Unique Features

Sheepscombe House is a rare gem that sparkles in a quintessentially English valley. The major part of a small Georgian manor house transformed into a welcoming and cosy family home yet displaying impeccable taste and style; and private as well. The house - with its large child welcoming gardens, wild meadows, an incredibly romantic, yet practical, swimming pool and valley side tennis court - is hidden away behind electronic security gates to create a very secure and private environment yet a walk away from the local country pub.


Sheepscombe House has generous living and entertaining space over three floors with an elegant drawing room that opens out onto the private rear terrace garden. The kitchen breakfast room features both a a six-ring double oven range cooker as well as a wood fired Rayburn range, and is totally equipped for the ambitious amateur or professional chef. This leads into out into the modern conservatory dining room that in turn opens out onto the private terrace that is equipped for outdoor dining.

There are five bedrooms, three doubles two with their own en-suite facilities, a twin room and a three berth bedroom plus a further bathroom and separate shower room. There is a separate downstairs cloakroom. Sheepscombe is baby-friendly providing two cots and two high chairs.

Sheepscombe House has an amazing first floor Cinema Room where everyone can share an evenings entertainment or an afternoon of sports as well as having a downstairs Music Room with upright piano.


There are pretty gardens on three sides of the house and aside from the formal out door dining area - off the kitchen and conservatory dining room - plenty of spaces and areas to enjoy the stunning surroundings with a glass of wine and bowl of olives.

The swimming pool setting is sheltered and romantic and is fully equipped with loungers and dining furniture and a built in Pizza Oven. And as it is gated, safe for pets and young children. With a full height retractable glazed enclosure it is usable whatever the weather. Next door to the swimming pool is the full size all weather tennis court with great views across the valley.

Surrounded on two sides by its own fields - one which is home to the owner's Alpaca herd - there is plenty of space for children and pets to run wild. And as the garden is equipped with tree house and slide, climbing frame, football goal and sandpit Sheepscombe is very child friendly.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"A little belated I know but wanted to drop you a quick note to say a huge thank you for all your help at Sheepscombe House. We had an amazing time catching up with friends in a truly stunning property (and village). I also wanted to say a special thank you to you too. The welcome, your constant availability was second to none and for that reason we look forward to renting with you again. Wonderful property, host and week away. Thanks again."
