The most unique romantic hideaway. This Grade 11 Listed Elizabethan Lincolnshire longhouse once provided the ale for the stately Priory House, the largest Grade 11 Listed Geogeian house in Long Bennington, once on the main route to Scotland from London.

Enter through your own conservatory where you can breakfast overlooking a tree filled garden and the old gypsy caravan, actually a showman's trailer built in 1912.

An ancient door opens to reveal a "wow" stage set interior. Lights, camera! Always a surprise.

The spacious oak beamed lounge combines the comfort of the modern feather filled sofas with antique furniture and ethnic art. Large Kilims soften the medieval style terracotta floor. An antique French chandelier illuminates the dining table and leopardskin curtains provide extra warmth and privacy.

The inglnook features a large log burner and there is a T.V. don't forget to bring your favourite CD's and tapes. An intricately carved padouk wood screen covers one wall, brought back from India by the explorer and mystic writer Sir Francis Younghusband at the turn of the last century.

A cast iron Victorian spiral staircase takes you to the galleried bedroom, luxuriate in the embroidered bed linen and cosy duvet.

The designer built kitchen in cream, pink and gold reflects the oriental theme, as well as essential equipment there are of course Indian wall hangings.

The shower room features the original decorated basin installed last century but up to the minute shower unit and instant hot water.

It was first renovated in the early 1900's by Sir Francis Younghusband. He led the British army into Lhlasa, Tibet, in 1904. He was a famous mystic as well as an adventurer and explorer, and was the author of many mystic books. One is on the sanctity of marriage, which is poignantly relevant to to the house now as we have a license to hold civil weddings and ceremonies.

He brought an intricately carved padouk wood screen back from Karachi and installed it on the partition between the grand hall and the kitchen and shower room. Over it is the Mistral's Gallery bedroom.
