|Portman Lodge is the main wing and entrance into a large Victorian building originally known as St Martin's House. The house was built for Lord Portman's estate in the late 19th century and is thought to have been a residence for choristers for St Martin's church. The majority of the original fixtures and fittings remain, in particular the attractive Victorian tiled floor in the entrance hall and corridor

The accommodation offers 1 Superior Room with Kingsize bed, 1 Twin Room which can be used as a double when required, 1 Family Room with kingsize bed and 2 single beds and 1 Double Room. The Superior Room and Family Room have ensuites with both bath and a walk-in shower while the Double and Twin room have en-suite's with a walk in shower or bath with shower over. The rooms also have television with radio, free wi-fi, hairdryer, and hospitality trays. All 4 rooms are individually decorated with their own theme and as they are situated to the side and rear of the building are quite quiet and protected from any traffic noise from the adjacent road. 3 rooms have ceiling fans in anticipation of English summer weather. Unfortunately we do not have any ground floor rooms. Our family room is in the first floor annex. This can be used as a self catering, one family bedroom, holiday flat as separate details below if preferred. We regret that we normally don't accept children less than 6 years of age.
|All of our cooking uses fresh local produce and our "Full English Breakfast" has earned much praise. Vegetarian / vegan options are available and special diets and religious requirements can be catered for upon request.
The house has a private patio area for guest use. It is very pretty in the summer and suitable for quiet relaxation in the open air
