    Excellent New Year stay. Owners unfailingly thoughtful: the best welcome pack I've seen anywhere. The house felt like a home rather than just a rental. Perfect for a family occasion.

    Had an absolutely marvellous time at the Gun Room for our annual Christmas reunion. Spacious and stylish with a lovely social Kitchen/diner area. Every room is warm, clean and welcoming, with plenty of places to sit and relax, or congregate communally, I didn't expect the place to be set so centrally within the grounds of the Abbey. The lake, nature and historical buildings made this trip truly feel like a retreat from it all. The hosts were incredibly helpful and welcoming - gave all the information we needed with timely responses, and the property was made up perfectly on our arrival.

    This was a girly weekend away to celebrate three big birthdays. It was absolutely fantastic, the house was stunning and the gardens beautiful. We wanted a weekend away from it all and that’s certainly what we got. We would all highly recommend.

    We had a wonderful week at The Gun Room despite the rather wet weather! Both Steven and Malcolm were very helpful. The location is superb and there was plenty of wildlife to see in the garden, especially the Peahens and Peacocks! We had a lovely meal at The Hutt pub just across the road from the main entrance. There are wonderful walks around the estate particularly on a lovely sunny day!



    out of 10

    The cottage is perfect for a quiet family vacation. This is our 2nd stay. The cottage is very well kept and has all the amenities you would need. All of us loved the area and especially the peacocks that visit us everyday.
