Good accommodation for a large gathering of people in a lovely location
Plenty of space for entertaining aswell as eight spacious bedrooms - all well decorated and equipped
Moonwood house is beautiful, quirky and finished to a very high standard! Great place for big groups
We had a wonderful stay at Moonwood House and I would definitely recommend it to others! The hot tub is a good extra addition to the property and the tennis court and BBQ just add to the facilities! Louis who was looking after us could not have been more attentive and helpful. His responses were immediate, we were most impressed! We had a great stay and the welcome hamper was a lovely little extra touch! We’d definitely go back, thoroughly enjoyed by all! Thankyou
Make amazing memories in this magical kingdom
Magnificent, mind boggling and beyond marvellous on multiple dimensions: Moonwood House is a magical kingdom full of charm and curiosities and an abundance of comforts — the perfect place for creating new memories. We were treated like VIPs from our first email contact to our last wave goodbye, with every possible whim catered for, and more. From a custom set-up to accommodate all our guests to the generous welcoming touches, there was truly nothing more we could have wished for. The house itself is full of wonderful surprises… a record player on a seriously swanky sound system, complete with a nostalgic-cool vinyl collection, oodles of great books, even a yoga mat. You’d need a month to properly enjoy it all. Between the heavenly hot tub, gorgeous grounds, and cosy whisky snug, you’d be hard pressed to choose a favourite space, but for us, the fully equipped kitchen proved perpetually alluring — inspiring ideas for ever more fanciful dinners with its huge array of tools (from a tagine to a waffle maker) and plenty of space for back-seat chefs to join in from the sidelines. We would return in a blink, and definitely for longer next time! A truly special place that’s definitely different… and completely delightful. Thank you, Moonwood, for a fabulous and unforgettable weekend.
Gorgeous house, beautiful surroundings, great owners.
Moonwood House is set in stunning scenery and is the most beautiful house. The decoration and internal features make it a really special place to be. Despite it's grandeur, it feels really welcoming and cosy.
12 of us, ranging from 8-70 years old, had the most amazing time. There are so many fun things to do, as well as relaxing and chilling. The hot tub and tennis court were particular favourites.
We cooked for ourselves, including a formal dinner, and really enjoyed using the gorgeous kitchen. It really is the hub of the house.
We booked the beautician to come for the day too, enjoying a range of massages, facials, manicures and pedicures.
The owners were warm and friendly and most thoughtful in their preparation of the house for us. They certainly went above and beyond. Communication was really easy too.
Overall, this really is the most joyous place to hang out with family and friends and we would love to stay again!
Perfect property for a large group with plenty of privacy and with amazing views
Moonwood was perfect for our university reunion of 15 people. It exceeded our expectations. Louis made us feel very welcome upon arrival and took the time to show us around the house. It was spacious, beautifully decorated and had plenty of tech (steam shower, sky, good wireless, sonos etc). There was also some nice unexpected touches such as tennis racquets, a massage chair (cover), a good built in NEFF coffee machine, lots of candles and towels, spare toiletries, a record player and a really lovely well equipped kitchen (which we spent most of our time in!). It was also lovely to wake up to breathtaking views - which was helped by the lovely sunny weather we experienced during our stay. We made full use of the tennis court, piano and hot tub. We would also recommend lunch at The Cat in West Hoathly. Thanks Louis - we are planning on returning in 2018!
