“Fabulous country retreat.”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Wow! What a fab place to relax with family and friends. Stayed for 3 days to celebrate my dads 70 th birthday. The house is gorgeous and every room has its own magic. Although there was loads of room to lose each other it still had a great homily feel. Had a great morning learning archery followed by the best fish and chips I've ever tasted. We had Somerly cater for my dads birthday meal which was totally delicious, followed by a lovely birthday cake. Janine and her team have thought of everything and are really helpful with anything you may need. All I can say is we have made some unforgettable memories at an amazing venue, thank u so much!

“Crowd pleaser!”
Reviewed February 22, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We held our farewell party/wedding reception at the the Old Hall. Prior to arriving at the property I was quite anxious over what to expect – I'd never booked a holiday rental before, and definitely nothing quite so fancy. I was expecting a shoes-off as soon as we enter the door, wood fires out of action unless with housekeeping supervision and generally a feeling that I shouldn't touch anything in case I broke it and lost our good housekeeping deposit! But it was nothing like that.

Tanya, the housekeeper, was great and instantly put me at ease showing us around the place as well as where to find things (even adding, 'if it's unlocked, have a look!'. We were having quite a lot of family over and a table extension and table cloths were provided, along with a temporary put up bed and cot for my siblings children (which was must appreciated!) In general Janine was very flexible and made our weekend the best it possibly could have been.

Tips: (and this is probably due to my ignorance) but if it's an 'event' you're celebrating, an extra fee is required and the good housekeeping deposit is doubled. Also, the wireless is great, but the phone signal is not – great for whatsapp, less great for calls. Thankfully you are able to make local calls from the landline!

I'm so glad that we were able to be part of your special day. Just to clarify we only charge an additional event fee for wedding related events and larger gatherings. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review ....

Went to the old hall for a 50th Birthday celebration. What a fantastic place, lovely lounge areas, open fires and bathrooms galore. Unlike many large houses the atmosphere inside is homely and warm. Set in lovely grounds and a lovely village I would recommend to anyone wanting a getaway for a large group of family or friends. Great value too. Fantastic!

“Fabulous place for a birthday celebration”

We spent a memorable weekend at The Old Hall in October, celebrating my husband's 60th birthday with our children and old friends. It is a stunning house - immaculately presented and extremely well equipped. Janine was very helpful throughout the booking process and she met us on arrival to show us around, leaving us with lovely cake and chilled champagne. Although the weather was rather dull (who knew damp tennis could be such fun) it really didn't matter - with the log fires burning,and the candlelight, everything looked quite magical. Peter Harrison (Have Knives, Will Travel) made us a wonderful dinner on Saturday, and otherwise we enjoyed the warmth and the challenge of the Aga in the beautiful kitchen. Although the house is so large, it manages to feel remarkable cosy and has a great atmosphere - the weekend went so fast - we really didn't want to leave. It certainly exceeded our expectations and we would love to visit again in the summer and be able to make full use of the huge garden, pool and barbeque. Don't hesitate to visit - you won't be disappointed.
