Self-Catering Reviews

November 2021
Absolutely fantastic holiday weekend with all the family. Beautiful gardens, pool warm and fantastically clean, equipped brilliantly. Large tvs Recliner sofas Woodburner fireplace Radios and speakers Sauna working brilliantly Pool clean Gardens breathtaking Little play area outside for the kids House and annexe lovely and warm Anything you needed in the kitchen was there Couldn't have asked for a better experience
June 2021
This house is well situated in its well kept gardens and many seating areas to chill with family both during the day and evening, big enough for children to run around and play around in. Nice little park at the bottom of the garden also. The pool is a great size and well maintained and very clean.{ shame the pump broke and we had no heat in it for four days of our stay} but the keeper sorted the problem the day before we left and it needed 24hrs to heat back up as it is a large pool. Sauna was great left you feeling totally cleansed. Everything you needed was all provide within the home. Just need your own towels for the pool area. The one main problem was that the wifi did not reach to the anix rooms at all. Beautiful views not far from supermarkets, nice food at the pub down the road. I would suggest going to see Puzzlewood only about 40 minutes drive away. It was a pleasure staying at this lovely country home. Enjoyed our times with 12 adults and 10 children Greeat time

The property was excellent.. It was immaculate and was everything that I had hoped for. My family (those of us who were able to go due to Covid restrictions) were all delighted with the property. The contact that I had with the owners was positive and pleasant. Whilst the property lived up to all expectations I am afraid to say that your approach to customer service was an absolute disgrace. You were quick enough to take my money both for the deposit, interim payments and the final payment but when it came to my needing help and assistance from you when the Government, 5 days before the start of the holiday, altered the criteria for holidays such as this you 'went missing'. I spent 90 minutes in total trying to contact your customer services. I sent an e-mail to your customer services on the 4th August explaining my problems. It is now 22nd August and I am still waiting for a response from you to that e-mail. I sent a further e-mail to you the following day after I had spoken to the owners of the property who, unlike yourselves, were most helpful. Yet again I await a reply from you. You did not have the decency to acknowledge either of these e-mails let alone answer my queries from the first one. I have severe reservations about using your company again for future holidays and based on my experience of your customer service I have no intention of recommending you to anybody.

Excellent property with an amazing amount of space.. Extremely well equipped. Lovely location. However, Sykes information on the property is not entirely accurate. For example , there is no longer a Jacuzzi and there is no bike storage which was a problem considering that family members brought bikes. Also six acres of land consisted of about one acre for us to use, the remaining five acres were inhabited by sheep. Therefore some information regarding the property is inaccurate and needs updating. I did notice that a previous review had mentioned the lack of the Jacuzzi!

Advertised as having a jacuzzi and a sauna .... Advertised as having a jacuzzi and a sauna The jacuzzi has been taken out and no longer exists and the sauna was not working
Mrs Bennett, July 2020
December 2019
The range of receiption and leasure facilities was excellent and the pool complex in particular was a great success It is difficult to imagine a set up more ideally suited to a family gathering covering ages from 4 to 80.. Noise from road disturbed some of those with rooms effected. The size and number of towels were indequate, especially given that the swimming pool was a key feature. We could not get our heating to work but we were the only one effected,

Without Doubt the indoor pool was a big plus at the time of year we went,

My wife and I arrived on the 7th June 2019 to prepare for other family members arriving to help us celebrate our 45th anniversary. We were met by Pat who was brilliant in explaining everything about the house / pool etc. She ensured that we had her contact number in case of assistance. The weather could have been better in June but the wonderful indoor pool took away the disappointment in not being able to have a BBQ / play in the garden etc. The actual facilities in the property were 100% - They have thought of everything to assist in making certain you can entertain properly ie - serving dishes / glasses etc etc etc. Nothing has been left to chance. The other beauty is the 2 dishwashers to cater for the amount of people that could be in the house. We were a party of 13 aged between 3 years and 73 years therefore we had more than enough space for everyone. On our final day, Pat was there to ensure everything had gone well. We never felt rushed to leave, albeit we were ready as we knew that the house had to be vacated by 10am. If you have a large party to cater for, this is the house to do it. Clean / bright and quiet with the added attraction of the indoor pool and games room (complete with a beer fridge! your own beer of course!) All we can say on behalf of our family - thank you!

Excellent property with great facilities for large families.. Really enjoyed our stay.
Mr Trotter
February 2019
I booked this for a 50th birthday party weekend with 23 people staying overall, but booked it for the whole week for those who wanted to stay on.. The bedroom setup was perfect for our group and the facilities in the house were just what we needed. The pool, suana and jacuzzi were well used by all, as was the games room pool table. The large lounge was perfect for after dinner entertainments, for which we had a magician come in to perform, with plenty of room for all the guests to gather round. We had caterers come in to provide and serve us the birthday dinner, rather than going out on a cold and windy February evening, and this was again the perfect venue for it. Those who left after the weekend were wishing they were able to stay, and very envious of those of us who did. A great venue which has given us many memories which we will never forget. Highly recommended.

It was a lovely house & grounds, swimming was excellent
Mrs Miles

We had a fantastic time over the Christmas period, celebrating my husbands bigish birthday.. There were 14 of us and we thought the property was perfect for our needs. loved the swimming pool. the property was clean and tidy, very pleased. The owners were very helpful and polite. thank you.
November 2018
We and several other couples rented The Croft for one of our periodic reunions (and had an absolutely splendid time!). The house and setting are lovely, and the surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful. The pool is a decent size and the jacuzzi and sauna a real bonus. Where I agree with some other reviews is that the splendor of the house and grounds is at risk of being somewhat diminished by a lack of attention to small but important details. The two TVs are decent (but not smart so basic freeview channels only and no streaming) but the DVD players were ancient, poorly setup (SCART cables in 2018?) and faulty. I think I was probably the first person in years to change the batteries in the non-functioning remote for one of them judging by the state of the old batteries but even then the player was still temperamental. There was no mesh/wi-fi repeaters so most of the house/site had no wi-fi coverage. This would always be an issue in todays connected world but given that there is absolutely no 3/4G and barely any phone signal in the location it was a real headache. Most of the bathrooms had small patches of mould in the shower enclosures some of which had seen better days. Other less significant issues still niggled. There were unused picture hooks on bare walls which was a tad strange, quite a few light bulbs were missing, towels supplied were small and poor quality. The pool room was great fun but only had two usable cues (even they had dodgy tips) and no rests. Jacuzzi instructions were scrawled on a piece of paper and sellotaped to the window etc. Not earth-shattering but a bit at odds with the high quality of the house itself. As I have said, we had a great time at The Croft (and I'm sure we'll be back!) but 1 weeks rental spent on a bit of maintenance and upkeep and a bit of investment in a few technical upgrades (you can buy a couple of decent smart Blu-ray players and fit mesh wi-fi across the site for about £500) would make a real difference and do the wonderful house and grounds justice and make The Croft a definite 5 star experience.

Loverly house we all had fantastic there
Mrs Smith

The cottage was more than ample for everyone there.. All the beds were really comfortable and we were pleasantly surprised at how well equipped the cottage was. Would definitely come back again.
Mrs Taylor
October 2018
Wonderful environment, views, pool complex superb.. Well equipped and comfortable. I think that the main house is of a higher standard than the annex re noise from traffic, plumbing and floor boards. We did have considerable problems with plumbing in Annex and locking arrangements all of which I am assured will be dealt with. The house is on the corner of 2 surprisingly busy roads which perhaps could be mentioned in the website. Altogether we had a wonderful 4 nights in a beautiful house in a fabulous part of the world.
Mr Crutchley
October 2018
The amount and variety of walks around the house are way understated, to the disadvantage of further adding to the attraction of the house.. Although there are a couple in the box folder provided in the kitchen they are just the tip of the iceberg. For instance our group had a lovely walk from the path that starts right outside the house, up the hill and across and in a large circle that brought us out by Polston farm (something like that) less than half a mile away from the house. There are loads like this as there are footpaths and bridleways everywhere. Other than this the house actually exceeded our expectations and we (especially the kids) were sad to leave.
Mr Brown

Had an amazing time.. The Aga made the kitchen really cosy. Had everything we needed.
Mrs Blissett
October 2018
2nd visit to the Croft.. Works well for our family get together. Only problem we had this time was that the annexe had a few problems with noise from the plumbing and floorboards, if they could sort that, it would be perfect. Would definitely go again, beautiful area. Swimming pool a great hit
Mrs Corcoran
September 2018
Arrival and departure: Having travelled over 4 hours by road and arriving at around 14.. 30/14.45 (arrival time quoted as 15.00), it was very disappointing to be greeted with - 'you're early'. We weren't trying to get into the property but just park the car. And our departure time was 10am (quite early enough) but the cleaning team arrived just after 9am and whilst they didn't come into the house, they were in and out of the swimming pool and grounds. Not a comfortable feeling. Having said that the house was well equipped and welcoming, with only minor niggles The swimming pool and sauna were a delight and the area is absolutely fabulous. I personally would have no hesitation in returning
Ms Saggers
August 2018
Our only complaint would be the early arrival of quite a few cleaners/gardeners on departure day.. It felt as if we were in the way and quite harassed to leave. Men strolling around the site, women waiting to get on with the job...not a nice feeling. We were asked to leave by ten and we were. We didnt need the intimidation of these people. Kind of sullied the holiday, which is a shame.
Mrs Pavitt
July 2018
Extremely well equipped kitchen.. ..Swimming pool was loved by the children with lots of garden space for them to run around in... highly recommend for families.
Mrs Luxton

The holiday experience was amazing.. The house was more than expected, the facilities were perfect and the house had everything we needed. People we met to do with the house were so kind and helpful. Sykes were great to deal with very polite , efficient and helpful. Amazing holiday house .

Mrs Frost

The Croft was a fabulous venue to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday with our large family.. The facilities were great and we had an amazing time using the pool, games room and all the 11 bedrooms. The owner met us at the property and was very helpful. A great occasion at a wonderful party house.
Miss Streeter

Mrs Mobey
December 2017
We are a large group of 23 who meet every year at this time.. The highlight of our weekends is always a celebratory meal together. The dining room was large, but large chairs around a large U-shaped table did not allow proper access for those on the outside of the U. We ended up crawling under the table to get in or out, which was a problem.
Peter E
October 2017
Overall a really nice family location with fabulous pool, sauna, gym, jacuzzi and I would definitely recommend it and go again. The main building is nicely decorated with a huge TV in the living room, a large kitchen with Aga, separate cooker and 2 dishwashers! There were a couple of niggly things that needed sorting out like the broadband not working (wouldn't have bothered packing my laptop if I'd known), the shower tray waste in my room was either blocked or not sufficient for the high water pressure and filled ankle deep, a few of the showers seemed a bit temperamental I'm told, one had a leak. The extractor fan didn't work either in the Jack and Jill bathroom. Just a little bit of maintenance would have made this 5 star.
Geoffrey H
August 2017
This is a huge house in a beautiful position. There were 20+ of the family aged 13 to 80 years and we all had a great time, swimming ( good size), jaccusi, sauna, exercise gym, pool table, large lawns, with games, all in first class condition. Fully equipped large kitchen, large dining room, comfortable lounges. Everything you could need for a large group. We had a fantastic time and are considering booking again for the next big family DO in 2020.

I would suggest a floor plan for the properties so it's easier to allocate bedrooms for big parties before you get there..
Mr Herbert

The plumbing in the main house needs some attention.. The toilet in our room didnt flush well and the shower had little pressure and often stopped completely mid-shower.
Mrs Granger

Fantastic property good location too , had everything we needed and the pool was a perfect temperature too.
Mrs Doherty

The space at The Croft was excellent. All of the rooms were used, we all loved the house, but the pool, hot tub and sauna made this family break a real treat. We all had a great time and want to return!
Mrs Edwards
December 2015
Although I would recommend it to anyone, we loved it so much we wished it could be our best kept secret to ensure availability for us. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the owner we felt at home. The Croft is in a beautiful setting and the house did not disappoint. It was well equipped with everything we could possibly need for a large family gathering. The pool house was the icing on a very scrumptious cake.
Mrs Mee
November 2015
Fab house for family and friends. Lots of nice crockery and plenty of it. The pool area s well maintained. I would definitely recommend this property.
Mrs Johnson
November 2015
The Croft was fantastic, and easily accommodated our family party of 24 (all ages) with plenty of space for everyone. Catering was easy with the size of the kitchen and storage space. Everyone loved the pool area which was kept spotlessly clean and the generous size meant that lots of the family could go in together. The owner was very approachable and always on hand for queries. We all had a wonderful time!

An amazing house that felt like home.The grounds,swimming pool etc an added bonus which meant if you didn't want to go further afield there was no need.When we could drag ourselves away from the house there were many lovely places to visit.The more energetic of our family went canoeing and walking.Us older ones settled for the easy option ---- a trip on a steam train.
Mr Cunningham
September 2015
The house was exceptionally well equipped and the garden beautiful with amazing views. When we could drag ourselves away from the house there were some lovely places to visit not too far away.
Ms Hylton
July 2015
It was spacious, comfortable and well-equipped, a home with all the bells and whistles. The garden and general surroundings are stunningly beautiful. The extensive patio off the indoor pool is perfect for outdoor entertaining and a dining room that comfortably sits 24 made indoor entertaining easy.
Mrs Loughran
June 2015
The house was beautiful, and the pool made the holiday for everyone. We were a party of 24, ranging from 3 to 83yrs celebrating a 70th birthday and the house was a perfect spot to do this, it had lots of space, never felt cramped and there was always somewhere to find a bit of peace. Would book again.
Mrs Pearce
May 2015
This house was brilliant for us. There was more than enough room for everyone. We particularly loved the swimming pool, it was warm and the kids couldn't wait to get in there every morning!
Ms Lamb
April 2015
The house was excellent for a large gathering of friends and family where it was really useful to have lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was great and the big dining room made the event really special. The setting is beautiful and we wanted good walks which we found easily straight from the house as well as in the area of course. The swimming pool was really great, a good size, very clean and well maintained which the whole party enjoyed it. We were a very mixed group with ages from 22 months to 86 years and every one enjoyed the week. Good weather allowed us to sit on the patio, just perfect for a special birthday week.
Miss Bidwell
March 2015
In a wonderful location and the house was cosy, comfortable and warm. The facilities were excellent; the pool, sauna, hot tub and games room were excellent fun for all ages in our party. Can't wait to have an excuse to return.
March 2015
The swimming pool is fantastic. Everything about this house is brilliant. It is a wonderful property which is well equipped and had loads of room for everyone. I would recommend this holiday home and give it a ten out of ten rating.
Mrs Nile
March 2015
The house was spacious and well laid out with lovely bedrooms. The pool area was lovely, clean and welcoming. The kitchen and lounge spaces were perfect for a large group. Lovely surroundings for walking. The housekeeper was very friendly, showed us around and showed us how to work everything. A fantastic house to have a group celebration, we were there for a 50th party and everyone agrees the house was perfect. I would highly recommend!

What an amazing house, from the start with Sykes who we booked it through, to Juliia the daughter of the owner and Pat, who couldn't have been more helpful! Thank you! Xx The house was beautifully decorated in a xmas style. We had a wonderful Xmas with friends, turkey and all the trimmings! The house is very well equipped, the swimming pool is a bonus. The area around is stunning, Hay and Ross on Wye, Abergevenny is a must. Would nightly recommend! Thank you again for a magical time! Tina & friends from The Northampton Volleyball Club.

We had a great time. This is the fifteenth year that the 16 of use have been away together in the UK and we have not found a better property. We tried to book for next year - no luck!
Mr Stanford
October 2014
Property was very clean, tidy and warm. Cooking and dining facilities were excellent. All 18 of us loved the garden, swimming pool and one evening we enjoyed an excellent BBQ. The leader of the cleaning team could not have been more helpful and the owner recommended two excellent places to eat, especially 'Food for Thought' at Peterchurch. We spent each day out walking in the truly beautiful countryside with its unusual and distinctive churches. Do not miss Arthur's Stone, a 5,000 year old burial chamber near Dorstone.
Mr White
October 2014
I thought that the venue was perfect for our large family weekend gathering. Both the adults and the children made the best of the more-than-adequate facilities, and the extensive gardens and the pool, with its jacuzzi and sauna, were a real bonus. We will certainly consider The Croft for a future gathering.
Mrs Prestage

We loved every aspect of our holiday. The pool area is brilliant. We will definitely be coming here again.

August 2014
I have just returned from a family holiday at The Croft. Large house, enough room for our family of 23. However, so many flies in and around the house, made it very difficult when cooking and preparing food. The 2 main windows in the kitchen did not open, we understood we were in a rural location near to a farm, however, flie screens would of helped matters. 1 shower in the en-suite did not work, broken paving slabs on the patio, no towels or bin liners in rooms and bathrooms on arrival, we also had to wash patio furniture as it was very dirty on our arrival. Swimming pool was great but, sauna had a broken seat with nails showing, this had to be fixed during our stay. Bedroom with 3 single beds was shared by 3 young girls, the window was held open by a small bin. I would recommend this house rental, but improvements need to be made.
Miss Holdsworth
June 2014
The swimming pool was amazing, we loved going in the jacuzzi and sauna and waking up to the spectacular view of the countryside! The grounds of the house were perfect for a big BBQ in the sunshine!
Mr Smith

It is ideal for our annual family get together. Great facilities for both adults and children (indoor swimming pool, games room, sauna and jacuzzi, lovely setting). We have been there three times now and all the family love it.
Mr Rose
May 2014
What can I say, The Croft was better than I could have imagined. The party of 21 adults and one very well behaved baby could not have wished for better accommodation. The Croft was situated in the most beautiful of countryside,it was stunning. We were made very welcome by the caretaker, she showed us around the property, instructing us on all necessary appliances. All facilities; games room, reception rooms, pool, in fact everything was there for us to enjoy. For those wishing to have a holiday for a large party I would strongly recommended The Croft. Book early otherwise you will be disappointed.
Mrs Westcott

Very lucky with weather so able to enjoy the grounds, playing garden games and drinks on the terrace! The surrounding countryside is beautiful. Plenty of room so don't feel crowded even as part of a large family gathering.
Mrs Tidd
March 2014
We had a wonderful 50th Birthday party for a range of family and friends, from baby and toddler to grandparents. The bedlinen is lovely, the dining room nice - large enough for 24 or us. Everything was spotless, we will definitely visit again. Thanks.
March 2014
I took my family away to the Croft for my 50th birthday and it could not have been a better celebration, there were 21 of us but the house easily accommodated 24. The house was perfect and the owner popped in to see us to show us around and made us feel that it was our home for the duration. The swimming pool, Sauna, pool room and gym made such a difference especially for the time of year we were there January. Everything was clean and comfortable and I cannot recommend this house for a gathering of family & friends more, absolutely wonderful!
Mrs Dawson
February 2014
What a fabulous house, just perfect for my 50th birthday celebrations with my family. The spa was excellent. We would definetely book to come back here again.
Mrs Bowdler
February 2014
The accommodation was excellent, the kitchen was fully equipped to cater for a very large party and the pool was amazing - much bigger than expected! The children were fully occupied between the pool, the game room and their own lounge, leaving the adults able to fully relax and enjoy the weekend. Superb accommodation and we will be coming back!
February 2014
This really is a fabulous house, plenty of room for celebrating. Loved everything the house had to offer especially the Spa. My family and I would definately return.
Ms Warboys
January 2014
We loved the way we were made to feel so comfortable welcome at The Croft. We were able to treat the house as our own which was fantastic for my celebratory 50th birthday. I had invited 20 family friends and everyone has come away relaxed and with great memories. The owner and housekeeper were fantastic; should we need to know anything they were at the end of the phone. The house is beautiful with a fantastic kitchen which made catering for so many a pleasure. The icing on the cake has to be the wonderful swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna which were all kept wonderfully clean and excellent condition and the games room kept the men occupied for hours!!
January 2014
This was our second stay at The Croft. It really is the most comfortable house and the facilities are second to none. For a large group it is perfect-ours was a family gathering and even though we utilised all the bedrooms,we never felt cramped. I would thoroughly recommend this property.
January 2014
We decided to spend New Year with a large group of friends....24 in total,adults and children. Staying at The Croft was ideal. Plenty of bedrooms, a swimming pool and a kitchen where all of the best parties could be held. Our short break here was incredible and we all agreed it was the best New Year to date. I would highly recommend this cottage, can't wait to return.

This was our second visit to The Croft and it did not disappoint. This property is perfect for family gatherings, and the facility of the swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and gym, not to mention the snooker room made it so that the property never felt crowded (even though we were at maximum capacity). The views from the terrace are magnificent!

This house was perfect for our group of 5 families. Mixture of adults and under 5's all had a great time. House was nice and clean and well equipped. Pool was brilliant and nice and warm. Sufficient outdoor chairs and tables as well as indoor. Any minor issues, (which were down to us and not the owners!) were solved asap by the owners. Location was good as amenities were only a short drive away. You have to try the Ice-creams @ the petrol station - they are huge!!!

The property took my breath away. It exceeded everyone's expectations and with 22 guests we still had plenty of room in the house. The gardens were beautiful and the swimming pool was perfect and so warm and clean. I could not find a fault with the property and had the most fantastic weekend. I cannot wait to return!

Firstly the cakes and flowers on arrival were a lovely touch. The property is of a high standard and very spacious. We went for my 40th birthday with 6 families it was perfect for this get together. The pool was a fantastic extra for the kids. The only negative I can think of is that the pool room had no heating in so was very cold apart from this can not fault the place. The owner was so friendly and helpful. Would definitely love to go back

I stayed here with friends and family in January 2012. I can't rave about the place enough. Every person of the 21 that stayed said it was one of the best weekends away they've ever had. The bedrooms are gorgeous, the sitting rooms cosy and the grounds fabulous. The pool, jacuzzi and sauna were amazing. Spotlessly clean and really made the holiday. The owners were extremely accommodating and even baked some cakes for our arrival. Now, if we can just find another weekend when this wonderful 0property isn't booked up, we will hopefully be returning!

We stayed at the Croft at the beginning of September, it was to celebrate a 50th birthday, and we had age ranges from 5 months to 70. The house had ample space and accommodation for all of us, with us being a large group it was nice to find quiet places at times!! The house, grounds and pool are absolutely fantastic. The owners so welcoming and helpful. I could go on for ever, but short and sweet, if you rent this house you will not be disappointed, it met all our expectations and more, top marks. There are plenty of beautiful towns to visit in the area, and local pubs that do lovely food.

This property was absolutely perfect for our large family and friends celebration 2 weeks. The icing on the cake was the pool which was well used and our 2 year old granddaughter achieved swimming on her own with a little help from armbands!

We loved the pool and used the ample living areas to good effect. Patio and outdoor areas were a boon when weather permitted. We felt an immediate affinity to the place and its surroundings. We have been meeting up with friends for a house party for the past 10 years and this was voted the best yet. We've booked again for next year!

We visited in april 2012 for a week for a whole family get together, there were 22 of us from a few weeks old to 83 years old. The accomodation really suited our needs although could do with an extra shower or two. Everywhere was well equipped and clean. The pool, games room etc were the icing on the cake. (The cakes were lovely too!) We also enjoyed being able to use the garden and play equipment. It is conveniently situation for Hereford and Hay. We would go again. It is more economical to be able to go for the whole week.
June 2012
The owners were friendly and helpful. The large accommodation housed a family of 7 adults and 9 children, aged between 18 and 3. The swimming pool was fantastic and enjoyed by everyone. We had a wonderful weeks holiday at The Croft, the house was well equipped, the sitting rooms, dining room, kitchen and bedrooms were spacious..
Mrs Cartwright

The welcome by the owners and their support throughout the week as needed and the cakes. The swimming pool and garden facilities. The accommodation was ideal for our needs as a large family get together. Nice quiet rural position but close enough to Hereford and Hay, shops etc.

Stayed here as part of a wedding party in March 2012. Amazing property and amenities - gorgeous pool, jacuzzi and sauna!! We stayed in the annexe which gave us our own lounge, kitchen and private space. Rooms are clean and bathrooms spacious and modern on the whole. The grounds are lovely - we had such hot weather that we ended up on the veranda for the reception drinks and this made for some lovely photographs too. We had the whole reception back at the house and the catering was done in the huge fully equipped kitchen - 2 dishwashers were very welcome!! Another fridge or capacity to chill champagne and drinks (and a bigger ice machine) would have made it even better but for a normal holiday it had everything you could ask for and more. A lovely part of the world and the views from the house were divine. Highly recommended!

The accommodation was as advertised and met our needs. The kitchen was well equipped and had a welcome pack of essentials and cakes. The owner was there to meet us and show us around the house and how things worked. She also saved us money on our groceries with her advice. We made full use of the pool and jacuzzi which was so enjoyable and well equipped for children and adults.
February 2012
We stayed here with family while celebrating my Mum's 60th birthday. The property far exceeded our expectations. It is huge, with plenty of bedrooms and lounges to accommodate everyone. The highlight was the amazing pool, with sauna and jacuzzi. The kids loved playing in it, especially as there were lots of pool toys too. It was a nice touch for the owners to leave cake and basic provisions. We arranged an online shop but there is a local farm shop where you can get eggs and things. Would not hesitate to recommend this place and would love to visit again.

We booked The Croft as a surprise for our Grandparents who were celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary - they were bowled over by the place. Although there were 21 of us in total there was plenty of space and it did not feel at all crowded. The games room and pool were a particular hit with all the guests - ages 4 to 83! We would love to go back!

Somewhere fabulous for the whole family to get together from all parts of the UK. A great location and a great property to stay in. We received a lovely welcome gifts of cakes fresh bread - a super touch for arrival. This was a very clean property.
June 2011
We booked this property for a family break with 6 families in total, with kids ranging from 3 years to 17. The owner advised us that the letting of this property is a recent venture however she does a fantastic job. There were homemade cakes, flowers and some basic groceries provided for us on our arrival which was an unpected bonus. The layout of the premises was perfect for our mixed family group, there were two rooms away from the main house with their own small living room and staircase which was perfect for Mum and eldest Aunty to escape the noise of the main house. The pool was the biggest success of the week, lovely size, immaculately kept with it's own changing rooms, shower and toilet. Also within the building a sauna and mini gym above. The kids loved having this to themselves for the week, there are patio doors which open out onto the patio area too. On our arrival a huge brand new trampoline with safety net was being put up which the kids made full use of. The grounds the property are in, are lovely and offer plenty of room for the kids to wander round and explore. We set the kids a treasure hunt on a few occasions and this was great entertainment for them. The games room with pool table was also a hit and used all times day and night. The property is quite remote and it's around 10 mile round trip to a fair size supermarket. However there is a local shop around a mile and half away. I would recommend getting online shop delivered as we did, Sainsburys, Tesco and Asda all deliver to this property. The views are something to mention too, spectacular. Overall we had the best family holiday I think we've had to date, the kids didn't even want to leave for the first few days. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place and would love to book again.
