A Large Country House Full of Bohemian Extravagance

This is Pearl’s Place. Dating back to the early 1800s, it gleams with vintage finds, hand-finished touches, lace curtains, and many a beaded nod to the roaring twenties. Deep colours and layers of texture flank every window and wall. While antique chandeliers drizzle from ornate ceilings. It’s a rock ‘n’ roll love affair between faded glamour and chic country house style. And as befitting the country home of Pearl Lowe, an entire world of feminine florals and gold gilt, bohemian extravagance, and tea parties on the lawn.

Everything about this luxury Somerset homestay was designed with the hedonist in mind

Just imagine gathering in the seductive dining room for long nights of Champagne and laughter. Or reclining on a thick rug by the open fire. Later you can sink into an enormous, claw-footed bathtub. It’s an all-year-round retreat. In the darker half of the year, the manor’s floral walls keep winter at the door while large, deep sofas beg for crosswords and conversation.

In summer, you can kick off your shoes and salute the sun on dew-kissed grass at sunrise. Or lay a table outside with mismatched tea sets and rich cream teas. Bistro tables invite slow mornings of watching the day wake from slumber. Beyond the patio the impeccable lawn, which slopes down towards the sun and sweeps around the house, is fringed by trees tinkling with wind chimes, and lush technicolour flowerbeds. While all around you can breathe in the heady perfume of a thousand roses tangling over pagodas and stone in the secretive walled garden.

It’s definitely a house for a party (which can be arranged with the owners permission). On the first floor are five double bedrooms, two with super king-size beds and en suite bathrooms, one with a king-size bed, one with a four-poster double bed, and one with a standard double bed. Also on the first floor is a family bathroom and a shower room. In the eaves of the second floor are three further double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. Room for everyone in fact!

From the owner

“Our favourite time of day at Pearl´s Place is during the late afternoon when the sun sets. The house and gardens are bathed in golden sunlight and look truly radiant in the amber glow. It´s just a magical place to be.”
