Quirky, unusual and thought provoking, and that's just the style of the library. Aynhoe Park is playful, theatrical and a home to many exuberant characters with guests being surrounded by modern artworks and attention seeking stuffed animals; a bespectacled cheetah vies for top-bidding with a polar bear, a bejewelled unicorn, a hat wearing zebra and a giraffe suspended by balloons in this most memorable and magical of settings. Surrealism personified, this Grade 1 listed country house tells a story of architecture and interior design and today opens its doors as one of the country's finest celebration venues and a veritable antidote to everyday life.
Aynhoe Park is not just another private country house yet does retain many original features such as its grand main staircase and its historical past has not been forgotten. With experiences tailored to suit, the large dining room can host an intimate soirée or a grand banquet, whilst the salon is presented in an inviting Hollywood style with an adjacent private bar and access to the expansive lawns. A feast for the eyes and an ideal venue for evening drinks, the library is a den of irreverence and the light-flooded orangery blends classical sculpture with fantastical creatures for a unique event, party or wedding. At night Aynhoe can take on yet another character, with the games room and snug providing a hideaway for competition in the form of pool or cards, whilst after-hours the staircase leads down to the cellar and 'The Club', a secret subterranean bar and an unusual party venue.
Every one of the bedrooms at Aynhoe is unique, with its own character and style and bathrooms that are spacious and opulent throughout. Guests are able to take their pick from 16 one of a kind bedrooms in the main house and 6 apartments in the East wing which offer 12 further bedrooms. The discrete and professional butler team are on hand to ensure every request is taken care of to ensure a stay at Aynhoe is as memorable as its décor.
