Lovely house, beautiful walks, not suitable for anyone who is not fully mobile as very steep hills. House has many steps up the beautiful staircase, so again not for the unfit.

Reviewed by Vivienne, 16th November 2018

This was a great property for a family get together in a great location with lovely walks from the property . With a well equipped kitchen with a table everyone could sit around as well as a dining room and 2 living room areas. The grounds were very extensive but in a hill with steps so only suitable for older children.

Perfect place for a family gathering and celebration

Reviewed by Diane, 3rd August 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Skaiteshill House - a great location, interesting grounds to explore with lovely views across the valley. The swimming pool was perfect and used by all 4 generations of our family! We ate in most evenings either in the dining room (comfortably sat 12, with chairs for more), on patio outside house or in kitchen - itRead more was nice to have so many options. Hide

Skaiteshill House is a beautiful property set high above the valley with wonderful views from the house. The rooms are spacious and elegant and the kitchen modern. 5 couples who have known each other for many years spent a very enjoyable week in this lovely house.
