Toad Hall – Property Features
The Bedrooms (x6)
Toad Hall offers extensive accommodation in six beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms, each with its own colour scheme, as well as oak doors, floors and skirting.
The beds are all 6ft doubles or 3ft twins, with the flexibility to have either doubles or twins in any room to accommodate your group in the most comfortable layout. Two of the rooms have an additional bed to accommodate larger groups.
All bedrooms have a hairdryer and a TV equipped with Freeview. The TVs in the David and Alice bedrooms also have a built-in DVD player.
The rooms are named after tractors that were used on the estate when it used to be a farm.
On the first floor are four bedrooms with wonderfully airy high ceilings:
John: can be a 6ft double or twin bedroom and has an en-suite shower room.
Henry: can be a triple or a 6ft double and single and has an en-suite shower room plus a wonderful view of the Wenlock Edge from the window.
William: ideally a 6ft double, but can also be a twin bedroom, and has an en-suite shower room. It is a lovely light room featuring a long window with idyllic views out towards the local Norman church.
David: ideally a twin bedroom, but can alternatively be used as a 6ft double, with clever use of space, a view out towards the church and an en-suite shower room.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor:
Alice: can be a triple or a 6ft double and a single and has an en-suite bathroom. It has a brick and timber feature wall and a door opening out to the courtyard.
Muriel: ideally a 6ft double, but can also be a twin bedroom, and has an en-suite shower room.
The Bathrooms (x7)
With regard to bathrooms, this really is a property designed with convenience in mind! In addition to the six en-suite bathrooms (five with showers and one with a bath), Toad Hall has additional separate shower/toilet facilities on the ground floor.
The Reception Rooms
Toad Hall has an enormous dining/sitting room which, with traditional oak floors and over 55m2 (600 square feet) of space, is a magnificent room.
It is fantastic as a family room but can also be used for larger dinners (seating up to 28 by prior arrangement) or for meetings. The solid wood dining table, with leather dining chairs seating 14 people, looks out over the private, enclosed courtyard, which has a water feature and is beautifully lit in the evenings and shown off to great effect by the enormous French windows.
The sitting area is cosy and homely, with a leather sofa and a large flat screen TV, complete with Freeview and DVD player. We also provide a toy box for our youngest guests. From this area you can walk out to the patio and garden.
This room can be set up for dinner groups of up to 28 people. It is the perfect place for a special celebration dinner. Gather the whole family together for the evening and enjoy the atmosphere of this beautiful room, with views from all windows onto either the private courtyard or the private garden, leading to the rolling fields and quiet woods of the Wenlock Edge.
A magnificent dining room needs a kitchen to match, and Toad Hall’s modern, fully equipped cook’s kitchen is just the ticket. With a large electric range cooker, microwave, large fridge, separate freezer, dishwasher and a washer/dryer, you’ll find everything you need to prepare that special meal.
Toad Hall’s garden is completely enclosed and private. Enjoy a barbeque, play games with the children or simply sit and relax and take in the views. The patio is complete with solid teak garden furniture, including a large table and chairs seating 14, and a barbeque (please bring your own charcoal) making this an ideal spot for some al fresco dining and long lazy evenings watching the sun go down. Steps lead up from the patio to the large enclosed garden which has uninterrupted views up to the Wenlock Edge.
For those who prefer a little activity in their holiday, the swimming pool (open April to October) is just a short walk from Toad Hall, situated next to Pendennis (another of our properties). It is shared by guests of all our properties and is covered and heated, making it ideal for children. We’ve even supplied pool chairs for parents to sit in and keep an eye on the little ones and there is a changing room next to the pool too.
Parking is easy at Toad Hall. There is plenty of space with secure private parking for up to 10 cars and additional parking spaces available, if needed.
