“Fantastic stay, truly amazing house”

person found this review helpful

Upon booking this house for 7 families, we were really looking forward to seeing if the house was as good as the pictures. It was stunning! The space inside and outside was unbeliveable.
Bedrooms and ensuites were lovely and entrance hall was beautiful. All the children loved the house and no-one wanted to come home. Both Lisa and Martin were very helpful and we all hope to visit again very soon.

“WOW fantastic 40th Birthday Weekend”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

Family and friends had a fabulous weekend at Castle Hill House for a 40th Birthday celebration. After being let down with a previous booking Lisa could not have been more helpful in assisting us with our booking. The house is exactly as shown on the website and is finished to a very high standard. All of the guests were really impressed with the house and grounds. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large, modern and very comfortable. For a large house accommodating such a large number of people there was always plenty of hot water. Due to the good weather we were able to enjoy the barbeque and both children and adults enjoyed the games of football and cricket in the large garden. The location of the property was excellent, the village of Tutbury was very picturesque with some lovely craft shops. The house was also in close proximity of Alton Towers. We will definitely book the house again for a large family gathering and would love to visit in the winter months.

“Perfect house for a reunion”
Reviewed May 16, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We had a fantastic weekend her recently for a school reunion. The house is huge and everything is of a very high standard. Beautiful big kitchen, lovely spacious garden and pristine bedrooms, most of which have en-suite. Will definitely have to book this place again in another ten years! Would definitely recommend this property.

“Stunning house perfect venue for a big doo”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

I booked castle Hill for my husbands 40th birthday with friends and family. It was perfect. The house can accommodate 28 people and it did comfortably there was loads of room . The hallway is amazing was the perfect setting for a cocktail party. The whole house is beautiful loads of original features such as the dome and glass ceiling over the middle of the house and stunning stain glass window. Bedrooms are really spacious most with wall to ceiling marble ensuites. We had an added bonus of the snow which made the setting even more amazing. All overlooking Tutbury castle ruins which provided a great backdrop for sledging with the kids. Will we be going back again? Definitely

“An Excellent stress free house for a large family at Christmas!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

My family were very comfortable in this house, excellent kitchen facilities with a utility room. The table in the kitchen made it the hub of the house and the most used room. The front room allowed all of us to sit comfortably for present giving and tv with the log burner adding atomsphere at Christmas. The owners had put up tasteful Xmas decorations and the original features of the house, with views over the castle enhanced the atmosphere. The table tennis, table football and pool table were well used. A good house for hide and seek.
The number of en-suites added to our comfort as well as ample secure parking. The church next door was a superb normal relic at which we enjoyed Midnight Mass. Bedding etc was a good quality and there was plenty of hot water!

“best new year's eve ever”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

The house was amazing and exceeded all our expectations. Decor was top class, luxurious and finished to a very high standard. Beautiful scenery and great walks for my dog in the surrounding areas. Me and my family went for one week to celebrate new year, 18 in total aged 3 to 68 years all had an excellent time. Would have booked for next new year but unfortunately already booked up, so we are all planning on visiting again in the summer for a BBQ, and to visit the many attractions which are close by such as Alton Towers etc. Tutbury itself is lovely with a number of pubs and shops which were only a couple of minutes walk. Could not find any faults and is the best place we have stayed to date. Unforgettable place.
