“THE MOST INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed April 9, 2019 for a stay in April 2019

I organised my bestfriends hen do to stay at the Church House and it was simply the most incredible venue. The owner greeted us on arrival and was very lovely. The place itself is stunning. Every single bit about it blew us away!! Not only was it visually amazing, it also had everything we could possibly need! Especially a hot tub! Everything was so well thought out and made it so enjoyable. Every single person was blown away by the Church House. Thankyou so so much!!!

“Stunning Property that has EVERYTHING you need and more for a fantastoc break away”
Reviewed March 28, 2019 for a stay in March 2019

My family and I stayed at Church House recently for a very rare family get together. From the very moment we arrived we were completely blown away by how stunning the property is! Tim and Annie were fantastic hosts, upon arrival we were greeted with bubbles and smiles. The church is a fantastic property, with everything you need for a fantastic break away, with the added bonus of a hot tub, it really is a retreat you can relax in and unwind, in a stunning and welcoming environment.

“WOW Factor”
Reviewed March 9, 2019 for a stay in March 2019

What a place!! We stayed here with our family and can honestly say Church House exceeded the WOW factor in every way. The mix of old and new, quirky and convenience, luxury and comfort, technology and traditional was out of this world!
They really have thought of everything, comfy beds, superb sound system, beautifully warm with underfloor heating, two dishwashers (who knew you actually need two in your life), superbly equipped kitchen with EVERYTHING you will ever need (even a steamer), log burner, mood lighting throughout, everything controlled by touchpad, totally amazing!
Then there’s the decor, a master stroke, the modern style throughout fits beautifully with the ecclesiastical architecture of the church. Would we stay again, absolutely, in fact we are planning on making it an annual event. A must do place to go!

“Amazing place to stay! Just need an excuse to go back!!”
Reviewed March 1, 2019 for a stay in February 2019

I recently stayed at Church House with a group of friends for a hen weekend. We were really looking forward to our stay and were not disappointed!!

Annie and Tim greeted us at the house upon arrival and showed us around the house. The smart home system was great and you could control everything including music, heating, the blinds, lighting and door access from their iPad! We more than tested out the sound system and being able to connect your phone to it and play whatever music you wanted wirelessly was amazing!

The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need and has a great space for entertaining with the open plan kitchen/dining/living room area! It is a great mix of original features (the pulpit especially) and modern interior design!!

The whole house has a very luxurious feel to it, and has been finished to a very high standard with high spec bathrooms, comfy beds and plush carpets!

The large hot tub in the garden is a great addition to the house, and the dressing gowns and slippers provided were a nice touch! We stayed on a sunny weekend in February, but I can imagine the outside space in the summer would be great!!

Now I just need to find an excuse to re-book!!

“ABSOLUTELY STUNNING CHURCH AND WONDERFUL HOSTS”
Reviewed September 6, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

This was the second time I have been fortunate enough to stay at this amazing church. It is at the end of a quiet lane and surrounded by fields, it’s so peaceful.
Words cannot describe how beautiful the church is with a mix of old and new. It has been renovated to the very highest of standards, still with its character and charm but with all the comfort of a high end new property. The rooms are beautifully furnished with tasteful interior design. The garden is great to walk around or sit and relax with very comfy seating.
Tim and Ann are wonderful, friendly hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them..... if it’s possible, Ann will source it and deliver.
It’s ideal for a weekend getaway and meeting up with friends, it’s not often you get the opportunity to stay in a beautiful church. Thank you so much Tim and Ann, we will definitely be back.
