Located in fifty acres of garden and parkland between Hay on Wye and the Brecon Beacons, this beautiful country manor house, only 90 minutes from Bristol, offers a calm haven in which to recharge and have fun and is ideal for getting away from the city and indulging in a relaxing environment. Furnished to a modern standard without compromising its historical details, Lilypond Manor is the perfect venue for entertaining guests and is extremely popular with wedding and corporate parties.
The property epitomises modern luxury and quintessential country house living where guests can enjoy log fires, a billiards room, a gun room, a treatment room, REN toiletries, wireless internet, a baby grand piano, secret doors, a trout filled brook, and fifty acres of garden and parkland to explore. There is plenty of space for both formal dining parties and relaxed lounging and a wonderful conservatory for lazy breakfasts and sunny afternoons.
There are nine bedrooms - five fixed doubles and four can be a twin or double - and seven bathrooms to sleep up to 18 people – all sharing a well-appointed mixture of beautiful antiques and sumptuous fabrics – a splendid ‘home away from home’.
One of the most appealing elements of the manor house is the attention to detail and free concierge assistance. Many on-site activities and services can be arranged including, clay shooting, foraging, fishing, archery, falconry, yoga, picnics, barbecues, cookery demonstrations, croquet, spa treatments, fully-stocked wine cellar, chef, housekeeping, entertainers and butlers*.
The care and assistance extended to guests when it comes to entertainment and additional services is of particular appeal to corporate groups. With friendly local churches ***, a marquee site and excellence in assistance and services, it’s no wonder that Lilypond Manor is also extremely popular with guests looking to host wedding receptions; a perfect venue for both intimate and large-scale celebrations. Guests would, however, need to book early as only a limited number of weddings can be accepted every year, making the wedding day even more unique and special.
Lilypond Manor knows how to go the extra mile for its guests, providing them with the option to also experience a wealth of activities right on its doorstep including, shooting, course & fly fishing, paintballing, SAS survival, canoeing, horse riding and trekking, paragliding, helicopter experiences, hot air ballooning, golf, climbing, gliding, caving and, of course, strolling through the wonderful countryside, enjoying the magnificent scenery and wildlife. The house can also recommend a range of restaurants, local pubs and cafés to explore.
If you are looking for a real country manor house experience steeped in luxury and someone to help look after you and your guests in style, this is the perfect retreat for you.
