The Tallow Factory is a converted Tudor candle factory with four bedrooms over three floors, sleeping 10-12 guests comfortably. The ground floor living room and first floor master bedroom are the original part of the building dating back to the 16th century and the additional three floors were added in the 20th century to create a uniquely spacious retreat overlooking an classical English enclosed garden. In the spring and summer you can enjoy the many outdoor activities in the area followed by dining al fresco on our patio or deck. In autumn and winter you can enjoy cosying up by the fire with a good book after a long ramble in the crisp fresh air. Christmas and New Year are our most popular times of year because the house is perfect for large families or groups of friends celebrating the holidays together. We always get a real tree and decorate the house with exterior lighting as well so that all you need to do is show up and enjoy the festive season. Catering recommendations, massage treatments and group or individual yoga sessions are also available upon request. Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome for an additional pet supplement. Reserved off-street parking for two cars is also included in the rental price.
Our expansive living room with original Tudor wooden beams in the ceiling and cosy fireplace is furnished to accommodate your group with plenty of seating, making a magical space to share celebrations throughout the year, including Christmas or New Year’s Eve. There is space for a large dining table which can be added in this room upon request.
Our magnificent Tudor master bedroom has a king-size bed and its own sitting room with dedicated workspace. Guests staying in this room have their own ensuite toilet with sink and the choice to use either the shower room on the same floor or the full bathroom, down one small flight of stairs.
