“GREAT VENUE FOR A FAMILY CELEBRATION”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a beautiful house with lovely gardens which easily accommodated our family of 10 adults and 4 children. There are so many nice touches ranging from high quality toiletries to a huge jar of retro sweets and a well equipped baby station which contains pretty well everything you will need for small children e.g nappies, food, milk,bath thermometers etc. The bedrooms are very comfortable with ensuites or large family bathrooms. The living space is massive - you can always find a nice quiet corner if you want. Again the kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could want even down to a bag of flour in case you use the Pizza oven. Plenty for everyone to do - the retro games room was very popular as was croquet on the lawn and tennis. All equipment is provided so no need to pack any sports equipment. Membership at Dunston Hall hotel (10 mins drive) is included and we made good use of the golf course and spa. A couple of tips - book golf tee times well ahead of your visit as the course is very busy at weekends and on Monday morning. Also you may have problems if your whole group want to visit the pool and spa at the same time - understandably the hotel didn't want 14 of us descending on them leaving no room for hotel guests! We we re limited to 6 people at a time - you need to ring ahead to check it is Ok to Visit. Catering was easy - we had the fish and chip van on Friday night (very good quality fish and chips and Bill is a really nice man), we had a catered meal on Saturday night which was a lovely occasion with a free cocktail bar beforehand and a really nice meal. We used the pizza Oven ourselves on Sunday - instructions and all the wood etc were provided. Best to take more bases than you will need - it takes a few to get to grips with the temperature generated in the oven! Then a BBQ on Mon again with charcoal provided. We had arranged a supermarket delivery to arrive on the Friday afternoon which Is unpacked for you by the time you arrive. Overall a lovely four nights which suited all age groups. The icing on the cake was the superb service provided by Tara from the moment we booked. So helpful and patient and did everything she could to ensure the break was perfect

“A Fantastic venue for a family reunion”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was our second visit to Hill House and it was just as good as our first in every way. The house was very well presented, exceptionally clean, with every facility we needed for our stay. Our 4 day break brought together family from Canada, Holland and the UK for a reunion, with ages ranging from 8 months to 88 years.
Everybody enjoyed our Friday night meal from Bill the mobile the fish and chip man and also the Cocktails, courtesy of Tara, and formal dinner cooked by Bespoke Catering on the Saturday night.
I can definitely recommend the Mucky Duck hunt in the house grounds, this was supposed to be for the 3 children in the group but I think the adults enjoyed it just as much!
Tara and her team are professional and very helpful with all of our specific requirements met in full.
We would definitely recommend Hill House to anybody who wanted a top end house with excellent service. We are all looking forward to returning in the future.

“Fantastic stay at a showstopper venue!”
Reviewed 20 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Tara made our stay so enjoyable and easy from the get go. It is the little things that make Hill House have the wow factor. Everyone commented on how great the place was. They have thought of everything and this just made our stay so much more enjoyable. Would recommend to stay without hesitation. It has so much to do that it works for big groups/families with or without kids.

Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

“Beyond our expectations ... Off the clock amazing!”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Darren and Tara are the perfect hosts and this made our weekend to celebrate my partners 40th that more special. Our group was unanimous that the house was amazing and catered for everything perfectly. The house is beautifully decorated with fantastic artwork, kitchen is completely decked out and has a range of glassware and blenders for all your cocktail needs. The dining room was brilliant for our group dinners. The games room was so much fun too. We all would totally recommend hill house for your holiday.

“The actual was as fantastic as the anticipation”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Having looked forward to our stay at Hill House for so long I was delighted that it lived up to all the reviews I read. We stayed for a 3 night weekend to celebrate my 50th birthday and had a magical time.
The team looked after us with warmth and professionalism from the very first emails to the moment we left.
Hill House is quirky yet sophisticated, so much thought has gone into facilities and extras that are provided. Each room has its own personality whether you want to party, chill, dine in style or play in the fab games room, there is something for everyone.
The Bespoke dining is a must as is the pizza lunch and Bills fish is the best I've ever tasted ,if you have time a visit to the country club well worth while, and the village club very friendly.
We were a party of adults who had a memorable weekend and would love to return.
