There is also a laundry room with access to the garden.

The dressing room features bespoke Farrow and Ball painted joinery with LED lighting, freestanding limestone bath, vaulted ceilings and oak flooring throughout.

Boarstall is on the borders of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. It is famous for its tower, a Grade I listed 14th Century moated gatehouse, built by John de Haudlo and once part of a fortified manor house. There is also a 17th Century duck decoy which is still in working order and one of only four left in the country, both owned by the National Trust.
