Sunrise House is a family home discovered down a private drive and is set in 10 acres. It is the ideal place for chilled hen parties, family reunions or a special celebration. The nearby walks are glorious and within 2 miles there is an excellent pub in Compton Basset.
The house has comfortable living spaces including a huge sitting room with baby grand piano, several sofa suites, open fire and doors opening out onto the garden.
The library can be used as a place to escape the hubbub of a large gathering. The large Snug has comfy seating for watching TV. There is a separate dining room which if needed can seat up to 18 guests by adding an extra table.
If you don't wish to cook there are caterers at hand to drop off a welcome meal or to enable you to dine in style.
There are 5 bedrooms; 2 of which are ensuite and there is a family bathroom too and down stairs cloakroom.
The nearby village of Compton Basset has a great pub which is recommended by the owners and if you are feeling flush try Rick Stein's restaurant in Marlborough.

Catherine stayed 19th July 2019: "We stayed here as a group of 15 and the house accommodated us extremely well. We had a fab weekend celebrating two birthdays and luckily the good weather meant we were able to make use of the tennis court and the BBQ. The house was spacious and very comfortable, and we felt extremely welcome and able to relax in Ally's home. There was also really good communication from the host and the freshly baked cake upon arrival was a lovely touch. Would definitely return to Sunrise House again!"
