Comfy beds and plenty of wardrobe space. Hot tub and games room were used by all of us. Plenty of seating outside and we were lucky as the weather was sunny and warm 5 days out of 7. The local pub is a ten minute walk away and well worth a visit. We were there to celebrate my 70th birthday and had a great time all week Jonathan and Emma are very friendly and helpful and responded straight away to texts when we had a question to ask.

The games room and hot tub had a lot of use and the kitchen/dining area was also well used area as well. Beds were comfortable and plenty of bathrooms. Fantastic place and hope to return next year. Reviewed by JaniceFeb 2022 "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.

Reviewed by FrancesNov 2021 "A beautiful house with 6 good sized bedrooms (3 en-suite), 2 sitting rooms, 1 large kitchen/dining/living room, 1 games room and a conservatory, set in lovely, well-tended gardens, in a quiet area." Everything was clean and tidy, and the owner was incredibly helpful and generous when we called with a couple of queries. I would definitely recommend The Manor House and hopefully, we'll be back for another stay. Reviewed by JacquelineSep 2021 "Lovely, spacious house that has loads of room for a big, extended family." It is a great base to go and explore different areas. The only drawback is that check in is at 5pm and check out is 9am. Hi Zara, Thankyou for your feedback, unfortunately due COVID we have to carryout additional cleaning and this takes longer than usual, as such we have had to extend the cleaning times to compensate. Sometimes the cleaning is actually finished prior to the usual check-in times, so if you ring ahead it maybe reasonable to check-in earlier. Kind Regards, Jonathan. Property Owner Reviewed by ZaraAug 2021 "We really enjoyed our visit to Manor House in Stanhill." We are an extended family with 8 adults and 4 children, so the huge dining room / kitchen became the centre for our family gatherings. The wonderfully laid out gardens were great for family fun and the hot tub seemingly in constant use. We also took delight in having a few games of snooker in the games room. Reviewed by RichardAug 2021 "Superb property very clean and plenty of space for all of the family ." Great hot tub Reviewed by TrevorJul 2021 "What a beautiful house, spotlessly clean very comfy beds, lovely modern bathrooms with great water pressure and hot water no matter what time of day." The garden is gorgeous and a setting for relaxing in the hot tub. The house has everything you need and more right down to the very posh coffee machine. We contacted the owners a few times and they got back to us straight away and were very helpful and friendly. Our favourite place was the games room leading to the lovely conservatory, the kids loved the snooker table and hanging out in there at night. I would highly recommend this house the local pub is less than 10 min walk and has amazing food, lots of takeaway options too and the place is great as a base for lots of day trips.

We will definitely be returning and already can’t wait for our next stay. Reviewed by JordanAug 2020 "The holiday home was delightful." The owners had thought of everything and it was well equipped. All the bathrooms and bedrooms were newly refurbished to a very high, modern standard. The host was very helpful to us during our stay. The house was very spacious and we enjoyed the games room and the hot tub. It was a lovely quiet location with good transport links and central to all the main attractions in the North West and only 30 minutes from the lovely beach at Lytham St Annes. We would highly recommend the property to others. Would be ideal for a family gathering or 2 families holidaying together.
