Wallingford Homestead

Wallingford is a seriously magical place powered by a small team of professional foodies. A grand manor built in the 1800s, it offers innovative food and modern conveniences while preserving all the olde world integrity of its architecture. Ensconced in lush gardens filled with birdlife, Wallingford is surrounded by the rolling hills of the countryside and wide-open spaces that allude to small scale farming. Exclusive use of Wallingford allows for the full run of the house including the main sitting room with open fire, the hello room with tea and coffee making facilities accompanied by daily baked cakes, the dining and conference rooms, extensive gardens and the pool/ pool entertaining area. We have 10 bedrooms in total with 6 bathrooms so house configuration can be family friendly with share bathrooms or made up as 5 en-suite rooms.

The food Experience at Wallingford:

When staying for two evenings on the Luxe package,  you have the days to yourself to explore wild beaches, the incandescent countryside and expressive oceans while being greeted in the evening with the degustation menu on one night of your stay alternated with a table d’hôte menu for the other evening where you indulge in 4 / 5 petite plates before choosing a shared main that is served with accompaniments, completed by a sweet treat. Each morning the day begins with your fast being broken by house baked break, a hot and cold offering prepared a la minute by the chef.
