Giraffes Roam The Grounds

Set on 140 acres of indigenous forest, the grounds provide sanctuary to eight resident Rothschild’s giraffe - part of the owners’ breeding programme for this critically endangered species. The six double bedrooms reflect the art deco period of the manor’s heritage, with large, comfortable four poster beds, stylish antique furniture, striking art decor and spacious, well appointed bathrooms.
