This is the perfect place to stay if like us you are a large group. We were 11 adults 11 children and 4 dogs and it's difficult to say who had the best time. When we left several children were in tears and some of the adults were close to tears. Everything has been thought through to the tiniest detail. Each bedroom was like a top hotel. There are some many different areas downstairs from the games room, to different lounges to suit whatever mood you are in. The grounds are great with beautiful countryside to walk through to clear the head if needed. I can't recommend this place highly enough. We are already planning our next trip!
From the moment I contacted Darren to the moment we left Tara, the experience of staying at Hill House was perfect. As a company, and team of 8, we were looking for a venue where we could host a relaxed meeting, whilst being off site and able to unwind and relax in the countryside. Hill House was perfect for this - there was plenty of space for us to spread out, and great to have all audio visual equipment to host a meeting - from a projector to microphone - I dare say these are also available for karaoke also! I don’t think I’ve ever had a meeting next to a roaring log fire before! It was then perfect for us to chill out in the evening, making use of the snug to play board games, and also the fantastic games room to have a few competitions of pool. The bedrooms were all of a fantastic standard, providing a range of different sized rooms and bathrooms. We loved the kitchen, and preparing meals and breakfast, eating in both the kitchen and the dining room. It was quite drizzly outside, so we didn’t get to use the gardens much unfortunately - maybe next time!
When i booked, i had no idea that we would also have the pleasure of Tara during our stay during the days - oh my goodness, this lady is fantastic, and as a corporate stay, Tara provided us with pastries, teas, coffee’s - soy milk, skimmed milk, full milk, snack bars and biscuits and cakes - everything you could think of for a snack break. We hadn’t expected this, and it was such an added bonus to have a break and have everything laid out ready for us. She was also on hand for all our technical enquiries, and gave us a thorough tour of the house on arrival. Before we arrived, Tara also provided us with taxi numbers, and a range of dining options to suit lots of budgets, from fish and chips to apple martinis and popping brownies! Tara is a lovely lady, who really went the extra mile for us at every turn - thank you for everything you did for us!
To sum up - booking as a business, Hill House worked extremely well, and their attention to detail for corporate meetings was impeccable. The other members of my team were quite blown away when they arrived. Thank you for a lovely stay - we hope to be back one day for a meeting, and will certainly recommend you to other areas of the business. If i can make it back with my family as well one day, then i’d love to show them the House.
We enjoyed a great long weekend at Hill House. Impressive manor, with character and well kitted out. We had 19 staying and there was plenty of space. Tara was great, she was very helpful, gave us a tour when we arrived and was there straight away when we had an issue with the ice cream vending machine.
Everyone at the Saxlingham Cricket Club, short walk down the road, was very friendly and welcomed us in to watch football on their Sky Sports.
Only downside was Golf and Swimming were more than 15mins walk away, as stated above, more like 5 mile drive (or 1hr 40mins walk according to Google maps) and only eight people allowed to swim at once (not the best when there are 19 in the party) and Bill’s Fish and Chips were a bit of a letdown, for the price we were disappointed.
Overall, a great place to stay, we didn’t want to leave and would recommend to anyone.
Oh my goodness, where to start.... this place was even better than I expected. It was a surprise for my partners 30th and there was 19 of us going, all family. We were all blown away by the grounds, the decor, the facilities, the space, the lovely staff/owners who helped. Tara particularly was outstanding at what she does, fabulous lady. We had fish and chips which were lovely, homemade pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven which tasted spectacular and finally a homecooked bbq which was fantastic. I pre messaged the Saxon club to see if they were able to put the Lincoln final on due to us being from there and they were more than happy to let us watch it. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming there. We learnt new things everyday and fully appreciated every single little touch that is done within Hill House. I am so sad to be back home, as is everyone else. I will be recommending it to everyone. Absolute dream house. Well done guys.
A huge thank you to Tara and the team at Hill House. We booked a 3 night weekend for my mums 60th birthday celebrations. Every detail has been thought of to make your stay one to remember. The level of organisation is outstanding. We were blown away by the quality of the house, it’s simply stunning. We booked Bills fish and chips for Friday night and the relaxed dinning option for Saturday night, both were delicious! If you are looking for a stylish venue and a team that will make your stay extra special book Hill House now!
Hill House is every bit as impressive in reality as the photographs suggest. It is spotlessly clean, spacious, stylish, well equipped and, importantly, the beds are comfortable.
Tara gives a warm, welcoming, arrival tour and is a bit of a star. Nothing is too much trouble and generous extra touches make this a special place to stay. A round of golf was booked in advance and use of the country club was very pleasant and straight forward.
The fish and chips are fantastic. The bespoke dining experience is great value, with memorable cocktails and canapes to start, excellent food, tea/coffee and a wonderful handmade chocolate slab to finish (complete with glass-cased hammer to smash it). Such fun! All staff were cheerful,friendly and hard working, leaving the house spotless before they departed.
My next visit is already booked and I can't wait.
We rented Hill house for a week as the home from home for our daughter's wedding in Norfolk. I cannot recommend this place enough; Tara and her team were amazing and the Sunday BBQ from chef Theo was simply superb! We filled the house with different guests over the week from bridesmaids and partners and the bride on Friday, where we took advantage of the splendid fish and chip van, to family and friends (and the newly-weds!) for the remaining time. Everyone was simply bowled over by the house and its cleanliness, quirkiness and warmth! Enough space everywhere to 'escape' whether to the friendly kitchen, huge lounge or snug with amazing B&O sound system, or all in the fabulous dining room where we all had such fun and laughter. The games room was also a big hit! Our daughter was thrilled with her home from home - we could not have wished for anywhere better. Nothing was too much trouble: linen changes, delicious lemon meringue cupcakes and prosecco on arrival and a great rapport with both Tara and Theo who almost became 'family'! A wonderful, wonderful stay!
