We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Tudor House:

We visited Tudor House in early May 2024. Its the most amazing property and location that even beats the pictures on the website. Attention to every detail was given

This house is so beautiful I would like to keep it secret. Perfect mixture of a period house and modern amenities. Very good vibes.

A wonderful house in a tranquil location. Thanks for a super stay.

Wonderful accommodation. Clean and tastefully decorated which is the best start to staying somewhere other than home. Starter pack was excellent, very welcoming!

We feel provileged to have seen this great house with its history and beautiful surroundings. Making jam of the blackberries, catching and putting back a lobster from the pond, watching the sheep, make wishes on the public pathways and enjoying apples from the garden all added to a wonderful stay.

Beautiful surroundings , so peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay, just our cup of tea!

Cannot recommend the place enough, great location, wonderful cottage and hosts

Delightful stay in a tranquil location. Private tour of main house very interesting.

A unique experience staying in this beautiful house and grounds, with all the mod cons. Thank you for a fabulous stay and so interesting to have a tour of the house.

Beautiful and distinctive house in superb location. The whole place had a communty feel, helped out by the unexpected delight of a house concert. The gardens were beautifully design and the main house tour with Ann was a revelation. Great service from onsite team, particularly Oksana. Also great service from BR office.

Tudor House is stunning, one of the most beautiful houses I have ever stayed in. The kitchen is a work of art! Spotlessly clean and fitted out to such a high standard. Oskana the owner was wonderfully helpful and we loved learning about the history of the estate. Fabulous holiday.

We have had a fabulous break staying in such beautiful surroundings, having the privacy of the amazing garden and comfort and warmth of this gorgeous house has made our stay perfect.
We look forward to returning sometime and will recommend it
