Our second stay at Rickety Bridge and it certainly did not disappoint. The bed was so comfortable and the breakfast delicious with so much choice. Very well looked after by Martha and the team. We enjoyed time spent around the pool with our friends and felt extremely privileged to be staying at such an exclusive house.

We stayed in the burgundy suite. We went on the wine tram (see separate review). This stops at Rickety Bridge near the end so we stopped here... More

We were very fortunate to receive a Giftbox voucher. Rickety was fully booked for the weekend and they booked us at their sister farm – Bass Provance. We were pleasantly surprised by the setting and quality of accommodation. The skylight bathroom and stunning bed made us feel like we were on honeymoon again! The voucher included a free dinner and... More

We had previously done the wine tasting and also had lunch at Rickety Bridge. We therefore knew that the wine and food were outstanding - we can only recommend the wonderful chocolate dessert. We chose Rickety Bridge for our wedding beginning of April 2014 and it surpassed anything we were hoping for. The location is beautiful. The Manor House that... More

We stayed in the 'Manor House' at Rickety Bridge, what a beautiful house. There are only 3 bedrooms in the manor house which makes it feel like home (within the grounds there is further accomodation) The attention to detail is perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for Martha the housekeeper, she was a little gem. A must is to have... More
