Great Place - Awful Owner
We stayed at this beautiful house over Easter. We were a party of 34 and were really happy with what we saw. Everything went downhill on the second day when a second family arrived stating that they had the place booked too. The owner was nowhere to be found and we had to work through her booking mess ourselves. The second family had to leave and have their event somewhere else with a party of 60. The owner to date refuses to take any ownership of her failure. I have never met someone so rude. Do not book this place it may be great but would hate for anyone else to go through a nasty experience of double booking.
We had booked the house and cottages for the Easter weekend to celebrate our 50th birthdays and 25th wedding anniversary. On arrival we were extremely disappointed to find that another family were in residence. The owner had double booked. We were eventually able to make contact and have since been fully refunded. Our celebration weekend was ruined. Double check your booking before making full payment!
Fantastic House and Setting- Just perfect
Booked this beautiful mansion for a week to host a party for my friends on the Saturday and Sunday. I have rented many large houses over the past 10 years and this house is perfect for entertaining on a grand scale. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and the housekeeper attended to our every need. It was clean, well equipped and in a perfectly hidden location. Somewhere you can feel private and a lord of the manor, even if only for a weekend.
30 of us rented out the hall and the cottages as part of a group holiday/ wedding celebration, and it was *amazing*. The place is just extraordinary, and the area is beautiful. We enjoyed the grounds and all the amenities - hot tub, pool, sauna, bunnies, deer park. The bedrooms are all lovely, so nobody ended up feeling short changed! The place is so big that you can lose one another; couples and small groups could spend time by themselves if they wanted, but we could all get together to eat in the dining room. I loved it, and we definitely plan on returning in the near future. Many thanks to the lovely owner and to the housekeeper for ensuring the stay went smoothly!
Absolutely Stunning Property!
WOW!!!! This place is incredibly gorgeous!!! The ultimate country house to rent for a large family or group of friends.
Myself and a group of 26 friends rented the manor and cottages over the NYE period and it was totally PERFECT for this occasion. We had a masquerade party there on NYE and it the house could not have been more ideal.
The manor comfortably slept all of us and each of the bedrooms was as lovely as the next - all different but equally special. There are so many parts of the manor to explore - the opulent dining room for large dinner parties, the downstairs "games room" with billiard table and large screen TV, the various opulent reception rooms, as well as spa and sauna rooms! It feels very secluded set amongst gorgeous grounds.
It was very easy to get to by both train and car, and the nearby town of Watton has everything you need.
Olena (the owner) was excellent throughout the booking process - so helpful and friendly. The lovely housekeeper is there if you need her but also leaves you to yourself.
I cannot recommend this place enough if you are looking for a stunning house to rent for a special occasion!
