We had a wonderful 50th Birthday party for a range of family and friends, from baby and toddler to grandparents. The bedlinen is lovely, the dining room nice - large enough for 24 or us. Everything was spotless, we will definitely visit again. Thanks.

Mrs Tidd, High Wycombe, February 2014

The accommodation was excellent, the kitchen was fully equipped to cater for a very large party and the pool was amazing - much bigger than expected! The children were fully occupied between the pool, the game room and their own lounge, leaving the adults able to fully relax and enjoy the weekend. Superb accommodation and we will be coming back!

Mrs Bowdler, Chester, February 2014

What a fabulous house, just perfect for my 50th birthday celebrations with my family. The spa was excellent. We would definetely book to come back here again.

Mrs Dawson, Alcester, February 2014

We loved the way we were made to feel so comfortable & welcome at The Croft. We were able to treat the house as our own which was fantastic for my celebratory 50th birthday. I had invited 20 family & friends and everyone has come away relaxed and with great memories. The owner and housekeeper were fantastic; should we need to know anything they were at the end of the phone. The house is beautiful with a fantastic kitchen which made catering for so many a pleasure. The icing on the cake has to be the wonderful swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna which were all kept wonderfully clean and excellent condition and the games room kept the men occupied for hours!!
