“HAGG HALL WAS ALL IT SAID IT WOULD BE AND 200% BETTER !!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our large and varied party of 17 enjoyed all aspects of the property, especially the children and the warm pool. Adults could make up for this in the hot tub in the evening when tthe kids were in bed ! The quirky nature of the rooms with clutter of all types all added to the atmoshere and the imitation ''tinder boxes' were most surprising. By the Saturday evening we had decided to book the property for next year it really was that good. Please be aware there are friendly dogs on the site.

“A really special place to spend a weekend with friends”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed here for my hen do. The house is amazing. The weather was beautiful so we spent a lot of time in the garden but it wouldn't have mattered if it had rained because the pool and hot tub would have kept us occupied! The facilities were great although we ran out of hot water at one point so a couple of us had cold showers. This was a minor issue though and not enough to mark the rating down. The owner was friendly and checked we had everything we needed. I can't recommend this place enough, I would definitely go again. Happy happy customer!!!

“A big welcome for big families”
Reviewed 13 June 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed over Easter weekend, with 8 adults and 7 kids of various ages - and the house was spot on. The owner had worked really hard to get the pool ready ahead of schedule, and the kids absolutely loved it.

The house itself, as another reviewer mentioned, is actually much better than the pictures suggest; quirky, definitely, but with lots of authentic charm rather than chintziness. The layout is quite odd, so you might want to check that before booking for your group (a floorplan on the website would help).

The kitchen was really well equipped, which made cooking for 15 pretty easy, with plenty of lovely space for everyone to eat together in either the dining room or conservatory.

There were lots of little things that made the whole weekend work too - like a load of fluffy towels for bathrooms and pool, Sky Sports in the lounge, and plenty of heat and hot water.

All in all, everything we expected and wanted from a big house - a great weekend.

“Could not have asked for more!!”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed here for a week for my parent's Golden Wedding Anniversary and have to say what a wonderful house it is. Mel made us very welcome and pointed out where everything was, including light switches, and said that for the next week to treat the house like our own home. (Which we did!!)

The house was full of character and we loved the layout of the property. Plenty of room for the 14 of us there, with lots of extras, including wine in the bedrooms, toiletries in the bathroom, plenty of towels for the swimming pool, which by the way, was fantastic - everyone, from my 7 year old neice to my 70 year old mother, had a great time in the pool.

We used Creative Chef (a local outside caterer) to come in the wonderful kitchen to cook for us, there was plenty of room for him to do so.

If you want clean, stainless steel, minimalistic rooms, then this place isn't for you, but we absolutely loved it and loved the character, and higgledy-piggledy layout and everything else.

Thanks very much Mel, I am sure we will be seeing you again.

“Some amazing elements, some not”

This house is a gorgeous property with lots of character. If you like that kind of thing you'll love this place. The pool and hot tub are lovely and give the place a spa like feel. The kitchen is also perfect for the house size, with an agar and plenty of space and equipment for cooking for large parties. One of the previous reviews mentions the owner of the place which prepared me for constant intrusion. Although he wasn't as bad as the previous review suggests he did 'pop in' a few more times than necessary. My tip to him would be to check with the party on arrival and then on departure. Not twice each day! The only other issue I found was that light switches were hard to find and not practical (the light for the bathroom and bedroom were on the same loop, so a bathroom trip in the middle of the night meant turning the bedroom light on too). Fortunately we were not there in winter so it wasn't such an issue.

“A Great House for a Get Together with Some Fantastic Facilities”
Reviewed 6 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

Hagg Hill Hall is an amazing house with lots of space and character. We stayed for our annual get together with old school friends and there were 17 of us including 9 children but even so we had more than enough space for living and playing. The recent addition of the pool and hot tub made it really special and needless to say we spent a lot of time in them! The garden and play field were great too and the outdoor pool table was also put to good use. A few things in the house needed a bit of maintenance but that's perhaps to be expected given the age of the property and how frequently its used. The bedrooms were all beautifully furnished, although they didn't all have TVs in as stated on the website. Another shower or two would also have been very useful as there are only two plus one by the pool but all these were clean and powerful. The owner had included lots of extras to make guests feel welcome such as wine and water in the rooms, loads of fluffy towels, toiletries, dishwashing tablets etc. Overall we were very pleased with our wonderful holiday and intend to re-book for next year!
