WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY ABOUT US

Lauren and the Hen's

Church House Berkshire is an absolute dream venue. 

I arranged for 12 lovely ladies to stay in Annie's property for the weekend for my best friends hen do. The place is spectacular...we were all blown away. The location is ideal as offers a rural location with access to amazing amenities. Annie is a fabulous host offering not only a stunning (and unusual) property but is on hand to help you make your event come to life. I can't recommend this place enough for any occasion. Thank you Annie - I hope we can visit again soon!

Cecilie's Small Wedding Reception

Absolutely wonderful space. 

Great service. Stocked kitchen for entertaining and bathroom supplies. Annie has thought of everything and it’s a stunning venue. We can not recommend it enough and if allowed we are definitely coming back. We used the home for a small intimate reception/ party. Used the downstairs room for kids and crafts. Absolutely wonderful! Grounds were also pretty and unique. Great for pictures !!!”

 This beautiful place exceeded every expectation and was truly a sensational experience!! 

9 of us stayed for 2 nights for my sisters hen and not one person wanted to leave. The space has been so lovingly restored to an incredible spec. The computerised systems to control the lighting, heating and music are great touches but what made the trip so fantastic for us was how many of the original features of the church remain. Considering it is a church, we were expecting it to be a bit chilly so packed jumpers etc but in fact we were so toasty warm (thanks to the underfloor heating) we walked around in vest tops most of the time. It’s quite overwhelming how beautiful it is and when my sister walked in, she cried. The hot tub in the beautiful surroundings is an added bonus and we made sure we took full advantage of it during our stay. All of the rooms were clean with great carpets, amazing showers and lovely touches such as robes and slippers. Everything really is high end here. Annie herself was an amazing and kind host. Her and her son worked their socks off to turn the place around for us and when our online shop arrived early they kindly packed it away which was so thoughtful. We had a magnum of prosecco chilling on our arrival with 9 champagne flutes; again, a very nice touch. Annie also put me in touch with a yoga instructor who came to the house on our first evening to deliver a session. This was a brilliant and relaxing way to start our trip and I can not recommend Lisa enough! She also recommended Ellie’s beauty to us and on the second day we booked to each have a 45 minute treatment which was divine!! Very skilled and professional ladies who left everyone feeling relaxed and pampered. Again, I would highly recommended!! I sincerely hope I get to return to this amazing place again!!

 Stunning Property that has EVERYTHING you need and more for a fantastic break away

My family and I stayed at Church House recently for a very rare family get together. From the very moment we arrived we were completely blown away by how stunning the property is! Tim and Annie were fantastic hosts, upon arrival we were greeted with bubbles and smiles. The church is a fantastic property, with everything you need for a fantastic break away, with the added bonus of a hot tub, it really is a retreat you can relax in and unwind, in a stunning and welcoming environment.

Do not hesitate to book this place! 


It is amazing!!


 Photos do not capture how beautiful this space is. What Annie has created is just stunning. I booked it for my best friends Pre-wedding hen and we had the most amazing time. The smart technology, mood lighting and sound system added to this incredible space and really made our night. Annie has really thought of everything with her little added touches like robes, slippers, even make up remover!!!! One of the highlights of this place is the new hot tub. This place was everything I was looking for and more!

Amazing place to stay! Just need an excuse to go back!!

Left on Mar 1, 2019 for a stay in Feb 2019I recently stayed at Church House with a group of friends for a hen weekend. We were really looking forward to our stay and were not disappointed!! Annie and Tim greeted us at the house upon arrival and showed us around the house. The smart home system was great and you could control everything including music, heating, the blinds, lighting and door access from their iPad! We more than tested out the sound system and being able to connect your phone to it and play whatever music you wanted wirelessly was amazing! The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need and has a great space for entertaining with the open plan kitchen/dining/living room area! It is a great mix of original features (the pulpit especially) and modern interior design!! The whole house has a very luxurious feel to it, and has been finished to a very high standard with high spec bathrooms, comfy beds and plush carpets! The large hot tub in the garden is a great addition to the house, and the dressing gowns and slippers provided were a nice touch! We stayed on a sunny weekend in February, but I can imagine the outside space in the summer would be great!! Now I just need to find an excuse to re-book!!

WOW Factor

Left on Mar 9, 2019 for a stay in Mar 2019. What a place!! We stayed here with our family and can honestly say Church House exceeded the WOW factor in every way. The mix of old and new, quirky and convenience, luxury and comfort, technology and traditional was out of this world! They really have thought of everything, comfy beds, superb sound system, beautifully warm with underfloor heating, two dishwashers (who knew you actually need two in your life), superbly equipped kitchen with EVERYTHING you will ever need (even a steamer), log burner, mood lighting throughout, everything controlled by touchpad, totally amazing! Then there’s the decor, a master stroke, the modern style throughout fits beautifully with the ecclesiastical architecture of the church. Would we stay again, absolutely, in fact we are planning on making it an annual event. A must do place to go!

 The church is absolutely gorgeous! You can really feel the thought and effort which went into the conversion process. We loved the space and the smart home features made our stay lovely and memorable. The kitchen has everything one might need. I honestly couldn't recommend the place enough. Annie was a fantastic host and we loved learning about the history of the place from her upon our arrival. We would definitely come back. Thanks again for the opportunity to stay in this unique space.

 This was the second time I have been fortunate enough to stay at this amazing church. It is at the end of a quiet lane and surrounded by fields, it’s so peaceful. Words cannot describe how beautiful the church is with a mix of old and new. It has been renovated to the very highest of standards, still with its character and charm but with all the comfort of a high end new property. The rooms are beautifully furnished with tasteful interior design. The garden is great to walk around or sit and relax with very comfy seating. Tim and Annie are wonderful, friendly hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them..... if it’s possible, Annie will source it and deliver. It’s ideal for a weekend getaway and meeting up with friends, it’s not often you get the opportunity to stay in a beautiful church. Thank you so much Tim and Annie, we will definitely be back.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING CHURCH AND WONDERFUL HOSTS

We loved the church, the space was perfect for our 50th birthday celebration with friends. The lighting is stunning and the decor is gorgeous. The beds are comfy and the linen is hotel standard. The little extras were a lovely touch, we loved the Magnum of Prosecco, chocolate strawberries, toiletries, funky shower caps and  slippers! My memorable moment was when each of my guests did a 'turn' in the pulpit - perfect for showing off or telling a joke! Thank you Tim and Annie you were perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble.
