A truly beautiful home, we (family of 16)stayed here for the weekend for our yearly Christmas family gathering and certainly were not let down.
They had put up a lovely Christmas tree and decorations as requested. And the house was simply spot on. From the snooker room to the fully equipped kitchen to the kids play room for the grandchildren.
There was absolutely nothing we needed that wasn’t there.
We all sat round the kitchen preparing a full on Christmas dinner and and there was abundance of everything you could ever want to cook with.
The house has a lovely warm and cosy feel. The comfy tv room & the beautiful main room at the entrance with the Christmas tree and the fire crackling away was straight out of the story books.
The bedrooms are all a great size & the beds & duvets were all nice and comfy.
Plenty of towels and plenty of bathrooms for all and a great shower in the wet room.
The garden is beautifully maintained with a big chess board and trampoline to keep the kids amused if you get the weather.
The drive up to the house is just the icing on the cake..
Just beautiful... go there and enjoy....
Really only downside is having to leave....?
A wonderful experience in a beautiful stately home/chateau everything you could ask for and more. It was a surprise for my wife's 60th and she loved it Warm Regards john
Ideal location for groups of 10-16 to spend time together. We had space to gather in small groups (snooker room, kitchen, lounge, tv room, garden & yet also dine together. Only issue may be number of bathrooms (3) for some but clearly indicated to us prior to visiting.
Lots of bits and pieces to use in kitchen and good sized refrigerator for group gathering. Service station nearby if short of staples.
Many thanks - recommend
The building creates a wonderful first impression, on our weekend the snowdrops welcomed us along the driveway.
Excellent accommodation for our "hen" group and would make a wonderful family base.
Beautiful rooms, lots of space well equipped kitchen - lots of space for "get together" breakfasts or night time feasts.
Excellent gardens, wonderful area for kids with quieter areas for adults if required - there was a tree house but when we visited (in the winter) it was out of bounds fir repairs.
Lovely bed linen and towels, comfortable beds an excellent huge walk in wet room that a family could shower in together.
A welcoming, beautiful interesting house.
We hired the hall for my 50th birthday weekend. We were met by the housekeeper sue who was friendly & with a wealth of local knowledge.
The house is homely, well equipped, an a fantastic space for a large group of people.
You should be aware there are no ensuite bedrooms. Which may put some people off renting the hall, but the compromise is worth it. There are 3 bathrooms for 8 bedrooms.
The living space & conservatory dining area work brilliantly with direct access to a child friendly garden. The garden is stunning from every room.
We will defiantly be returning for a second time.
Well done to Jonathan & polly & your team keep up the good work.
I am writing this review as I'm curled up in the fantastic cinema room! Jonathan the owner made this booking so easy and was brilliant and quick at responding. The pictures don't do this house justice!! It just goes on forever and we don't won't to leave. There are 10 adults and 5 children ranging from 2 to 16 and there really is something for everyone. We are already planning our next trip! Thank you Jonathan for your incredible generosity and wonderful home!
We have just spent 3 nights in this marvellous home where we were immediately made very welcome by Sue and her husband. We were celebrating a big birthday with an extended family group which was made up of 12 adults and one 6 week baby. The house is amazingly suitable for children as there is so much on offer for them. However the adults did their best to enjoy the trampoline, pogo stick, tree house and other toys whilst also loving the snooker table, ping pong table and grand piano!
We used the cinema room to watch a very important football match on the Thursday evening but after that the weather was so lovely for us we spent most of our time in the garden. Friday was an organised day at Chester races and on Saturday we split the family and visited Ludlow and Llangollen. (Both within easy driving distance)
Saturday night was our big celebration meal cooked and served by Ruth (a wonderful caterer recommended by the owner). After a fantastic meal we retired to the amazing entrance lounge and sang around the grand piano (Good job the house is away from neighbours although not sure how the baby managed!!)
After a big clear up on Sunday morning and many boxes of recycling, we departed our various ways, tired but happy after a fantastic weekend. We would love to return to the house for another celebration (hopefully more grandchildren by then!) and would thoroughly recommend it to big groups.
