I spent a week at Victorian Rectory with some friends and my family. I absolutely loved it and don't think I could've found a better house for the occasion. It was spacious, cosy, luxurious and had plenty of facilities. We spent a whole lot of our time in the snooker room, the indoor swimming pool, and the tennis court because our family is quite sporty. Overall, we had a wonderful time and are waiting to go back!

We visited Victorian Rectory for my hen party and we all thought the house was outstanding! We took Pepper, my dog, with us and she absolutely enjoyed it as well! The house is perfect for your pets. We went tanning by the pool, cooked a lot of food and spent a lot of time in the house because there was so much to do!
