Why Kate Maitland chose England

We chose Aunby because we love Stamford, a beautiful and quintessentially English old stone town with a great arts centre, great schools, fantastic shopping and eating.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We love Aunby because of the space, the fact that the countryside around us is so pretty, we are in the heart of England, steeped in history (part of the house was built using stone from an abandoned monastery that once stood here and is over 900 years old - we had to employ specialist stone masons who had previously been working on Chatsworth estate in Derbyshire when we converted the building) - and yet accessible to London, and the north of the country.

Beautiful location & fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Piper House in May 2017 as a group of 16 ladies for a friend's hen do wanting a relaxing weekend - the property suited us perfectly, was set up as all twin/triple rooms, loads of bathrooms to share & amazing dining area and also living room with plenty of space for all of us to sit round the table for dinner! Well equipped kitchen to cater for 16 people & whole house very clean/tidy. We hired caterers to come & cook on the Saturday evening which worked well for us. Kate, the owner, was very helpful leading up to us staying and asking about our needs, plus directions to the house as is pretty rural - and was there on arrival to show me round & explain about the house & surrounding areas, offered suggestions for local attractions and places to visit. Only 15 minutes from Stamford by car. Would stay here again definitely with a big group! Location is great - as not far from A1/other major roads so easy for ladies to get to from all different directions - but very quiet countryside retreat which is what we had hoped for. Thanks Kate & Piper House!

Lots of space inside and out made it a great for a large group with lots of children

  • 5 of 5

Katie couldn't have been more helpful to make our stay perfect. The bedrooms were very flexible so it meant that we could make the space work for us (three families with lots of young children). We were very lucky with the weather, which meant we could make full use of the outdoor space: the children loved playing tennis on the tennis court (which is very good quality) and going on nature walks around the wild meadow (there is a pond, and so young children had to be supervised in that area).

Perfect for a family break

  • 5 of 5

Great space for a family weekend. Lots of rooms to spend time together or equally lots of places to get some R&R and get away from the hustle and bustle. Great layout. And outside was perfect for a large extended family with lots of kids due to the outdoor space and particularly the tennis court which kept the little ones contained. And easy to get to from the North and South so suited our geographically spread family well. A great find!
