Completely unique, outrageously lavish and as seen on BBC’s ‘This Is My House’ Manor Sun Retreat is a dreamlike setting for group stays of up to 15 guests in rural Lincolnshire.
A Grade II-listed, three-storey mansion that dates back to the 17th century, you’ll feel like seasoned lords and ladies, holidaying in your very own historic country retreat. Yet the delights you’ll discover both inside and out are anything but traditional!
Boasting professional and opulent design touches throughout, this is a seriously imaginative retreat that offers something special for everybody.
Claim a lounger in the Real Sunlight room, complete with palm trees and beach scenes. Here you can bask in healthy sunshine 365 days a year, without the bother of applying sunscreen… and the rays are child and dog-friendly, too.
By evening, you can relax in the laid-back, boho-themed lounge, or make like James Bond and head for the glitzy casino and disco room. Test your mettle with a hair-raising game of blackjack or roulette, then dance the night away under the disco lights!
Don’t worry if you’d rather retreat from all the noise, though, since there’s also a dedicated yoga studio and meditation area on the second floor that’s ideal for Zen-types (not to mention a Zen-style bedroom).
Come together over a banquet whipped up in the huge, well-equipped family kitchen (yes, it’s even got a central island!) in the grand, medieval-themed dining room, or take your celebrations outside and break bread as the sun sets.Keep reading
