SHORT LET ACCOMMODATION
The Marlborough Suite, on the second floor of Hope House. The large airy oak-beamed rooms are furnished with gilt and mirror pieces. Decorated in a restful palette of green silks and gilt furnishings.
Constructed at the same time as Blenheim Palace, Hope House is one of two grand houses in Woodstock (the other being The Bishop's House, Rectory Lane) designed in Vanbrughian style with baroque architecture and it is easy to understand why it has been described as a sister property to the Vanbrugh-designed Blenheim Palace. Historians debate whether it was indeed designed by Vanbrugh himself, as similarities abound: the railings to the front of Hope House and the stone in which they are set are exactly identical to the railings within the grounds at Blenheim palace around the pond and the stone used for construction is from the same source as the palace stone.
The flat roof to the property is constructed with 18mm lead, a very rare example of an original lead roof, with generations of the Money family's footprints carved into the lead, as well as several footprints of the Churchill family.
The bay windows to the front of the house feature etchings in the glass with the names of Money's ancestors and dates of their marriage at St. Mary Magdalene Church Woodstock. Other etchings done by Money ancestors can be seen on windows in rooms throughout the house, including three in the Blenheim suite.
Situated on the corner of Oxford Street and Hensington Road, Woodstock, the group of buildings owned by the influential Money family were collectively known as 'Money Corner' and appear as such in early maps of Woodstock.
This suite is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day's sightseeing.
