Wow! What a fab place to relax with family and friends. Stayed for 3 days to celebrate my dads 70 th birthday. The house is gorgeous and every room has its own magic. Although there was loads of room to lose each other it still had a great homily feel. Had a great morning learning archery followed by the best fish and chips I've ever tasted. We had Somerly cater for my dads birthday meal which was totally delicious, followed by a lovely birthday cake. Janine and her team have thought of everything and are really helpful with anything you may need. All I can say is we have made some unforgettable memories at an amazing venue, thank u so much!
We held our farewell party/wedding reception at the the Old Hall. Prior to arriving at the property I was quite anxious over what to expect – I'd never booked a holiday rental before, and definitely nothing quite so fancy. I was expecting a shoes-off as soon as we enter the door, wood fires out of action unless with housekeeping supervision and generally a feeling that I shouldn't touch anything in case I broke it and lost our good housekeeping deposit! But it was nothing like that.
Tanya, the housekeeper, was great and instantly put me at ease showing us around the place as well as where to find things (even adding, 'if it's unlocked, have a look!'. We were having quite a lot of family over and a table extension and table cloths were provided, along with a temporary put up bed and cot for my siblings children (which was must appreciated!) In general Janine was very flexible and made our weekend the best it possibly could have been.
Tips: (and this is probably due to my ignorance) but if it's an 'event' you're celebrating, an extra fee is required and the good housekeeping deposit is doubled. Also, the wireless is great, but the phone signal is not – great for whatsapp, less great for calls. Thankfully you are able to make local calls from the landline!
Went to the old hall for a 50th Birthday celebration. What a fantastic place, lovely lounge areas, open fires and bathrooms galore. Unlike many large houses the atmosphere inside is homely and warm. Set in lovely grounds and a lovely village I would recommend to anyone wanting a getaway for a large group of family or friends. Great value too. Fantastic!
