Bankfield House is a very spacious house which is perfect for groups of people. Guests can find their own in time in the beautiful bedrooms and come together in one of the many entertaining spaces to drink tea or have a nice dinner. Families that stay with us always comment on the fun their kids have had exploring the house and groups of friends love the entertaining spaces of the conservatory or indeed sitting by the AGA in the kitchen. When the weather’s bright, the kids can run wild in the gardens while parents sit on the patio keeping watch.
