    Fabulous house suitable for a large group. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well proportioned, which suited our party of ladies, who are from a tennis club. We stayed here last year and enjoyed it so much that we rebooked. However, we did comment on the poor surface and lines on the tennis court, but unfortunately nothing has been done to improve the surface of the tennis court. We really would urge the new owner to give the tennis court some attention as it is a fantastic amenity and draw.

    We had a really lovely family get-together. Downwood Vinyard is spacious enough to not fall over each other but set out so we felt included. The games room and hot-tub were a real bonus. Bedrooms are spacious with comfy beds. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished. Ronnie was very welcoming and the welcome hamper a really special touch. We would definitely go back and fully recommend

    The house is fantastic for large family groups. There’s lots to do in the house and grounds with both a games room and tennis/ croquet courts. There’s room for 14-16 people formal dining as well as bbq’ing outside. Four generations of family from 5months to 80 years had a great time.

    I have just celebrated my 60th birthday at the Downwood Vineyard with family and friends. 16 of us stayed aged between 5 and 73 everyone had an amazing time, there was plenty for everyone to be occupied with. Whether it was just enjoying the garden, the pool, croquet, tennis, the games room or a quiet corner to read. We did a celebration dinner on the Saturday and the kitchen is so well equipped this was easy. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone.

    We loved the house - perfect for a big group of friends (including small children). Loads of space for everyone to enjoy themselves, and the swimming pool and hot tub were a big bonus. I can't tell you anything about local amenities because we didn't leave the grounds!

    YES, YES, YES to everything positive. If you’re looking for somewhere special this is the place. We chose this for a 40th Anniversary family celebration and boy, did it deliver. My immediate family of 16 (aged from 70 to 17 months, including a 10 year old with severe autism) had the most awesome week of English holiday ever. From my 3 year old grandson learning to ‘swim’ to a week-long pool tournament/teaching session; from a day long Saturday bbq to a formal celebration dinner; from early morning tennis to evening croquet; from leisurely, extended breakfasts in the huge kitchen to pre-dinner drinks on the terrace everything was awesome. This family oriented house strikes a great balance between ‘Downton Abbey’ style historical formality and relaxed family comfort. It’s roomy enough to feel that 16 people are not cramped but cosy enough to keep everyone together. Formal but fun. Historic but happy. I can only say go for it if you’re looking for a group holiday.

    We went with our family to celebrate a 60th birthday, The ages ranged from 18 months to 60 years! There were 16 of us and we all had an amazing time. The house I’d so big and you have plenty of room. No one felt on top of anyone and it was an extremely special time. One we will never forget.
