Book Now

Endeavour is a large, well-appointed holiday property – perfect accommodation for large groups and those wanting to bring extended families or groups of families. The building overlooks a very beautiful part of the Ashcombe Valley and the main courtyard.  During 2017 the house was extensively refurbished.

The open-plan sitting room and dining room are decorated to a high standard, featuring two log burning stoves capable of keeping the whole house warm on their own in colder times. If that doesn’t appeal, the building has been rewired to include modern efficient electric radiators which are powered by Ashcombe’s 50KW solar array nearby. There is a bluetooth Sound Dock next to the 32″ digital TV and DVD player. The double bedrooms all have televisions installed.

The detached farmhouse sleeps up to 15 people in 7 bedrooms. The accommodation is split between ground and first floors which, together with a large dining room, a very spacious lounge and large modern kitchen / breakfast room and utility/ sauna room makes Endeavour a great holiday cottage in summer or winter. Endeavour has a large private car parking area and private walled patio garden where there is a gas bbq. Just across from the front door it is just a few yards to the heated indoor swimming pool and children’s play areas.

The kitchen is designed to cater for big groups so there is a large fridge freezer, a new Aga Cooker plus additional electric oven and induction hob.  Along with the rest of the property, the kitchen has been completely refurbished with granite worktops, new lighting, cupboards and slate floor.  The dining room tables can seat 16 people. The utility room beyond the kitchen has a 5 person private sauna for Endeavour’s guests to enjoy.

In the rear patio garden is a gas-fired Webber barbeque for outdoor cuisine at whatever time of year.

The property has super-fast wi-fi internet from Ashcombe’s own Airband mast.

Walking around the property
Entering the building through the front door leads into the large open-plan living rooms. On the right is the sitting room with leather sofas, a 32″ flat screen digital TV, and wood burner stove. On the left is the dining room with another wood burner stove. From the dining room the door leads to the kitchen and then utility room/ sauna room with a door to the sunny patio. From the entrance hall / living room past the downstairs WC there is a double bedroom with a new ensuite bathroom with over bath shower / WC.  This room is suitable for disabled guests and has a wall-mounted television.

Upstairs from the sitting room area there is a long landing with 6 further bedrooms: two double bedrooms each with en-suite shower rooms/W.Cs, a twin bedroom with ensuite shower/ WC, two triple-bedded rooms, one with en-suite shower /W.C. and a single bedroom ideal for smaller children.

    We have just arrived back from a lovely week at Endeavour with our family of 14 .There was 8 Adults and 7 grandchildren.
    Endeavour kitchen was big enough for everyone to be in there, to get
    there own children’s breakfast. Our grandchildren loved the pool Which was the perfect temperature. And the water is kept checked twice a day. They play ground outside my children loved too. And the youngest granddaughter loved her playroom. Just one thing to the owner, please coulld they put somewhere near the cooker hob, that when using frying pans and saucepans, on the Arger they cannot be used on the hub.
    Also the house would benefit from a paying tumble dryer.
    But everything else was perfect
