Walltree House is a truly unique property on the northern edge of the Cotswold countryside. This traditional manor house can sleep up to ten guests (see Finer Details), across four bedrooms, with three bathrooms. Each of the numerous reception rooms offers its own style through interesting artwork and unique touches, whilst still celebrating the period features typical of a house of its 18th century era. This spacious house is ideal for gatherings, with its grand dining room for celebratory meals, and drawing room with open fire, bar, and card table. Most of the rooms enjoy picturesque countryside views, especially the conservatory which is stunning in any season. Guests might catch a glimpse of wildlife, light aircraft and maybe even the odd skydiver! Outside, the vast gardens are a wonderful extension of the interior, with a large patio and grassy areas. Two well-behaved dogs are welcome to join the fun in this dog friendly holiday home.
