What a lovely old house and so relaxed. The staff were excellent, the food was brilliant, the bed was so comfortable. They have a very relaxed attitude towards guests and their stay with them. They even have a "honesty bar". Scrabble and other games are there to play in the lounge with a drink before dinner. The breakfast was 100%,... More

We have just returned after a weekend celebrating my mothers 70th birthday. On arrival we were all met by Simon and shown around the grounds and to our rooms. The hotel is a wonderful old country house in a beautiful setting. The rooms were traditionally furnished and very comfortable with everything you need and wonderful views. After unpacking we were...

We booked the Hobcarton room for our anniversary and were very pleased with our choice of hotel. A very friendly welcome, a clean and spacious room with reasonable furnishings and an impressive 4 poster bed. Only niggle on the room was the shower was in a small space and with an overhead shower head only, I didn't want to wet... More

Stayed the weekend because we were in the locality at a friends wedding. The setting is stunning and the grounds are very pretty. The little village is just outside the premises, there is a pub with an integral shop ( very limited stock due to size), but they do sell newspapers. Breakfast was well cooked and the staff are very... More

The welcome we received on arrival was extremely friendly which was an inviting start to our stay at the beautiful Winder Hall Country House. The customer service was second to none. The room was clean and very welcoming. The food both at dinner and breakfast was excellent. Would certainly recommond this hotel to others.

The staff were amazing and bent over backwards to help out in any way they could to ensure our wedding day was everything we'd hoped for - intimate, relaxed, problem-free, and fun. The kitchen team did a particularly great job of catering to our particular (vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free) dietary requirements and the honesty bar was a great touch. The location... More

This Hotel retains an olde world charm, but has modern amenities ie a lovely jacuzzi and a sauna, not to mention wifi and large flat screen TV's. The lounge has comfy sofas and an honesty bar when the staff are unavailable.... More

We arrived at Winder Hall and were made welcome straight away. There was an feeling of suddenly winding down and relaxing. The hotel isn't a 5 star but we a weren't looking for that.. We wanted peace and quiet and beautiful views. That's what we got. The staff were friendly, helpful and not stuck up or pompous. Our room was... More
