We had a lovely stay in early November for my 30th birthday. All 23 of us thought the house was beautiful and Stephen and Candida were lovely hosts, really friendly and helpful. The property is perfectly located for walks along the Cotswold way and we really enjoyed being able to use the swimming pool - the temperature was perfect even in November! We were all able to all sit around the dining table for dinner and really loved the open fire in the living room, the house exceeded our expectations and I would recommend it for all large groups, truly magical!
This was the perfect place to stay, providing exceptional facilities that catered for the whole party from age 90 years to 6 months. Nothing was too much trouble, whatever we asked for was there waiting for us, and the welcome we received from the owner was second to none - the welcome pack has to be the most generous and comprehensive I have seen. To be honest, we didn't want to leave!
We held our wedding weekend at Ewelme and everything was perfect from start to finish. We could not recommend it more highly. The house is beautiful, elegant, full of history and luxurious, yet with a comfortable, homely feel too. It is equipped with everything you could possibly need in the house and the lovely heated pool and gorgeous gardens are perfect for outdoor socialising. Quite a few from our party enjoyed a country ramble on The Cotswold Way which is only a short distance from the house, and the children ( and many adults) loved the pool, trampoline, etc. In the lead up to the weekend both Candida and Kristina could not have been more helpful and obliging, they really made the planning of everything for the weekend really stress free and they were both so friendly that I rather miss my chats with them now the event has passed! We will certainly be looking for an excuse to repeat a booking in the near future.
We went to Ewelme for a week for my wife's 50th birthday celebration with all of her family. We had a wonderful week. The house and the gardens are fabulous - beautiful and relaxing. As I think others have experienced, the place actually exceeded our expectations. It is in such a lovely location too - we visited Highgrove gardens, Slimbridge and Snowshill lavender farm. We were sad to come home.
An incredible, unique property with beautiful gardens and interiors. A perfect house to host our group of girls for the weekend! Well catered for large parties and outdoor activities we had an absolute ball. Exceptional facilities and rooming options we were very looked after and i'm sure individually we'd all love to return with our families!
I booked Ewelme Manor for a group of 14 guests for my husbands 40th birthday. The house is absolutely beautiful- the pictures really do not do it justice. Our guests were blown away by the property, the rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated, the house has a lovely ambience and so much room for everyone. We visited in winter so made good use of the fireplace and huge lounge room. The whole house was warm with underfloor heating in the kitchen and and great aga. The pool and outdoor space is amazing so would also be a wonderful place to stay in summer. The owners gave us a warm welcome (champagne for my husbands birthday, slippers and robes for each guest- lovely extra touches!) were great to deal with throughout the process and gave us great recommendations for catering and information about the area. I cannot recommend this house any more highly, I am hoping to find some reason to stay again! Thank you Stephen and Candida for a perfect weekend.
Although I had looked at photos of the property before arriving, Ewelme Manor itself excelled all the expectations even more! I was welcomed by Stephen (the owner of the house) and he was kind enough to take the time and show me around the property. The small details such as the towels, robes and roses that awaited my guests on their beds made the place feel like home instantly. Although there was 22 of us staying, it never felt over-crowded. The house was just perfect! In the evening I had arranged caterers (The Little Pickle, who were great!) to come in and serve a three course meal. To have all my friends in one room was really special. There was so many 'oohs' and 'ahhs' as I was showing them around too. For anyone interested in renting somewhere, be it for a night or a week, stop your search now. This is the place! On arrival, Stephen had also informed me of the Cotswolds walk which began right behind the property. So on Sunday morning, my friends and I enjoyed a little touch of country heaven and had a lovely leisurely walk taking in some breathtaking sights. I will never forget the memories that I made at Ewelme Manor and am already making plans to return to the property to surprise my Mum for her 60th! Thanks Candida and Stephen :)
