The house was built by a grandson of the founder of Wedgewood pottery, and features a modern triptych painting of the first owner's daily life, in the dining room. The interior is suitably 'country house', with an impressive panelled staircase, and real furniture (if perhaps a bit too much furniture in the guest lounge...). But it's been well renovated and...

Took my family for afternoon tea at the Upper House. It is a lovely building in a fantastic spot. The tea was wonderful and they happily catered for a vegetarian and someone with a nut allergy. Lots of delicious cakes, warm scones and lashings of tea. The only criticism was from my daughter who thought there should be more jam!... More

I went here with my husband for a birthday treat ( from my son & daughter -in-law ) . We couldn't fault anything...... The service was great, the staff were very pleasant and accommodating and the food was gorgeous. We felt very relaxed and were not rushed at all. Would DEFINITELY go again .......

Visited the restaurant for a family members birthday this evening. The restaurant itself is decorated nicely with views of the gardens. We had the fish platter and the meat platter for starter between 5 of us. I had the beef and crem brûlée afterwards. It was a really good meal, attentive service and lovely food. 3 courses with bottles of... More

we arrived at the hotel at 2pm on the 16th May 2015 to find our Executive room with a balcony had been double booked. We were relocated in a small box room (no balcony). The room was called Bridgwater we would not recommend this room as it is located near some kind of boiler room all you could hear all... More

My wife and I stayed overnight after attending a wedding reception here. We arrived from the church service at about 2.30 and were able to go straight to the room to drop our bags. The standard room was small with a small balcony, limited “wardrobe” space, too much unnecessary furniture, but a comfortable bed, a kettle with teas, coffee, hot... More

We stayed over on the evening of our daughters wedding. We stayed in the Dudson room which was lovely. The bed was large and very comfortable. The furniture is in keeping with this beautiful old house. Really great mirrors in the toilet and shower room that allow you to view the back of your hair. Something many larger hotels don't...

Had a rare day out with my daughter and as we both work full time we decided to treat ourselves to a lunch out. The Upper House was a complete high quality experience from the moment we walked through the door. We were met and greeted immediately, we hadn't booked and had not been there for Lunch before. We were... More
