This place is great. Location is tranquil, green with rolling hills out in the country. Very relaxing. The staff are super friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The rooms are great and cosy. When we arrived it rained most of the weekend. The rooms are beautifully decorated, heater inthe bathroom, heated towel racks,... More

Good food and excellent service. Have not seen such beautiful gardens and attention to detail. Go and check out the chapel - lovely wedding venue. We wanted to travel around the Midlands... More

We only stayed one night but the room was lovely and the staff welcoming. We were given a glass of bubbly on arrival. I had a manicure and massage which was lovely and very reasonably priced. We ate in the loft restaurant and the food was excellent, my beef was probably the best I'd ever had. The only reason I... More

From our arrival to our check out less than 24 hours later we felt so at home and so comortable. Delicious food, wonderful spa treatment and the most incredibly welcoming environment, it was our 20th Anniversary and it was perfect.

Amazing spa with great facilities. The food was average, but the rooms made up for that. Watch out for the dirt road into the hotel, caught my low suspension car bumper. Nothing beats an open fireplace in your room.

Three of us stayed in 2 rooms for 3 nights. A very welcoming reception and without asking a room change was made so that we were given 2 rooms close to each other. The rooms were beautifully appointed, very comfortable and clean. As the evening we arrived was chilly we lit a fire in the small logburner which warmed the... More

Very personalised service from everyone. The spa very proffesional and kid friendly. The only thing I was not comfortable with was the lack of visible security at night. It was scary to leave around 4 am and know there wasn't anyone on duty by the reception.
