Stretton House is fantastic! We spent a truly memorable weekend there with 30 friends. The house is elegant and extremely comfortable, warm and welcoming. It is very well equipped and maintained to a high standard. We loved every minute of our stay - thank you Dena, Debbie and John for making it pure pleasure.
Just awesome. Perfect venue.
We cannot praise this beautiful house enough! The owners have thought of everything with lots of personal touches. Multiple day rooms - lounge, library, snug, conservatory etc means there is room for everyone. Conservatory excellent for dining. Both kitchens fully equipped. Bedrooms very comfortable and furnished to a very high standard
It is perfect for any gathering of family and friends.
We celebrated our Ruby Wedding Anniversary there and the whole experience was fantastic.
Would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone and hope to make a return visit one day!
Wonderful guests and such a lovely review, thank you so much. Hope to see you again.
Stunning! No other words suffice !
Words cannot describe how fantastic we found Stretton House. Pictures can often be deceptive but not in this case, the house is absolutely as good as it looks. We could not praise the house, the owner Dena or her team,, John and Debbie enough....we fully intend to return !
What a fantastic property for a house party. All the fittings are top quality and everything is pristine. Lovely and warm with lots of reception space to accommodate everyone. The whole weekend our guests constantly used the word “wow” to describe the facilities. The bedrooms are great and bathrooms superb, with an inexhaustible supply of hot water. Dena and here team did a great job of making us comfortable. We will definitely be returning to Stretton House.
We were a mixed group of friends who came for our annual university reunion. The house is set in beautiful grounds, near to a main road and yet you feel like you are far from it all. The property is spotlessly clean and amazingly sung and warm considering the size of the house. There are 2 modern very well equipped kitchens, one of which has a little bar and snug off it. There are 2 stunning reception rooms and a huge dining room which seated all 24 of us for a big evening meal. The bedrooms are all decorated individually and have their own on suites except for 2 of the twins which still have their own allocated bathrooms. We also really enjoyed the games annexe on a rainy January afternoon. The service we have received from Dena and her colleagues has been friendly and professional. We all enjoyed the champagne and goodies bag waiting for us in the drawing room when we arrived. Always quick to reply to emails and queries and on time for a very welcome arrive and farewell. We have already booked for next year!
