We recently stayed at batchcott hall attending a wedding party and have to say our weekend was perfect! The place itself is absolutely beautiful, and immaculately kept, the gardens and tennis courts were a fantastic suprise and the treehouse/trampoline were amazing for the children! We hardly saw them all weekend! Have to add, the host Eileen was amazing! Anything we wished for she provided
We had the most amazing time here, can't think of a better place for our wedding celebrations, the garden was perfect for a garden party, beautiful views and an amazing place for the children, so much to do, tennis, trampoline, lovely walks etc, our weekend was exactly what we wanted it to be! And we couldn't have done it without Eileen! She was such a good host, so many contacts for tables, balloons etc, all of our guests commented on what an amazing place it was and want to return soon! I can't wait to go back! Thanks!!
We stayed at Batchcott for a long weekend in February half-term. We were a group of 12 with 6 adults and 6 kids aged from 10-17.
The house is just amazing. We were met on arrival and given a tour of the house and we couldn't believe how enormous it was. The living room, dining room and kitchen are huge and really comfortable. The photos really don't do the rooms justice. We easily sat 12 around the dining table so were all able to eat together. There was a log burner and a real fire, perfect for toasting marshmallows.
The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials - we had taken everything, not expecting this, so was a real surprise. The welcome treats from Eileen, the house manager, were really thoughtful and a lovely surprise too. The aga made the kitchen really cosy, but we used the extra cooker just as much. We took it turns to cook on each of our 3 nights and this worked brilliantly. The kitchen is so well equipped with good quality cookware.
Upstairs is enormous too. Every bedroom was spotless and spacious and the beds were so comfortable. The bathrooms were beautiful and fully stocked with soaps, shower gels and fluffy towels.
Outside was great too. The garden was massive and there was a lovely big terrace with garden furniture. It was too wet for us to sit out, but this didn't stop anyone playing in the tennis court and garden. The tree house was brilliant and we all loved the trampoline too. In the warmer weather, with the doors opening from the kitchen and dining room onto the terrace, we know it would be just perfect.
This was the biggest, most comfortable, warm and welcoming house we have ever stayed in and would very highly recommend to everyone thinking of a group holiday. Eileen was so helpful before we arrived and was there if anything had occurred during our stay, though nothing did at all. Thanks for making us so welcome. We would love to return one day.
We stayed here for an annual get together for 3 families and had a fabulous time. The house is beautiful and very spacious, lovely and warm with great facilities and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Eileen the house manager was so welcoming and flexible in meeting our needs - nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay - we hope to return next year!
The house is a little off the beaten track (approx. four miles of single track road) but persevere as it is well worth it! Eileen is an exceptional House Manager providing thoughtful welcoming gifts, who was on hand if needed but not imposing. She even put away our online shopping order, which arrived before we did!
The 18th century house is very homely with open fires, creaking stairs and uneven floor boards but the many ensuite bathrooms are modern and spacious.
The weather for our weekend was very kind which meant we could take advantage of the tennis courts, tree house and trampoline - the children loved it! I would love to make a return visit in the summer.
