Justin Green, the fourth generation of Greens to live at this enormous Italianate country property, runs the place with his wife, Jenny, in a comfortably homey style - a friendly cat stretched out on the bench of the grand piano, spaniels and children scampering about - but with a deluxe and vaguely bohemian air. A homemade elderflower cordial and vintage radios greet guests in their rooms. Take your coffee in the garden in the morning as Jeremy Green (Justin's father) tends to the flocks of birds. Justin will even arrange a fishing trip with a guide.
