Broadfield is a wonderful home from home for up to 24 guests and is exclusively yours for the duration of your stay, whatever the occasion. It could be a family birthday, a reunion of friends, or just the chance for a countryside getaway.

The house dates in part from the 14th Century and is packed with beautiful original features – wood paneled walls, stucco ceilings and roaring fires in nearly every room. But while keeping its historical touches, our renovation means that Broadfield also has all the comforts you would expect from a boutique hotel, including huge showers, comfy beds and snuggly sofas.


On our ground floor, there are three different sitting areas for you to enjoy. Our decadent navy blue lounge is perfect for whiling away the hours in front of a roaring fire; the inner hall is a great space for pre-dinner drinks, whether with the summer sun flooding in or looking out onto a winter’s night; and our snug is a cosy room to read, catch up on some TV, or for children to play.

We have a wonderful wood paneled dining room with more than enough space for all your party to sit, eat and make merry. And there’s a breakfast room too for those who want a more informal place to dine, or even to catch up on work. The modern kitchen has plenty of space to cook, and with its table and seating provides a social space for the chef and their helpers! For parties with babies and toddlers, we can provide four highchairs, as well as children’s cutlery and crockery.


The library has a large selection of books and comes with a pool table, perfect for those more competitive guests. We also have a separate large games room above the Broadfield bar, with a cinema area and table tennis table. The bar comes as part of your hire on a DIY basis. Or it can be stocked and staffed at an additional cost, should you want a space for more guests to join you for a special occasion.

On top of this, we provide board games, DVDs, books, children’s toys and games, as well as a special Broadfield treasure hunt to keep our younger guests entertained. In Summer, there are also garden games, including croquet, football croquet and giant Jenga. We also have a swing and slide for very little ones so that they’re not left out of the outside fun!


Upstairs at Broadfield, we have nine beautiful bedrooms, all with their own identity and style. Several have seating areas overlooking Broadfield’s wonderful gardens – great for those early risers or just for a bit of quiet time away from the hubbub. Two have superking beds, six kingsize and one a double. The superkings can be split into two full sized singles if required. We can also fit z-beds (at a small additional cost) and cots into many of the rooms for children or young adults. All of the bedrooms either have an en-suite, a private bathroom or share with just one other bedroom. The six bathrooms have large waterfall showers, and one of the bathrooms has a lovely big bath for those who prefer a relaxing soak.

We ask that guests bring their own mattresses and bedding for the cots, but we do have a baby bath and baby bath seat if needed. We also have toilet steps and seats for toddlers.

We do have the option of a sofa bed in our snug in case any of our guests need a downstairs bedroom, please ask for more information.

The grounds

Broadfield has five acres of gardens, which back onto fields to ensure total privacy. The house is linear in design so all of the gardens are south facing, making breakfast, lunch or even dinner outside a must when the weather is good. The long patio faces onto our David Austin rose garden, which flowers from Summer into early Autumn, giving beautiful colour and scent. We have firepits available too, so guests can use the gardens from sunrise to sunset!

Broadfield boasts two huge lawns, ideal for playing garden games, picnicking or just for lazing in the sun. The huge kitchen garden is stocked with fruit, vegetables and flowers in the spring and summer months. Further down the garden, you’ll find the summer house, a lovely place to chill out with a book, a coffee or a glass of wine. Next to that you have our few vines and the orchard – guests are very welcome to enjoy its bounty, whether eaters or cookers.

Outside our bar is a pizza oven, which guests can use (please ask for details), or we can bring in caterers to do the cooking while you enjoy the eating.

Broadfield has two large graveled courtyards, one of which can be used to park, although there is also a large car park behind an old tithe barn opposite the house.
