  • "Lovely large house in extensive grounds and beautiful views."

    Plenty of room for all the family. Very clean and nice surprise with the delicious cakes on arrival. Would have liked a hairdryer and pool table needs some repairs but didn't spoil our holiday. Thank you to the friendly owners for a great a Easter

  • "We booked the Manor House because it could accommodate all four close families."

    Unfortunately our USA family were unable to join us due to COVID restrictions but the remaining three families including six young cousins had a wonderful time together. The house itself is ideal for large groups - very comfortable and spacious - and the surrounding lawns are ideal for outdoor life. Our host and hostess were very helpful and hospitable and we hope to return again in the not-too-distant future.

  • "The Manor House is very well equipped for large groups."

    It was very clean and tidy when we arrived and the owner was friendly and welcoming. WiFi was ok but it is rural and phone signal was erratic. All more than made up by the fantastic views and lack of noise.

  • "Fab house for a group."

    A little tired in places but the rooms are big and the grounds are fab. Lots of nice walks in the area and the fishing pond was well used . Would recommend for a group - but it’s not In perfect Condition - which makes you more relaxed as not worried about any damage being done ! Owners very friendly and came to fix a couple of small issues for us immediately once pointed out.

  • "This was a last-minute booking as we were celebrating a 40th birthday and our camping plans had to be abandoned due to bad weather."

    The house is lovely with amazing views over quintessential English countryside. It was very quiet and peaceful - far from any main road. We were a party of 13 - 6 adults and 7 little people aging from 10 - 3. There was plenty of space for everyone in the large house and round the kitchen table. Lots of cupboard space in the bedrooms. The beds are all super comfortable. The garden is enclosed and flat, so good for ball games. Lots of ensuites and a luxurious bathroom, a big lounge with plenty seating, and the pool table all helped to make the bad weather not an issue at all. There are a couple of other holiday cottages in the complex but we barely saw them and never heard them. There is also a beehive at the far end of the garden but this wasn't an issue at all. All in all, it was a lovely stay in a beautiful place.
