"What a superb house! Everything was absolutely wonderful - great bedrooms, fantastic en-suites, well-equipped kitchen, great sounding piano... Rabbits. Sheep. We've never used Sonos before - very nice. Comes with its own wood & walking distance to the pub. I can't think of anything that wasn't lovely." Mrs. M 14 June 2019

"Great Bidlake Manor is a lovely place to stay. This was our second family holiday there and accommodated the 10 of us superbly. A family Birthday made even more memorable. Our two dogs could not fault Bidlake either, acres to roam." Mrs. C on 7 June 2019

“Grand living at a very affordable price. Eight of us stayed for a week. It took a few hours to navigate the huge house. The rooms are all stunning, all en-suite and each has its own attraction. A great place to dine in once you get used to the cooker. Lots of little snugs for a quiet read. Everything worked. Well placed for all sorts of days out all within an hour. Well worth a repeat visit." Mr. F on 10 May 2019

"This beautiful Manor House was everything we hoped for and more, exceptionally clean luxury accommodation which was very well equipped and the heated flooring and fires made it a lovely cosy retreat for a get-together for the whole family. The house has generous accommodation with enough room for people to have their own space if needed, but simultaneously providing informal and formal dining areas for the whole family and likewise with the sitting room. The open fires were the icing on the cake. We also loved the separate music room, the TV room on which to view either one's own DVDs or the wide selection provided. There was much else to take advantage of if so inclined, such as the study with a wide range of books, the pool room, darts board, second kitchen with full washing facilities etc. It was an idyllic setting and a really well furnished and thought out large family home that we felt privileged to have been able to experience. In fact, the whole experience made some wonderful family memories and we would love to return in the future." Mr. B on 18 January 2019

"Beautiful house. We felt extremely well provided for. Plenty of utensils and it seemed that our comfort was paramount.. Local pub, The White Hart very friendly and welcoming --11 adults, 2 children and 3 dogs.... we had an amazing time. Have already booked for next year. The house is clean, atmospheric, and well thought out. It is by far the best one we have stayed in." Mr C on 12 December 2018

"Great Bidlake Manor is an outstanding property ideally suited to quiet family getaways. It was immaculately presented and every comfort was provided.

We were 8 adults and 4 kids and there was plenty of space for everyone and it was a superbly comfortable stay. There was plenty for the kids to do and the kitchen was well stocked, making evenings in very easy. The children loved the manor and the space. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were incredibly spacious with huge bathrooms, warm and very comfortable. Showers were fantastic and there was no problem with cold water as all bathrooms had their own water tank. There were Sonos music systems throughout the house, a library, music room, games room, tv room,2 kitchens, a boot room, real fire places with all you need for lighting them.
