42 Acres is surrounded by 700 further acres of ancient forest. Its ethos centres around sustainability, working with reclaimed materials and renewable energy to create an experience that is both joyful and luxurious. In the main house, skylights, original exposed beams and stand-alone baths await in guest bedrooms decorated with beautifully sourced tiles, fabrics and linens. Communal areas such as the library, the snug and the reading space evoke a stylish, eclectic and cosy ambience. Most recently, a magnificent 30ft yurt has been erected, and this plays host to many of the yoga classes. Beyond the main house are the quaintly named Deer Cottages, possibly in honour of their namesakes, which pass by peacefully from time to time.
