“An amazing weekend for my father's birthday”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in February 2012

We had a fantastic weekend here, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to post a review! We stayed in Feb 2012 for my father's 70th and our party included several adults, four young children and a dog. Ben the house manager greeted us on arrival having already packed away the shopping we'd arranged delivered. We took advantage of Bill the Fish and Chip man and the Bespoke catering service who provided an excellent meal along with serving our pre dinner drinks in the drawing room. The fully stocked baby station was also an added surprise! It's no surprise then that we're returning with friends in June for another visit and can't wait. Hopefully we'll be taking advantage of the pizza oven that's been installed since our last visit!

“Amazing house with everything you could wish for provided.”
Reviewed 13 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We had a great stay at Hill House. Everything you could wish for was thought of and the house manager was on hand if by any chance there was anything missing.
We arrived to two bottles of chilled champagne set out next to a roaring fire and a platter of home made cupcakes -pretty perfect start in my view. Everything in the house is finished to a very high spec and every up to the minute gadget is installed from huge tvs to the house iPad which can control music through speakers in every room downstairs. Theres a glorious Aga making the kitchen cosy on even the coldest day but there is also an electric oven and hob if you don't have much experience cooking on an Aga.
Would highly recommend having the fish and chip van call to the house if you're there on a friday. That was our arrival day and was great to not have to cook and a bit of a novelty too. The only thing that I could say was missing was a decent sharp knife in the kitchen but we have found this with every house we have ever hired! Perhaps it's an insurance thing..!
All in all would highly recommend Hill House.

“The perfect holiday house for all the family and with so much to do there was never a dull moment.”
Reviewed 4 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Hill house is the perfect place to say with friends, family and especially children. Superbly decorated the house exudes luxury with every gadget in the kitchen a cooking fan could dream of. With a beautiful garden and a fantastically equipped games room there was never a "Mummy I'm bored moment." We loved playing with all the games, had great fun making and cooking pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven and when the fish and chip van arrived the following night with the most delicious fish and chips ever, all of us were in fish heaven. We all agreed that Hill house would be brilliant to spend Christmas at. My only fear is that I can imagine you'd have to get in early to make a booking as this house is probably booked up far far in advance. We will be back. I can not recommend the house highly enough. Thank you, thank you to all who have made Hill house so very special.

“Fabulous!! Cannot be faulted. Highly recommended.”
Reviewed 19 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I returned on Monday from a fantastic long weekend staying at Hill House and really can't recommend this place highly enough. In fact, I almost don't want to write a raving review here in case it makes it more difficult for me to make a booking for our next visit!

I'm not going to go through and list all the accommodation and facilities etc in this review. There is enough about that in all the other reviews and in the information provided both on the Hill House website and on Trip Advisor. However, I will say that the website really does accurately reflect the place and there is certainly no element of disappointment in any way on arrival. The house is a joy to stay in - sufficiently luxurious to feel like you're treating yourself for the weekend, yet homely and comfortable enough that you don't feel like you can't relax.

We indulged in some of the extras on offer and would definitely do so again on a return visit. The Bespoke catering was wonderful and it was a real treat to be able to just sit back, relax and be waited on and served excellent food. The pre dinner cocktails were great fun too.

The fish and chip van was also a must and meant that we didn't have to worry about cooking on the night we arrived. So much more relaxing not to have to send people out for takeaways.

It was wonderfully indulgent to have the beautician come to the house to do treatments for the girls while the boys were off playing golf. Since we were travelling with babies it was so much easier to have the house as our base while we took turns to go and be pampered.

The babies (all 5 of them) were very well catered for, from the various cots , travel cots and highchairs that they are able to provide, to ducks for the bath and of course the complimentary baby station. Inspired. And so handy since it is so easy to forget some vital item amongst the million and one things that you pack when travelling with babies.

Thanks goes to Ben, the Manager, for looking after us so well and ensuring that our visit ran smoothly. Even down to unpacking and putting away all the groceries we had had delivered on the day of our arrival. It was great to know that he was on hand to assist with any queries or issues we may have. Not that we had any!

So looking forward to going back again. We might try to borrow a dog or two for our next visit, since the dog room was seriously cute and it seemed a shame not to make use of it.

“A perfect venue to celebrate a special occasion with friends and family.”
Reviewed 18 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Hill House was a fab venue for 3 generations to celebrate a Grandpa's 80th. We were really well looked after and they had thought of everything - from little bowls of m & m's hidden around the house to a vast choice of treats for the dogs. The games room was a particular hit with the kids. Plus it had all the technology you could wish for. We generally self catered - the kids made home made pizzas in the outdoor bread oven and we had a wonderful bespoke meal catered for by the Hill House team. If I could add anything a swimming pool would be good! Thank you to the team at Hill House for making us feel so welcome.
