My wife and I returned to Budmarsh for an unannounced wedding anniversary romantic weekend. As ever, the welcome was efficient and friendly, the allocated room was the honeymoon suite and the sunny Sunday afternoon showed off the gardens beautifully. Room is excellently furnished and has its own outdoor private spa bath to relax in before preparing for the Chef's superb... More

We love to break away for a weekend every now and again and try to visit a new place every time. We didn't know much about Budmarsh before we arrived except for the fact that it's in the countryside and that they brag about their cuisine. Well they may! I enjoy a good meal from time to time but dining... More

Me and my partner visited for a weekend to really experience some tranquility and good food.....and we certainly got both. The staff are super friendly and helpful without being around one all the time. The food was excellent and chef Chris can really be proud of his achievements. A special thanks to Albert, who really went out of his way... More

I traveled there to attend a workshop for a whole week. I didn't even miss home. Tranquil, beautiful, very scenic. Very relaxing and helpful staff. Very romantic, will definitely come again but this time with a partner.

An absolutely beautiful venue with superb food. The picnic blankets and pillows were all laid out for us under a huge tree with a gorgeous view. Service is efficient and unobtrusive. I highly recommend Budmarsh for a great day out.

Pleasant getaway for a day or two. Pity about the 3rd-degree/bureaucratic hassles on arrival, which rather spoiled the mood: Does check-in REALLY have to take 15 minutes and 3 presentations and computer entries of a credit card and ID (once for “incidentals” without which anything ordered would apparently have to be paid for in cash?!). Our “credit worthiness” was established... More

Hubby and I went on a babymoon to Budmarsh and had the most relaxing time. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the food divine. Our baby arrived earlier than expected by the following weekend..so that was the last weekend my hubby and I were alone. Definitely memorable!

My Husband and I recently spent 2 romantic nights at Budmarsh to enjoy another part of our anniversary celebrations. We loved our time at this fine establishment. The dinner and breakfast were exceptional, meeting the chef and discussing the meal was an added bonus. The only downside was there weren't sufficient places to take long walks in close proximity to... More
