All our Country Houses are tailored to walkers and outdoor enthusiasts and have excellent boot and drying rooms, laundry facilities and a mini-shop for essentials such as maps, postcards and toiletries.
In the main house there is a small lounge, an attractive dining room and a cosy bar. The ballroom is a flexible space which can be used as a lounge, for dancing or for a variety of leisure activity holidays.
Free internet access is offered on a dedicated PC and Wifi is available in some public rooms. There is also a range of board games and books.
At the very top of the house is the fascinating observatory; an opportunity to try some star-gazing, or just enjoy the bird’s-eye view.
In the Windrush cottage there is an activity room which can be used as a painting studio or for smaller groups.
At the rear of the house there is an attractive walled garden with a large croquet lawn. This is a particularly attractive spot to relax after a day’s walk or activity.
Due to the layout and age of Harrington House, it is not recommended for wheelchair users or anyone with restricted mobility. Although one bedroom has wheelchair access, the access to the main house has some steps and internally there are some steps to negotiate.

The relaxed dinner is a highlight of any stay at our Country Houses - with tables seating up to 10 and no seating plan, it offers a great opportunity to get to know fellow guests. There is always a choice of dishes for every course, featuring good British cooking and often local specialities. Vegetarian meals are always available.
All our Country Houses have a well-stocked bar serving beer, wine and spirits.
Enjoy a drink in the bar before hearing about the next day's walks. After dinner there will be an activity or entertainment which you will be welcome to join. These vary from week to week but could include a talk on local history, quizzes or a stroll around Bourton; alternatively relax in our lounges or bar.
Many of our Leisure Activities holidays continue into the evening with programmed sessions. Other holidays will have the evenings free, and you will be welcome to join in other social activities that may be happening in the house.
We offer a range of evenings focusing on the local area, including a night out in Stratford with the chance to experience a performance by the Royal Shakespeare Company. On other evenings you may be able to join a ghost walk, enjoy a talk from a local speaker, or simply relax at the house and chat with the other guests and leaders in the bar.
Guests on Freedom Breaks which are scheduled alongside Guided Walking holidays are entirely welcome to join in the organised evening activities. Please note, not all Freedom Breaks will be with these holidays – if the evening activities are important to you, please check before booking.
Depending on your travel dates, there may be activities on offer in the house in the evening which you are welcome to take part in.
