Overview of Mears Ashby Hall

What Oliver loves…

  • Mears Ashby Hall really is a beautiful building with a great wow factor!
  • It is unique in feeling both intimate and stately, a great party house
  • It boasts a lot of beautiful grounds with lots of fun and outside toys

Set in 11 acres of garden and parkland you'll never get bored. This luxurious manor is a place to enjoy and to have fun. It is suitable for a variety of occasions from a family gathering to a special birthday party.

All this available just 48 minutes train journey from London, can you believe it?

With its privileged location in the highly sought after village of Mears Ashby we expect this exceptional Manor House to appeal to large family groups, special occasions, corporate events as well as those wishing to book a luxurious base for visiting nearby Silverstone, which comes alive (and more) during the 2nd weekend in July.

Mears Ashby Hall is an ideal venue for events and celebrations. An additional 20 day guests are welcome to visit the property for £1000 per day.

The Region

England isn’t just divided into the north and the south – there’s a whole stretch of the country that sits right between them, a wonderful and often overlooked area known as the Midlands. It’s here you’ll find Shakespeare’s birthplace, the rich cultural heritage of the Industrial Revolution and beautiful countryside that’s as wonderful to look at as it is to explore.

To make sure you don’t miss out on any of the great stuff to do in the region, we’ve put together this handy Midlands travel guide – great place to start when you are holidaying in one of our cottages in the Midlands.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Mears Ashby Hall Reviews


  • You have a most beautiful home

    Created on 30/08/2016

    Thank you Clive, we had a wonderful time. You have a most beautiful home. David and Sandra 30 August 2016 (50th birthday celebration).

  • Everyone absolutely loved the Hall

    Created on 22/07/2016

    Hi Clive, We had a great weekend. Thanks so much for being so understanding and helpful. Everyone absolutely loved the Hall. Thanks again. Imran 22 July 2016 (Stag party)

  • It was stunning

    Created on 27/06/2016

    Dear Pam and Clive,

    Thank you so much for lending us your beautiful home for our marriage. It was a great privilege to share it with our children and grandchildren and everything was perfect. We thought it was lovely when we first came, but with all the flowers out and garden at its best in June, it was stunning.

    Charlotte and Millie were outstanding and we really would recommend them to your other guests. Quite apart from their great cooking and organising, they worked so hard and with such a calm presence all weekend.

    We have no doubt that all of this made our families very happy - the children were never short of things to do - from a few weeks old to 15!

    What a very special weekend it was. Ann and Michael 27 June 2016 (Family wedding celebration)

     

  • We are very appreciative of your hospitality

    Dear Pamela,

    I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for letting us use your beautiful home to celebrate my 50th birthday. Everyone had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the weekend.

    We used Terry Fricker for Clay pigeon shooting and Sara Hollowell for catering on the Sunday. Both were excellent and I can thoroughly recommend them for future guests.

    Thank you once again. R Tickner 5 May 2016

  • We couldn't have gone anywhere better.

    Posted by The Ingrams on 25/11/2015

    • This is an extremely belated thank you for letting us stay in your truly delightful home in October.

    Sarah(cook) was a great referral and absolutely wonderful! She really made the weekend and I am so glad that we had her. Aside from being gorgeous the food was also superb and I must make a special mention for the lovely Mr Fricker with the clay pigeon.

    The weather was great and the house superb for our group. We couldn't have gone anywhere better.

    Thanks again Pam - it was a very special family reunion for us and a special weekend.
