“Brilliant Stay!”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We booked Gray Manes to celebrate a 60th Birthday and enjoy a Christmas weekend for 11adults and three young children for the family who came from Wales and Kent. To say it was brilliant would be an understatement! It suited the eldest at 65 years to the youngest at 18months! The house and facilities were excellent, we loved the pool, the large dining table where we sat around until late in the evening, before moving into the lounge with the woodburner glowing on a cold December evening. Chris and Tanya, you have a real gem of a property and thanks for all your help in making arrangements for a memorable weekend. My best memory? Christmas Carols at High Ham Church on the Sunday afternoon and back to Gray Manes where we opened our "Secret Santa" presents to each other in front of the christmas tree in the lounge, before dinner in the evening around the table! (Sorry for leaving so many empty wine bottles!)
The bedrooms were excellent and providing so many towels with the bathrobes was a real plus. A brilliant weekend for all of us. I would thoroughly recommend for a family stay for all ages.

“A beautiful house, with every possible comfort available”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We were absolutely blown away by Gray Manes. The attention to detail was superb, the space was amazing and the bedrooms were all of the same size and standard. We were part of a large group celebrating 60th birthdays, and the property was just ideal. All the facilities were of an excellent standard, and we were more than happy to just chill out in the fabulous lounge, complete with wood burning stove. We had a thoroughly relaxing holiday, and would love to visit Gray Manes again.
The house is situated in a little hamlet, with plenty of walks nearby. For a shopping experience, Clarks Outlet Village is about 10 miles away, and Wells has a beautiful cathedral and lots of individual shops to browse.

“Graymanes was all we had hoped for and more”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were a family group of 13 members, ages ranging from 4 to 74 celebrating a Golden Wedding . From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Tanya and Chris, the whole experience was beyond our expectations. The house is superbly presented, and the children were totally occupied the whole time - so much to do! The pool and games room were was a major hit! This enabled the adults to quietly enjoy the beautiful ambiance of the house and surroundings

We are now looking for another excuse for a celebration!.

“PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were a party of 10 adults and four small children and stayed at Grey Manes in May 2015. We all agreed that the house was perfect for our needs and worked well for us. The kitchen was so well-equipped that we didn't once utter, "if only there was ..." ! There were lovely touches throughout the cottage - the bathrobes, numerous swimming towels (for children that were getting in and out of the pool several times a day!), bath washes and soaps, fresh flowers etc. - not to mention the amazing cake, chocolates, fresh eggs and coffee and teas waiting that were waiting for us. And of course, the cottage and grounds - and the surrounding area - were stunning.

The boys were thrilled with Sky Sports being available and the children loved the trampoline. I particularly liked the roll top bath!

We will be BACK! Thank you once again, Tanya and Chris.
