Let Baroque Villas arrange a stay for you in one of the most exclusive, luxury holiday homes in England, Forest Court. Open for bookings for only two months (July and August 2016), this magnificent mansion awaits
Nestling in historic Hampshire in Southern England, birthplace of famous literary authors Charles Dickens and Jane Austen, Forest Court is a true luxury gem. Located just two hours from London, this exclusive holiday home is so sought-after that it is only booked out for two months of the year.
Reminiscent of the halcyon days of Old England, with lush rural surrounds and every possible sumptuous comfort, Forest Court is a late 18th Century farm designed by renowned architect Samuel Wyatt. It’s part of the Somerly Estate, and is the only of the three buildings on the estate that is available to rent. With an idyllic country setting, this Grade II listed heritage building has been meticulously transformed to its former glory, and is known as being one of the most prestigious, luxury homes in England. Today it’s a perfect replica of a Georgian mansion, but offers every modern convenience to ensure that guests enjoy every possible comfort and luxury. It offers three beautiful bedrooms and every facility for a peaceful country holiday, full of hiking, climbing, cycling, sunbathing or just lazing around with a good book.
Located in spectacular countryside, Forest Court is the stunning base from which to explore the surroundings, including neighboring Ringwood Forest, en route to the charming little village of Verwood, with its iconic little stores including a traditional butcher and the local newsagent. You must spend some time in the local pub, the Albion Inn, downing a pint of beer and getting to know the locals.
Slightly further afield you’ll find the seaside resort of Bournemouth, where you can laze on seven miles of sandy beaches, enjoy some of the tastiest fish and chips of the region, and savor the seaside resort’s various entertainment facilities.
You won’t want to wander too far, though. Forest Court is so charming and luxurious, you’ll want to spend lots of time taking in the magnificent views, strolling through the sunken Italian garden or the nearby forest, and experiencing the true magic of the English countryside. Spend a few hours on the terrace with its breathtaking garden views enjoying pre-dinner drinks, then head inside for a gourmet feast prepared by experienced chefs from locally sourced, fresh ingredients.
Of course, London is just a few hours away, with all its urban charms. This truly offers the opportunity for the best of two wonderful English worlds.
