Lovely house, good company and comfty beds. Fantastic time – we plan to be back xx beautiful house and surroundings. Would love to come back! LUSH!

29/7/11 Neve & Langham Family

Best week of fun we have had for a long time. House was brilliant for all the family especially the pool. Salcombe was great. I even enjoyed time with my mother in law!





Cottage Review: We named this house Filham Palace and made my mum and Dad Queen and King for the weekend (for her 80th). Perfect setting to celebrate with the family.



Cottage Review: Filham House was a delight. In over 15 years of self catering holidays we have never rented a property that actually exceded expectation. It was even better than the photos suggested and the owner was extremely helpful and friendly. We didn't want to leave on Friday and all the party want to return- and that would certainly be a first!

Beautiful property with excellent facilities - perfect for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 18 for my Sisters 50th Birthday. The property is stunning, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The grounds are beautiful with lovely walks nearby. We could not have asked for a more perfect venue

Large house on beautiful grounds

  • 3 of 5

Swimming pool and grounds were amazing! Large house which was perfect for our large group. Host very responsive! Kitchen fully stocked for our cooking needs. Kitchen at times unbearably hot with the AGA. Furniture needs a bit of updating as some items were worn and/or torn.

Long weekend at Filham House

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented Filham House over a long weekend for a family get-together. We were all blown away by the house and grounds, which were stunning. The house was immaculate and very well appointed, and we were really impressed by the standard of finish - the furniture was beautiful, the rooms were spotless and the bedrooms were amazing (especially the Louis Suite with its amazing bed and Jacuzzi bath!). The gardens were beautiful and well kept, and there was even a pair of swans swimming on the lake. It was everything we wanted and more, a stunning posh country house that we had all to ourselves! Booking was easy and the owners were lovely and very accommodating; we would not hesitate to recommend Filham House to others. Thank you for a wonderful stay, our weekend was magical.

Wow

  • 5 of 5

There were 14 of us who visited this grand country house over Easter, ranging from teenagers to middle- aged folk. We all fell in love with the house the moment we set foot in it. The lake and gardens are breathtaking beautiful. The house is clean and well-maintained. There is a large Tesco near by which we found to be convenient. Have highly recommended this lovely house to others. Hoping to return one day.

Impressive, grand,welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room throughout the house with lots of character, the children loved the freedom. We had great fun in the pool and grounds, although we're disappointed not to be able to climb the tower.

The house was well equipped, it did take a little while to get used to the aga.

The balcony in the dinning room was well used and the children's x factor performances took place there.

It was a wonderful way to celebrate mum's 60th birthday.

What a wonderful way to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. The house was exactly as advised and did not disappoint. Fabulous Dining room with wonderful food provided by the recommended caterer. Joanne and her team could not do enough for us. I hope we have the opportunity to visit again. Thank you
