“Perfect!”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2016

Had a fantastic weekend at Skendleby Hall, went with friends and family to celebrate my husbands birthday. Now looking for an excuse to stay again!

Thank you Sarah - we are delighted that you had a good time at Skendleby Hall and really hope you will return. Ruth and David

“For a birthday weekend an ideal choice”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2016

For our father's 90th birthday weekend with young children as well as the oldies The Hall was ideal. Quality mattresses and pillows, large and small lounges, lots of fridge space. Full sized snooker table which kept all ages occupied. A good weekend all round.

Thank you for your review and really pleased that all went well for your Father's special birthday. What do we need to do to get 5* - all feedback and opinions appreciated.

“Incredible Experience and very helpful organisers”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2015

The house is enormous so it's worth having a phone to keep in touch with each other. The facilities are fantastic - the only problem is time goes too quickly!

Thank you for your lovely review, we hope you can stay with us again.

“Fabulous country house”

Reviewed 23 Nov 2015

I hired Skendleby Hall to celebrate my mother-in laws 90th birthday and I could not have made a better choice. She felt like a Dowager Duchess! Everything was perfect, from utilities to decor to warmth and the helpfulness of the owners who have a "nothing is too much trouble" approach. Our celebration meal was catered for by a very local caterer and was superb, even the washing up was done. We are thinking of hiring it again for my husbands retirement. Would recommend this lovely place to anyone who wants a relaxing break in beautiful countryside.

Thank you for your lovely review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay.

“Superb venue for special celebration with large group of family and friends”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2015

Prior to booking Skendleby Hall we were offered the opportunity to look around and check out the facilities - including the essential catering facilities. Booking was easy on-line and reassuring contact was made at certain points prior to our stay with offers of help/advice/questions answered etc...We and one hitch with a fuse tripping - David the owner was with us within 5 minutes to put this right - we should have been able to do this ourselves! On the day of our arrival we were met at the property by the owners and again shown around the (very large) property, explanations of certain things, and fire/safety information, and general orientation around the property!!. Skendleby Hall is a magnificent property - pictures really do NOT do it justice! Our weekend celebrations surpassed all our expectations - and this was in no small part to do with the delight of staying in the Hall. The splendid drawing room is comfortable, elegant, wonderfully appointed (as is the rest of the house and its many reception rooms) and comfortably accommodated a large gathering. The kitchen was great to work in - and had all the equipment necessary - and the use of another separate kitchen with spare equipment - perfect! The dining room is long and elegant and we managed to accommodate 27 people for one of the lunches very comfortably. Apart from the Drawing room the other reception rooms allowed for people to have some space from the bigger groups - and the music room with piano was a great space for evening entertainments and morning movement and dance groups! The jaccuzi, steam shower and sauna were all enthused about by those who tried them out. Without exception everyone commented on the comfort of the mattresses and quality of bedding - and a real bonus is the provision of a bathroom for each bedroom - a real bonus especially in a group of both family and friends. And as with the downstairs rooms, all the bedrooms were unique in decor/style, interesting and tastefully furnished. What did we like best? - the space the Hall afforded us for being together as a family and still having room to invite friends in. What did we like least? - having to leave....

It was a pleasure to have you and your family at The Hall and thank you for all your kind comments - we are always delighted when people enjoy their special celebrations. We hope you will be able to return to Skendleby Hall one day.

“Our Awesome Wedding Week”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2015

We decided to hold our week long wedding celebrations at Skendleby Hall as it was the only venue we could find with enough accommodation, wedding licence, kid and dog friendly along with an utterly unique backdrop that would make our day so very special, all our guests were in total awe of the venue as well. Ruth, Gillian and David could not do enough to ensure our stay was as perfect as possible giving us some excellent ideas and helped to ensure our day went exactly how we wanted it. We used their recommended local caterer, who provided an absolutely superb service for the whole day, and they also helped us source a great deal on a bouncy castle - we can not fault the experience in any way. We embraced a fully DIY wedding bringing our own flowers, decorations and drinks, not being tied to a package definitely worked for us and gave us exactly what we wanted. Also being self catering meant all of our families could do what they wanted for food etc and weren't tied to meal times. We cannot recommend this venue enough to anyone who is looking to get a large group of people together for a few days what ever the occasion :-)

Thank you for such a lovely review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your wedding week at the Hall. We certainly enjoyed helping.

Reviewed 8 May 2015

Outstanding, ideal location for a family/large group getaway in luxurious surroundings. All and more than you could wish for. Nothing gets in the way, no problem too great. Catering by Skendleby Catering first class and again nothing too much trouble to ensure your stay is one to remember. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again at Skendleby Hall.

“A stunning house with lots to do”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2015

Skendleby hall is a beautiful building set in a stunning part of the country. The house is huge and there's no end of entertainment inside. The owners are very friendly and live moments away, meaning they are at hand should you need them. There's WIFI, a stereo in the kitchen and a decent sound system in the drawing room. Also there's a huge projector screen to watch movies on rainy days, which is a treat. The sauna and steam room is a real highlight. However, it is chemically treated each night so an evening in the hot tub is sadly out of bounds. I'm sure if you ask nicely though, the owners would make arrangements.

Thank you for your lovely review of the Hall. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon.
