When you approach this stunning house it gives you the impression of a Grand stately home similar to Downton Abbey. It is simply stunning. We went for our friends special birthday and we had the time of our lives. It sleeps at least 30 but we had 21 and there was so much room, we didn't feel crowded at all. The bedrooms are all very special and nearly all had ensuites. We enjoyed the outside area and luckily we had great weather and had a BBQ. We had all the utensils to cook and prepare food. We made use of the cinema room and watched a couple of DVD'S. The men made use of the games annex which included a pool table and numerous other game tables. On the Saturday night we had the outside caterers come and serve us a 3 course meal. We felt really spoilt and it was lovely for our friends Birthday. We loved our time here and are booking again for next year.

We stayed here with our UK family for a long weekend. It is truly one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I've ever seen. The house is huge and each bedroom (I lost count-somewhere around 13) has its own ensuite bath. Chock full of antiques and lovingly cared for, with two kitchens. We will definitely visit again!

What a fantastic time we all had at Stretton House!!!! We booked for a family birthday celebration and despite having over 30 guests, there was so much space for all to relax and enjoy. Whether it was relaxing in one of the several sitting rooms, or dining indoors using one of the two kitchens or even dining outside using the BBQ. The children could amuse themselves in garden on the trampoline while the older ones could use the games provided in the outhouse. Now everyone wants to come back for another get together in the same place- any celebration or excuse accepted. Thank you Stretton House !

We stayed here in June for the weekend with 30 friends and family and had the most amazing time! The house was breathtaking, spotless and full of character. Highlights were the garden areas, the fully equipped kitchens and the games room. We would love to return with the children as there is so much for them to do! We will never forget the time we had at Stretton House, thank you!
