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.

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.

Fabulous girls' weekend

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fabulous girls weekend at this lovely cottage. Very homely and comfortable. We really enjoyed the fire in the evenings and the stunning garden - the magnolia tree is amazing.

We enjoyed a lovely long walk to the Rose and Crown in the village - beware the local landowners though, they are not impressed if you stray - accidently - from the footpath!!!

Hoping to return for the next 40th Birthday.

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent a wonderful weekend in this lovely house. It is exactly as described, a proper family home. If you are looking for a warm, friendly and welcoming environment, then this is it. Heaven for the children and very relaxing for the adults. In fact, it was so comfortable that we barely made it out to explore the area! Just a gloriously muddy walk on footpaths from the garden and on Sunday, into the local village for a pub lunch. I have already recommended it to friends and am looking forward to finding an opportunity to go back.
