Any­one for ten­nis?

Cheshire Life - - The Edit -

BEE­STON HALL

Noth­ing says English Sum­mer quite like don­ning your whites, taking ad­van­tage of a break in the in­evitable rain and knock­ing a few balls around a ten­nis court. Even bet­ter, we say, if the ten­nis court is your own. Which, hap­pily, it would be if you were to own any of the four fol­low­ing prop­er­ties, in­clud­ing the breath­tak­ing Bee­ston Hall (above) just out­side the chic vil­lage of Tar­por­ley. It’s not dif­fi­cult to fit in a ten­nis court when you’re sport­ing just short of nine acres, along with man­i­cured gar­dens, pad­docks, out­build­ings, a small lake and stun­ning views across the Cheshire Plains to­wards Bee­ston and Peck­for­ton Cas­tles. Should you want to put the rac­quet down and re­tire in­doors you’ll find gen­er­ous, beamed re­cep­tion rooms and six bed­rooms, two of which are en­suite (we’d per­son­ally plump for a lake view room). It’s beau­ti­ful of course and grand cer­tainly – but thanks to the exposed beams and good pro­por­tions it doesn’t feel over­whelm­ing. It’s packed with charm, in­clud­ing a farm­house-style kitchen that comes with an Aga set into a brick in­glenook. Al­though you can for­get about that for a while – ev­ery ten­nis fan knows cham­pagne and strawberri­es are the stuff cham­pi­ons are made of.

With Wimbledon dom­i­nat­ing at least half of July, we’re court­ing no­tions of

nets of our own - so we’ve found four prop­er­ties you’ll Love All about
