Chesthill House is the principal sporting lodge on South Chesthill Estate, but there is also Chesthill House Annex and Gardener's Cottage. These are also bookable via this website.
Chesthill House sleeps up to 16. With COVID restrictions in 2020, the house can be split into the main house (sleeps 8 - 11) and the rear annex (sleeps 4-7) which can be booked together. In total there are 7 twin bedrooms and 1 single, plus an en-suite bedsit on the ground floor which is normally used for a cook/chef. 4 of the twins are en-suite (with baths and showers), and the remaining 4 bedrooms share 1 bathroom between 2 adjacent bedrooms (and 2 of the 4 have basins). The dining table seats 12 comfortably so it is recommended to limit adults to that number, with the other rooms available for children, however the table can be extended to 14 if required.
The ground floor includes the main entrance hall, sitting room with a TV, a bright spacious drawing room with a CD player and radio, small study and large dining room. There is a drying room, cloakroom with wc, and gun room with a secure cabinet. Wireless broadband internet is available on the ground floor, but the speeds can be slow. There's a games room with snooker, table tennis, darts and a stage for budding child actors!
The lodge is let on a fully furnished basis including all linen and towels. Daily housekeeping is provided by Liz the housekeeper and it is recommended that a cook be employed (we can recommend a good agency). Ainster, the estate keeper, will be on standby to help you with all outdoor activities.
House-trained dogs are allowed, but downstairs only. Dogs that might cause any damage should be kept in the kennels in the stables in the yard, or in private cars.
