We did not spend the night here, we just enjoyed a great birthday meal. A terrific situation full of beautiful touches in a fabulous country house with grounds. The food is chosen from a fixed price menu with choices of 3 starters,3 mains and 3 desserts but a vegetarian menu can be requested which was a joy to behold! It... More

What a beautiful and intimate place, with just five rooms and fantastic food. Loved the wood panelling, the beautiful furniture, wonderful fabrics and the roaring fires in the lounge. Also, Ben (the assistant chef) was so amenable and welcoming, even though he's not the main host. My kind of place; I will not hesitate to recommend to those who love... More

This is a "restaurant with rooms", but what rooms and grounds! The food is not "cutting edge" but consists of good ingredients, thoughtfully combined and excellently cooked. The service is informal but efficient and friendly so that it is like staying in a friend's country house.

We had to stop the car in the drive to admire this beautiful building, set in magnificent manicured grounds. We walked through the 500 year door and met Rebecca and Olly who greeted us and made us very welcome. The decor matches the atmosphere of the building and is spotless. Our bedroom was the finest we have slept in, Four... More

A historic, yet modernised, beautifully furnished, relaxed, and stylish hotel. A wonderful property set in very well maintained interesting grounds, lots to see and enjoy around. The personality of the hotel is driven by Olly and Rebecca and their informal, friendly yet robust approach to hosting guests, you feel welcome and appreciated, relaxed and at home, yet pampered too. Dinner... More

Last night four of us had dinner here. I would say that we are a tough crowd. We have all travelled extensively and two of us enjoy visiting top restaurants all over the UK. Food and wine being a hobby! Only good things were said on the way home about the superb food, service and welcome. Every single bite was... More

Has to be one of the best UK Hotels. It is hard to describe. Imagine you have won the lottery and are fortunate to buy a country retreat. THIS WOULD BE IT. The setting is wonderful, no views as such but the grounds are simply stunning yet quite ordinary. The house is old and modern, clean and bright. The Hosts... More

From arrival to departure everything was 10/10, superb hosts, fab food, room top class, can't say any more, will be going back! Even have a croquet lawn for a bit of fun in the lovely weather. Well done to Ollie and his great team, thank you.

A real treat on our doorstep! This venue is just a couple of miles down the road so I have not and probablly will not experience the hotel side of the operation. However, I recently went here on a Friday evening with my husband and 4 friends. We all very much enjoyed the setting, atmosphere and the food. Pros (many... More

Olly & Rebecca are absolutely fantastic, the place is absolutely fantastic, the food is fantastic. In fact everything is fantastic, I'm normally quite fussy and pick fault but I have truly been silenced by this place. It really is a hidden gem and we will return. Olly & Rebecca - thank you.
