Moffat Mansion is a superb example of a Victorian house. The property is thought to date from the mid-1800s and was built by the Hay family whose business was in Glasgow and who used the house as holiday accommodation. The property is Grade-II Listed and has extensive accommodation arranged over lower ground, ground and first floors, which has been substantially upgraded by the current owners and retains many of the original period features.
The house is situated at the centre of its 7.6 acres and has wonderful views out over the parkland. The mansion affords guests the chance to experience luxurious relaxation in abundance. The impressive reception rooms, large entrance hall and cantilevered staircase hints at pomp and grandeur, yet the ambience remains inviting with a peaceful welcoming feel. This property is also a spectacular and unique location for a wedding ceremony to remember- just imagine the photographs!
The spacious twin room and three large double bedrooms (two of which are en-suite) reside upon the first floor of the property, whilst the attic room and master bedroom with en-suite are both on the top floor. All bedrooms are well-appointed with a selection of faux fur throws, elegant furnishings and the finest of linens to ensure a restful night's sleep. There is a shared bathroom with a stand-alone bath and a unique cowhide rug providing added interest for the eye.
The Parsonage stands surrounded by twelve acres of magical gardens complete with mystical topiary, sweeping lawns, colour-filled borders, fruitful orchards, ponds and beautiful parkland with arboretum. The wide paved terrace to the rear of the property is simply perfect for al fresco dining or informal BBQs as the sun sets on the day's adventures. Look out for the tall fountain spurting out of a cider press stone - an impressive spectacle!
Take a long soak in one of the deep tubs and let your troubles melt away. While away an afternoon with your nose in a book on the galleried landing or in the beautifully serene orangery; both are great spaces to escape the hubbub of the main house and steal yourself a few quiet moments. The top meadow area in the gardens makes a wonderful picnic spot and has fabulous panoramic views of the Abberley Hills.
