Accommodation

With 13 generously-sized bedrooms, 7 of which can be set up as twin or king-size, and 8 bathrooms, the two upper floors of Ormidale provide flexible and supremely comfortable sleeping accommodation for as many as 35 guests.

Our ground floor reception rooms are just as generous, with drawing room with open fire, dining hall for 24, and games room with recently re-covered full size billiard table. And there’s two TV rooms, a play room for kids, a breakfast room and massive kitchen.
 

With a magnificent drawing room with open fire, a TV room / snug with full Sky, full-size Billiard Room with table football, air hockey and darts, playroom with another Sky TV and the world's largest dolls house, large kitchen with AGA and breakfast bar for 10, and breakfast room seating 16 and with doors leading our to the terrace and the hot tub all on the ground floor - as well as the stunningly impressive dining hall seating 24 - Ormidale has sufficient downstairs accommodation to cater for any large house party. And we are not exactly packing them in like sardines up the stairs.

Ground Floor

Bedroom Accommodation
All but two of our 13 bedrooms have either a basin or an en suite bathroom, so there shouldn't be much queuing necessary even with a big party. Altogether, we have eight bathrooms, plus two separate loos downstairs - and a sauna. We have spent a fortune improving the seventeenth century plumbing, and upgrading the private water supply; and upgrading the fabric of the bathrooms.

We have arranged for a majority of the bedrooms rooms to be flexible, by buying extra-comfortable, sprung single divan beds that can be locked together to form super-kingsize doubles. Two of these have the spare "flipout" divan beds stored underneath. Seven of our rooms are therefore either twins, doubles, or sometimes even triples. Seven of the first floor bedrooms are really nice big generous rooms, with the three combed ceiling attic rooms enjoying the best views in the house but slightly less generously proportioned. The quadruple bunk room is a converted cupboard but really popular with children, and we have a "family room" new for 2014 with double bed, two bunks, and two extra children's beds!

We've gone to town with luxurious deep-fill goose and feather down duvets and pillows, and have sourced gorgeous bed-linen from the Scottish Linen Company. There's summer weight synthetic alternatives for the allergic. Most of our rooms feature antique mahogany chests of drawers, wardrobes, and mirrors.
