                                                        Magical historic property

                                                        Brad K.

                                                        Two families had a fantastic weekend at this magical historic property. Enormous garden that we enjoyed despite the blizzard conditions! Great pub in the nearby village.

                                                        Great place for family vacation.

                                                        Gabriela E.Altadena, CA

                                                        We spent a week at Bibleham and it was gorgeous! A perfect location for 4 adults, 2 toddlers and a baby. The kids loved playing in the garden and the pool was perfect for the warm weather. The outdoor grill allowed us to dine al fresco. You do need a car as it is not walking distance to the High Street. It was a great place for us to have a family vacation. The only thing we can really complain about is the wi-fi. It is extremely limited and that was a bit difficult for us as we travelled from the States and Australia. It was needed for purposes of talking to family and checking in with work on things and the limited wi-fi made it diffcult to do so. Otherwise, everything was great.

                                                        A lovely place to be

                                                        Graeme T.

                                                        Enabled us to have a peaceful time with family and friends. Excellent accommodation and equipment in a beautiful setting.

                                                        Always wonderful

                                                        Hollie F.

                                                        We have stayed at Bibleham before and this visit did not fail to disappoint. The gardens were looking particularly beautiful during our visit.

                                                        Beautiful home and garden in stunning countryside.

                                                        Abigail D.

                                                        We couldn't have asked for more from the property. The location is gorgeous and the local walks were great for our group. The kids enjoyed all the sports equipment (croquet, badminton, table tennis, pool table, swings, trampoline....). A fantastic weekend.

                                                        A relaxing, big house with great views

                                                        Baz S.

                                                        We had a wonderful stay at Bibleham, the property is extremely quaint and has lots of rustic rooms and low beams. The living space is huge and there are two separate living rooms making it great for people who want to do their own thing. We want to come back in the Summer, although there were lots to do while we were there (ping pong, pool table, sitting by the fire, badminton) having use of the swimming pool and warmer weather will be the cherry on the cake.

                                                        Thanks for having us and making it a great stay!
