“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR A FAMILY BREAK”
Reviewed 19 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Having looked on the internet for a family break for a large group consisting of 12 adults and 5 children, with ages ranging from the mid 70s, to 18 months, we came across Dinckley Court. As most people, we happened to look on TripAdvisor and were astonished to read the report from Susan from South Shields and I would like to re-dress the balance for future reviewers on TripAdvisor for this property. When people book a holiday they must realise that they are not buying the property and should view it as one which is a temporary residence and not be too critical of the choice of fittings and decorations. We appreciated that the high quality and choice of the ornaments may not have been to everybody's liking but the chance to purchase some of the original items was considered a very good idea. After all no-one was pressurised into buying. As with all large families, our children have been brought up to respect the property of others, and indeed, being very high-spirited were extremely conscious of not causing fixtures and fittings to be broken and I am happy to report that not one item of glassware, or anything else, was broken.

My experience was that the owner, Annette Godfrey, met me on arrival and was most gracious in showing me around the property. It is well appointed and had many features that were not present in other holiday acommodations that I checked on. The kitchen, with the huge amount of crockery, cutlery, and equipment was entirely sufficient and of a good quality and all around the house it was spotless, including bedding and towels. As it was in November, we very much appreciated the constant heating, together with endless supply of hot water. The bonus of course was the free w-fi. We were very fortunate with the weather and spent many hours in the gardens playing ball games and walking in the garden down to the river.

All in all, a delightful place and I will recommend it to amyone looking for a break with a large family of mixed ages.

“Lovely weekend in gorgeous house right on the river Thames‏”

Enjoyed a lovely weekend in Dinckley court. The house is wonderfully spacious with well furnished bedrooms, and a huge kitchen complete with an aga and great dining area in the conservatory. The local pub (the chequers) is a short stroll away, and serves up a very tasty Sunday roast. Since we were there in December, the house was fabulously festive with a Christmas tree and we had the log fire going most of the weekend. Perfect setting for a cosy weekend away.
