“Fantastic stay at a showstopper venue!”
Reviewed 20 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Tara made our stay so enjoyable and easy from the get go. It is the little things that make Hill House have the wow factor. Everyone commented on how great the place was. They have thought of everything and this just made our stay so much more enjoyable. Would recommend to stay without hesitation. It has so much to do that it works for big groups/families with or without kids.

Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

“Beyond our expectations ... Off the clock amazing!”
Reviewed 3 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Darren and Tara are the perfect hosts and this made our weekend to celebrate my partners 40th that more special. Our group was unanimous that the house was amazing and catered for everything perfectly. The house is beautifully decorated with fantastic artwork, kitchen is completely decked out and has a range of glassware and blenders for all your cocktail needs. The dining room was brilliant for our group dinners. The games room was so much fun too. We all would totally recommend hill house for your holiday.

“The actual was as fantastic as the anticipation”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Having looked forward to our stay at Hill House for so long I was delighted that it lived up to all the reviews I read. We stayed for a 3 night weekend to celebrate my 50th birthday and had a magical time.
The team looked after us with warmth and professionalism from the very first emails to the moment we left.
Hill House is quirky yet sophisticated, so much thought has gone into facilities and extras that are provided. Each room has its own personality whether you want to party, chill, dine in style or play in the fab games room, there is something for everyone.
The Bespoke dining is a must as is the pizza lunch and Bills fish is the best I've ever tasted ,if you have time a visit to the country club well worth while, and the village club very friendly.
We were a party of adults who had a memorable weekend and would love to return.

“Beyond expectation!”
Reviewed 2 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a 50th and 30th birthday celebration at Hill House over a weekend in January and the whole group agreed that it was a memorable experience and one we would love to repeat. Darren, Tara and the team were so helpful in ensuring that the weekend was planned and delivered without a hitch.
From the moment we drove up on the Friday evening and saw the house lit up to the morning we left, we could not have hoped for a better celebratory weekend.
We had Bill's fish and chips on the Friday (yummy), Bespoke dining and cocktails on the Saturday (brilliant)! and archery and treatments during our stay (great). We also made use of the golf and leisure facilities at Dunston Hall and the pizza oven on Sunday night.
We were a family party with age ranges from 18months to mid 50s and were all agreed that there was something for everyone.
The house is beautiful and the Bose sound throughout was loved by all. The games room was a bonus as was the tennis court. We took lots of games with us, but there are games and a playstation to keep you amused.
We would definitely go back and would book for longer next time as the whole party were reluctant to leave.
We had NN Visuals come in to do a photo shoot before the Bespoke dining experience on Saturday night as we wanted a reminder of our weekend and now we have some lovely photos to remind us of a fantastic weekend.

“OMG - I want this house !!”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

What a stunning party house - we rented the house from Darren over the New Year 29th Dec - 3rd Jan ... i cannot speak highly enough of Hill House. When we arrived the lovely Tara showed us around and could not be more accomodating - lovely lady and asset to be associated with Hill House. After we cracked open the welcoming Champagne, we continued to party, for 5 days. The B&O entertainment system around the whole house is stunning, the art adorning most walls is phenomenal, the space and condition is spectacular, the games room is lush, the crocquet on the lawn was brilliant, having possibiity to use Dunston Hall facilities great, Not forgetting those gorgeous and spell binding roaring fireplaces. Even the visitors book is filled with amazing reviews - not one bad one. We will definately be back !

“a wonderful house for Christmas”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Having such a large extended family we always rent a large property for Christmas. Hill House has to be our favourite one yet ! From the lovely warm introduction from Tara (homemade cakes and champagne) the wonderful decorations and Christmas trees,even putting away all the food delivery ! everything had been thought of. A wonderfully comfortable house with open log fires, a great family kitchen and of course the games room where we spent many an hour playing pool and air hockey. The modern art we loved and it works really well in such a beautiful old property. We loved every minute of our stay.

“A Wonderful Winter Weekend”
Reviewed 17 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed at Hill House for a long weekend from the 28th November to the 1st of December for a very special occasion with a group of girlfriends. I am so glad that I picked this place over the others I was considering as it really does have the 'Wow!' factor and the staff made us all feel incredibly welcome and created a really special experience.

The process of booking and arranging the weekend was incredibly smooth due to prompt responses from Darren and timely invitations to review the in-house dining experience and many other treats on offer at the house.

I would thoroughly recommend the Bespoke in-house dining experience, a wonderful evening was put on for us full of surprises that I won't give too much away about! We also had Yolande with us for 3 hours on the Saturday and enjoyed some fabulous treatments.

The house, although large, is very cosy in the winter and there is plenty of surrounding countryside to enjoy on the doorstep. We walked to the village of Stoke Holy Cross on the Sunday which is roughly 3 miles away and had a very enjoyable lunch at The Wildebeest pub.

One point to note! If you do intend to do your own cooking, bring oils & condiments etc as the only cupboard ingredients there are salt and pepper.

Thanks for a truly fab weekend.
