“Bankfield house weekend break.”
Reviewed 3 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

This was our third visit and as always we had a lovely time. The size of the house and gardens are great and the views fantastic.
The house seems a bit tired in places and could do with a bit of an upgrade, in the kitchen, the lounges and a couple of the mattresses. Even so hope to stay again next spring.

Fantastic stay at this beautiful house, everything you could possibly need is there; the perfect place for our family celebration. There was plenty of space for our 8 adults, 6 children and 2 dogs; including both private and communal space. Amazing views and great outdoor space, can't praise it highly enough.

“Comfortable spacious accommodation”
Reviewed 2 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

The house is big and its too hard to find, there is a sign outside the gate. The postcode doesn't take you to the right place, the house is a little bit further down the road. The house has beautiful views and fairly big garden to enjoy. There is a fair amount of space for parking cars. The conservatory was a great room for dinning and can fit a large amount of people. The lounge is comfortable though I felt the tv was too small for the size of the room. The reading room/game room wasn't really much of a game room, there weren't very many games and lots of mixed up and with missing pieces. The music room doesn't really feel with a music room at all, there no speakers in there to play music, its just another room with a TV. The kitchen is the right size for the house, its was great. Fitness room, I have no idea where this room is, there was no room in the house with a cross trainer, rowing machine and any of that. Wifi is provided and works fairly well.

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   Yes.

Hi Sarah,
We are guessing you were part of Terasa's group ?
There are very detailed directions on the Holiday Letting website that will bring you direct to our door as satnav is not always 100% reliable.
Your comments regarding games have been noted ....sadly the games get decimated over time by people not putting everything back in the boxes.....we will take all the games out and replace.
We do not describe the Snug as a music room and we do not have a fitness room ....are you looking at some old website ? All up to date information is on the Holiday Lettings website.Thank you for your comments and glad you had a good time

Regards,

Helen and Eric

“Christmas gathering”
Reviewed 30 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We had a family get together over Christmas and had a great time. We enjoyed the facilities and location of the house. The conservatory provided an excellent space for 14 people to dine. The house was nicely decorated for Christmas with two trees and various lights. The house was warm and comfortable with central heating, the AGA and electric fires for instant heat in all necessary spaces. Bedrooms were a good size and nicely decorated with a washbasin in most and appropriate accommodation for 14. Three bathrooms and 4 toilets were sufficient but not en suite. Kitchen was adequate with plenty of plates and cutlery but there wasn't a wine glass for each of us and the knives for cooking weren't sharp so take your own if you're planning a big meal. The aga we found was not hot enough to use but the electric cooker and microwave were fine. Lots of space for parking for at least 6 cars. The views from the house were good but it was December so it was cold so we didn't use the patio and BBQ space. I would recommend this house as a place for a large group to gather. Helen was a very helpful host.

Thank you for your informative review.
We take on board all our guests comments and have put in another 12 wine glasses and ordered a new set of kitchen knives.
The people who were in before you had turned the Aga off !!!!! So it does take quite a while to get back up to temperature !!!
Glad you had a good time and would love to welcome you all back.

Best regards,
Helen and Eric
