Great place to stay! We stayed for work purposes and was just what we needed. Rooms were clean, comfortable and plenty of space. Simon was brilliant and super helpful throughout our whole stay. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

We had our wedding at Cleeve house and it was an incredible night! Simon was very helpful on the night, even helped us with the speakers for music! We chose Cleeve House because of its beauty and flexibility in allowing us to bring the key elements that we wanted for our ideal wedding: ability to decorate the place and stay up a bit late on the night, our own delicious food (we went with Johnny's Grill), and the bedrooms to accommodate key guests that travelled from afar. Simon and his family made a tasty breakfast for us the day after- a lovely wrap to the event. Choose Cleeve House for a wonderful experience that you will cherish forever!

A lovely experience from start to finish, despite the sad circumstances (family wake) exceptional hospitality, attentive to all our needs, fabulous setting, wonderful homemade food (thank you Chieko!) Our family and all of our guests alike were delighted with everything. I would like to especially thank Simon; an exceptional host, providing just the right amount of care and attention throughout all stages from planning, to booking, to running so smoothly on the day. With many thanks again to Simon and Chieko, could not have possibly been better in any regard. Very highly recommended.

Didn't stay overnight, but used the lovely hall for my mother-in-law's wake. We needed some pretty complicated catering for the allergies & intolerances in the family and they could not have been more accommodating; completely revamping the menu so no-one felt left out. A beautiful house, reasonable rates and great staff - what more could anyone ask for!

A beautiful house in beautiful nature. Wonderful for a retreat, or a great venue for your large event. It has been recently renovated, giving this beautiful old house a new lease of life. I have spent many wonderful weeks here, in a very welcoming environment and have so many fond memories of this place.
