Beautiful house, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Stretton for our daughters wedding in Derby. All our wedding preparations were done on the morning of the wedding, hair and makeup, and the wedding cars took us to the venue from Stretton. We are a large family and once a year we rent a large property for a weekend. Everywhere and everything is beautiful, the kitchens are really well equipped and we catered for ourselves all weekend. The house made a perfect day into a perfect weekend, helped by the weather being very kind to us. I sincerely hope we will stay at Stretton again.

Perfect Place to Spoil Your Friends!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at Stretton House with a group of our closest friends - 24 in all - mostly adults but with a couple of children in the mix.

We were incredibly lucky with the weather and spent pretty much the whole 48 hours relaxing in the garden and enjoying the wonderful outdoor dining area.

Despite being a large group, everyone had plenty of space and nobody felt compromised in terms of their sleeping arrangements - which is rare for these sorts of party houses - we looked at a lot before landing on Stretton!

Facilities were amazing - everything you could want catered for - and we were also put in touch with some great suppliers who provided extra treats for our guests, like a barman and outside catering for a delicious barbecue.

Stretton was also perfect because we had guests coming from as far flung as Belfast, Edinburgh, Sussex and Cambridge. Accessible to all within a reasonable travelling distance.

All our guests were massively impressed by Stretton and many mentioned booking themselves in the future. We may even all be back together at some point!

Thank you Dena!

An experience like no other

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 28 adults and kids, who meet every couple of years so have tried many different places, none have been better or felt more like a home than Stretton House.

The first day or so was spent working out how to navigate the house and grounds and getting lost in what each area has to offer.

Lots of amenities were a short drive and entertainment is available if you ever desire to leave the house.

We immediately rebooked and will back year after year.

A DREAM - don't look anywhere else

  • 5 of 5

Stretton House is absolutely amazing and if we could give it 10 stars we absolutely would. The grounds are stunning. The bedrooms are all just so lovely which is rare for a house of this size and the JSG and Dorm are absolutely incredible. We stayed at the house during our wedding weekend and it made our celebration - Dena and Andrew were amazing and left us a hamper of goodies which was so kind of them. I really can't say enough positive things about the house and I can't wait to return. All of us felt the same. Don't hesitate to book - it is so worth it! Amanda and Mark.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Stretton House is a fabulous retreat for a large group of friends or family. We booked this break for a friends special birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect. The grounds and terrace are ideal if the weather is fine. BBQ and outdoor games are provided. If the weather is not so good the conservatory acts as the great outdoors! There is also an indoor cinema room with a large collection of DVD's to choose from. We booked Strand Catering for our evening meal on Saturday who we highly recommend. There are many attractions close by but the venue has so much to offer, once past the electric gates there's no need to venture any further. We loved it so much we've already booked again for next year.
