11 Adults, 11 kids, dogs...what could possibly go wrong?! Absolutely nothing! We had the best 3 days ever :) highly recommend this venue and huge thanks to Tara and Ann who really went the extra mile to make it such a special break. Looking forward to round 2! x
We had an amazing long weekend to celebrate a bunch of old friends turning 50 recently and Hill House provided exactly what we needed,
The bedrooms are all fantastic and the layout really suited a large party very well.
Hill House has more than enough space for everyone not to be on top of each other yet a real cozy feeling when we were all sitting around in front of a roaring log fire or the large dining table, talking nonsense until the early hours.
The tennis court and table tennis table kept the sporty types, and the kids , occupied whilst the Games Room has Air Hockey and "old school" arcade games like Space Invaders and Pacman for the less energetic.
Tara looked after us extremely well and nothing was too much bother for her...MANY THANKS TARA!!!!....She arranged for Bill to come to the house and cook Fish and Chips for us on our first night and mixed us some mean cocktails for our "Posh Gala Dinner".
The grounds are great and there was even an outdoor Treasure Hunt arranged for the kids.
All in all, we had an amazing weekend and I would recommend Hill House without hesitation. We will definitely be back!!
A fabulous place to spend a weekend away! We were a large group ranging in ages 4 to 50 and we were all spoilt for choice as to what to do! Even the teenagers! From tennis tournaments to lovely walks to cocktails being served by the wonderful Tara! A stunning house in a stunning location. Can't wait to return
Have just spent a fabulous long weekend at Hill House with a group of friends. Felt very spoilt with all amenities being top class, from the bang olufsen sound system playing throughout the house to the white company bed linen and toiletries.
Having a large number of children with us, their needs were catered for too. Amazing games room and separate tv lounge for children whilst adults had the spacious lounge with fire roaring and cocktails being served by the lovely Tara.
The grounds allowed the children the freedom they crave to explore and the organised treasure hunt was a great success.
We used all Hill House has to offer, loved it and hopefully will be back! Thank you.
This is the perfect place to stay if like us you are a large group. We were 11 adults 11 children and 4 dogs and it's difficult to say who had the best time. When we left several children were in tears and some of the adults were close to tears. Everything has been thought through to the tiniest detail. Each bedroom was like a top hotel. There are some many different areas downstairs from the games room, to different lounges to suit whatever mood you are in. The grounds are great with beautiful countryside to walk through to clear the head if needed. I can't recommend this place highly enough. We are already planning our next trip!
From the moment I contacted Darren to the moment we left Tara, the experience of staying at Hill House was perfect. As a company, and team of 8, we were looking for a venue where we could host a relaxed meeting, whilst being off site and able to unwind and relax in the countryside. Hill House was perfect for this - there was plenty of space for us to spread out, and great to have all audio visual equipment to host a meeting - from a projector to microphone - I dare say these are also available for karaoke also! I don’t think I’ve ever had a meeting next to a roaring log fire before! It was then perfect for us to chill out in the evening, making use of the snug to play board games, and also the fantastic games room to have a few competitions of pool. The bedrooms were all of a fantastic standard, providing a range of different sized rooms and bathrooms. We loved the kitchen, and preparing meals and breakfast, eating in both the kitchen and the dining room. It was quite drizzly outside, so we didn’t get to use the gardens much unfortunately - maybe next time!
When i booked, i had no idea that we would also have the pleasure of Tara during our stay during the days - oh my goodness, this lady is fantastic, and as a corporate stay, Tara provided us with pastries, teas, coffee’s - soy milk, skimmed milk, full milk, snack bars and biscuits and cakes - everything you could think of for a snack break. We hadn’t expected this, and it was such an added bonus to have a break and have everything laid out ready for us. She was also on hand for all our technical enquiries, and gave us a thorough tour of the house on arrival. Before we arrived, Tara also provided us with taxi numbers, and a range of dining options to suit lots of budgets, from fish and chips to apple martinis and popping brownies! Tara is a lovely lady, who really went the extra mile for us at every turn - thank you for everything you did for us!
To sum up - booking as a business, Hill House worked extremely well, and their attention to detail for corporate meetings was impeccable. The other members of my team were quite blown away when they arrived. Thank you for a lovely stay - we hope to be back one day for a meeting, and will certainly recommend you to other areas of the business. If i can make it back with my family as well one day, then i’d love to show them the House.
We enjoyed a great long weekend at Hill House. Impressive manor, with character and well kitted out. We had 19 staying and there was plenty of space. Tara was great, she was very helpful, gave us a tour when we arrived and was there straight away when we had an issue with the ice cream vending machine.
Everyone at the Saxlingham Cricket Club, short walk down the road, was very friendly and welcomed us in to watch football on their Sky Sports.
Only downside was Golf and Swimming were more than 15mins walk away, as stated above, more like 5 mile drive (or 1hr 40mins walk according to Google maps) and only eight people allowed to swim at once (not the best when there are 19 in the party) and Bill’s Fish and Chips were a bit of a letdown, for the price we were disappointed.
Overall, a great place to stay, we didn’t want to leave and would recommend to anyone.
