The exquisite 18th century Orangery sits in the grounds of Frampton Court and is the perfect place for discerning holiday-makers seeking elegance and an idyllic setting.
The Orangery is often booked by family parties requiring space to sleep up to 8 people with lots of room to entertain, but smaller groups desiring a secluded hide-away are equally at home here.
The Orangery has been converted into a charming holiday retreat from its original use as a garden house. The stunning setting provides fine views over the ornamental canal, the romantic woodland walk and stunning surrounding parkland. Click here for the history of Frampton Court.
The Orangery has been featured in Country Life magazine as ‘the prettiest garden building in England’, and is on the cover of Pevsner’s Buildings of England, in which it is described as one of the most unusual examples of ‘Strawberry Hill’ gothic architecture in the country.
The Sitting Room
The wonderful octagonal sitting room overlooks the ornamental canal, The Park and the garden with three huge windows and comfortable sofas and armchairs in period style. The sitting room is decorated with a fabulous wall painting by Anna Clifford, and is a blissful room in which to relax – exotic in the summer and cosy in the winter. The room has an original open fireplace, and logs from the Estate are supplied during the winter months. There is a digital television, DVD, video and WiFi.
The unusual L-shaped kitchen combines 19th Century charm with modern efficiency.
It is fully fitted with washing machine, microwave, electric hob and oven, cutlery, china and glass, and cooking equipment. The tumble drier, fridge and freezer can be found in the larder.
Hall & Staircase
Here is The Orangery at its most splendid – stand in the octagonal hall or on the staircase and the sophistication of this eccentric building is revealed in all its glory. The fantastic cantilevered stone staircase spirals up to the first floor and beyond to the roof, and the doorways are beautifully designed with ogee-arched frames.
The perfectly proportioned dining room is a splendid octagonal room and is ideal for entertaining. There are views from the magnificent windows across the ornamental canal and the woodland garden. The ornate 18th century fireplace adds a touch of grandeur, and the room is furnished with period furniture.
The table seats eight people very comfortably and the hatch into the kitchen makes culinary logisitcs easy!
