This is your chance to stay in this magnificent Georgian country house and outbuildings on the western slopes of the Malvern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, close to the Herefordshire & Worcestershire border. The house is the ideal place for a weekend break and the perfect venue to celebrate a special occasion for large families and groups.
This stunning and truly quintessential Georgian mansion is set in glorious grounds and surrounded by breathtaking rolling countryside. The property is made up of the principal dwelling (the main house), and an annexe which can be taken if your numbers require. Other converted outbuildings: The Clock Tower, The Loose Box , The Engine Room etc are also available so that the property can be tailored to your numbers and requirements
The house is available for exclusive weekend hire and mid week breaks
The house is surrounded by high walls and hedges and is in grounds of 6 acres so very private. There are several garden 'rooms' to explore and two ponds, one of which can be used to swim in [at your own risk] if you are hardy enough to brave the cold water.
The reception hall is a grand one, befitting a wealthy gentleman's residence, as Barton Court was. It has examples of some of the fine period plasterwork that is found in the other principal rooms of the house. The ceiling in the drawing room, which leads from the entrance hall is a particularly fine example of 18th century craftsmanship at its best. Some say it was constructed by Robert Adam's own master plasterers moonlighting from another job locally!
The dining room is elegant and seats up to 40 in style. From there, a door leads through to the library with mellow oak bookcases filled with books, a pool table and comfy seating around a glamorous fireplace. There are two ground floor bedrooms: one with an ensuite shower room which is useful for those who cannot manage stairs but are otherwise sprightly, the other is wheelchair friendly and has an ensuite to suit.. The kitchen is full of useful appliances and has a lovely breakfast area in the sun room overlooking and with direct access to the lawn.
First Floor Description
The house is divided front and rear into the medieval portion and the Georgian portion. The 'best' rooms are at the front of the house looking toward Gloucestershire over the bridge that belongs to the property and the landscaped fields that once belonged to the house.
The master bedroom has a dual aspect from which you can see 3 counties on a clear day. It has an ensuite bathroom that boasts a double Perrin and Rowe shower and a glamorous 'lit bateau'.
Bedrooms 2 and 3, each with their own individually designed ensuite facilities, look south. Bedroom 4 is very dramatic, painted black, and with a four poster bed.
At the rear, Bedroom 5 is panelled and offers lovely views over the fields. Bedroom 6 is often used by children because of its 1950s schoolroom decor while Bedroom 7 has been decorated to resemble the inside of a big top. Bedroom 8 is the smallest of all the bedrooms in the main house but nonetheless charming and with uninterrupted views of the hills.
Window Views Description
There are stunning country views from every window and every aspect. Barton Court is truly magical in this regard.
