Rule of six: reduced capacity Landmarks
Following the introduction of the rule of six, we’ve rearranged five of our biggest buildings to accommodate smaller gatherings that don’t breach government guidelines. These Landmarks could now be perfect for holidays with groups of six or fewer. At each building we’ve locked a few doors and, in one instance, rearranged furniture too.

Designed by Edwin Lutyens, Goddards normally sleeps up to 12 people. We’ve reduced the capacity to eight by closing most of the south wing at first floor level. Remaining are two double bedrooms, one twin and two single rooms.
Cavendish Hall, Suffolk
A charming Regency manor house, Cavendish normally sleeps up to 12. We’ve reduced the bed spaces to eight, offering some flexibility for guests, by closing the two twin bedrooms on the second floor. Remaining are three double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. On request, one of these doubles could be swapped for an accessible ground floor twin room.
Wortham Manor, Devon
Wortham, an elegant medieval and Tudor house, normally sleeps up to 15. We’ve reduced the bed spaces to eight by closing three bedrooms at the eastern and western ends of the first floor. Remaining are one double bedroom and two twin rooms on the first floor, together with one twin bedroom on the ground floor. The twin room behind the master bedroom will remain open but the beds unmade.
Silverton Park Stables, Devon
A monumental 19th-century stable block, Silverton normally sleeps up to 14. We’ve closed the west wing, reducing bed spaces to seven. Remaining are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, one twin and one single on the first floor.
Gargunnock House, Stirling
A late-Georgian country house, Gargunnock is our largest property in the UK and normally sleeps up to 16. We’ve reduced capacity to eight. Remaining are one double and one twin on the first floor, plus one double and one twin bedroom at the northern corner of the second floor. Throughout the rest of the house, we’ve rearranged and removed furniture to facilitate these changes.
