“Fabulous Party House!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We celebrated my Birthday at Pettistree House with family and close friends. With ages ranging from 2 to 80 years, we really couldn't have stayed anywhere more perfect. The bedrooms on the ground floor were ideal for the less mobile and the selection of toys kept the younger members of the party entertained. It was marvellous to be able to seat everyone together in the dining room and the party room with its sound system was perfect for the disco divas amongst us. The large kitchen was a huge hit with everyone and was definitely the hub of the house.A fabulous venue with every detail considered and provided. We hope to be able find another reason to come back here and celebrate again, in the none too distant future.

“Absolutely gorgeous”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We arrived on Friday afternoon to be shown round this gorgeous property by the owner, Peter. The attention to detail in every room is amazing, with snowy white bed linen and fluffy white towels, log fires and in the huge kitchen an Aga, which we quickly mastered. The party room is something else ...and ensured that we could dance off the superb dinner that was provided by a local restaurant on Saturday night. we really could not think of anything that was missing ...and we are all currently trying to think of a reason for another big party weekend at Pettistree.

“Great venue”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 for a stay in October 2012

We have hired a number of largish houses for various celebrations and hired Pettistree in October 2012 for our 30th wedding anniversary with family and friends. We wanted to write a review because it is one of the best houses we have hired and the helpful Peter and Luisa made organising our stay very easy. The kitchen with three dishwashers (yes three!) and fantastic breakfast seating area was brilliant for informal gathering/chatting the formal dining room and party room with great sound system and lighting was great fun. The pool table was in constant use. The bedrooms are brilliant, many with luxurious en-suites. The separate annexe for additional guests is of the same standard. Would definitely recommend Pettistree for anyone wanting a lovely stay for a party weekend.
