The accommodation was superbly comfortable. It was great to come back after a long walk, leave boots and damp gear in the boot room and, after tea and cake, sink into steaming baths. There seemed to be an endless supply of hot water. A highlight was our final meal, the chef and the butler gave us a superb evening. Not only was the food top class, but the meal incorporated surprises and treats, fun and good humour. We were bowled over by the friendliness of the team.
Mrs Henley

We liked the whole holiday; from the professional and friendly staff to the house and grounds. I cannot say enough about it. The house was warm, well stocked and we felt completely at home and relaxed. We loved it.
Mrs Cooper

The caretakers were absolutely lovely and very helpful. The house is absolutely beautiful and the bedrooms are massive with stunning views from every window. There were bathrooms absolutely everywhere. We would recommend this house to absolutely anyone.
Mr Wentworth

A fabulous house and location - we all LOVED it and would definitely use this property again, it exceeded all expectations. Thank you so much.
Miss Edwards

we stayed here in June this year on our annual family holiday. Our ages ranged from 4 months to 86 years and the house was more than we anticipated. Whilst we were here it was my husbands 60th birthday and we engaged the services of the chef and butler to cook and serve our meal which was absolutely out of this world. The food was amazing and the service was second to none. We really felt like lords and ladies for the week and would not hesitate to recommend the place to anyone looking to book somewhere truly 5 star and away from it all.
