Houle Estate - Country house for 61 people in Kidderminster

Bedrooms 10
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Country house, 10 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 61 people

Houle Estate is a magnificent, Grade II listed Georgian country manor, making an idyllic setting for special celebrations and weddings, with a quintessential English charm.First built in 1778, Houle Estate maintains its traditional aesthetic from the marble pillared fireplace to the stained glass windows, the flagstone flooring to the mahogany bannisters. Outside the quaint beauty continues, with wisteria climbing the redbrick exterior, leafy gardens and big lawns stretching out from the house across the private parkland, all completely secluded by the mature woodland.Several of the bedrooms have been furnished with as many beds as possible to allow for large groups to all stay in the same home, offering an impressive capacity of 61! Yet, the master bedroom remains for just two, with a large four poster bed, sofas, and a beautiful wardrobe with full length mirror. Houle Estate is an authentic English mansion, offering an unusual chance to allow an entire party to stay together and make an unforgettable holiday of that special event.
