Homes to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

A special extended bank holiday weekend this week is allowing communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the Queen becoming the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, which marks 70 years of service. In celebration of this historic milestone, we have selected some of our homes for sale offering the perfect venue to host a fantastic party with friends and family…

Seatonthorpe Hall – Thorpe By Water

Where’s not to throw an amazing bash at this colossal home?! Plus you get to create all of the entertaining space yourself, which to us sounds like great fun. Guests will enjoy partying by the poolside or having a game of snooker in the games room once they have enjoyed a few drinks and canapés in the exquisite gardens and a delicious supper in the impressive open plan kitchen/diner. The evening can then continue with one of your favourite Royal films playing in the cinema room which also has a bar. Plus, with six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, there’s plenty of room for your guests to stay over. Read more

Red House Farm – Donington

This is another stunning house where you could have a pool party or a bit of a competition in the games room. The gardens offer the perfect place to enjoy drinks and nibbles, but should the weather take a turn for a worse, there is a magnificent orangery-style conservatory to move into. You could have games galore on these lawns…. pin the tail on the donkey, badminton or croquet perhaps? Guests don’t need to worry about driving home either as with five bedrooms plus a bedroom in the annexe, there’s plenty of space to sleep. Read more

The Village – Orton Longueville

This charming Grade II listed former rectory is set over three floors including 8 bedrooms, and is full of original features including Georgian sash windows, panelling and fireplaces your guests will adore. There is just under an acre of gardens which includes a pretty patio terrace for sitting down with friends and family. At the centre of the house is a splendid open-plan area for cooking, dining and relaxing. A recent orangery extension is filled with natural light from the huge roof lantern, double-height windows, and bi-folding French doors that open out to the terrace, seamlessly blending the interior and outdoor spaces, perfect for summer entertaining.

The Coach House – Colsterworth

This is a stunning converted coach house which provides the perfect accommodation for guests to stay over after your celebrations. There is a two bedroom annex on one side and a spacious home with five bedrooms on the other. Meanwhile, a landscaped garden and a terrace provide the perfect setting for drinks, canapés or even al fresco dining. Although if it’s too cold, you can feel like you are outside when sitting in the kitchen or living room as they both have a wonderful connection with the gardens. For that extra touch, why not cook supper using the ingredients you have grown in your very own vegetable patch? You can then serve a delicious pudding using the fruit from your fruit trees.

For a more intimate gathering, this charming Grade II listed home is ideal. It has an oak framed garden room and a spacious walled garden and patio surrounded by pretty box balls, hedging and topiary, offering the perfect place for entertaining friends and family. Guests will also be in awe of the charm and character that is in abundance everywhere they look. It’s a former post office and offers plenty of light. Read more
