We spent a fabulous weekend at Hopton Lodge celebrating my daughter’s 21st with friends and family. There were rooms for everyone and enough bathrooms for all the girls to get ready. We were able to have a casual lunch at the kitchen table and then do cake, champagne and nibbles etc in the main living room. I also spent a lovely quiet hour in the smaller living room while the youngsters chatted in the other room. The house worked so well for the different generations, a big brunch the next morning was prepared in the kitchen and I was grateful for the 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers and three fridges! But it was all so well equipped with enough glass, crockery and cutlery so I didn’t have to keep washing up. The bedrooms and beds were all comfortable and we all had towels. It is well heated (we were there in Feb) which was important as there are very high ceilings and houses like that can get cold. But it was not. The house itself is beautifully decorated and is comfortable and stylish. Having said that we all felt very at ease as it is also homely.
The check-in was easy and also having on the drive parking was a massive plus. We ate out that evening, but I can imagine a wonderful dinner party could take pace there as well. The table probably seats 20. All in all it was the perfect property for our event and I would definitely rent the house again if I had the occasion to do so. Thanks very much to the hosts - all questions were answered promptly and fully. I can’t recommend this place highly enough.
Amazing stay for a hen do, we had a private chef come and cook us dinner and the place was just perfect! It is absolutely beautiful and spotless, highly recommend for big groups!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your lovely review.

I had booked a property through another popular site that was cancelled at the last minute. In a panic, I found this place and it could not have worked out more perfect! The property is stunning (lots of amazing opportunities for gorgeous photographs). I had arranged a murder mystery party for my sister's hen do that was accompanied with multiple food courses. I was worried about crockery, dishes. utensils etc. but I need not have been; there is multiples of every possible glass etc. and two dishwashers as well as fridges! The owners were excellent with replying to messages and easing my anxiety given what had happened regarding the original property I had booked. The check in process was really easy. It was also really handy to have a drive way (which not many large bookable properties in London have). I'd love to stay over and over again.
Huge property which was absolutely stunning inside. The interior design was incredible. I hired the house for one night for a posh hen party and everyone was blown away by the place. Extremely well equipped kitchen. Would definitely stay again.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again!

An amazing place to stay close to the center
We spent a weekend with friends, 13 in total. We had such good time. The place is perfect, enough bedrooms to share, big living room and kitchen. We even spent the second night in the kitchen instead of going out, we loved it. Nice garden, beautiful decoration, all perfect!!!
Amazing beautiful house, will not disappoint
I rented this house with a group of 15 friends for a hen do. Every one of us absolutely loved the house and thought it was a perfect setting for a stylish and classy event. We had 24 hours in the house and loved every minute, the decor is very contemporary shabby chic, pretty much everything you'd expect from a White Company photo shoot but in a lovely relaxed comfortable way. I know every single person in our group would thoroughly recommend it and we hope to visit again.
