“A wonderful house!”
Reviewed July 13, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Tone Dale House as part of a corporate event for the weekend. Anthony and the team were incredibly helpful in the lead up helping us organize a wonderful weekend. The house itself was fantastic. The house and bedrooms are very spacious, incredibly clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The house goes above and beyond to supply everything you could ever need to fully maximize enjoyment during your stay. The Big House Company should be very proud of all their hard work at Tone Dale House. We thoroughly recommend this house (and secretly wish we can visit again soon!)

“A weekend of great memories”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We visited for a long weekend with a bunch of friends and had a 40th birthday party. The house is a great space full of character - lots of space. The local ale and cider on tap when we arrived, and a couple of meals provided by the recommended caterers, all contributed to a great weekend. The house is well equipped with ample pots & pans, cups and glasses etc to accommodate a group of 30 ish. From formal dinner, to disco, to rounders, to table tennis and pool - this house has it all. Thanks to the team for helping set things up - we had a blast. Hope to return soon.

“If Carlsberg did 50th birthday weekends.........”
Reviewed March 1, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We have just come back from Tone Dale House where we celebrated my 50th birthday. What a weekend! What a place!! Right from the start Peter and Beverley did absolutely everything they could do help - from arranging our Thai Banquet - which was delicious and cooked completely from scratch on the premises - to a masseur who was brilliant - to putting our guests names on all the bedroom doors. When we arrived we were met by Anthony who was really really welcoming and informative. We were then left to party all weekend - the games room was there for the competitive among us, although i'm not sure if we managed to actually hit the ping pong ball at all, the drawing room with the roaring fire allowed us to relax during the day and then meeting there again for pre dinner champagne before starting all over again..... The party room was fantastic - it did exactly what it should!! All the bedrooms were comfortable and each had its own character, and as for the Laundry Room, well, it was exquisite. All in all, a memorable weekend with fabulous friends - all made possible by the beautiful surroundings.

“Love this house”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Tone dale house is a gorgeous big house and it was perfect for my 40th birthday party. I looked at loads of houses before deciding on Tone Dale and was delighted I chose it as it is a beautiful house, has lots of character but is also set up incredibly well for big parties. No down sides to it, everyone in our party of 19 loved it. Very highly recommended.

“Quite simply, this place is superb.”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

It is not the simplest of tasks finding accommodation for 26 people that gives ample opportunity for mingling yet lets everyone feel like they have their own space, but Tone Dale delivers on both counts. One of the stand out things for us was how well catered for everything was; ample dishwashers and fridges and all that other practical stuff. Seems a boring feature to mention but it makes the world of difference with a large group of people. Above all this though, Tone Dale is a very special place and for however long you stay you are immersed in a different world, which is both relaxing and luxurious. And the party room is a bloody nice touch too!

I cannot recommend Tone Dale highly enough along with all the team that make the booking anything but difficult.

“Romantic setting - great for wedding or anniversary celebrations”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Very Impressive house and garden with historic feel but tastefully decorated. It was a great setting for my friends' wedding celebrations. The large dining room and party room suited our needs pefectly. I slept in the Stables adjacent to the main house. It was nicely decorated with a lovely cosy bedroom. My only criticism is that the pipes made an awful noise when the tap was turned on upstairs but it was bearable for a weekend. The fridge in the Stables was also not working very efficiently which was a mild inconvenience. Despite the minor facility issues, I'd still recommend the main house for a stay with a big family of group of friends. The games room is brilliant.

Thank you for letting me know about the pipes - they have been checked out now and hopefully sorted! The fridge had been turned down to '0' so I reset it it to '6' and it is working fine. It looks like these things didn't stop you enjoying the weekend but I am so sorry you had to put up with them.
Kind regards
