Incredible venue! Perfect for our large group

  • 5 of 5

Westcott House is a stunning house in beautiful grounds. We were a large group of friends who required a house for the weekend and this venue surpassed our expectations.

There was plenty of space for all of us for the weekend. We particularly loved the dining room with the enormous dining table that seated us all comfortably for our evening meals. The kitchen was also well equiped with utensils, glassware and crockery for us all. :)

The house is clean, well presented and clearly well looked after. We loved the extra touches with the flowers and hamper of food and drinks we had on our arrival :)

All communication was prompt and clear which made the whole booking of the venue very straight forward. Thank you! :) We will recommend the venue to others in the future.

Westcott House is a stunning house located in beautiful grounds. We were a large group of friends requiring a weekend house for us to all catch up and this venue surpassed our expectations!

There was plenty of space for all of us and I particularly loved the large dining table in the dining room that seated us all comfortably for our evening meals. :) The kitchen was also well equipped with all the utensils you need to cook for a large party.

The house was clearly well looked after and well presented. We particularly liked the small touches like the flowers and hamper on arrival. :)

We would definitely recommend this venue to others. :)

A Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

Westcott house is the most fabulous house! It is well suited for a large family gathering. Every room has character and has been finished to such a high standard. The house had everything we possibly could have needed for our stay. A perfect weekend in a wonderful house, we would love to return!

Stunning! Perfect venue for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

We rented Westcott House for our wedding weekend and it was perfect.

The living space is very tastefully decorated and perfectly comfortable for large parties. The kitchen is very well equipped and geared up for catering for large parties. On the Friday we had 20 for a three course dinner, Saturday, our wedding reception, we catered for 50+ guests, and on the Sunday we had 24 people for Sunday lunch. The garden is amazing, the kids loved it, great for hide and seek as well as enough space for a game of rounders. I highly recommend this house. It was an absolutely fantastic weekend and we're hoping to go back there soon for another big family get together.
