Lovely setting and accommodation with a BBQ, pool, hot tub, pool table, table tennis, table football; so lots to do. Owne Ab friendly and helpful. Great location with lots to do in local area as well as beautiful countryside and great local pubs. Highly recommend the Devonshire for food.
This house is the ultimate get away with a big group house. The amount of space and features available make it perfect to stay in, allowing everyone to have their own space aswell plenty of room to all be together and eat/relax/party communally. The rule of being out the hot tub and not being outside by 11pm really is not a problem as there are plenty of things to do inside after that time. It's just about simply respecting that rule which is honestly not hard in the slightest.
The pool is heated and is huge and so are the private grounds around the house for you to play games in.
The only thing I would make sure people know is to bring simple cooking components like oil, salt and pepper, butter.. because we had to buy it all when we got there.
But with 2 main ovens and a huge grill, there is so much you can do cooking wise while you're there.
Thank you Gill for the house and we will be back soon.
Upton Bourn Lodge is a wonderful place for a family get together, there were 13 of us, variety of ages from 9 to 80, celebrating my mums birthday.
Fabulous lodge, so well equipped to cater for large numbers and the beds are super comfy! Really spacious for everyone, wonderful dining/kitchen area with bi-fold doors that open out completely giving you the feeling you are outside. Plenty of seating areas and a fab table that we could all sit round. A wonderful heated pool, super private hot tub and sauna. The pool table and table football inside the Lodge was in constant use and you also have your own table tennis table outside - all excellent! The field adjacent to the Lodge for playing rounders and games is a great space too.
The owner, Gill, was so helpful before we arrived and for anything we needed whilst we were there, and a great cake to greet us, thank you!
Would highly recommend it.
Upton lodge was perfect for our big family get together. The accommodation was very clean and well equipt with every room of a good size so everyone was happy.
There is something for everyone.. hot tub, pool and sauna, a field with cricket and rounders sets to use, table tennis, great tv lounge and lovely size kitchen to fit us all in even the babies!
I would recommend Upton lodge for families and hope to return again one day.
Lots to do in the surrounding area, not that we needed to go outside the front door with a games room, table tennis, hot tub, sauna, swimming pool, croquet and a football field! Extremely well equipped kitchen for as many as you could feed! Comfortable large lounge with an abundance of games to play and a huge dining table for family meals! A warm welcome with cake and Gill was helpful both before our stay and whilst there. Couldn't ask for more. It was perfect.
What an amazing place! A fantastic getaway for a few families to meet up together. We had mor than enough space for everyone and plenty of added extras to keep us all amused. The hot tub and sauna were brilliant as was the choice of games to keep the kids busy. Would highly recommend staying here for any occasion. Thanks for a fantastic few days.
