Beautiful home and garden in stunning countryside.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
