctuated by interesting entrances, courtyards, gardens and terraces. It has its own one hectare walled garden (c1810) with outdoor heated pool (2005). And if your presentation runs over time, the stable clock’s bell will remind you.

This peaceful area of our beautiful county is the perfect solution for a corporate getaway. You can use the house as your own private hotel during your stay but enjoy facilities that high quality hotels would covet for themselves. There's also lots to do including golf, mountain biking, riding, canoeing, shooting and go-karting to mention just a few local pursuits.

The house attracts a variety of businesses looking for comfort, quality, style and a real sense of individuality. We also have the full range of technical kit for presentations and meetings. The great benefit of coming to our house is that you are totally free to structure your stay as you wish; and the exclusivity of being here alone means that there are no rules of engagement. If you want dinner at 6pm or 10pm, or Brunch rather than lunch, or beers for breakfast – it’s your choice.

Leisure facilities:

Squash Court, Badminton, table tennis, Wii and Xbox 360 (for the more sedentary)

Outdoor heated swimming pool (May - September) with sun-loungers

Hot tub and sauna

One hectare landscaped walled garden with outdoor seating for up to 23

Guestbook comments from the manager

A Yearly get-together for The Belvoir Travel Club from Fareham: "Phil's 52nd birthday. Everything was superb. The website doesn't do The Stables justice. If you find some people left behind in Rosemary's Garden and the Discourse, please return them to us. We have been going away as a group of friends for 10 years and this has been voted the best ever. We would love to make a return visit."
