“Fantastic house & grounds”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed here for a long weekend for a family birthday celebration. It allowed 3 generations of a family to come together comfortably and with plenty of space. The house is fantastically fitted out & furnished, the accommodation is really flexible and allows for people to come together and have their own space. From 3yrs to 70 years old, we all loved it. Very helpful team also pre-booking to help sort out anything we wanted. We will definitely find an excuse to return!

“70th Birthday with family”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Loved The Hyde on website so visited in 2014 to see if this house was what we wanted. In reality, it was even better 'in the flesh'. The owner, Peta, made us welcome then and after booking was so helpful with my questions. Did my first on-line shop and Peta's staff duly put everything away. We made the most of all the facilities - clay pigeon shooting, beautician, train, tennis, croquet, tree house, maze etc etc. James Fletcher was an excellent chef for our Saturday night and roast dinner on Sunday. What a splendid way to celebrate my 70th with my siblings, daughter and granddaughter and nieces and nephews. The youngsters had such a fabulous time in the cottages, away from us oldies. We hope to return

“Truly Amazing Place, you won't regret it”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I knew from the photos that this place looked amazing, but when we got there it was even better! It far exceeded our expectations and we had 20 staying for my friend's hen party who all kept commenting on how great it was. The size of the place was huge but great spaces for all being together including the kitchen, a huge over dining table to seat at least 20 and a big living room and conservatory to congregate in.

Everyone had hot showers every day which was a bonus! and molton brown toilettries are supplied along with loo roll to get you started, dishwasher tabs, - all the basics which is fantastic. The small details made all the difference to our stay.

There was great equipment in the kitchen including the large fridge and 2 dishwashers that came in handy. You also have the option of eating outside which can seat 20 although I would request the table linen to this if you want it 'pretty'.

The steam train was running on the day we were there so you could literally walk a couple of minutes and there is a train stop there.

It's just an amazing place and Bromyard is only about 10 mins away with a big Co-Op and some pubs etc.

You can make as much noise as you wish as there are no neighbours, again a bonus with so many people.

Peta and her team were truly fantastic. They assisted me in finding my first chef, but he was unfortunately taken unwell just a couple of days before we were due to arrive, but Peta and her team sourced another amazing chef (tony) who stepped in to save our day. I didn't expect so much support and really appreciated it.

I could go on....

My only wish was to have been able to stay longer but I'd love to come back with family.

Enjoy your stay and a big thank you to Peta, Tony and the team.

“Making Family Memories in great style at The Hyde”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I found the Hyde in an article in the Saturday Times Weekend with its rambling wisteria-clad house and steam train with red carriages. I was hooked. I booked it for Whitsun. I'd been wanting to make memories for our 5 grandchildren of their grandfather who has cancer and this seemed a perfect place.
We are a family of 11 including the grandchildren 10, 8, 5, 5 and 3. We fitted comfortably and in style into The Hyde. I think it suits a family best and we chose to self cater. We loved exploring and choosing our bedrooms, and the restoration of the old house was fascinating. We lived in the kitchen and the snug mostly, and grownups escaped into the lovely bright and comfortable drawing room to read quietly. However, it was easy to imagine a celebration weekend with friends gathered round the large formal dining room.
The garden was in spring bloom. The maze was a delightful surprise for the kids and the tree house with its views. The two older boys played tennis for hours with the grown ups, and the 2 Dads had their usual competitively serious game of tennis.. We had great weather and a BBQ lunch sitting in the garden on Saturday. The kids were waiting for Sunday when we'd booked the train. What a delightful experience it was, chatting with our engine driver and his lovely fellow train enthusiasts whilst they prepared the train with our anticipation mounting. We climbed into the red carriages and set off down the track round the fields, under bridges, through tunnels to visit the little castle and its dungeon for blood curdling cries from a Dad, later some climbed into the caves for a better look. It was such fun and so much enjoyed by us all.
We had the most wonderful time together, so special, and a few weeks later one of my sons presented me with a photo album of our lovely stay so we'll never forget.

“Spectacular. Cant wait to go back!”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We booked the Hyde for my sisters 30th birthday with our big extended family all attening. We dtsyed there at the end of Janruary and just had the most wonderful time. The houses were just stunning with original features, decorated beautifully and spotlessly clean. The house owner popped over to check we had everything we needed and to say hello which was great. I would not hesitate in anyway reccommending this property to anyone. The only problem I am having now is getting all the family together again for a long weekend! The train ride is a must!!!!!!
