Barrow-upon-Soar chateau / country house description

Highton Manor offers luxurious, all en-suite accommodation for up to 23 people in 6 double bedrooms and 3 twin bedrooms. Staying at Highton Manor guests will also have unrestricted use of a beautiful indoor pool and spa.

Conveniently located for M1, M42, M6 and both East Midlands and Birmingham airports, yet set in 10 acres in stunning Leicestershire countryside.

Only 23 years old, but designed in traditional Queen Anne style, the property has been entirely refurbished in the last 3 years, with new en-suites, pool, cottage and most recently, stunning Miele kitchen.

Interior and Grounds:
There are nine en-suite bedrooms which are made up of the following: Two twins and three doubles on the first floor of main house, including a master four poster suite. There are also two doubles on ground floor of main house.

In addition, there are four double futons which can be placed as guests wish, therefore there is sleeping accommodation for up to 23 people.

The stunning indoor pool and spa, kept beautifully warm with a state of the art heating/dehumidifying system, is available to guests at all times, together with the adjoining garden room, which looks out over beautiful Charnwood Forest countryside.

Meals can be taken in the dining room, with seating for 18 people, or in the stunning kitchen with huge pink island. Breakfast, evening meals and picnic lunches are available on request, as are a host of other extras – just ask and we will sort it!

Outside the property offers large gardens, which guests are free to roam. An extensive network of public footpaths is accessible from the rear of the property, which lead across beautiful countryside. An equestrian facility at the rear, with all weather ménage and 9 stables, makes this the perfect retreat for horse lovers, who, by separate arrangement, are welcome to bring their horses with them.

                                          About: Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne.
