  • "A fabulous week spent at Dunham House."

    An amazing place with wonderful accommodation, facilities and grounds. Could not have chosen a better place to celebrate a 70th birthday with all the family. Highly recommended and hope to return for another holiday in the future.

  • "I was unsure about booking a Staycation for my family but I can say that Dunham House exceeded our expectations."

    It was truly beautiful and even though the weather wasn't great we had the stunning pool and jacuzzi to compensate. We all loved it and the staff were fantastic. The kids loved the indoor cinema - we all felt so relaxed after our week's stay. Thank you also to the owners who were on the other end of the phone should we need anything extra. We would definitely book again.

  • "Absolutely beautiful house."

    It is well looked after inside and out, clean and so spacious there was more than enough room for our party of 10. We had the best holiday with everything you could wish for. The facilities were great, the children loved playing in the indoor swimming pool, watching movies in the cinema room and running around the huge grounds. Fiona was really helpful in the run up to and during our booking. Mandy the housekeeper was lovely and every house needs Jim the gardener/caretaker. He was always on hand to help and give advice on anything and nothing was too much for him. He was great with the children and they loved collecting the chickens egg in the morning and having a ride on the tractor. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dunham House.

  • "This property was amazing and it had every possible facility one could wish for."

    It was extremely spacious, clean , well equipped and maintained both inside and outside. There were also a good selection of garden toys for the young children and the house garden was fenced for safety. The swimming pool and tennis court are superb. We were made very welcome by the owner’s staff when we arrived who gave us a guided tour of the property and explained how different facility items worked. The gardener/maintenance man was fantastic and became a star attraction with our grandchildren. To conclude we had a superb time and would love to return in the future.
