Rainsbury House

Rainsbury House is set in 16 private acres of picturesque woodland and pasture, which adjoins the tranquil and exquisitely beautiful 'Upton Arm' of Wimbleball Lake. The Haddeo River runs through our land and into the lake. The Haddeo is bounded on one side by our four-acre wood and on the other by our hilly pastures (full of gambolling lambs in the spring).

We offer a choice of two delightful Four-Star Gold, centrally-heated, properties (sleeping a total of 13 + cots) available separately or as one interlinked venue for larger groups, friends or families.

We are both Family Friendly and Baby Friendly. As well as providing cots and high chairs, we also provide baby monitors, night lights, changing mats, nappy bins, booster seats and socket covers. We also provide free nappy bags and baby wipes as part of our welcome pack.

You have direct access from our land to the beautiful, secluded paths through the wooded hills that bound the 'Upton Arm' of Wimbleball Lake. Our guests are free to roam our land and the woods around the lake. Deer thrive in the woodland and can be seen daily around the lake; they are frequent visitors in our fields and gardens too.

The landscape around Rainsbury House is breathtaking. We are a haven walkers and cyclists as well as for artists and photographers. From our stunning new studio we offer painting and photography courses and master classes. The studio facilities are also available for professional artists/photographers and writers to run their own courses and for groups to hire. Please contact us to discuss.

For cyclists, we have a secure lock-up for bikes and a convenient bike-wash area with hose facilities. And, for cyclists and walkers we have a drying/boot room in which to dry out your kit.

Parking is not a problem here, we have plenty of space.
