“Ideal house for large get together with friends!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed in this house last beginning of September with a group from all over Europe and America - we used to be together in an exchange program. The house was an ideal choice for the get together as there was a huge lounge and a garden where we could hang out together but also we could have private time in our own rooms. The garden was lovely for sitting outside and having a BBQ one night. We went to the city centre of Bournemouth one night as well and it was a short ride and the taxis weren't too expensive for the large group - Greg let us use his account so we got some discount as well. He was a great host in all ways and we felt that we were taken care of and that he wanted us to have a great time. Which we did! Full marks for the beautiful house and full marks for the great service! We also enjoyed Bournemouth as our destination and the house was convenient as it was close to the beach as well as not too far from the city centre. I would recommend this house for get togethers with friends, families or birthdays - definite thumbs up!

“We celebrated our grand daughter's 21st birthday at Carbery House”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Carbery House is the perfect venue for a large party. There was plenty of room to accommodate all Ella's friends. The space for the party was great and above all Greg, the owner, was fantastic, and nothing we wanted was too much trouble. He was happy for the girls to decorate the party room which with his lights looked spectacular. All the guests were found the rooms comfortable and were happy the did not have to sleep on the floor like they do at many house parties!

“The perfect venue for a memorable birthday weekend”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I organised my daughters 21st to be held here for a long weekend for a group of 24- the youngest was 16 and the oldest 72. We couldn't have hoped for a better venue and the owners were incredibly helpful and made us feel at home immediately we arrived. They even helped us decorate the sitting room, moved furniture around and set up the music.
There is loads of space, which is very adaptable. The 6 seater bath was a hit with the younger members of the group who all got in after walking down to the beach (10-15 mins) and swam in the sea! I understand that a sauna is going to built shortly and apparently an ice rink in the back garden.
Its a great place to stay in a group to chill near the sea or to use as a venue for a party or wedding and I would definitely recomend this to family and friends.

“Had an amazing time at this amazing house on a hen do!”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

people found this review helpful

I stayed at Carbery House for my best friends Hen do in November and I have to say I had an amazing time! The house is huge and had enough bathrooms and bedrooms to sleep all of us and not having to queue for a shower. Loved the big bath and the huge dining room!

Greg was very helpful and welcomed us with chocolates and drinks on arrival - what more could girls want! He was also flexible on some of us coming earlier and putting decorations up. He was a real help all round and the whole weekend went smoothly.

I would definitely recommend this place for a girly weekend and especially for large groups since its such a huge house! I wish it had been summer so I could have made more use of the garden!

The house was amazing and we loved the dinner in the lounge where all 25 of us could sit and eat on one table. Greg also organised us a cooked breakfast in the house which was a brilliant option for eating out!

Liked best: Dinner on one table
Liked least: It being too cold to have a BBQ in the huge garden!

“For and 18th, do not bother looking anywhere else!”
Reviewed 20 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

I had my 18th here last week and I can honestly say it is the best party my friends and I have ever experienced. Greg was so helpful setting up the sound system and setting up a table for me and my friends to dine before the party started!
What we loved most was the amount of beds there is and the massive bath- we only wished we'd brought our swimsuits!! The only thing we didn't like was having to leave!
I can positively say that we shall be having another party there in the near future!
Thanks for everything Greg!

“If you’re a best man or in charge of a weekend away with your mates, this is the place to stay!!”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013
1
person found this review helpful

What can I say, this house is awesome and Greg was the perfect host! I was in charge of organising a stag do for 15 guys aged around 30. This house made the whole weekend! The garden is massive with a big decked BBQ area. It was absolutely perfect for dinner and beers in the garden before we headed into town each night.

The dining room has a massive long table in there so even if the weather is poor you can all get round a table to eat. The whole place is decked out really nicely and has everything you need. There seems to be an en-suite in almost every room and one of the rooms has a 5 man bath in it which was pretty immense. The only problem was that we’re an ugly bunch so couldn’t convince any ladies to come back and share the bath with us!

Don’t let the fact that it’s outside the town centre put you off staying here. Taxi’s were less than a tenner and it only took 10mins to get to the centre of town. The beach was a 10min walk from the house, and because you’re a mile or 2 away from the centre, there’s plenty of room on the beach, rather than squashing in down by the pier.

Greg was incredibly easy to deal with when arranging our stay and couldn’t have been a better host. I’ve never bothered to write a review on trip advisor before but had to make the effort for this place. I will definitely be looking to arrange another trip down here with friends next summer.

If you’re a best man or in charge of a weekend away with your mates and want to make sure everyone has a good time, this is the place to stay!
