Piper House is a large characterful and rambling property with 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. It has been created out of an ancient building, parts of which are over 900 years old, and offers nearly 1700 square feet of space internally. Piper House is fully furnished and stylish with an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture. The upstairs features a fabulous 50 foot reception room. The downstairs area includes two large reception rooms, one has recently been refurbished as is now a TV snug, the other is an open plan kitchen living area with a sofa and large dining table seating 16-18. Hard tennis court - opposite the house in the meadow. It is hard to price the house in a 'one price fits all way' as all groups are different - please contact us for a precise rate for your group!

SPECIAL OFFER FOR LIMITED WEEKENDS IN NOV 2018 - PRICES REDUCED. The property has been designed to make maximum use of the space, and the focus is on light and open plan living (although Aunby Cottage end, which forms one wing, has a more traditional feel). Piper House offers 7 large double bedrooms, 5 of which have king sized beds (which can be divided to offer twins) the 6th and 7th have a standard double. There are 3 reception rooms. One is 50 foot and contains a TV and separate play area, a second is a large open kitchen diner, with a table that seats 16-18 comfortably, the third acts as a TV snug The fact that the property has so much space, and its layout, mean that it is ideal for larger groups where perhaps different age groups do not want to be on top of each other all the time. Outside, the property has plenty of space, (unfenced), including a designer 'desert garden' terrace with lake and meadow views, and ample parking space. Wifi is available throughout the property (although please note that the thickness of the walls makes WIFI patchy) Barbeque and garden furniture available, also cots, high chairs and booster seats. We are extremely family friendly, and guests enjoy wandering through the mown paths in the wildflower meadow, taking time to sit on the benches and enjoy the wildlife. Younger guests may enjoy coming face to face with the chickens we keep. Aunby lies in gently rolling lincolnshire countryside and makes an ideal base for one of the many walks in the area, proximity to Rutland Water and all the facilities on offer there is a great benefit, as is of course the wonderful old stone town of Stamford. Tolethorpe open air theatre is a couple of miles away, as is Burghley House. We can arrange tours of Burghley, Grimsthorpe, Rockingham Castle and Belvoir Castle, for those interested in the local great houses. We can arrange for a daily maid service if preferred, and also a cook for lunch/dinner if required. Babysitters can be arranged. The property lies 5 miles (8 km) north of Stamford in a rural location with wonderful lake and wildflower meadow views. There is ample parking for up to 10 cars, We have an extensive DVD library of over 200 films - the list is in the property and available on request in advance if you would like your chosen films to be waiting for you. The house is part of a very rural hamlet and is extremely quiet and peaceful - it is an oasis of calm. Especially when the sun is shining! The house and location are not suited to parties or loud music and we ask guests to respect this. More
