If you’re planning a very special break with a large number of friends and family, Spicer Manor gives you all the space and amenities you could ever wish for. With a long dining table that seats 30 guests, large sitting rooms with opulent leather settees to sink into, a games room on the top floor with everything from pool and snooker to air hockey tables, this could be the setting to a very memorable break indeed.
The owners have paid great attention to detail throughout, with individually decorated en-suites for all the master bedrooms, and beautiful touches like a stag head punch bowl and end-of-bed ottomans. The kitchen is the perfect setting for a get-together, with breakfast bars and chairs as well as a large Yorkshire range to make things cosy. Speaking of the perfect setting, the swooping central staircase creates the ideal photo opportunity for guests.
Behind the property is a large decked area, with rattan furniture to seat 30 guests and not one but two hot tubs. The patio looks out onto the beautiful Yorkshire countryside beyond, and you’re in the perfect spot for lots of walks across the Pennines and South Yorkshire. But with so much waiting for you back at Spicer Manor, you’ll probably want to head back to your home-from-home very soon!
