Coulscott’s biggest luxury property, with 8 bedrooms sleeping 15 people (plus two extra bookable beds and cots), is made up of the grand Georgian House and sixteenth century original Old Farmhouse joined together via a secret internal door disguised as a bookcase! The door can be left open or locked depending upon the needs of your party at the time.
The combination of these two luxury properties creates a truly special and spacious holiday destination with two kitchens and multiple living areas. It is ideal for multi-generational families or multiple families to have the space to both relax independently and come together with a large private games room and extensive terrace with private hot tub, outdoor dining and sunbathing loungers to while away a summer’s afternoon with a jug of Pimm's or two!
It is also an ideal celebration house with many choosing it for a special birthday or anniversary weekend with their friends and family - an ideal opportunity to book Coulscott's fine-dining private chef who can cook up a wonderful 3 course meal or 7 course taster menu paired with delicious wines while you sip a glass of bubbly in front of the log burner - and of course he does the washing up!
All the facilities available at Coulscott House are detailed on the individual pages for The Georgian House and Old Farmhouse. Up to two single beds can be booked to go in the Georgian House twin or king room to sleep 17 plus cots.
