  • "A beautiful Manor House with many facilities to use during the stay."

    Would have hoped for bigger cooking ware to use in the kitchen considering the manor accommodates for a large number of people - larger pots would have been useful. The electric hob was a little temperamental to use but did the job. Apart from that, we were very happy with our stay and would love to return again in the summer as we didn’t get a chance to make use of the garden as it was raining most of the time during our stay. All in all a beautiful Manor House and we had a lovely time!

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Manor House."

    There were ten of us between the ages of 14 and 87. The house was warm and comfortable, the games room and hot tub were particularly popular and the large kitchen diner was a very good room to socialise in. There were a a couple of discrepancies in the listing information as there isn't a twin bedded room upstairs and also there was no coffee machine or cafetiere in the kitchen.

  • "Had a fabulous time at the Manor House."

    The place was clean and cosy, exactly as described and perfect for our party of 8. It's our second booking of the property and it met our needs just as well as our first visit. Already planning our next booking here next year!

  • "Our big extended family group of twelve enjoyed this spacious house with plenty to explore in the area, good local facilities and pleasants walks from the property despite the sometimes inclement weather during our stay."

    We appreciated the number of large reception rooms, secluded gardens, ample parking, games room, hot tub and huge dining kitchen. We had a lovely week together but feel we should point out things we experienced that could be useful. It's a shame that one doublebedded room is so small and that there is neither chair nor small table in most bedrooms. Cooking appliances (Esse range, oven/micro combo, 2-ring induction hob) meant a lot of forward planning and took some getting used to. A few bigger pans and dishes would be handy too when trying to feed twelve hungry mouths. Shower areas would benefit from some shelf storage ( particularly in the wet room). Happily a shower drain, blocked on our arrival, ( and which must have been noticed by the cleaners) was promptly sorted by the efficient and friendly maintenance team. There are a couple of discrepancies in the listing of which the owner is now aware. (Finally, although we've stayed in many large houses over the years, the 5 p.m key collection and then 9 a.m departure times were a shock, especially since we rushed everyone, met the early call, but were chatting in the carpark until after 9:30 a.m on the last day and the housekeeping team had still to arrive... ). Hope that's useful. It's a great place to stay with very helpful hosts.

  • "The Manor House was perfect for our stay, we had 9 adult and 1 baby, they provided us with a cot as well."

    all rooms were very spacious with enough cupboard space for 2 ppl in each room. the directions were spot on, so easy to find the manor house. Not the best place to cook dinner etc but i think that was because we didnt understand the cooker properly. and only 1 small issue, the bathroom door downstairs didnt lock, but otherwise, everything was perfect for family holidays!

    We just sent everyone home and are having a moment to breathe and reflect. We very much enjoyed the house and the grounds were spectacular. Unfortunately one of our granddaughters broke a resin bunny and we are happy to replace. Many thanks for sharing your home with us and most especially for the early check in.

  • "Great house."

    Lots of room, quiet but near facilities including a lovely pub/restaurant and comfortable furnishings. Best to use Google Earth or similar to "spot" the lane entrances but then access very easy and parking obvious. Lovely gardens. We found it ideal for our family gathering.

  • "Beautiful grounds and house."

    Great place to stay for a large family gathering. The snooker table was well used due to the terrible weather and there was plenty of televisions to keep the children and older family members entertained. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, the owner very quickly came round after a message was sent to inform him of a lack of wine glasses which was much appreciated. Lovely pub nearby serving excellent food, well worth a visit and only a five minute walk.

  • "Wonderful property, very comfortable and excellent facilities."

    We had a few issues which, unfortunately, could not be resolved. Heating in upstairs bathroom not working which made for a very cold room especially in winter. There was water running down the inside of a bedroom window presumably caused by failing mortar which I made manager aware of so it doesn’t do more damage to a lovely building. I hope the manual for the hob is found too, we managed to get it working once we realised it was an induction hob but it is useful to know!

    Hi Corrinne, Thankyou very much for your feedback, and we are glad you had a lovely time! We were not aware of the heating problems; however, we have had an engineer to the property and the heating system is now fully up and running as it should! We will investigate the issue of the leak in the upstairs bedroom to see what the cause is, and we will obtain a new manual for the hob. We are very grateful for the feedback as we are very proud of The Manor House, and we want to make sure its looked after and at its best for each guest that stays there! Kind Regards The Owner.

  • "The Manor House was a great place for our large family stay."

    Lots of space and lovely and warm. The large kitchen area was perfect for family gatherings round the table. The garden and hot tub were a great plus but we were a bit disappointed when the gardener arrived unannounced on our first morning and then produced a notice saying please keep off the grass, quite difficult when we had 4 young children with us and the large garden was a reason we had chosen the property! This was not made clear in the property description or house rules! Some further appliance instructions would also have been helpful for using the cooker and to have been able to use the coffee machine and jacuzzi bath would also have been a bonus! Other than that we were happy with our stay thank you.

  • "After much searching and researching of the area we booked the house for a family getaway/birthday celebration."

    The house had everything we wanted/needed for our weekend. However, on arrival it massively surpassed all expectations...what a gem!! From the moment we arrived we were all overwhelmed by the beauty of the area and the quality of the house! It has more space than you will ever need, so wonderfully warm and inviting. The kitchen quickly became our favourite place, so social and well equipped and having the hot tub just outside was fantastic. The games room and conservatory were well used too...fabulous addition to the house. If we were to nit pick, we would offer a recommendation to look at the plugs in both baths and kitchen sink, as none of them held water very well, I stress this is a recommendation not a critisum as it in no way effective our stay. We are already looking at coming back we loved it that much. The Stanhill Pub and Kitchen is also definitely worth a visit, food was absolutely delicious and it's just a short walk away from the house.

  • "Beautiful property but holiday marred by several easily rectifiable faults."

    Access directions could be improved. On arrival no toilet rolls,no scourer, no washing up bowl. Very few wine glasses. Information book lacked significant instruction information for central heating, coffee machine dishwasher etc. Ground floor shared bathroom/toilet could not be locked. some cleaning issues e.g coffee dregs left in coffee machine many crumbs etc under kitchen chairs/sofa, one bathroom waste bin full.

    Hi Anne, Thank you for your feedback and we're very glad you enjoyed your stay. All the items mentioned were delivered to you during the meet and greet, unfortunately, at times we do occasionally run out of stock items and we have to purchase more. As such, we ensured you had all the relevant items and plenty of them for the duration of your stay. The central heating system was fully labbelled and a demonstration was given during the meet and greet, and if any additional tuition was needed our manager as explained was too hand if required. all other instruction manuals if not in the pack are available on request, however, the majority of items are self-explanatory. The "Coffee Dregs" in the coffee machine are because as explained this item of equipment has failed and as we are not replacing it, we are awaiting a quiet period to have a joiner come in to return the space back into storage. As regards the other cleaning items, I will ensure the cleaning staff are made aware, but please do note this is a substantial property and although a lot of care is put into making the house immaculate for your stay occasionally people do miss things. Kind Regards, The Owner. Property Owner

  • "Owners were extremely helpful and friendly."

    I did share with them that the description clearly stated a twin room without ensuite that we'd earmarked for 2 children who in fact had to share a double bed...not ideal. We'd have brought a futon if we'd known. One other minor quibble...the kettle is so small! With 9 adults all wanting a cup of tea at the same time we had to take turns and wait for multiple boils which seems unnecessary as bigger kettles are available. But otherwise it was an idyllic holiday and we loved the period features and gorgeous gardens. It was a very special time for our whole family, thank you very much!!

  • "What a place!"

    It's huge and has all the facilities you might want. There are two lounges which we never used since we spent all our time in the conservatory/games room. This became our party room. Kitchen is equipped with everything you might conceivably want, there are more tvs than you'll ever need, great private hot tub and lovely gardens. All the bedrooms are of ample size and bedding is lovely and clean. Only two tiny negatives. The built in coffee machine didn't work, probably because previous guests hadn't cleaned it. My brother in law spent two and a half hours cleaning it out and brought it back to life. Also the downstairs spa bath doesn't function. Should mention the Stanhill Bar and Kitchen which is just staggering distance away. Good pub with a large dining area and the food is to die for. Would recommend booking if you want to eat, especially for larger groups. So to sum up, had a week here for my wife's birthday and would thoroughly recommend it for a group holiday.

  • "We stayed at the Manor House as part of a large family group to celebrate a 50th birthday and would definitely recommend the property."

    It is a lovely large house which has more than enough space for a large group, including two lounge/ sitting rooms for anyone wanting to watch tv or enjoy some quiet time. The photographs do not really do the property justice. The snooker room and the hot tub were great additions and got much use by our group and the large kitchen / dining area is great for dining and socialising. The owners were very helpful when responding to questions before we arrived at the property and came out extremely quickly to resolve an issue with the coffee machine. The only slight issues/ possible improvements I would highlight were that one of the mattresses on one of the zip linked beds was a little uncomfortable and more detailed instructions for the range cooker, filling the coffee machine with water and opening the velux windows in the kitchen would be very useful. Possibly more storage / shelving in some of the bathrooms for wash bags / toiletries etc would also be useful as would a dressing table in the lovely large main bedroom. But overall we have a fantastic time at Manor House and would recommend to any large groups looking for somewhere to stay.

    Cleanliness needs some attention, as in the fire had not been cleaned out from previous guests, floors hadn't been cleaned properly and windows dirty however beds, towels and everything else perfect. Would of been nice to have had a few tablets for dishwasher / washing machine, logs for fire and more tea towels. On the whole fabulous beautiful home which is perfect for a group of people.

    Thank you for your feedback, glad you enjoyed your your stay!, the floors are cleaned every week, however with them being 100% wool carpets we cannot wash them as often, however we will arrange for them to be professionally cleaned. The windows are cleaned inside & out once a month, we will monitor this we may need to increase the frequency. We do leave a welcome pack which includes dishwasher & washing machine tablets and tea towel's, we will leave additional out going forward. Kind Regards, Jonathan. Property Owner
