Hidden away in the Worcestershire countryside, this Grade-II* listed Georgian home was built back in 1735 by the Reverend William Whitcombe. In the nineteenth century, two more wings were added and the property has undergone an extensive refurbishment in recent years, which means that visitors coming in the twenty-first century will find a unique property that combines age-old glamour with modern amenities. All the essentials for a rural retreat are present and correct, from the Aga in the kitchen and the roaring fireplace in the living room to the rolltop bathtubs in three of the bathrooms. Add to that a gym, home cinema and games room featuring tables for foosball and air hockey, and you can be sure of no boredom among guests, no matter how torrential the rain is outside. What's more, the host has a massive contact book of professionals to make your stay unforgettable, ranging from private chefs and personal trainers to masseuses and after dinner speakers. If the weather smiles on you during your stay, there are plenty of ways to enjoy this. The home is surrounded by ten acres of private land, on which you'll find a tennis court, as well as a heated swimming pool and a terrace complete with a barbecue. If you're in the mood to walk, there are waterfalls, woodland and wonderful views to be found on foot, while there are plenty of distractions just a short drive away. The quaint town of Ludlow takes twenty-five minutes to reach, while the Wyre Forest is a twenty-minute drive.
