Reviewed 24 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

As other people have said, the photo's of Hill House don't do it justice.

We were a mixed group of 12 with children, celebrating a joint 40th Birthday.
There was so much right with the place I can't list it all.
Friendly welcome from manager / caretaker. Beautiful details, the highest quality in furnishings, technology and decoration. Lovely welcoming touches. Fantastic bathrooms and bedrooms, everything was of quality and well maintained.

Great for kids, and big kids.

I'd love to return.

“The best self-catered accommodation any one of us has stayed in.”
Reviewed 18 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

From start to finish Hill House has been nothing but a pleasure. The house delivers on every aspect and is well deserved of its 5 star status. You really do get value for money if you rent Hill House.

The owners & staff have were friendly and flexible at every point. Every detail has been thought through and real attention paid to what guests may need for a comfortable stay, including for pets and babies. The rooms are quiet, the beds are incredibly comfortable, the sound system is top of the range.. in every room. The list goes on and is faultless.

We were a large group of friends and there was easily enough at the house to keep us entertained for a long weekend. Genuinely, some of us are all ready trying to think of an occasion for us to stay again soon.

“However good it looks on the website - believe me in real life it's even better!”
Reviewed 6 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

With an age range of 1 - 60 - 13 of the Harris clan enjoyed 3 wonderful nights in luxurious surroundings. My children / grandchildren want to know why I can't live there permanently and they would come and stay more frequently!

Space to be alone, in small groups or all together. Hill House had it all. Games room was a massive hit as well as the big baths.

Have every intention of going back.

Thank you Ben for all your support.

“No hesitation in recommending Hill House”
Reviewed 15 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This is the first tripadvisor review i have felt compelled enough to write and i have done so this time because Hill House can't be faulted. I was looking for a venue to celebrate my 30th birthday in style and spent whole days pouring over the internet hoping to find somewhere that would be special for me and all my guests. Hill house was perfect, all the small details have been thought of and you are treated as a special welcomed guest for the weekend not a booking.

We had only walked into the living room and were already talking about coming back and one of my friends summed it up on a tour round the house when he said "OMG just doesnt cut it for this place" and he was right........

“Hill House is an excellent place to stay: high quality, huge, heaps of fun.”
Reviewed 10 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Our family (15) had our first family holiday there since we were kids. Hill house was perfect. It sleeps 15 in the most devine bedrooms, with ample space to accommodate everyone's differing needs during the day/night. Eg there's the drawing room for quite sitting and reading, the morning room for watching TV/films/listening the music. The games rooms for pinball, pool, air hockey, etc. the dining room had all 15 of us seated round the table, our evening dinners were socialable and fun events. Everyone was sat comfortably.
The lawn was excellent for rounders and we could even have background music! Early risers blocked seeing the wildlife there too, including a small deer.
In an evening we'd play board games in the drawing room.
Ben and Darren (and crew) were brilliant and certainly worked very hard to ensure our evey need was met. We couldn't ask for any higher levels of customer service.
We had a brilliant, relaxing, fun, time at Hill House. Real quality time for us all to spend in each others company. Our only regret was that we didn't stay long enough! Still on day one we were planning our next trip there!
I can't recommend Hill House highly enough.

Reviewed 13 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We received a warm welcome from Ben and Darren at this really amazing house Darren has thought of everything the welcome glass of champagne in front of a roaring fire in the drawing room on arrival, lovely bedlinen and toiletries to the high quality sound system to ensure staying at Hill House an all round fantastic experience. The house is really beautiful spacious and warm.The grounds are lovely including tennis courts. We took advantage of the free use of Dunston Hall leisure club and golf course. we all had a fantastic weekend and would love to come back. The house is apsolutely ideal for a family get together especially at christmas . It is easily the best holiday rental we have stayed at as a group who have been away every year together for the last 8 years
