After a significant number of years in the Police my wife Gail wanted to treat her family and friends to a weekend away. We selected Dartmouth House as it had the right number of rooms and Olney had a childhood connection for Gail and her immediate family. We arrived on the Friday evening and obtained the keys from the hotel... More

We chose this house for a family get together during a soggy November. After struggling to find somewhere reasonably priced for 7 adults and 5 children, we picked Dartmouth House for convenience and quickly booked it. Then we read some of the reviews and panicked a little... But! It was a perfect weekend! The house is old, but that makes... More

I stayed here with a group of friends in October 2014 - and was greatly impressed by the property, its facilities, its location and the overall value for money that it provided. Dartmouth House itself is a beautiful old property, with a real sense of history and old character features. The layout - dual staircases, rooms on different levels, and... More

We stayed at Dartmouth House during August Bank Holiday week and would make the following observations. Overall:- Dartmouth House is a pleasant property with some quirky and interesting features. It would appear though that the owners have not tried to “live” in the property recently. Parking is limited as although there is quite a large drive there is a very... More

To aich101, yes we remember you. You collected the keys on arrival day in the pouring rain and it unfortunately rained almost all of your stay too. Your miserable mood, on first meeting you, matched the weather, as you moaned about your five grand children, all under the age of four years, who never slept at night and how you... More

We stayed here for a family Christmas, only good things to say about the house. We loved its quirky layout and period features. The house is vast, loads of room for entertaining and even at capacity it never felt crowded. The garden is a wonderful, full of hidden passages and there is a lovely area for outside dining. The kitchen... More

We stayed at Dartmouth House with friends for a long weekend in December. We all had a great time, the property is in a great location and walkable into the village square. There is off street parking and plenty of parking on the road (which we found easier). It's not too far from Milton Keynes. The house is well equipped... More

Yes, we have 3 bad reviews on this site and they all have one thing in common. These people all lost their security / damages/ good housekeeping deposit for trashing our holiday house whilst staying in it. We find that this then follows a process of them blackmailing us for its return and then, when we stand up for ourselves,... More

We are a group of 12 friends from school and university that regularly go away together for weekends in rented cottages. The town is nice. The house itself was fine. The layout is a bit of a maze but the beds were all comfortable and we were never cold (which can be a problem in some of the older houses).... More

To EriskayGirl of London, we remember your stay well. We were unlucky to have you as guests. Yes, the house is a maze, as it dates from 1700 and has two staircases and has huge rooms. There are three bathrooms in the house, one has a shower and the other two have a bath. We do not know why you... More
