“Fantastic House for a large group”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I organised a Hen Party for 16 ladies staying in Piper House at the start of April. When looking for properties to accommodate a hen party of 16 people I struggled to find places that would accept large groups, in particular Hen Parties at both a price and certain standard that would be acceptable to all involved.

I have to say that Piper House did not disappoint, the accommodation is superb, the décor is beautifully done with all the ladies mentioning how fantastic the property was (the pictures don’t really do it justice). The properties layout enabled our large group to have their own space with bedrooms of 2’s and 3’s, ample bathrooms and ensuites (vital for a large group of women) and dining and living spaces which enabled our large group to dine together, play games and have drinks in the evenings.

Whilst booking the property I dealt directly with the owner Kate through Trip Advisor which made the whole experience stress free and easy. Kate was able to provide me with details of local activities, places to eat (we went to the Olive Branch for dinner which was delicious and able to accommodate large groups in their private dining room), local cooks etc. She was even happy to meet our Tesco delivery van should we have chosen to have food delivered on the day of arrival. When we arrived she met us and showed us around, explained everything we needed to know and was available should we need her as she lives in an adjoining property.

The house is located in the middle of nowhere so some of the ladies did get a bit lost as their sat nav’s sent them on a scenic detour (Kate provided detailed directions which some people failed to read). For this reason we based a lot of activities in the house, on the Saturday we had the owner of Celebrations of Peterborough come and do a cake decorating session with us which was enjoyed by all, especially since you can eat cake whilst taking part! And then on the Sunday we traveled the short 20 min journey to Bourne where we had lunch at the Bourne Eau Terrace and did pottery painting at Paint a Pot which was a great finish to the weekend.

On a final note the wi-fi is intermittent due to the age/construction of the property and the location in the country so we struggled to stream spotify/apple music. If you are going to need music then its probably best to download it before you arrive.

To summarise I would highly recommend booking Piper House, it was everything and more we could ask for, I know all of the ladies would also echo my comments and recommend the property as well.

“Gorgeous Cottage - highly recommended”
Reviewed 16 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I stayed at Piper House on a hen do with 15 other girls. The booking process was very smooth and Katie, the owner, could not have been more helpful in the run up to our stay - recommending caterers, places to eat and things to do.

The house was set up just as we requested upon arrival (most of the rooms could be turned into twins instead of doubles). We were blown away with how big it was, perfect for holding 16 people (it could probably hold more). The house was clean and has everything that you need, the range of kitchenware was impressive. We didn't have enough champagne glasses when we first arrived, called Katie, and they were with us within 30 minutes - you cannot ask for more than that.

The house is in rural Leicestershire, a 10 minute drive from Stamford and a couple of other beautiful little villages.

Could not recommend the house, or Katie, highly enough. Everyone who attended commented on how perfect it was.

“Fabulous holiday cottage”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed here for a long weekend with University friends and their children for our annual reunion. Katie was extremely helpful from the outset, guiding me to the room layouts and how we would fit everyone in, to advice on local amenities and where would be nice to eat out. On arrival we were met by Sarah, Katie's right hand woman, who gave us a very detailed tour of the property and was very polite, helpful and friendly. The property was ideal for a large group such as ourselves, with the upstairs reception room being a great place for everyone to relax and catch-up. The whole place was spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated as well. We enjoyed it so much, that we've already booked again for the same weekend next year and can't wait to catch up with everyone again there.

“Exactly as described”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Renting an accommodation for a group of 6 youth participating in a world championship is stressful. Arriving after a long trip and expecting to be disappointed - photos and descriptions would not match the actual property I was beyond happy to find the photos and descriptions were exactly as presented. The property owners made my decision easy thru their open and rapid communications.
The entire property was in excellent condition. The bedrooms were configured as promised. Everything in the rental was in fine working condition. The owners were nearby and ready to help with any and all requests otherwise they left us to enjoy the property and Piper House.
Suggest this rental to any person or group traveling thru this very beautiful area and town of Stamford and Rutland Water area.

Myself and 4 work colleagues stayed in Piper House during a business trip in May. The house was perfect for us - lots of private bedrooms, some ensuite, comfortable beds, very clean and lots of wee touches that makes it feel like home. Highly recommended!

“Fantastic Location in an idyllic setting”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at Piper Lodge as a family of 7 for a weekend during May as we were attending a wedding in Stamford. The location was perfect - a short drive/taxi ride into Stamford. The house was very clean and had everything needed for a weekend break and all accommodation was very comfortable and homely. Piper Lodge has lovely countryside views and a nice meadow to stroll around on an evening. There aren't any local shops so it is a good idea to get food delivered by the local supermarkets - Waitrose, Tesco etc. The owners were friendly and extremely helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
