Property of the Day: Detton Hall, Worcestershire

An Elizabethan manor house with countryside views, a self-contained apartment and a small lake

THE PROPERTY: Situated in an elevated position, surrounded by far-reaching southerly views, the house is listed in Simon Jenkins’ book, England’s Thousand Best Houses. The Hall is approached via a private driveway and has stunning Elizabethan half-timber and stone architecture.

THE LOCATION: The Hall is situated in the small countryside hamlet within the parish of Neen Savage, with excellent riding opportunities thanks to the proximity of the Jack Mytton Bridleway. Cleobury Mortimer, a market town with an extensive range of shops, is close by, and the Hall offers easy access to all major transport links.  

THE INTERIOR: Large south-facing windows allow for plenty of light to filter into the property and a wealth of original features is evident in the form of panelled rooms, high ceilings, mullioned windows and impressive fireplaces. There are five bedrooms spread across two floors, with the master bedroom accompanied by a luxurious bathroom. The Granary, a self-contained two-bedroom apartment on the third floor, is ideal for guests.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Detton Hall’s equestrian facilities include fine stabling and a manege. There are excellent riding opportunities in the area, with the Jack Mytton Bridleway passing close to the property, and easy access to Clee Hill.
