Caynham Court is a large, relaxed, family home providing bed and breakfast. We are not a hotel. Caynham Court has been a manor house since 1086. Since then, it has gone through many changes and re-modelling phases. The visible building mostly dates from 1790 with extensions in 1851 but the older house is hidden within the facade. Today it is a large, informal country retreat, ideal for shooting parties, walkers, cyclists and other outdoors enthusiasts. Furniture is practical and un-fussy. We welcome dogs and muddy boots. Rooms vary in size but all have new en-suite shower rooms (added in 2018) and some have a bath too. Decor is eclectic, with big sofas and old taxidermy mingling with newly-commissioned artworks. The gardens and grounds run to almost five acres with lots of footpaths over the old parkland and up to Caynham Camp; an Iron Age fort. We are not a hotel, there is no mini-bar or TV in the room; we offer a house in the country where our guests stay, as if they were visiting friends.
