The rule of six means there’s plenty of space – and handsome discounts – at these grand self-catering properties, all set in superb countryside
There is currently 30% off stays at this six-bedroom Georgian house, which usually sleeps 12. Groups of six won’t be short of space – downstairs is a drawing room with an open fire, a dining room, a kitchen with an Aga, an office, a snug with French doors to the garden, a utility room and a boot room. Up the main staircase are six bedrooms and a family bathroom, with two more bedrooms and a shower room via a second staircase. The sizeable grounds include a walled garden and a barn converted into a games room. Two dogs are welcome. Rennington village has a pub, and it is a few miles to Alnwick, with its castle, and the fishing village of Craster.
