Old Purves Hall

Old Purves Hall is a magnificent and spacious retreat that is the perfect holiday base for larger groups. From the oak beamed drawing room to the well-appointed kitchen with its central island and long dining table, the whole property has been expertly designed and furnished to create a very special holiday home. A fine, characterful staircase rises to the six large and luxurious bedrooms above.
Touches of period detail abound, such as the studded oak doors that open onto the inner hallway or the cosy inglenook fireplace in the drawing room. Guests’ comfort has been considered in every detail, such as the underfloor heating in the boot room to help you and any four-legged friends dry off after a walk, or the tasteful fabrics and artworks throughout the property.
The walled garden boasts a fire pit and gas barbecue, along with a converted stable that now functions as a games room. With three acres of woodland to explore, you could spend a day or two without stepping off the property, but there are plenty of landmarks and attractions in the nearby vicinity to tempt you, including country pursuits such as hunting and fishing as well as the spectacular heritage coast. One final selling point, the owners offer the chance to book a private cook and can arrange a wine delivery to your door too. This holiday at a glance
