“beautiful house and a fabulous stay”
Reviewed February 29, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

having stayed here with a large group for a hen weekend what can say beautiful house, beautiful surroundings, I know my daughter (who booked it) had so much help from the management recommending places to eat and arranging transport for us all to get there too she couldn't speak more highly of them. It was a wonderful weekend with lots and lots of laughter. I just hope our laughter didn't keep anyone nearby awake. Thankyou batchcote hall for everything it was truly wonderful and thoroughly enjoyed by all

“Perfect location for my 40th”
Reviewed February 7, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

You may think the reviews for this place are too good to be true, but they are spot on. Batchcott really is an amazing place to go to with a large group of family/friends and young children. Its well looked after, but also not so pristine you worry about the kids touching anything. Eileen is as all the other reviews say, very helpful in making sure everything is as you want it, but also leaves you to just get on and enjoy your stay. I really recommend getting Jane Wilde to cook in the hall for you one night. It is very reasonably priced and excellent food - worked perfectly for our murder mystery evening once the kids had gone to bed. The Jaipur in Church Stretton is also great for a takeaway. We hope to book again soon>

“The Perfect Venue for a Family Christmas!”
Reviewed January 2, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Yet another wonderful stay at Batchcott Hall! As always, the house more than met our needs, with everyone very happy!

Eileen is a fabulous house manager; she was so helpful in the run up to and during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for her, and her warm welcome always makes you feel as though you have come 'home'! She always decorates a beautiful Christmas tree to greet you as you walk through the door!

This was our fourth stay in two years, and we're delighted we're already booked to come back in May this year!

Highly recommend this beautiful, character-filled home for any gathering of friends, family or both!

Thank you so much for your very kind words. It is great for me to see the house being used so perfectly at Christmas as it lends itself as you say to these special family events. Looking forward to seeing you all in May.

“Awesome party house!”
Reviewed November 17, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

As a lot of the reviews say, the photos don't do the property justice!
So much space, yet still cosy. Incredible views, lovely lawn, enjoyed the tennis court despite the rough weather! Warmed up by the many fires and the Aga.
Thank you Eileen for the cake and the incredible service, can't wait to come back!
Can't recommend this house enough!

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at Batchcott Hall for a long weekend over the weekend of the 14th August for my husband's 70th Birthday with our closest friends. We are so happy we chose so celebrate this special birthday at Batchcott as it was just perfect. Eileen is really the best host you could ever ask for, and was key in making the weekend as perfect as it could have been. Before we even booked Batchcott, Eileen was fantastic giving us detailed information on the cottage and also recommendations on things to do near by. She even offered to sign for our Sainsbury delivery and had put it all away for us. We really appreciated this kindness, and throughout the weekend she was great with anything we needed. She had also given us a welcome basket with some wine, biscuits and coffee which was an unexpected nice surprise.
The house is absolutely incredible and the photo's really don't do it justice. It is full of character, spacious, warm and is definitely the most luxurious cottage we have stayed in, with every detail thought of. Each room is beautifully decorated and the bathrooms are amazing. It is more like a mansion than a cottage! The grounds are also fabulous with stunning views- we were lucky with the weather and made good use of the tennis courts and bbq. There are plenty of walks to do nearby with beautiful views.
Words can honestly not describe what a perfect place Batchcott is, and Eileen is the best host you could ask for. I would recommend Batchcott to anyone and we really look forward to visiting it again.
I'd like to take this opportunity again to really thank Eileen in everything she did to enable us to have a perfect weekend celebrating my husband's 70th.

“The very best!”
Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We returned to Batchcott Hall for our family get-together by unanimous agreement. This is a fantastic place for a large gathering. The reception rooms are big enough for everyone to sit down and the bedrooms are all of a generous size, though some are grander than others. Everything you can think of has been provided from luxurious bedding down to different sized tea strainers! The views are breath-taking .... And even the weather was glorious again.
I should like to thank Eileen for everything she does towards making our stay so wonderful.
