This is a fantastic value overnight treat with a Travel Zoo voucher. Not sure why some of the reviewers were complaining - we thought it was great. Lovely setting (despite the torrential rain when we arrived). Yes, you do meet the recycling bins down the drive - so??? don't we all like to do our bit. OK, maybe they could... More

It seems like everyone staying here when we did, was on some kind of "deal" or "offer", and I can see why. The Lovelady Shield is in dire need of more than a little TLC. (In fact one couple told us they nearly turned around and left when they got down the potholed driveway). The first thing that greats you... More

This must be one of the most value for money experiences we have ever taken. The setting was magnificent! The room was a tad small but acceptable. We were told at time of booking that the deluxe rooms were all booked, as this was available for the deal. But we particularly wanted the date as was our anniversary. It was... More

Overnight last minute stay on a Saturday. Characterful building, pleasant room with lovely view over garden and river. Extensive wine list. Evening meal and breakfast superb using local produce. Staff friendly but professional.

This is a really great Country House Hotel set in beautiful gardens. We went on a Travelzoo Package which was outstanding value from start to finish. We upgraded to the Fourposter (Room 9) which is well worth the extra £20.00. Reception/Greeting was OK we arrived at 3pm and the room was not ready which was a shame, didn't have to... More

A lovely country side hotel in a quiet environment, the food was made fresh with fresh farm products. I loved it there. The rooms were quite cozy and lovely, with sitting rooms and fully fitted kitchens, it was amazing over there.

I enjoyed the two days I was there for. I was there to attend a wedding. The food was great. The scenery was lovely and beautiful. It was a memorable experience. I am definitely going back next year. Looking forward to the trip already.
