“A lovely kind of crazy”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Wow - there is no one word you can use to describe this place. It was astonishing. It largely felt like someone has gone to an auction or house clearance and picked out the most interesting things they could find and put them all in a house. Lots of fun playing with the hats and costumes. I think we could have spent a week here and not seen all there was to see in the house alone!

Very well positioned for access around the city, very comfortable and a joy to stay there.

“Ideal for a memorable and unique hen weekend”

A group of 11 of us stayed at The House over August Bank Holiday to celebrate a hen weekend.....and it certainly made it memorable. The house is extremely clean and well kept. The rooms are large and the beds were extremely comfortable. There are so many weird and wonderful things to find in the house it provided us with talking points the whole way through! Samantha, the owner was great throughout the booking process, we were even left some wine and chocolates on our arrival! The house is stocked with everything from shower gel to cooking ingredients and you are allowed to use everything you see. The garden is stunning and we spent a whole day out there with a barbecue (which Samantha provided), there was enough seating for everyone. I won't spoil all the exciting parts about the house, but I will defintiely be recommending this place to my friends.

The House is perfect for a hen do with 5 large sunny double rooms plus the sofa bed in the lounge! we had cocktails in the garden and the lounge and kitchen areas were perfect for when it got dark!

“Don't miss this gem!”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at this property for a hen weekend and it was brilliant. It's lovely to stay in a house rather than a hotel when you're travelling as a group as the space is so much more friendly for get-togethers, and Samantha's house is unique. Everywhere you look there is something to investigate, whether it's the little curios dotted around or wardrobes full of costumes to put on! We felt like children the whole time we were there.

On a practical level, the house was clean and the bedrooms comfortable. The location was great for us: there are lots of little boutique-y shops to explore and a wealth of places to eat if you don't fancy cooking (though the kitchen gave us the option to do either). We will definitely be back to carry on exploring.

This place couldn't be more removed from a dull old chain hotel. I think a few of our party wanted to move in! Thank you Samantha and Honey Bottom the house for a weekend we won't forget!

“Perfect house for a fun and relaxed hen weekend!”
Reviewed 3 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We booked The House for our friend's hen weekend... The amazing, unusual decor attracted us at first (how can you not book somewhere with a leopard print kitchen floor?!). Our group was 11 girls, and was the perfect size for the House. There was plenty of space to all sit together in the lounge and as we were so luck with the weather - enjoy the lovely garden.

Samantha is very welcoming and made us feel at ease straight away, even providing us with some lovely fizz and choccies. I loved watching everyone's faces as they arrived and took in each room. There are so many bits and bobs to look at, there wasn't enough time to take it all in. Despite all the amazing artefacts around the house, it is very practical too. There were plenty of cups, glasses and everything you would need for a short or long stay. We used the barbecue on the night we arrived, and managed to cook up a feast (which is sometimes tricky in an unfamiliar kitchen).

The beds were really comfy, and the linen and towels were spotlessly clean and smelled like heaven! (Need to find out what washing power you use, Samantha!)... I slept in one of the day beds in the lounge and it was absolutely fine.

Parking wasnt really an issue for us as we only brought 3 cars and managed to park on the road fairly easily. The location is great and we walked down to the Harbour for a boat trip we had organised.

I can't fault the House one bit. It was really the perfect location, atmosphere and style for us. If you are looking for somewhere stark, minimalist and modern - this is not the place for you. It exudes character, personality and vintage charm.

The sound system is great, but one tip - take a mix tape CD if you want cheesy or chart/pop music. Samantha's taste in music is MUCH cooler than ours and we played iPods through smaller portable speakers someone had bought with them.

Thank you, Samantha for sharing your house with us and giving us such a wonderful backdrop for what was an amazing weekend!

Liked least: Shower upstairs doesn't work when taps or shower are running downstairs - but this made for more comedy screams / cold shower moments. Not a big gripe, just a point to note :)

“Simply magical - like a slice of Glastonbury!”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

If you are looking for a unique and memorable place to stay then The House is it! Samantha has created a beautiful and fantastical haven which enchanted our whole group. I booked this for my sister's hen do and it was the perfect location. Each room is individual and the girls loved exploring. It would take longer than the weekend we had to appreciate everything in The House! The kitchen and sitting room were perfect sizes for a group with plenty of seating, cutlery etc. Samantha encouraged us to make use of everything in the house and this led to a very relaxed atmosphere. It also meant our first night was spent raiding the fancy dress and vintage items that are tucked away in the wardrobes. It was a wonderful and bizarre start to the weekend! Samantha (the owner) was so welcoming and it was clear that she gets much joy from others falling in love with the house. She was very generous and sweet, making sure we had all the essentials and leaving some wine and chocolates for us. Highly recommended!
