We have just finished re-furbishing one of the original family bedrooms, creating a new guest bedroom, The French Room, with a beautiful view of the front gardens and lime tree avenue!
This facelift has been planned for many months now, and with the wedding season fast approaching it was time to crack on and put all the ideas into practice. One of the key features of the bedroom had always been the decorative fireplace with its ornate detailing and porcelain tiles. To tie-in with the fireplace we upholstered a dressing stool, chair and chest in matching fabric. Above the bed we have added the stunning Corona, with regal drapes to match the curtains.
We now have a total of nine guest bedrooms, including the bridal suite, available for hire.
More Photographs of The French Room can be seen on our Facebook Page.

Photographer Kim Hawkins was recently at Poundon House for the wedding of Ryan & Bryony. We really love these pictures, both the engagement shoot and the day itself. Kim ventures into areas of the garden not normally explored. Great pictures – see them here… http://www.kimhawkins.co.uk/blog/2011/10/poundon-house-ryan-and-bryonys-stunning-indianenglish-wedding/
Just wanted to say a big thank you to all who helped create a fantastic open day at Poundon, and also thank you to all who turned up to share the day with us, both new couples looking around with us for the first time and also to couples getting married here next year. I hope that it all proved useful in planning for the big day – and that you gained good advise from Ginny Lawson for flowers, and enjoyed Cupcakes by Claire.
Did we say we have a large collection of vintage china you can use – if you are inspired by vintage, then afternoon tea served on vintage china completes the look. Poundon House is the perfect setting for a country house wedding. Make a weekend of it…
The hard work in the gardens has paid off with the gardens being featured in the latest issue of Bucks and Berks Magazine in their article ‘Glorious Gardens’.
We’re delighted that the gardens were chosen to feature in the July issue of Bucks and Berks Magazine, for their article Glorious Gardens.

We are all now getting very excited for the Wedding Fayre – the gardens are looking beautiful, the marquee is going up, and we have had a fantastic response from editors, brides, suppliers, writers – everyone! It’s certainly going to be a brilliant day!
The weather’s starting to pick up now with its come a new burst of life to everyone here at Poundon.
Inside we’ve been going round with a bucket of soapy water and tin of paint, giving the place a bit of a touch up where it’s needed.
In the gardens we’ve swapped the rakes for lawn mowers and are busy keeping on top of things. Bunches of daffodils have sprouted along the lime tree avenue and look simply fantastic. We’ll soon be busy planting in the terrace gardens ourselves.
The weekends are starting to become busier with more and more couples booked in for viewings and looking around the house and gardens.
The local Parish of churches recently used a few rooms in the house for a morning of activities so it was nice to lend a hand to the local community.
