Hot Tub & Living Spaces

On the ground floor at Dover House you will discover a stunningly appointed kitchen with the solid oak dining table seating up to twelve guests. The sitting room boasts cosy sofas around an original open fireplace. You can store your coats, bags and shoes in the convenient cloakroom and you will also find a washer and dryer if you are staying for an extended time. Outside, the round sitting area is the perfect setting for a long girly chat over a bottle (or two) of prosecco, and this overlooks the bubbling outdoor hot tub and courtyard area, where there is space to dine al-fresco if you wish. Champagne, chocolates, juices, biscuits and more can all be enjoyed from the luxury and carefully considered welcome hamper provided upon arrival, and if arranged prior to your stay you may enjoy use of the outdoor pool on the grounds of the manor. For now, relish the privacy of your own wing, gather around the TV on late nights and have a pamper session, the venue for the hen party of the year! You and your friends will look back with the fondest memories of a relaxed and reviving retreat.
