Fantastic short stay

  • 5 of 5

We are 2 families that just wanted a few days away together. Somewhere big enough for all the kids to run around and for our doggie to join in too. Well we weren't disappointed with the garden. Fresh air and lots of space. The house was equally as spacious and we all soon found places to sit and chat or play. We all slept well in comfortable beds and enjoyed a trip to the local quaint high street for some supplies.

We had one problem with heating which was sorted by a Plummer in super speedy time. The quickest I've ever known a plumber to arrive!

The house is a clean and well maintained considering it's age. A fantastic place to stay and look forward to visiting again. Highly recommend.

Fantastic family Christmas here

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 2 Christmas's here with our extended family and love it! The house is super comfy and wraps itself around you. It is warm and cosy and the fire in the inglenook is always popular. The table tennis tournaments have become a bit of a family tradition! Great house for us to stay in for our family who live in Sussex when we come up from Cornwall. We are hoping to be able to book it again for Christmas 2017!

Beautiful, peaceful family home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Bibleham. The garden was spectacular with all the rhododendrons and azaleas out. There was plenty of room for the whole family and so much cutlery and crockery. Beds were very comfortable but low beams caught us out several times!

Thank you for providing a travel cot.

The house was a great base for the family to get to a wedding nearby.

We enjoyed the pool and the trampoline and the wonderful views. It was such a peaceful place to be.

A beautifull period property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend here in a large group. The house is beautifull and has such charm and period features. We enjoyed open fires and group meals around the large dinning table. We were also lucky enough to spend substantial time outside in the huge garden which just made the weekend even more special. It's perfect for a BBQ!

Beautiful country escape

  • 4 of 5

We spent a long weekend here with friends and had a fantastic time. There is loads to do outdoors if the weather is good, including spending time is the huge garden. At night we enjoyed sitting round the fire or popping into the local town for a few drinks. The house has retained all of its original charm whilst having all necessary modern amenities. Would throughly recommend for a fun, relaxing weekend away.

Sublime

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house, wonderful garden, wonderful weather and great walks. The house, garden and surrounding area were a joy to explore and I would recommend a stay here for anyone wanting to unwind, relax and enjoy a bit of table tennis or indeed a bounce on the trampoline.
