Terrific Great Tangly Manor!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of spending a weekend at this amazing property - it was perfect! We were 10 friends that decided to go somewhere special and our choice could not have been better.

We loved the gardens, the moat, and every inch of the fabulous house. The kitchen and dining room is well equipped and perfect for entertaining.

The property manager provided superb customer service - every question answered and all our needs catered for.

I would recommend this very reasonably priced property as a fantastic getaway for anyone, and I cant wait to go there myself again.

A stunning 11th Century Manor House

  • 5 of 5

We were stunned by this impressive 11th century Manor House. It was certainly more than we had anticipated. The house was warm and comfortable and it felt like home. We were all able to relax and enjoy the weekend of celebrations. A truly wonderful experience and we all had a splendid meal on the Saturday evening provided by the caterers. Thank you for making the weekend so memorable.

Stunning property for a birthday of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Frankly, words fail me...it was an honour and a privilege to turn 40 at Tangley, joining an impressive list of historic figures that preceded us. Tangley is stunning, a great place to go back in time whilst having all the modern conveniences you'd ever need. Thank you Nicho for making us so welcome and filling us in on the history of the place, it felt very special. Karen (Birthday Girl, Easter 2015)

Amazing house and wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

Great Tangley Manor is a wonderful house with great facilities. We all had a fantastic stay, everyone was impressed, the photos do not capture the true beauty and atmosphere this place has. The people at GTM couldn't do more to accommodate our requirements, having additional guests for a day. The people were lovely and so helpful. Would highly recommend this as a holiday house for anyone!

60th Birthday Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A very enjoyable weekend at Great Tangley Manor with the family, celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. The house is exactly as described. Very spacious, very clean, superbly equipped for a large gathering and extremely comfortable. I can't think of anything it doesn't have that you could want. The grounds are beautiful too and the swimming pool is large for a private pool and reasonably warm. The grandchildren loved it and our son and daughter in law played tennis and gave the court the thumbs up. The house is so close to civilisation yet feels in the heart of the countryside, so it was perfectly situated for our family to get together in nice surroundings without anyone having to travel very far from London.

I would recommend this house as being just the ticket for a gathering of any age group. There is so much space in every room that you can't possibly get on top of each other. All of our children agreed that it was far and away the best house that has ever been hired by our family, and we have hired quite a few! It was a shame not to have met Nicho, due to his being away on annual leave, because everyone raves about him in the reviews. But he was very helpful in the first instance of making sure our needs were met by providing extra beds for children. Maybe next time....

Family Christmas at Great Tangley Manor

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Great Tangley Manor for 5 days over Christmas having flown in our children and grandchildren from Australia, Thailand and the USA - a total of 9 adults, 3 young children and 1 infant. The property is absolutely amazing, very clean and beautifully maintained. Nicho, the manager, was extremely helpful in accommodating our two preview visits and facilitating our moving in. The history of the property is fascinating and one can almost feel the presence of King John (with a wench from the village!) and other royalty who have stayed there and having Christmas dinner in the incredible dining room was a wonderful experience. The grandchildren loved the indoor swimming pool and some of the more energetic ones among us made use of the tennis court. The living rooms, bedrooms and kitchen are very spacious and all very well appointed.

All in all, the perfect venue for our family reunion and we would highly recommend Great Tangley Manor.

All in all the perfect venue for our family reunion
