The perfect country escape.
What a truly wonderful experience this was! As one of the guests who stayed with the main person booking the trip, I couldn't recommend White Hopton House more highly. Normally, I'm a city boy through and through and if you'd asked me prior to going, being out in the middle of quiet countryside with no access to the outside world would have been my idea of hell. However, instantly upon arrival I felt at home. Greeted by a roaring log fire and homely, comfortable furniture - there wasn't a single decoration that felt out of place. Every room had that high level of comfort and luxury. With a steam room, heated pool and hot tub, this was the perfect winter retreat for a thirtieth birthday. We were very much left to our own devices but we had the comfort of knowing the owners were only next door if we needed anything (they were also kind enough to take one of our friends to the station as they had to leave early). We were greeted in the morning to a lovely hand written note and some fresh eggs for breakfast - believe the hype, these eggs really do not get more free range or fresh. I have never had eggs like this! It was also such a lovely surprise to see peacocks parading around the back garden in the morning. As a very large group, there was still enough space that you could go somewhere for some quiet time on your own if you needed to. We were so in love with the property after the first 24 hours that we're in discussions of coming back quarterly. I couldn't recommend this property highly enough. There was wifi access, but I didn't use it once because I felt so relaxed here. Every single detail was thought of - there were even games consoles in the conservatory!
As a keen cook, the kitchen was perfect, with plenty of preparation space and every utensil you could possibly need. It's the sort of place where your troubles all melt away in the space of four days. I was truly sad to leave but I'm very excited to plan our next retreat to White Hopton House.
Great holiday but some mixed opinions
A great holiday spent with an extended family - celebrating three birthdays. This is a lovely location, beautiful countryside, amazing character house and super outdoor heated pool which the children really enjoyed - the adults preferred the outdoor tub! Peacocks, geese and chickens in the grounds add to the atmosphere. Beautifully furnished as well with huge TVs. Despite it being a typical English summer the patio is well sheltered and we spent most evenings outside and had two barbaques - if it had been sunnier a patio umbrella might have been needed. There is enough grounds to satisfy the most active of families (we played rounders one evening). It's a really quiet location - though early morning chorus from peacocks may wake you! But don't come here if you need to log on to broadband. The broadband was limited to say the least - 0.025Mbs on wifi next to the router - drove our younger generation up the walls in frustration. Maybe the previous week's visitors used up their monthly satellite allowance but in my opinion if you advertise broadband as being available then it should be! That said it did mean more time was spent enjoying the other facilities and each other's company! Small asides: some beams are low so expect to have to keep ducking if you are over 5' 8" (it's part of the houses great character); the attic bedrooms are suitable only for younger family members, neither have curtains or blinds (so sleeping in is hard) and one has no door between it and the stairs / landing; there are only three bathrooms in the house (two on suite) plus a downstairs w/c and poolroom shower room outside. The master bedroom is amazing.
The accommodation was amazing and the location in Wales was beautiful
This is a beautiful property in a beautiful rural location. Having both a heated swimming pool and a hot tub made it very special.
What an amazing family holiday we had. We couldn't have asked for more! As soon as we arrived, a beautiful feeling of peace and tranquillity resided and we all immediately felt 'at home'. From 1 year old to 80 years old, it was the perfect place to reflect, spend time with extended family and make memories. The owners are there if you need them but not encroaching in any way. The delivery of fresh, free range eggs from hens you can see running around in the field next to you, both on arrival and on our last day, was a lovely touch. And the peacocks are spectacular! The pool and jacuzzi are an added bonus.
