Guestbook comments from the owner

"Gray Manes certainly exceeded our expectations. Wonderful house and location. You have thought of everything Tanya and Chris. We had a wonderful week and nobody wanted to go home."

Corp Family, Kent

"Gray Manes provided a wonderful setting for a Weekend Golden Wedding celebration. The spacious house and grounds met the varied needs of ten adults and six children ranging in age from 83 to twins of five. The outside play facilities, swimming pool and games area were extensively used by the children. Indoors there was ample room for different groups to relax. Furnishings were of the highest standard and the kitchen equipment was impressive. This was important as we were doing all our own catering – including a Saturday evening celebration meal. We enjoyed exceptional weather for early March and were able to explore some of the local countryside, including Glastonbury Tor. We thoroughly recommend Gray Manes. "

Dodwell Family, Thames Ditton

"A beautiful place in a tranquil location with superb facilities and excellently equipped. The whole family had a wonderful time - A Place to Remember."
