We had a most wonderful time, there was something for everyone. Beautiful large gardens and wonderful swimming pool . There were plenty of rooms for the children to explore and play hide and seek. Much use was used in the childrens room. Son-in-law and Daughter-in-law made great use of the aga.

We booked this amazing house for our mothers 80th birthday and she was blown away. Used to visiting National Trust properties she couldn't believe she could actually sit and relax in the rooms she was entering. Janine was attentive and patient with all our requests while planning the weekend and recommended a fantastic caterer who made the Saturday night celebrations more than we could have hoped for. It is a house with history and more quirks and character than you could imagine but every one made the house even more special. Thank you for letting us experience a real piece of history; I have also never had such a great nights sleep, the beds were a dream. Thank you for giving us all, especially our mother, a weekend she'll never forget.

We absolutely loved our time at The Old Hall. We couldn't have asked for a better home for the group of us. Plenty of great activities and lots of lovely thoughtful touches. We would go again!

Our host Janine was lovely and took the time to show us around on arrival and tell us all about the history of the house, which is fascinating. The house itself was an absolute dream and so stunning. We had the best time celebrating my 30th birthday!

Lots of character! Great for the children to run around. A little dark in places, perhaps!

Fantastic house, beautiful mix of period character and modern touches. Lovely eye for detail, well thought-out for large groups, though difficult for those in the top floor bedroom with all the single beds to access a bathroom easily late at night. We were told not to touch the heating and, used to renting houses, followed instructions. However, there was a problem with the heating and our party spent most of the stay in the kitchen, as the warmest room. Then the Aga started sending out noxious fumes, and someone had to be called in to turn it off. The pool was empty, as it was October, but tennis was fun. Highlights were the fish and chip van, gorgeous embroideries, library, the gardens, plentiful hot water (until the power cut, and hunt for the third fuse box not mentioned in the Information booklet). We were mostly unlucky to have had these problems, but the house itself was wonderful, very well-equipped and a magical setting.

The owners of The Old Hall rent their absolutely adorable house out to groups but the personal touch is akin to staying in a boutique hotel. Ridiculously comfortable beds with heavenly duvets. Weekend stay toiletries, freshly cut flowers and treats. Up to date films and games for kids. They have everything you could possibly need - this is one well-stocked kitchen, pantry, utility room - and in a 17th century house and landscaped grounds we all fell head-over-heels in love with. One of the loveliest places we have ever stayed, the pictures are beautiful yet don't do it justice. The Old Hall made a special weekend all the more so.

We had a wonderful stay at the old hall, we couldn't quite believe it was ours for the weekend when we first pulled up, especially when we spotted the peacocks on the lawn! The house and grounds are steeped in history and character, just beautiful, but the owners have cleverly balanced the traditional living spaces with very comfortable and modernised bedrooms & bathrooms. The kitchen was very well equipped and soon became the main hang out for our group and with multiple living areas, there was so much room to socialise as a group, or take some time to yourself. Feeding the hens, geese and peacocks was a great addition, and I can imagine it being a great focal point for a family trip. The information we were given prior to the trip was fantastic, and we were welcomed by the lovely housekeeper Katy, with cupcakes and champagne! I would thoroughly recommend the house & plan to visit again.

I hired the Old Hall for my 50th birthday celebration. This wonderful property is one of those places you just fall in love with. When I first saw it, I just knew it would make the perfect setting for what I had in mind - spending the weekend with 12 of our friends and family. I could not have chosen a better location. The first thing everybody noticed was of course the sheer beauty of this wonderful house, all the tasteful detail and period charm, all those amazing rooms to be discovered and explored. The next thing was a sense of being at home - it felt like "our" house within no time, not like a rented property, and in the end nobody wanted to leave. We loved the resident poultry! Janine the owner made the whole experience as easy as can be, making sure everything ran smoothly from the first booking enquiry through to our departure, she was helpful, really quick to respond and efficient in dealing with any queries I had. She provided lots of tips and ideas of what to do while staying, as well as anything one might need to know about the house. We just stayed at the house most of the time (it was a very cold weekend, snow on Saturday!) and enjoyed the different sitting rooms and open fireplaces. We did archery with Mark (who was recommended by Janine) and this was a lot of fun for everybody despite the snow. We had some brilliant catering done by Bespoke, who provided a top service and food. A truly amazing weekend that we all will remember for a long time to come. I am already thinking about coming back for a Summer Party.... Can't recommend enough.
