"The perfect multiple family get together venue"
What a place!! These photos don't do it justice...
I had booked this as a venue for my wife's surprise birthday party and I wasn't disappointed, Everyone who stayed or visited said what a lovely place it was and the kids were over the moon playing in the tree house, on the trampoline and in the Tennis court. My wife was suitably surprised by it all and she was very touched by the gifts and decorations Eileen had left out for our arrival which was very thoughtful. I thought the photos on this web site were great but they don't do the interior justice, WOW the rooms where huge and WOW the quality was fantastic particularly in the bathrooms. There is even a bonus 7th bedroom at no extra cost!!! This has to share a bathroom with the master bedroom but this is a small price to pay for an extra large comfortable bedroom with a Super king size bed on the ground floor (check out the plans on their own website to see http://www.batchcotehall.co.uk/ and even better photos of the place)
This is an ideal rental for groups of friends or family who want to get together or celebrate a special occasion. I could not recommend it more. The house is large, airy, has plenty of room and is beautifully decorated and furnished. The garden is more like a small park and the views of the Wrekin and Shropshire countryside are beautiful and the best thing about the Hall.
The whole group enjoyed their stay at the Hall-children loved the tree house, the trampoline and the Tennis court. Older ones enjoyed the big kitchen with AGA, the 2 wood burning fire places and the fact that the wonderful patio had a delightfully relaxing view. Talk about escape to the country!!!
The accommodation was superb and there was plenty of room for all of our party to have their own space. We were a party of 13 adults and 11 children staying in the 7 bedrooms, plus we had visitors of around another 40 and we still had enough room inside when a shower came.
Thank you for your great review of Batchcott Hall and it was a great weekend for all. I always love surprises too!
