Orchard Court

Tradition for the modern guest

Built in 1644, this magnificent manor in Herefordshire defines country house living, set on a traditional estate that simply exudes the peace and tranquillity of a bygone age. Beautifully renovated to high modern standards without compromising its traditional grandeur or historical legacy, Orchard Court successfully conveys a warm and welcoming aura that allows guests to feel completely at home, making it the perfect party house for friends, families and corporates. 

The house is surrounded by 1,000 acres of Duchy of Cornwall land with far reaching views to the Black Mountains; guests can walk for hours without ever coming across a road. A short walk through the garden takes you to the working small holding, the charming ancient church and the ‘Wain House’ - a lovely open fronted barn which is a fantastic space for events.

Celebrate in style

The beautiful entrance to the house with its large double doors leads straight into the great hall where guests are greeted with a cosy reception area, an open fire and wooden floors, covered in beautiful oriental rugs. The kitchen, equipped with an Aga, epitomises real family space and is supported by a separate catering kitchen for guests who plan on holding large parties and celebrations. 

Further rooms to enjoy include the study and the Chinoiserie room, both with open fires, and the games room with its billiard table. There are many options to keep all guests entertained; the property is equipped with several televisions and a Wii and the cellar houses a large flat screen and a DVD library. 

Outdoors, guests can enjoy a barbecue or a spot of croquet. There is even a yoga studio and the house can arrange beauty treatments on site for guests looking for the ultimate relaxation or detox weekend.

If you have been searching for a picturesque countryside spot to spend some quality time with friends and family, then you don’t need to look any further – Orchard Court hits the spot.
