“fabulous venue - what a weekend”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I was looking for a place to celebrate my 50th birthday with friends and family, and I picked a winner. The accommodation was extremely spacious, the bedrooms comfortable and airy, and the games room was a great bonus. We had so much fun playing pool, table tennis, bar football, and at times it got quite competitive. Thank you Richard for such a wonderful place..
For an alternative place to eat, I would recommend the quirky White Horse. This pub does have a small kitchen, and whilst the meals were staggered, the food was home-cooked and lovely. We all felt very welcome, and made full use of the piano...oh yes, we provided entertainment for the locals..

“Fantastic Stay!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Stayed here with a large grou of ladies for a friends hen do. As on of the bridesmaids Richard was very quick to reply to get things organised! The house was spacious for all 32 of us. The rooms were clean and very well equipped. The kitchen was fantanstic and played a vital role in allowing us to prepare for a mammoth afternoon tea which was spectacular in the large dining room. The games room played host to sumo wrestler suits which was used by all ages. The garden allowed us to have a bouncy castle - although the weather wasn't on our side for the whole weekend. Richard was fantastic in allowing us to have these on site. The whole party loved the house very much so and were overwhelmed over the amount of space there's now talk of making it an annual event. Went to the White Horse pub on one of the evenings where they catered for us all and the food was fab for the price we paid. We even forgot we were 10 minutes from home!!! Highly recommend this place for family events, & large groups of friends who want a weekend getaway. I'm sure in the summer a BBQ and a game of rounders would be fantastic in the garden. Thanks to Richard and pauline for all your help in making a memorable weekend so brilliant for so many people including the bride to be most importantly.

Stayed here with my family of 18 last week. Property has ensuite Rooms which is great. Gardens lovely and enclosed with space for sports game, level ground. Kids loved the sports room which led out onto the garden so always knew where the kids would be. Sports room had table tennis, pool , air hockey and table football. Kitchen had plenty of pots and pans and nice room off the kitchen to dine each night that seated us all. You can hire bikes at the reservoir which you can cycle around, 8 miles. Altogether a great holiday!
