| Bevill House stands on the site of the battle camp of the Battle of Stamford Hill (1643), the first significant victory for the Royalist army in the Civil War. The house itself, however, is of quite recent origin having been built in the 1920s. A large part of the land belonging to the house is an Iron Age fortification, a listed ancient monument which was used by the Roundhead army as an overnight camp on the eve of the battle.|
A commemorative monument, built into the wall of the fortification, is the focus of a service of remembrance each year in which the fallen of both armies are remembered.
| The letting apartment is on two floors at the East side of the building with views over the gardens and to the sea about a mile away. There are three bedrooms and bath/shower room upstairs and living room, kitchen and second WC downstairs. Outside is a sunny patio area with barbeque and picnic table and an outbuilding houses table tennis and table football.
The apartment has its own entrance and is separated from the rest of the house by doors in the upper and lower hallways. Electricity, heating and bedding are included in the price, but guests are requested to bring their own towels. |
Family groups and non smokers are preferred and there is a no smoking policy in the house.
