“Making Family Memories in great style at The Hyde”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I found the Hyde in an article in the Saturday Times Weekend with its rambling wisteria-clad house and steam train with red carriages. I was hooked. I booked it for Whitsun. I'd been wanting to make memories for our 5 grandchildren of their grandfather who has cancer and this seemed a perfect place.
We are a family of 11 including the grandchildren 10, 8, 5, 5 and 3. We fitted comfortably and in style into The Hyde. I think it suits a family best and we chose to self cater. We loved exploring and choosing our bedrooms, and the restoration of the old house was fascinating. We lived in the kitchen and the snug mostly, and grownups escaped into the lovely bright and comfortable drawing room to read quietly. However, it was easy to imagine a celebration weekend with friends gathered round the large formal dining room.
The garden was in spring bloom. The maze was a delightful surprise for the kids and the tree house with its views. The two older boys played tennis for hours with the grown ups, and the 2 Dads had their usual competitively serious game of tennis.. We had great weather and a BBQ lunch sitting in the garden on Saturday. The kids were waiting for Sunday when we'd booked the train. What a delightful experience it was, chatting with our engine driver and his lovely fellow train enthusiasts whilst they prepared the train with our anticipation mounting. We climbed into the red carriages and set off down the track round the fields, under bridges, through tunnels to visit the little castle and its dungeon for blood curdling cries from a Dad, later some climbed into the caves for a better look. It was such fun and so much enjoyed by us all.
We had the most wonderful time together, so special, and a few weeks later one of my sons presented me with a photo album of our lovely stay so we'll never forget.

“Spectacular. Cant wait to go back!”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We booked the Hyde for my sisters 30th birthday with our big extended family all attening. We dtsyed there at the end of Janruary and just had the most wonderful time. The houses were just stunning with original features, decorated beautifully and spotlessly clean. The house owner popped over to check we had everything we needed and to say hello which was great. I would not hesitate in anyway reccommending this property to anyone. The only problem I am having now is getting all the family together again for a long weekend! The train ride is a must!!!!!!

“Absolutely stunning!”
Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Absolutely stunning, we couldn't have had a more amazing and comfortable stay at The Hyde! Beautifully decorated with all the finishing touches and everything you could ever possibly need, it really is the PERFECT location for any occasion! We stayed for a big family get together and were 20 in total with adults and small ones - it catered perfectly for us all. We stayed in the main house (fantastic) and the cottage (beautiful) and made the most of cooking in the large and very sociable kitchen, relaxing in the conservatory (very spacious and bright), playing tennis, enjoying the maze, playing ping pong, clay pigeon shooting and going on some lovely walks. The house and grounds couldn't more be fantastic and we have all said we will absolutely recommend without a moment's hesitation!!
In addition to this, in the lead up to and indeed during our stay we found Peta and her team to be extremely friendly, very accommodating and extremely helpful with all elements of our booking. Along with an incredible house they couldn't be a more lovely team! Which reminds me I almost forgot the lovely welcome basket of goodies and delicious cake we received on arrival! It really is out of this world and all combined made for a highly enjoyable and unforgettable weekend away!

“Gloriously comfortable large holiday house nestling in the heart of one of the loveliest parts of England”
Reviewed 6 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We were all, without exception extremely comfortable at The Hyde and very much appreciated both the high standards of luxury as well as the blissful location offering total privacy. The house has been carefully renovated by the owner showing wonderful attention to detail as well as their own individual style. We look forward to organising our return visit soon with the charming owners.

“Immaculate property with incredibly accommodating team”
Reviewed 16 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a wonderful time during our three nights at The Hyde. The house and surrounding property are beautiful and incredibly well maintained. Peta and her team were very accommodating and we wanted for nothing the whole weekend.
