Bailiffscourt Hotel and Country Club
Hotel and country club, formerly large country house. Built between
1931 and 1935 by Amyas Phillips an 'antiquarian' rather than architect
for Lord and Lady Moyne. Built in late Medieval Cotswold style entirely
out of salvaged materials from old buildings in many different parts of
the country. Built of Somerset limestone with Horsham stone slate roof
and stone chimneystacks. Quadrangular plan. Entrance front of 2
storeys with stone round-headed windows to 1st floor and ground floor
double window with trefoliated head. Large buttresses and large
external stone stack. Between these two is a 2-light oak window rescued
from a derelict building near Muchelney Abbey. The entrance archway was
once part of Holditch Priory and the C15 oak door to the entrance hall
originally belonged to South Wanborough Church. Left side return has
double cusped windows to gable and a series of cambered windows and
buttresses. Rear elevation is L shaped with 2, 3 & 4-light mullioned
windows with leaded lights and 4 external chimneystacks. Arched door-
case with 4 plank door. Right side contains domestic quarters. This is
of chequerwork flint and stone with 2 gables and mullioned windows.
Return has 3-light mullioned windows and reused round-headed window.
Room to right of entance hall has deeply chamfered ceiling and tall
window seat. Large L-shaped Dining Room has very fine roll-moulded
ceiling and oak screen. 4 centred arched stone fireplace in Dining Room
was moved from a building in Hitchin being destroyed by the local
authority. Principal bed chamber on 1st floor has crown post roof with
4 crownposts, 2 part of a slavaged roof and 2 replicas by Amyas
Phillips. There are numerous other examples of reused stone 4 centred
archways, C16 and C17 stone fireplaces and screens, though some screens
are probably made up from old floorboards. This is the foremost example
of the craze in the Inter War period of new houses made from old
(See Clive Aslet "The Last Country Homes" p172 - 181.B.O.E. Sussex pp97-98).
