“Beautiful house, perfect accommodation for large groups”

I visited Ormidale House as part of a large group and upon arrival I was very impressed with the appearance and presentation of the house. It is extremely large and spacious, with many rooms for separate purposes, but the house still manages to maintain a sensible layout, meaning that you can easily find whatever room you are looking for throughout the house without getting lost.

The facilities within the house were also very impressive, and it is clear that everything a large group may need has been considered and included within the house.

As an added bonus, it was very simple and straight-forward to travel there by car, making the holiday less stressful from the start.

“Fabulously well equipped house with stacks of character in a beautiful location”

The Ormidale House was the perfect location to celebrate a significant birthday with a wonderful group of friends. On arrival it was great to explore the house and look at all the unique features, paintings and ornaments.
The large kitchen is very well equipped making it easy to cater for a group. The dining room has a very long table with lots of chairs, the perfect place to serve dinner. A games room with snooker and pool is great for whiling away a rainy afternoon. The jacuzzi and sauna lovely for relaxing.
Whatever the occasion, The Ormidale House is an amazing venue for getting together with friends or family.

“Never stayed anywhere like it”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Though the pictures were impressive they could not possibly do the beauty of Ormidale House justice. It is incredibly well maintained, with a wide variety of tasteful decorations

You could really feel the history from this incredibly well preserved building.

“Out of This World”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I had the pleasure of staying here for a short break in September and it was the most magical and beautiful place I have ever been. The drive there is filled with spectacular views and landscapes but nothing compared to the grounds and house. From the moment I set foot inside I was transported to another world and instantly felt like I was in a fairy tale! The house is so well kept and I love the traditional charm of the place. You will never find yourself bored here, the grounds are screaming out to be explored and you easily lose track of time while chilling out in the hot tub. I will hopefully be lucky enough to come back to this house and I have already recommended it to friends and family :) Thank you so much for a great stay!

“Best weekend of our lives!!”

I booked Ormidale House for a 12 friends for a friends birthday weekend, John was very fast in responding and very pleasant to deal with. When we arrived we could not believe how absolutely stunning and vast this property and it's gardens are! I stayed inside the house for the full 4 days and still didn't get to see everything as the is property just has sooooo much to see and do! The house was opulent and beautiful with roaring fires, a huge dining table, beautiful drawing room and billiards room and solo much more!! We spent lots of time in the hot tub and cooking delicious dinners on the aga. There were soooo many beautiful bedrooms everyone could have their own room with stunning views of the gorgeous gardens. I really cannot recommend staying at Ormidale enough!! It was the weekend of a lifetime, we made many memories that I will never forget. The perfect opulent getaway if you really want to spoil yourself!!!
