  • "Hilltop House is the perfect place for a large get together and the Welcome basket of goodies in the the kitchen was a lovely surprise."

    Michelle (owner) met us on arrival and was available throughout for any questions etc. She’s really friendly and approachable. The house is spacious and even with 20 in the group, we had lots of room including the dogs. Given the lovely weather we made good use of the ample gardens, games room, BBQ and hot-tub. The house does need a few updates e.g. loose handles but they are period features and it was sorted as soon as we got in touch. It’s a shame the Tally-Ho was closed for refurbishment during our stay, so there wasn’t a pub nearby. However Tenbury Wells was only a short drive away with shops, cafes and restaurants. We’d definitely recommend the Peacock Inn and Bahar (Indian)- good food and great service at both places. We definitely enjoyed our stay and would recommend Hilltop House to other potential visitors. Dog friendly house.

  • "What a fantastic stay!"

    From the general wow factor of the place, to the lovely amenities, to the thoughtful additions and gifts from the host, this was a luxurious stay worth every penny. My nearly 3-year old was in love with the play room and still talks about the holiday weeks later. I'll definitely recommend it to others and will hopefully be back one day!

    We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Hilltop and that you all enjoyed the house and its amenities. It was lovely to meet you all and hopefully we will see you again one day! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely holiday at Hilltop House, and there were lots of places to visit with grandchildren and dogs."

    The garden set up and hot tub were great , and it was just as much fun to stay in and BBQ. A farm gate would have been useful at the open side of the house, to keep dogs snd children off the drive.The owners were very friendly and welcoming . The delicious Victoria sponge, hamper and flowers was a nice touch. Teresa Patrick

    The house easily accommodated all 20 in great comfort and everyone had a brilliant time. The house itself is well equipped with plenty of space and we were able to employ outside caterers who were able to use the kitchen with east. Highly recommend for a luxury weekend away.

  • "This house surpassed all expectations and was even more stunning than the photographs."

    It incorporated everything you could possibly want for a congenial and comfortable family holiday. All the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and most have beautiful views across the surrounding countryside. Michelle and her cleaning staff prepare with great care and attention to detail including vases of fresh flowers and candles in the candelabra to complete the ambience. The kitchen is a dream and the aga a joy to cook with when catering for a large group. We had excellent weather and made full use of the hot tub and the barbecue on the terrace. But if you were unlucky enough to encounter standard English downpours there are plenty of distractions inside the house with a plethora of games and puzzles on offer. The poolroom is well equipped with its own kitchen and fridge, and and a most enjoyable evening was spent engaged in a very competitive, if somewhat unprofessional pool tournament for the Tenbury Wells Badger Trophy - named after the stuffed one displayed in the corner. The owners are friendly and helpful and on call should you encounter any problems. We had a wonderful long weekend and would recommend this house to anyone.

    It's a beautiful old farmhouse with all the wonderful quirks you'd expect with it's age and history. The house was enjoyed by 3 generations, from 3 to 70 and everything had been thought of. There owners were very responsive and friendly. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful countryside break for a large party.

  • "The property is absolutely stunning, very well equipped and had everything you could possibly need."

    The views and walks around the property are beautiful. There were a few minor issues within the property that would probably have gone unnoticed if it wasn’t for the high damage deposit (although it is completely understandable why this is in place). Overall, a fabulous time was had by all and we would definitely return.

  • "Our stay at Hilltop House was everything and more of what we had planned to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary."

    We were met by Michelle, and had been in contact with her prior to our arrival and our calls were always met with patience and nothing seemed too difficult. The house was large enough to accommodate our enormous family, but it still felt cosy, a really beautiful, handsome house. The play room was well used by the smaller ones in our group. Well appointed with an impressive dining area with many features to host such a family occasion. The only points we would like to make are that the dog owners felt that a more secure garden to ensure that the pooches didn't wander might be considered. We struggled with the heating as some of the rooms had variable temperatures! Finally, with so many of us using the hot water system, the power showers in the family bathroom, on the top floor was not cooperating, and apparently they could not call it a "power " shower! All in all everyone of us had an amazing time there, thank you!

  • "We have just return from our girlie weekend, to celebrate my retirement, at Hilltop."

    The house and ground were outstanding and from very aspect the views were beautiful. The house itself was thoughtfully laid out and very well equipped. The bedrooms were large and the beds extremely comfortable. We made full use of the hot tub and games room. Our only critism of the facilities was that now it's going dark earlier, the walk across the grass, was hazardous. One of our girls fell over, didn't see the step. Perhaps a gravel path and/or solar lights to guide the way. However this didn't detract from our enjoyment. Can't recommend this house enough. Thank you

    Many thanks for your feedback and for since advising that your friend was carrying things in the dark and she didn't see the change in surfaces, so she walked off the path by accident. We are glad to hear that she bounced back up and the evening carried on without further events and it didn't detract from your enjoyment of this wonderful house. In your review you said that you failed to mention the lovely welcome pack, provided by the owner Michelle. It was delicious. Property Owner

  • "What a brilliant venue for a long-awaited family holiday!"

    The generously proportioned house swallowed up our family of 20 very comfortably. All the bedrooms were nicely presented, the general living spaces were generous and the kitchen was very well equipped for the number of people. Outside the hot tub and the swimming pool were immediate hits with everybody as were the very large well-kept garden and lawn, where we were able to play numerous games. The owners were very helpful and adapted to any requests that we made. They also left us a basket full of local produce which we very much enjoyed. In the evening, after eating around a very lovely dining table many of the party would go to the pool room, which was great fun. The surrounding area is very picturesque and provided some pretty and occasionally challenging walks. Tenbury Wells is an attractive market town and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Thank you from ALL our family
