Guestbook Reviews

I recently stayed at the house for a weekend break with 16 friends and I couldn’t recommend highly enough. The house is absolutely gorgeous. It’s huge – and with 16 adults there was plenty of space for everyone. All of the bedrooms are equally gorgeous and the owners were really flexible in arranging bed configurations that worked for us. Steven and Candida were really helpful and welcoming on arrival – and the champagne and chocolates were a really lovely touch! In Winter, the open fires were lovely and the house was super cozy. The pool area was also amazing (closed in November), so I’m sure it would also be great in the summer. We organised local caterers to come in on the Saturday night and cook for us and there’s a huge dining room table which was perfect. We also made arrangements to go racing in Cheltenham which is only about 30 mins from the house. The house is a little hard to find – so make sure you have a satnav! Would defnitely go back and highly recommend for big groups.

My sister and the special ladies in her life stayed at the house for her Hen weekend in October 2012. Having seen the photos and previous reviews, we were prepared for something special, but when we arrived all of our expectations were exceeded! The house is spectacular, with so much space and light; and the attention to detail is a credit to the owners, who were a real pleasure to deal with throughout. Each and every room is tastefully decorated and furnished, with all of the ladies agreeing that they would like the kitchen in their own homes! The extra little touches like slippers, robes and roses on each of the beds, as well as gifts and a card for my sister made us all feel special. Despite the house being incredibly spacious, it also feels cosy, homely and comfortable, which enabled us to unwind and relax. We were lucky enough to be able to use the pool, giving us the feeling that we could have been on holiday in the south of France. We didn’t have much opportunity to explore the local area, but the surrounding countryside and scenery is breathtaking and we could imagine taking long walks, followed by a snooze in front of one of the roaring log fires! We are now all looking for an excuse to return in the not-too-distant future and rest-assured we will be back. Thank you so much Candida and Stephen for helping to make my sister’s Hen weekend truly unforgettable.

Rent this house at least once in your lifetime. Experience the light, space and grandeur of a big old manor house, beautifully refurbished, and with all the modern accessories you could hope for. If you’re a foodie, the kitchen and Aga Stove will delight!! Definitely a 5 star weekend, and the owners are genuinely committed to helping you enjoy their property.

It was the perfect place for me and 15 other mates to celebrate my friend’s stag weekend.
Stephen and Candida were very helpful on our arrival and were great in keeping us up to date leading up to the weekend (through email). The house is huge and there were so many things to do or explore. The heated swimming pool was a big hit with us all, even in October time. Other bits we loved were playing table tennis, eating breakfast in the big dining room and the pool house was good for the stags PowerPoint slide show! We’d definitely recommend this house to anyone celebrating a special occasion.

We stayed here for a 30th birthday celebration with 15 of our friends. It was so perfect. A huge space with enough room for everyone. Lots of things to do both in the house and nearby. Everything was thought about – slippers and robes on each bed, toiletries, a balloon, card and champagne to wish happy birthday, games etc. it was fantastic. On one night we hired a chef to come and cook which was perfect. The dining room is great for a celebration meal and there’s everything you need to make the table look beautiful. The owners were also a pleasure to deal with, really friendly and accommodating. I can’t wait until I have an excuse to go back!

Never in our wildest dreams could we have expected it to be so fantastic. It was simply flawless, perfect amount of space for 18 people, if anything a little large as we kept sneaking off to find new things like the trampoline, the cows in the field near the outdoor seating area, the home cinema/pool room, the outdoor pool, the games room, the loungeroom. Every single room was incredibly well appointed with all anyone could ever need. The little touches really made the stay something extraordinary, the card from the owner wishing my partner a Happy Birthday, the chocolates, fresh cut roses with bathrobes and slippers and towels on every bed, the perfect amount of towels in the pool room.. The list goes on.. A sincere and very heartfelt thank you it was AMAZING!

We took the house for long weekend house party and were not disappointed. The house itself is very elegant with comfortable interiors, we were 15 in total and there were no poor rooms. Great weather allowed us to make the most of the lovely pool and outdoor spaces but I can see it as a great venue in winter too with the fires lit. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you need to self cater. The owners were a delight to deal with and couldn’t be more accomodating.
