My friends and I were looking for a girly weekend away and were so excited having viewed the images online. The house did not disappoint; we had the most fun and lovely time here - the rooms are gorgeous, the bathrooms are fabulous, we so enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, and the outside area made for a relaxing space in the sunshine we were lucky to have, you'd never think you were in London! I just cannot recommend the house enough for a really special stay. Whilst it's not centrally located, that's not a problem - you'd never want to leave this house when you arrive anycase. Thanks again, for brilliant venue for our weekend.
We rented the house for a hen do, 18 of us for dinner with 17 staying. The facilities were just incredible, there is so much space (all of which is beautifully decorated). Catherine and Michael were really responsive and helpful in the run up to the night, and the deposit was returned quickly.
Cooking for 18 could have been a nightmare, but the huge amount of fridge/freezer/oven/dishwasher space made it so easy.
Needless to say the bride was blown away and we had an absolutely fantastic time. I would 100% recommend booking in here if you are looking for that extra 'Wow' factor.
We were blown away when we arrived at the property. It is beautifully designed and furnished. There were 20 girls staying for the weekend and there was more than enough space for us all and beds for everyone! Plenty of fantastic bathrooms too so getting ready was never a problem.
The owners were very, very helpful and keen to aid us with anything we needed.
Great location, short walk to the train station and then easy access in to central London.
Overall we had a fantastic stay and highly recommend the property. We will most definitely be back!
A large group of us stayed here for an event in the evening - the time we spent was great and it was an excellent space for what we needed. The layout is vast - it's a huge place with lots of room for activities. The property was freshly cleaned when we arrived, and was well maintained (lots of bathrooms with excellent showers). The manager was talkative throughout and we were catered for despite changes to our requirements. Would recommend for a large group of people. Many thanks to Catherine and Michael.
