It's a pity that the highest accolade I can give is excellent - it deserves far higher than that! Overall this property exceeded our highest expectations, we were a mixed party of an age range from 3 years to 80 years, celebrating my 65th birthday and retirement. Without exception everybody was catered for with regard to the facilities on offer in the house, garden and surrounding countryside. I can, and have recommended this property to friends and family.

It was total perfection, we were so incredibly lucky to have stayed here. I hope we will do again soon. The house is perfect for any event, our dog loved being able to roam the grounds safely. It was just fantastic start to finish. Nothing I would change. Thank you to the owners for making us so welcome.

Hoath House is a gorgeous house in which to stay. The bedrooms and ensuites/bathroom very good indeed. The beds were some of the most comfortable we have ever slept in and upstairs furnishings were of a very good, if not excellent quality. The gardens superb.

It was a great venue for our family which included 10 children. A wonderful garden to explore, trees to climb, places to hide and a house with numerous nooks and crannies to discover.

An amazing house in an idyllic setting. The gardens are beautiful, we were able to play rounders in one part of them. The owner was quick to respond to any queries and was very helpful. Even though there were so many of us there was plenty of space, and we all had a great time. Highly recommend.

Hoath House is amazing, full of character and charm. Loved everything about it. If there's anything you need the owner brought it immediately. We were 24 people and every one of them say the same.

The property and garden are superb, it was a real privilege to stay there. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms all worked well. It was really nice to have the games room so close to the sitting room so that everyone was close together. We were blessed with good weather which meant we could enjoy the garden and the outdoor games provided. Having 2 cookers and fridges was great.

The gardens were well appointed. The open fires with plenty of logs were welcome. The games room and tennis court were a bonus as well as a large lawn for football. There were some interesting books in the library. Communications and organisation of bedrooms were good .

Hoath House is a beautiful house in a stunning setting.The games room was a bonus and we enjoyed the snooker and table tennis. The gardens are gorgeous with interesting plants, beautifully tended, surrounded by nothing but breathtaking English countryside. The children enjoyed the tree swings and could run around safely. The rooms are a very good size and the beds extremely comfortable. Hoath House is a lovely with a great atmosphere. We congratulated ourselves on our choice!

It was spacious and generally well presented. The gardens were much more attractive and well set out - the details/website do not do it justice. Lovely peaceful location that was handy for many excursions.
Mrs Rees

The house was wonderful - spacious and warm, with some of the most splendid bedrooms I've seen in a rental property. The gardens are beautifully cared for and a real delight. Most of all, we loved the way that every practicality had been thought through for the comfort of the guests.

I am already looking at my next Sykes weekend break after our lovely stay at Hoath House. Size of rooms was great, excellent kitchen and facilities. Garden was amazing and table tennis was great. Bedrooms clean and fresh. House has a fantastic atmosphere.

The house was much admired by family and friends. We occupied all 7 bedrooms which were well proportioned and very comfortable, linen was good quality. Large party easily accommodated between the kitchen, panelled dining room and very homely lounge, whilst children played in the library. We were sorry to leave.

It was a beautiful setting and the house was fantastic and met all our needs. We ranged from 71 to 5 years and dogs so it was a big ask ! We would all definitely go back.

Beautiful specious property with a lot of character and games, so there is always something to do whatever the weather. The fairy lights around the garden only highlighted the cozy feel. The location is brilliant, surrounded by castles and beautiful nature. The property is perfect for any type of event but also for a relaxing retreat. The owner Richard is very easy to deal with and provided detailed description including the layout. We would definitely recommend for any type of stay.
Mr Wilson

This property was well maintained with a high standard of amenities and equipment. There was plenty of room for the party of guests to relax and spread out as the gardens were also well tended.

My wife and I stayed here for a week in June 2016 for our wedding and week of celebrations. We all loved staying at Hoath House! We first visited Hoath House whilst searching for a wedding venue. The owner, Richard, was very helpful and informative both about the house and grounds but also gave us some helpful pointers on planning the wedding. We decided to book because we wanted a relaxed wedding for around 80 guests with freedom to plan it the way we wanted. Hoath House was perfect as there were few rules set out. For example there was no corkage fee, no restrictions on which suppliers we could use, and camping was allowed for up to 5 tents. On top of this there was lots of space for indoor seating and for the dancing. We decided that we would stay the whole week as it was the same price as the weekend only, which we thought was a fantastic deal. The wedding day was amazing, Richard coordinated with the caterer and other suppliers as well as our ushers to ensure the day went smoothly. Our caterer appreciated the facilities e.g. outdoor electricity, large kitchen, fridge space etc. We stayed on through the week and had the best time, everyone very much enjoyed the cosy Tudor wing and the enormous main building, full of historic features such as the inglenook. We all enjoyed the amazing gardens which seem to get a lot of attention as they were tended by gardeners on several days of the week of our stay. Everyone loved their room, and most of them had en-suites.The place was well stocked with everything we needed including garden furniture, bbqs, lawn games, books and board games. There was table tennis and a piano. All the mod cons were there including internet. The surrounding area was lovely with lots to do and see, in particular our Australian guests were very impressed. So all in all it was a great venue, and we would definitely recommend it.

7 couples had an amazing weekend in the wonderful Hoath House. House perfect. Grounds lovely. Only attention needed is tennis court as kept losing our balls because of old surround

This was my 60th birthday gathering so age ranges from 20 to 85 no children. The owner was friendly and welcoming and happy to talk about its history. The house was large enough to give us all space and enough entertainment to keep a range of ages occupied.bedrooms were clean and spacious with enough linen. in the lounge it was lovely to sit around the fire although furniture was well worn. There was an audio system for games room and lounge. The kitchen was well supplied with cutlery and crockery we used local outside caterers "Ronnie" and they were happy with facilities and produced excellent meal. Outside plenty of space even though cold managed to play croquet and breakfast outside. Lovely walks and short walk to local pub which was very friendly. Lots of places of interest close by

Went here for my friends wedding amazing location and amazing place would recommend this to anyone absolutely lovely weekend away
December 2015
Exceeded expectations - fantastic house set in beautiful grounds. This was a perfect option for a large family gathering, lots of space to avoid being on-top of each other but large communal areas allowing the whole family to be together. The bedrooms were great and most had on-suite facilities which made life easier. The house smells of history and has a sense of grandeur and character. There is a definite home from home feeling (give or take the odd 10 rooms, grounds bigger than my local park and a en-suite nearly the same size as our lounge) due to the fact that so much is included, the paintings, the fixtures, cooking facilities among others) and the fact that you want to treat the house with respect as if it was your own. The owners were great and we would definitely recommend to others, it ticked all the boxes and everyone said they would welcome a reoccurring stay.

I booked Hoath House to celebrate my retirement and 65th birthday with extended family and friends. From the moment we drove up to the house, through magnificently kept gardens, we could not fail to be impressed and delighted with our choice of venue! and the levels of delight continued to soar once we walked through the doors, the property is, to be frank, magnificent! We were a party of 14 adults and 3 children staying for the week, or part week, with a further 40+ guests joining us on Sunday to join in my actual birthday celebration, and the House easily accommodated the numbers with room to spare. I cannot praise this property highly enough, to do it justice one would have to actually see it! From the well equipped kitchen, the Dining Room, well decorated comfortable (huge) ensuite bedrooms, communal areas for relaxing, chatting or chilling out, to the games room with pool table and table tennis, and a tennis court in the garden, there is something for everyone, including games to play in the garden such as croquet, jenga, connect 4 and boule'. The owner, Richard, lives adjacent to the house and although he keeps a very low profile, he is on hand and available should you have any questions or queries, and Richard, a personal message, when I say to you " thank you for your service" I trust you know what I'm saying having read the book....!
