  • "We are a party of 9 adults of mixed ages and 2 children under 10."

    We chose this location to celebrate a 60th birthday and we were not disappointed. Fabulous property for large group. Plenty of space to be together or seperate for chill out time. All bedrooms are large and we had no disagreements on who was going to have which bedroom! Jane was a fantastic host and thank you for the cake and wine on arrival. Thank you for the wonderful stay. Hope to come back soon.

    Thanks for such a positive review, we look forward to seeing all of you again any time you fancy to revisit. Property Owner

  • "Very nice welcome from hosts, without being intrusive."

    The Manor House is a lovely building and was perfect for our party of fifteen, including children. Every room has more than adequate space. The land around the property is beautiful and inviting for walks in all types of weather. There is a lovely pub, cafe, village shop and a children's playground no more than a twenty minute walk away. We will definitely be looking into going back.

    Thanks for such a great review, glad you all enjoyed our place, hope to see you all again another time. Property Owner

    The setting and views are lovely and ideal for celebrations or for relaxing holiday. It is also a good base for visiting several places of interest. The owner is very helpful and we would definitely like to visit again

  • "A wonderful and pleasant experience."

    We were around 16 people. Rooms are spacious, clean and in great order. WiFi was available and it made amends to the patchy mobile signal reception in the area. Above all, Jane and Andrew were fantastic hosts. They made sure that our stay was stress and hassle free. We are planning to visit again. I would recommend The Manor House to anyone looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday set in a rural backdrop.

    Thank you for being such perfect guests, it was a pleasure hosting you and your friends, we look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

  • "What a brilliant stay!"

    The property and setting where wonderful! We went with a larger group of friends and the property was ideal for hosting the group! So much so that a few of the party are looking at brining family back so its ideal for both group and larger family events! The hosts where always on hand to help and although we didnt need anything it was nice to know that they where there if we did! Fantastic place, highly recommend!

    thanks for a enthusiastic review, glad you all enjoyed our place, look forward to hosting you or your friends again. Property Owner

  • "Stayed for a weekend with 8 old school friends, Jane came to meet on arrival and was friendly and helpful."

    There was plenty of space for us all inside and all the rooms were lovely. The views were incredible. We walked to the end of the lane to the Woodcock Inn to eat on the Satuday which was also very good. The weather was cool for the time of year but we still enjoyed the garden and there was a pool table and table football to occupy us when it was raining. overall a really good value property.

    Hi Alison, Thanks for such a positive review, glad you all enjoyed your time here. Hope you find an excuse to meet up again next year. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely stunning and perfect property for our friends weekend reunion."

    Manor House was the perfect venue for us. There was lots of space, it was really clean, had all the right equipment and the beds and facilities were excellent. It was toasty warm, very comfortable and made us all feel relaxed and at home. We really enjoyed our staff and the owner was friendly and happy. We will find a reason to have another reunion that is much less than 5 years apart. Great place. 100% recommend.

  • "We spent a wonderful family Christmas at The Manor House."

    There was plenty of room for 14 of us, with spacious bedrooms and enough bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped for us to cook a full Christmas dinner, and the kitchen was also a very sociable place with its large dining table. The children enjoyed playing hide and seek in the house, as well as using the pool table and football table, and also playing football in the large garden (despite the wet weather). The house was lovely and warm - actually too warm on the first night, but the owners helped us to adjust the thermostat. The walk to the village using footpaths across muddy fields provided fresh air, although we didn’t manage to visit the local pub as it was only open in the evenings, and we didn’t fancy the walk in the dark across the fields or along the country lane. But we didn’t miss it as we had plenty of Christmas food at the house and a comfortable living room to relax in! Overall this was a great house, and perfect for our Christmas holidays.

    There was plenty of space for us all to enjoy. The kitchen was a great space for gathering, chatting and preparing food. It's just a shame we had bad weather and weren't able to enjoy the countryside. Would definitely recommend.

    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.

    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.
