    Excellent house with plenty of room for our group of 23. We especially liked the amount of crockery and kitchen equipment and the two dishwashers which made cooking for 23 for whole week easy. We also loved the view of the gardens from the many windows. The owner was very friendly and welcoming and we felt he was on hand if we had had any issues, without being obtrusive. We had no issues with hot water for showers (sometimes an issue in a larger group) and the furniture and fittings were good quality and plentiful. A couple of small issues that may be worth mentioning: we were lucky with the weather and so made the most of local walks such as Wyre Forest and Clee Hill, however we felt that if the weather had been poor, we may have struggled to find things to do in the location. Other small niggles were that a few of us found the beds a bit on the soft side and that it was a bit difficult to get all the rooms to a good temperature - a difficult issue with such a large property - where if we set the thermostats to suit the colder rooms, the smaller rooms were boiling hot. None of these things were major issues for us and the positives of Sporting Heights massively outweighed them. We would highly recommend this place.

    We had the opportunity to stay at the Clay Farm for a weekend and have spent a really good weekend there. The site is clean, comfy, charming and quiet and suited perfectly for a large group (24 people) and benefits from a good location not too far from activities centres and supermarkets. We also really appreciated the warm welcoming of the landlord. Oriane and Christophe

    Our whole experience was fantastic. The location was ideal for us, tranquil and rural yet close to main roads. The house completely fulfilled our needs and was true to the description as advertised. The host lives close by and whilst maintaining a discreet distance was on hand to help us if required. We wholly recommend this property.

    Had a long - Birthday - weekend with 20 people ranging from 2 years to 82 years with all ages in between. Everyone loved the house, it was so big that the children (and the adults, in truth) spent the first hour exploring all the rooms and the next hour trying to remember where they were! The two dishwashers made life so much easier and there was plenty (understatement!) of crockery and cutlery in the kitchen The games room was a massive hit and was enjoyed by all and the main lounge was large enough for everyone to sit with room left over to play charades We are already discussing 'clubbing together' and returning next year as it was such a successful weekend Rob was pleasant and helpful, our shopping delivery arrived early and he was unloading it as I arrived - thank you Rob!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you very much for your kind words. You were perfect guests and we are so glad that you enjoyed the house. We wouldn’t have known anyone had visited it was so clean. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Best wishes from all at Sporting Heights.

    It was so much nicer than the pictures, we had a fantastic week. The house was so spacious, you wouldn't know that 24 people were living there! The owners were very friendly and helpful. Everyone had a lovely time and all the children have asked if we can come back next year. Would definitely recommend :0)

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. It makes it all worthwhile when we know how much the house is appreciated. Thank you.

    It was a delight to stay at Sporting Heights. As a family of 20 we were able to spend time together in a spacious, comfortable ‘home away from home’. All of the amenities, from the extensive lounges to the kitchen eqiipment to the en suite facilities were excellent, it was the small details that meant the house is such a wonderful place to stay and we all immediacy relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful views from every window. The owners were kind and very welcoming. We would stay here again and recommend it highly.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for the review and for selecting Sporting Heights. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Sporting Heights - that is the fuel that keeps us going. We do hope that you will consider booking here again.

    This is an astounding place to stay as a large family or friends group; I cannot recommend Sporting Heights highly enough. From the moment we walked in, we all felt at home (ten adults and 13 children). Everything has been thought of for guests of all ages and the kitchen was so well equipped for our needs. Two dishwashers and over twice the amount of the crockery and cutlery that we needed. We also used a caterer for one night as a special event. We were lucky with the weather and had the chance to swim and fish in the ponds. Rob and Vicky were perfect hosts, making us feel welcome and the farm tour was enjoyed by all. The homemade cakes left for us were very welcome! There's no doubt that we will be making a return booking!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It was wonderful having you here and the children were all such a delight. We are grateful for the review and hope that we will be able to host you for a family gathering in the future.

    Well this was our second time back in 6 months. We went last year November and had an amazing time but really wanted to enjoy the grounds in the summer and it was really worth it. Rob the owner took the time to let us see all the animals there (they even have peacocks!) We had maximum capacity and the house never feels crowded. We will surely be back again. Would recommend this place to anyone!

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We thoroughly enjoyed having you back here again. You are always welcome and we thank you for the review.

    House and grounds was beautifully kept... plenty of crockery for if house was full.. shame there is not a pub/restaurant that is walkable but we were aware of that and plenty of options within an easy drive.. lots of attractions also within easy reach. An amazing house for a group/family gathering - sadly our numbers dropped from originally anticipated but all of us there agreed it was a fantastic property, my husband also enjoyed the fishing facility, lovely surprise of homemade cakes and fresh eggs on arrival too. Only thing to amend on the details is that 2nd games room has a Wii and not an Xbox but we were so busy didn’t have time to play it anyway.. Table Tennis was great fun. Rob, Vicky & Ella have made a fabulous job of this house.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was wonderful to have you here and you left the house so tidy we would hardly notice we had had guests. We are glad that the fishing was enjoyable and hope that next time your husband catches that elusive record fish. Best wishes from us all.

    What a wonderful stay. We were looked after amazingly by Rob and his wife who even arranged a farm visit for us all (we had 9 children under 10). So easy to stay here and such a peaceful and relaxed feel. Highly recommend it!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It was a pleasure to have you and the children stay at Sporting Heights and we are very grateful for the wonderful review online and in the visitor’s book. We are glad that the children enjoyed seeing the animals and perhaps they will see them again if you choose to stay in the future.
