Nestled on a 4,000-acre estate in the English countryside, Farleigh Wallop is a Georgian-style home with a history that dates back to the 15th century. Owned by the Wallop family since its construction, the 11-bedroom regal home has entertained the likes of Queen Elizabeth I and Lord Byron. And now, the home is available to the public for rent for the very first time this summer.
The 14,000-square-foot home is decorated with floral wallpaper, antique chandeliers, stone fireplaces, and portraits of the Wallop family. Complimentary amenities include concierge service; laundry and pressing facilities; babysitting services; estate and garden tours; a tennis court; a heated swimming pool; and a croquet lawn. Michelin-starred chefs, and helicopter and limousine transfers, are also available. During their stay, guests can choose from a long list of such activities as horseback riding, fly fishing, cooking lessons, shooting, golfing, and visiting local pubs. The estate starts at around $20,800 for a two-night stay, including breakfast, afternoon tea, and dinner. (farleighwallop.com)
