“Ideal for large group of friends”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Spent four days celebrating the New Year with a large group of friends at this property. It is huge, with more than enough space and rooms to accommodate 20-30. It has great character, with many very old, original features and an interesting history. You can play snooker, on a full size table, in one room, slump in a sofa warmed by the wood-burner in another, watch TV or play board games in another. Then there are the games rooms with table tennis, air hockey, bar football etc.
If you like modern facilities, new furniture and contemporary style, this is not the place for you. But if you like a unique, historical house with old-fashioned comforts then rent Sheafhayne Manor for your special event, family get-together, or as a base in a beautiful part of the country.

“Breathtaking!”

We had a fantastic stay, house is beautiful and the grounds breathtaking. We had children with us and I was worried they would be scared staying in such an old place but they absolutely loved it, it was very relaxed and they felt right at home, the large games room was just fabulous for them but most of all they had amazing fun investigating the gardens and fields.

Would love to return one day.

Thank you very much for your kind feedback. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Sheafhayne Manor. I can understand the concerns about children, but I'm glad that these were soon put to rest. It's a beautiful old house, and we feel it perfectly combines history and the warmth of a family home, with plenty of scope for adventure at all ages.

“Brilliant time”

This was our second visit here. There were 18 of us this time. We had a 1980's disco night on the Saturday, it was hilarious!! Beautiful place; we stayed all week and the weather was lovely so we enjoyed relaxing around the gardens. The house is stunning and has everything you need. Nothing is too pristine, it's all very relaxed so you don't have to worry too much if you smash the odd glass. Would highly recommend this as a venue for a large party or even a wedding.

“90th Celebrations”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We took our mum to stay here to celebrate her 90th birthday. In the war she was in service at Sheafhayne Manor and was really surprised when we told her we had hired it. I was very fortunate to stay in a wing with both my new grandchildren. Under the house, what was once a ballroom, is now a playroom which was ideal for the children. The dining room is amazing and was fantastic when we all sat down to breakfast which the men had cooked.
