We stayed at Gray Manes for my daughters wedding, it was amazing. Tanya was so helpful and nothing was too much for her to sort. I would recommend Gray Manes to anyone, it's the most amazing house, clean, relaxing with everything you need to make your stay perfect. Thank you Tanya .

“Graymanes was all we had hoped for and more”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were a family group of 13 members, ages ranging from 4 to 74 celebrating a Golden Wedding . From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Tanya and Chris, the whole experience was beyond our expectations. The house is superbly presented, and the children were totally occupied the whole time - so much to do! The pool and games room were was a major hit! This enabled the adults to quietly enjoy the beautiful ambiance of the house and surroundings

We are now looking for another excuse for a celebration!.

“PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were a party of 10 adults and four small children and stayed at Grey Manes in May 2015. We all agreed that the house was perfect for our needs and worked well for us. The kitchen was so well-equipped that we didn't once utter, "if only there was ..." ! There were lovely touches throughout the cottage - the bathrobes, numerous swimming towels (for children that were getting in and out of the pool several times a day!), bath washes and soaps, fresh flowers etc. - not to mention the amazing cake, chocolates, fresh eggs and coffee and teas waiting that were waiting for us. And of course, the cottage and grounds - and the surrounding area - were stunning.

The boys were thrilled with Sky Sports being available and the children loved the trampoline. I particularly liked the roll top bath!

We will be BACK! Thank you once again, Tanya and Chris.

“A wonderful house in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

As a family, 8 adults and 4 children, we celebrated a 60th birthday in this wonderful house and had a marvellous week there. I was looking for something special for this celebration and I was not disappointed.

From the time I originally enquired about the house until the time we left, nothing was too much trouble. On arrival, Tanya was there to greet us. We were shown all around the property and on departure, Chris was there to see us on our way. There was a lovely home made birthday cake when we arrived, together with eggs and coffee which were very much appreciated and all our shopping had been put away.

The house is something special. It is decorated and furnished to a very high standard and has absolutely everything you need. The pool, which was used every day, was the highlight of the holiday for the children (and the adults) and the games room was also a big hit. There is a playground for the children and the grounds are huge. It is so relaxing and quiet but not at all far from the shops, pubs etc.

We all really enjoyed our stay and we have no negative things to say about it. Everything was perfect. We have wonderful memories and had the best time ever. I would not hesitate to return. In fact I very much hope that we do.

“A wonderful weekend in a wonderful house”
Reviewed 26 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is now our second visit to Gray Manes and it was as good as the first. We first went in Nov 13 for my husbands 50th with friends and everyone just had such an amazing time and said must go back....... Well we did, in Jan15. The house is really set up for all different ages, we had children in our group from 4 up to 16 and they just all had a fantastic weekend again. The bedrooms are large with lovely beds and furnishings, the kitchen has everything, plus a massive comfortable dining table, the lounge is large enough for everyone, then there's the pool and games room, so much to do, my boys (14 & 16) where just on the go from early morning until late night. Tanya has thought of everything, to make your stay special. We turned up and it felt like home, really welcoming. I would so recommend this house to anyone who's looking.

“Lovely Christmas break in Somerset”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

On arrival we were provided with a lovely home baked welcome cake that set the tone for our stay at this beautiful property.
The house retains its historic character however it has been decorated and equipped to a very high standard. We found it extremely comfortable and spacious.
Our party included babies, toddlers and teenagers and the proprietors ensured that the property had all necessary equipment eg cots, high chairs, carriers, dvds, games and play stations etc.

“Christmas came early at Gray Manes!”
Reviewed 5 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Twelve good friends have just had a wonderful 'Christmas' weekend at Gray Manes! The house is superb and looked fabulous with it's huge Christmas tree and all the decorations that Tanya had kindly put up in time for our visit. All of my friends thought the accommodation was first class and remarked on how well equipped the house is - including enough pots and pans for the full Christmas dinner! The house really does have something for everyone. This was my second visit and I somehow don't think it will be my last!!
