The Rooms

Immaculately chosen furniture and linens promise to spoil and cosset you in their perfection. Soft, muted and inviting colours house vintage and antique furniture pieces and wonderfully quirky accessories sure to bring a smile to your face. Vintage textiles, wool blankets, fluffy towels and pure cotton linen infuse both the double and twin rooms with warmth and welcoming snugness.

The Rest

Renovated servants’ quarters with two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, lounge diner and private garden complete with barbeque (as well as access to facilities at Glenholme).The Rookery is self catering gone posh. The building’s interior is country house magazine worthy (having featured in many) and the grounds equally as impressive. Nip into main house for dinner if you fancy a night off cooking.

The Cost

Most of the year there is a minimum seven night stay apart from a few weeks where four nights are allowed. Based on a seven night stay with full occupancy of both rooms the per night cost varies between £40 and £60 per room per night. That's between £580 and £850 per week rental cost. Short break prices are on offer but contact The Rookery for a quote.
