  • "We enjoyed a wonderful 70th birthday experience thanks to this excellent property."

  • "Was such a lovely weekend and everything was lovely such a great place to go with mix of families as enough different spaces to separate if need to."

    Lovely grounds and lovely walks nearby. We felt like there should have been more instructions for things at the property for things like the oven and hot tub etc. The treehouse was unfortunately broken which was a bit of a disappointment to the kids but didn't affect our stay. Would definitely go back

  • "A great place for a large extended family gathering (we were 22 at a joint golden-wedding and 70th birthday celebration)."

    There were several seating areas for different groups, including a lovely sitting-room with bar for celebratory group gatherings. The huge dining-table in the kitchen-diner easily accommodated all of us, with room for the teens to do their homework at the end! The hot tub was much appreciated by many. We all hope to return.

  • "We had a wonderful 3 nights at Milton Manor 19-22 December 2021."

    The House was decorated beautifully for Christmas, inside and out, and felt warm and welcoming. We had a huge family gathering of several generations, and it surpassed all our expectations. The long table in the kitchen meant we could all eat together, and the games room, sitting rooms and other self contained ground floor accommodation gave us all the space and entertainment we needed. It was fabulous, and both Sykes and the Owners could not have been more helpful and attentive. We would definately book again without any hesitation.

  • "Milton Manor met all our needs for this surprise 60th birthday bash, the location, layout & facilities were amazing."

    Some of the kitchen/cooking utensils weren't as clean as expected and the banquet room floor had signs of dried food, from previous people, under the tables.

    I am truly sorry that you found some of the utensils not clean and signs of dried food from the previous guests, the tables are tricky and often people move them, we often have a short amount of time to turn the house around, but I will make sure this doesn't happen again, also I will ensure the utensils draw is looked into with more details. I hope this did not cause to much trouble as I didn't hear from you during your stay, it sounded like you had a fantastic time! Property Owner

  • "Milton Manor was a fantastic party house for our 27 family guests and the accommodation itself was perfect, versatile and very comfortable and clean."

    It was a wonderful stay and allowed us to celebrate a 90th birthday in real style! Our only criticism was that the property owner was not there when we arrived and due to mobile phone connectivity it was tricky to get hold of her. It would have been good to have a few things explained in person like how to work the hot tub (instructions weren't very clear and it was lukewarm until the end of day 2). It would also have been good to have had a single book with all the instructions in it rather than have them in picture frames dotted around the house which was a bit like being at school with 'do this' and 'don't do that' notices around! The welcome stay book that we did eventually find was in a small dark corridor area so were rather at sea as to how things worked at the start when all our guests were arriving, and being an old building it had some quirks, such as light switches being in unexpected places (the ladies downstairs loo light switch being in the gents downstairs loo, for instance!). Our younger guests and those needing to do a small amount of work from the house found the internet rather slow. But otherwise it was a really wonderful week, and the local lady that cooks lasagna and chicken tray bakes ready for your arrival if you want them was a must-have - they were absolutely delicious and home made! Shops are very close and we ordered a massive Waitrose food delivery for the Friday evening which worked well and kept us going almost for the whole week. We were so sorry to leave at the end!

    I am sorry I can't always meet people as I have to pick up my children from school, some times my husband can get out of work and meet you on arrival. He often does during the winter period to light the fire before your arrival. The hot tub is always up to temperature, however if the cover is left off it when not in use it will get colder. I feel information around the house where needed is better than lots of instructions that when you first arrive that you don't take in, and I am on the end of the phone should there be any other questions. I am always available on WhatsApp and my home number is in the house. We now have BT fibre to the property so the internet is not a problem at all, we can only provide what the area does! All information is in the office (not a dark corridor) which is the link room between the main hall and the games room. Please see house plan. I hope the visit I had with you before your holiday (on a change over) also helped towards your lovely stay and I thank you for your feedback. We We now have BT Property Owner

  • "As a party of 26 adults, a toddler and a baby, we had a fantastic week."

    The facilities are excellent and the house is well equipped and we found nothing lacking. The holiday was to celebrate a special birthday so a drinks lounge and kitchen as well as the main dining kitchen was ideal, as was the prep and washing up area so everyone could help without tripping over anyone else! The house is set within a short travelling distance to many venues and our guests made full use of the area by visiting Wookey Hole, Lyme Regis, Stourhead NT, the Haynes Motor Museum, Street,Glastonbury and much more.

    Thank you for lovely feedback, we work hard to make everyones stay a positive and enjoyable one and welcome feed back Property Owner
