We have stayed at Batchcote, as a large group of 6 families, for four years now. The setting is second to none - the most scenic spot on the edge of the longmynd.
There are 11 children between us ranging from 1-8 years of age. The sunken trampoline, tree house, tennis courts and front lawn and gardens provide enough space to keep them all happy and safe for hours. The house is large enough to accommodate us all and gives us more than enough space.
Eileen is the most perfect house manageress. She is so helpful and goes out of her way to make sure everyone is happy. We've already booked our next get together at Batchcote for July 2018! Can't wait!
Eileen you are a jem, from the friendly initial e mails and the moment you greeted us, you made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble, and you even helped me keep it a secret from my husband.
Such a beautiful spacious house, that you can feel totally relaxed in.
We spent all day in the fabulous garden listening to music, with no worries of causing a disturbance
Thanks again and your cake was fabulous..
I just hope I can find a date in the diary to come again this year
Just had our 4th extended family stay at Batchott, as on previous visits it just fit the bill for us all, being in a perfect location (with a short walk to a great pub) fantastic facilites and absolutely perfect house manageress (Eileen). What more could you ask for.
We have already re-booked for next year and are looking forward to another great stay at this beautiful and peaceful residence. Highly recommended.
We came to stay for a family gathering which was a surprise for my partners 60th birthday. Eileen could not have been more helpful & kind, nothing was too much trouble & she did fantastic in helping us to keep it a secret!
It had everything you needed for a comfortable, homely, chill out weekend, with masses of space in the house for a large group to either prepare meals together, dine watchTV, play games or just relax. The garden was great with so many things for the children & adults to do. Our ages ranged from 6months to 60 years old & there was something for everyone. A fantastic feel to the place made even better by Eileen's attention to detail. Another bonus was the views, amazing walks up on Long Mynd & a nice local pub within walking distance. A great weekend was had by all & hopefully we will come back again in the future.
This was our 2nd time visiting Batchcott Hall. We travelled with 2 other families. The house is great for large groups as everyone has their own space. The house has a homely, country feel to it. We made use of the log burners despite having relatively good weather. The outside space meant we could play both tennis and football and the kids made use of the tree house and trampoline. There are some lovely walks and attractive towns within easy reach but most of all it's a perfect relaxing destination. We walked to the Bottle and Glass in Picklescott for a great Sunday roast. Eileen who looks after the house is incredibly welcoming and accommodating. She helped us out on a number of occasions and greeted us with cake and wine - what more do you want! We hope to return. The only thing to look out for are the steep stairs to the bedrooms on the very top floor (probably not suitable for old people or young children).
Wow! One of the best places I've ever stayed and I will be back! Stated here with a group of friends for a special birthday weekend and it was spectacular! Amazing property, spacious and comfortable and the bathrooms were soooo luxurious. For a group it's perfect and the idyllic setting is just amazing. Eileen the house manager is incredibly helpful and put our online shop away before we arrived. We felt at home straight away and the two open fires (wood included!)really helped us all to relax. We didn't want the weekend to end and I would highly recommend anyone to book this place. You will be so pleased you did, it's really special ❤
We were a group of 3 families with 8 children ranging from 1y-16yrs. When we arrived we were amazed both by the outstanding, rural peaceful location and the exceptional house. The facilities both inside and outside far exceeded out expectations. Eileen the house manager had left us gifts on arrival and even out all our food shopping delivery away, which we pre-ordered. The nearest shop is 5miles away along vey narrow lanes so 20min drive and there are no takeaway deliverys, however there is a pub 1mile away and food can be cooked for you in the house. We cooked most nights and had a bbq. We spent most of the time in the large garden with kids playing on trampoline, football, tree house and tennis court, it was perfect. The bedrooms was very large and comfortable with all ensuites. Everything you need was there, it really is a gem of a place and will most definitely be returning. Thanks very much for a fabulous stay.
