Fantastic house for family gathering
My wife and I arrived on the 7th June 2019 to prepare for other family members arriving to help us celebrate our 45th anniversary. We were met by Pat who was brilliant in explaining everything about the house / pool etc. She ensured that we had her contact number in case of assistance. The weather could have been better in June but the wonderful indoor pool took away the disappointment in not being able to have a BBQ / play in the garden etc. The actual facilities in the property were 100% - They have thought of everything to assist in making certain you can entertain properly ie - serving dishes / glasses etc etc etc. Nothing has been left to chance. The other beauty is the 2 dishwashers to cater for the amount of people that could be in the house. We were a party of 13 aged between 3 years and 73 years therefore we had more than enough space for everyone. On our final day, Pat was there to ensure everything had gone well. We never felt rushed to leave, albeit we were ready as we knew that the house had to be vacated by 10am. If you have a large party to cater for, this is the house to do it. Clean / bright and quiet with the added attraction of the indoor pool and games room (complete with a beer fridge!....supply your own beer of course!) All we can say on behalf of our family - thank you!
A lovely house in need of a little bit of TLC.....
We and several other couples rented The Croft for one of our periodic reunions (and had an absolutely splendid time!). The house and setting are lovely, and the surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful. The pool is a decent size and the jacuzzi and sauna a real bonus.
Where I agree with some other reviews is that the splendor of the house and grounds is at risk of being somewhat diminished by a lack of attention to small but important details. The two TVs are decent (but not smart so basic freeview channels only and no streaming) but the DVD players were ancient, poorly setup (SCART cables in 2018?) and faulty. I think I was probably the first person in years to change the batteries in the non-functioning remote for one of them judging by the state of the old batteries but even then the player was still temperamental. There was no mesh/wi-fi repeaters so most of the house/site had no wi-fi coverage. This would always be an issue in todays connected world but given that there is absolutely no 3/4G and barely any phone signal in the location it was a real headache. Most of the bathrooms had small patches of mould in the shower enclosures some of which had seen better days.
Other less significant issues still niggled. There were unused picture hooks on bare walls which was a tad strange, quite a few light bulbs were missing, towels supplied were small and poor quality. The pool room was great fun but only had two usable cues (even they had dodgy tips) and no rests. Jacuzzi instructions were scrawled on a piece of paper and sellotaped to the window etc. Not earth-shattering but a bit at odds with the high quality of the house itself.
As I have said, we had a great time at The Croft (and I'm sure we'll be back!) but 1 weeks rental spent on a bit of maintenance and upkeep and a bit of investment in a few technical upgrades (you can buy a couple of decent smart Blu-ray players and fit mesh wi-fi across the site for about £500) would make a real difference and do the wonderful house and grounds justice and make The Croft a definite 5 star experience.
Lovely Place, very homely but a few things not working properly
Overall a really nice family location with fabulous pool, sauna, gym, jacuzzi and I would definitely recommend it and go again. The main building is nicely decorated with a huge TV in the living room, a large kitchen with Aga, separate cooker and 2 dishwashers! There were a couple of niggly things that needed sorting out like the broadband not working (wouldn't have bothered packing my laptop if I'd known), the shower tray waste in my room was either blocked or not sufficient for the high water pressure and filled ankle deep, a few of the showers seemed a bit temperamental I'm told, one had a leak. The extractor fan didn't work either in the Jack and Jill bathroom. Just a little bit of maintenance would have made this 5 star.
A great family celebration.
This is a huge house in a beautiful position. There were 20+ of the family aged 13 to 80 years and we all had a great time, swimming ( good size), jaccusi, sauna, exercise gym, pool table, large lawns, with games, all in first class condition. Fully equipped large kitchen, large dining room, comfortable lounges. Everything you could need for a large group. We had a fantastic time and are considering booking again for the next big family DO in 2020.
Fantastic property good location too , had everything we needed and the pool was a perfect temperature too.
