A very good place for a short stay. We were a party of 15 including children. The rooms are very well organised. It sleeps 18. Good for a small office get together or extended family meet.
Everyone had fun. age range 2 years to 55 years.
It was three families who had just taken a short break. It was worth every penny. The welcome and hospitality were great.
The service was wonderful as well. We had a problem with the hob and were told help would arrive within 1&1/2 hours. Can you beat it. All checked , changed and left within that time.

“Beautiful Manor House, lovely stay”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

What a fantastic property. Perfect for our large family, meeting up centrally from all over the country as a birthday surprise. Of course a property of such an age has some decor issues but then it is still beautiful and charming. So many original features, but central heating ensured it was always warm in the rooms. The large dining area was perfect for our family and with a number of sitting rooms and of course games room, it meant we were never too crowded. Plenty of bathrooms and stunning main bedrooms. Good facilities and very clean.

I believe the setting would make a fantastic Murder Mystery location for groups, with the rooms it has. Make use of the amazing open fires, they made it even more like staying in our very own mini stately home.

I would also recommend the service and communication from the owners, unlike a few minority reports we've read, nothing was too much trouble. They were easy to communicate with and helped with questions we had, even agreeing an early entrance to the house.

Please treat this beautiful building with respect, there aren't many properties for rent for this price and you will have a very relaxing and pleasant stay in a fantastic party of the country.

Wonderful stay in the manor with 15 friends, beautiful house and a great place to have a get together. No issues at all and a beautiful location, could not fault either the management who kindly showed us round or the wonderful welcome basket of wine and goodies that were left for us. Great value stay and would 100% come back

“Great manor and great stay”

Owners were absolutely fantastic. The property was great especially with kids as the space available in the manor is enormous. In the winter it could potentially get cold but with the fireplaces on the ground floor, this should be sufficient. Plus bearing in mind that the manor was built in 1800s, this is completely understandable. Heating was great in the bedrooms and our stay was extremely comfortable. Owners were great. Apart from one slight issue, which was immediately resolved by the owners. Highly recommend it and would stay again. We are already planning on coming back again in the summer.

Reviewed 22 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Had a wonderful stay at the manor - we were very kindly welcomed and shown around the place. We had one small issue on the first night which was quickly resolved by them - great space, great for a group of people and would certainly recommend based on how great value the place was due to the size and views.
