Had a long weekend away for a friends 40th, we were a large group and this was the perfect choice.

The property is excellently maintained, clean and well equipped, and surpassed all expectations.

Set back quietly off the road, we kept the log fires burning throughout the time there, not necessary for the heat but more the atmosphere. The aga in the kitchen kept the house warm and there was plenty of hot water at all times.

Would most definitely love to return for another weekend.

“A Fabulous Weekend”
Reviewed 4 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

A beautiful Country Manor, easy to find and only 2 hrs from Hertford. All the rooms are delightfully decorated with a real design flare. Fabulous bathrooms with loads of hot water and considering there were 21 of us, this was no mean feat. The reception rooms had been decorated for Christmas, a nice touch.
The kitchen was exceptional - three sinks, three dishwashers, an enormous amount of crockery, cutlery and glasses, masses of pots and pans, a huge cooking range and and Aga. We wanted for nothing!
I'd love to stay there again and would recommend it highly to any large group of people for a brilliant stay.

“Perfect Party House!”
Reviewed 29 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Just returned from a bank holiday weekend away with 24 friends at this wonderful venue! As a group we have stayed at other large country houses, and must say that the facilities offered at Pettistree were superb.

The house is fully equiped with more than enough dishwashers, fridges, crockery, glasses etc.. for our large group. The dining room was such that we could all eat together. The bedroom and bathrooms are all finished to a high level of decor with a good mix of styles. We were lucky with the weather and able to enjoy a bbq on Saturday and utilise the fabulous outside space. The grounds are well kept and perfect for the children in our group (& some of the adults!) to enjoy some outdoor games. There was lots of space within the house and the piece de resistance had to be the party room. A combination of a great sound system, disco lights and large space made for a perfect dance floor and venue for our murder mystery evening.

The location was perfect and just over 2 hours from West London. Dealings with Peter when making the booking could not have been easier and were very professional. It was nice to meet him upon arrival and to be shown around the property.

All in all I would definitely recommend staying at this property - it is a perfect venue for a party/special event.

“WOW this house certainly has the Wow Factor!”

Just returned from an amazing weekend away with friends and family celebrating a 40th birthday. This house certainly has the wow factor. It is large and luxurious, comfortable and cosy. It has every facility you could wish for, a huge kitchen with three (much needed) dishwashers, an aga and range cooker, three fridges, plenty of seating and lots of crockery, glasses and cutlery. There is plenty to entertain children of all ages, for example, a cupboard containing lots of pre-school toys, a pool table, ping-pong table, ballroom with disco lights and sound system and stage, large screen tvs and a huge garden with huge trampoline. There were plenty of bathrooms to go around all the guests. The bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds and clean crisp linen. There is a separate cottage with three bedrooms and two bathrooms within the grounds which was perfect for our friends and their newborn. This house was perfect for our occasion, but could equally have suited a large group of adults without children. It was very easy to find, being approx 30 seconds off of the A12. Loved it!
