We have stayed at The Pear Tree several times over the past few years and have never had a bad experience. Frances, Anne and Alix work extremely hard to make you feel special whether it is your first visit or you are "regulars". The food served is always delicious and a really good wine selection is enhanced by their own... More

It is a delight to find a hotel which has not been taken over by a faceless, large company and yet competes with a large company on standards. We had only one night there with some friends but the ambience was wonderful - beautiful, natural gardens, well-appointed, quiet, comfortable bedrooms with all needs catered for (including shortbread biscuits that melted!)...

I stopped here with two girlfriends and our three dogs for breakfast on Saturday and had the best eggs benedict ever! They bought out water bowls, bottled water, treats and towels for our dogs, five star treatment al the way. Thank you Pear Tree.

We're so pleased that you and the dogs enjoyed your brunch. Hopefully when the weather gets a little better you can return and have lots more brunches and lunches out on the terrace. Lots of hugs to the dogs. Many thanks Alix Young More

We have been going to The Pear Tree for nearly twenty years and have always loved it. They are currently bringing in changes, all of which are really well thought out and are clear improvements. Very brave to change a 'winning formula'. What is impressive is that it's not only ourselves - 'a mature couple'- but also our 'children' (well... More

Thank for your lovely words, it's so nice to hear that people are enjoying the improvements we're making. We're almost finished on the Conservatory refurb and will be starting on the rest of the public areas and the bedrooms soon so hopefully there'll be even more new stuff for you to see next time you visit. Many thanks Alix Young More

What a wonderful find, super hotel situated in a rural setting. Staff are friendly, welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. Would recommend this hotel and intend to return, perhaps when the garden and vines are in bloom, to enjoy its wonderful outside space. Stephen L

We visited the Pear Tree for our wedding anniversary and we were delighted by the experience. Our room "Sir John Brydges" had splendid views overlooking the spacious gardens and was beautifully furnished. There was an excellent choice for breakfast and the evening meal was outstanding. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
