The space
We love interior design fusing old and modern furniture and art. The house was built in 1780 and has some very sympathetic extensions over the years to extend the space. We have a large garden and are happy for guests to wander down with a chilled glass of wine or beer to enjoy the quiet. Guests are welcome to eat outside as we have a covered dining space and bar. Fully COVID cleaned bedroom, bathroom and all guest areas. Would also act as a great workaway retreat in the countryside for anybody looking for a change of scenery.

Where you’ll be

Yaxley, United Kingdom

Yaxley is a large village with pubs, eateries and some small local shops. We are 5 minutes from Holme Hall wedding venue and 12 minutes from Peterborough City centre which has good high street shops and lots of eating and entertainment. Stamford is 10-15 minutes drive so we can be a good base for exploring this historic georgian town including Burghley House. There are some delightful villages in the area including, Fotheringhay, where King Richard ||| was born and Mary Queen of Scots was executed. Yaxley itself was an inland port sitting on England's lost lake of Whittlesey Mere and the prisoners of the Napolionic War came in before being transported to the garrison at Normans Cross. We are happy to give guests ideas for spendign the day locally. For wildlife enthusiasts, there is an abundance of nature reserves, with Holme 5 minutes away itself home to some rare Buzzards and much more.

We are a married couple with a beautiful daughter aged 12 yrs. I have 2 older daughters from a previous marraige, aged 29 and 31. My wife is Thai and she makes wonderful Thai food and we present it in a fusion of eastern and western styles. If you stay with us there may be some fresh Thai dish going. I run my own marketing consultancy mostly in London specialising on the Financial Services sector. I love to ride my mountain bike [in as many far off places as I can], love gardening, interior design, soul and jazz music and hosting social gatherings. We go to Thailand frequently and the whole culture is just us, friendly, socialable, open and generous. As guests we are incredibly tidy, respectful and will enjoy a good chat. As hosts we are similar and will be very welcoming, provide spotless facilities and make you feel like you are at home. We try and live live to the full and believe life is not a rehersal so make today count.
