"We had the most lovely time at Great Bidlake Manor. A great place for a large family gathering. 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. It was a truly fantastic house, perfect for us to celebrate my Aunt's 70th birthday. Thank you, we would love to return again one day."  Mrs. T on 7 January 2018

"We spent a fabulous weekend celebrating a family Christmas as we won't all be together on Christmas Day. It was a perfect venue with a big table seating all of us comfortably, open fires, lots of rooms downstairs to escape each other or spend time together. Our stay was very comfortable, the Manor is well equipped with lovely bedrooms and the quality of towels, linen etc. meant we had the best of a self-catering stay with 5 star hotel comforts."  Mrs. T on 5 December 2017

"What a wonderful property. An ideal place for a special family celebration. Comfortable beds and lots of hot water for showers. Our party's age range was 16 months to 65 plus 2 dogs. All thoroughly enjoyed themselves and nobody wanted to leave."  Mrs. S 17 November 2017

The house has been renovated to the highest possible standard, without losing the sense of history, in which it is steeped. The dogs had a great time in the vast gardens and meadows around the house, and we all revelled in the peace and quiet. My only problem now is where am I going to find somewhere for next year that comes close to being as fabulous as Great Bidlake Manor?!!!"  Mrs C on 9 September 2016
