Guest Review

We just got back from a weekend away at this beautiful property. The property facilities and decor blew us away. It and the host made for the most magical stay. Our guests could not praise the property more highly. Each room in the property has its own charming personality and was a delight to explore. I would without question recommend this property to anyone looking for something stunning to celebrate a special occasion or even simply a quiet luxury retreat.

18 family members enjoyed a weekend birthday celebration recently. Things couldn’t have been better! Juliet’s attention to detail was magnificent and everything was super from the hot tub to the swimming pool. A great experience topped off by Nigel the chef who cooked for us on Saturday night. A great weekend retreat to be thoroughly recommended.

What a welcoming retreat. Beautiful, luxury and has all the ingredients that a family and friends gathering needs. I had a surprise 50th gathering organised by my wonderful partner. We even had Nigel, a wonderful chef cook for us an amazing array of food. Thank you Juliet for all you did to make this very special for us. Plenty of love from all of us.

Walnut Tree House was the perfect location for our family celebration. It is stunning and beautifully decorated but still manages to feel relaxed and comfortable. There are wonderful indoor and outdoor spaces, and the pool, hot tub, lovely gardens, big family dining table and games room meant that we were all entertained. The owners were very kind and helpful and there were so many thoughtful and welcoming touches. Thank you, I can’t wait to come back x

Sociable living

There’s a relaxed vibe to Walnut Tree House. Throughout, the modern farmhouse style mixes an up to date colour pallet with classic features such as the reassuringly solid handcrafted pine dining table.

After a few tunes on the digital piano, it’s time for pre-dinner drinks on the 12m patio, where the garden stretches before you, giving way to a walnut tree orchard. When the sun sets, there’s no better place to be on a summer’s evening.

Did we mention the indoor swimming pool? We did? Well, how about the pool table and the 8-person outdoor hot tub, inviting you to enjoy a spot of stargazing and Champagne. Everyone in your party will find something to enjoy here.

Calm, quiet bedrooms

In the bedrooms, serene greys, muted pinks and deep shades of blue lull you to sleep. High quality furnishings and stylish finishes are interspersed with quirky details such as the rhino head bedside lights. These surprising and delightful details are what makes Walnut Tree House so special. The bathrooms, with complementary toiletries and generous towels, continue the tone of understated elegance and self-assured quality.
