The Owl House is a beautiful brick and flint barn in the heart of rural paradise, surrounded by a herd of doe-eyed, hand-fed breeding deer. Step over the courtyard for a dip in the ten-metre indoor, temperature-controlled swimming pool with beautiful modular ceiling with fibre optic lights and a separate changing area, WC and shower. There is also the option of a sauna, a round of tennis on the tarmac court or a game of pétanque.
Dominated by a magnificent open-plan living space and a huge handmade 16ft table with an impressively imposing chandelier made with shed antlers, it has a double vaulted ceiling with exposed Canadian spruce timbers which will catch your breath! Beautiful Indian stone flooring will keep you cool in the summer months, under floor heating will warm you at cooler times and the wood burning stove ensures it is cosy for the winter, making this hideaway an all-year-round retreat, perfect for families and groups of friends.
Every care has been taken to build an authentic and characterful residence with all the mod-cons to make your stay luxurious and comfortable. A bespoke staircase takes you up into a lovely loft room, with a super king bed and a walk-through to a double ended slipper bath, twin basins and a deluxe shower. Velux windows provide a view over the courtyard with its centre-piece fountain. It’s only a short walk to the local gastro-pub, The Dabbling Duck, in Great Massingham too!
Bedroom three, 'The Dorm'/ bunk room has two super-king zip and link beds plus two single top bunks, so can be made up as six single beds, or any combination - please specify at time of booking.
Dogs must be on leads at all times, as deer roam around the entire property.
All three of the Hill Farm Massingham barns properties can be booked individually, as a combination of two of the barns or altogether to sleep 31 people. Fallow Folly (7 people) and The Owl House (10 people) are interlinked internally, while access to Red Stag Lodge (14 people) is via outside. The Owl House is the most spacious of the properties, and is thought of as the “entertainment capital” if you take all three.
Pool and sauna open all year round. It is a shared facility but each property is given allocated times when they can use it. Pool temperature is approx. 29 degrees.
Please note you will be asked to sign a Declaration/ Disclaimer on arrival, with the owners, for use of the pool and sauna, being around the lake and other general rules in the parkland to do with the wildlife.
