Owners Comments - Eyhurst Farm House can claim its heritage from as far back as the late 14th century when homes were built
around a great hall, solar and a room for servants. Only someone of great wealth and status could afford such a
home and it is very likely that this magnificent building could have witnessed some incredible events, as well as
accommodated some remarkable people, including royalty. Located as it is near Kingswood it is possible that
Eyhurst Farm House was originally a hunting lodge to be used by a medieval monarch and their entourage.
Although the house has been extended throughout the centuries, the last major renovation occurring
around 150 years ago, Eyhurst Farm House continues to exude a sense of history. From the main staircase
and into the upper level where the original beams can still be seen create, for the observer, a tremendous
sense of awe and wonder.
"How many homes can boast of such history or decoration?" asks Reg. "We've always felt privileged to be able
to live here and share our own family history with such a long tradition. It's very much an olde-worlde type
country house with plenty of space, both inside and outdoors, so that entertaining guests is pretty easy. It's a very
welcoming and inviting home."
"Indeed, the very walls themselves instil strength and confidence such as you can only experience with an historic
property. We've spent almost 26 years here and have brought some areas up-to-date and more in tune with a
contemporary lifestyle. We're particularly proud of the swimming pool, the entire area designed so that it imitates
a temple on an island in the Aegean, but most importantly, underground so that there could be no visual impact
upon the house. We've planted formal gardens around the front and side of the house with great success. Both
the garden and the house have a more cohesive look now, grand but not imposing, and the rest of the garden is
more given over for leisure and entertainment. The paddock is now a wild meadow and the lake is the perfect
place to sit by and watch the wildlife all around you. It's the ideal way to leave the cares of the day behind you -
a very tranquil and peaceful home." *
