The owners made us (the two of us and our border collie!)so welcome. Although they major on weddings at weekends and so have considerable space and facilities, they manage to maintain a warm and cosy atmosphere for guests through the week. Good quality food prepared skilfully meant we didn't consider going out to eat. Dinners and breakfasts were excellent. The... More

The most incredible hospitality I have every experienced. We have been going to the lavender house for a few years now and every year we are welcomed back like family. Nothing is ever too much for the wonderful staff and the hotel and garden are beautiful. Looking forward to many more happy visits.

What can I say - a really lovely friendly place cosy and welcoming. The owners Keith, Carol and Andrew have done a brilliant job making their hotel into somewhere you feel like a friend not a room number. This is their home not just their business and they spend all their time lovingly taking care of it and their guests.... More

We stayed here with a Groupon deal for a 2night midweek break. We'd had a poor experience with a previous deal so we didn't know what to expect. With Lavender House we were impressed with our room (6ft bed in warm, comfortable, cosy room with view of moorland in the distance), and even more impressed with our evening meal. The... More

We have previously stayed here as a family too, they were very accommodating & made the children feel very welcome too. Would definitely recommend it to... More

We cannot speak highly enough of the staff and service we received for our daughter's wedding on Valentines Day. The car arrived to take her to church and started a memorable day. The venue even in February had such beautiful views. Everybody's needs were catered for from start to finish and it was great to enjoy breakfast with those who... More

We have just recovered from what I can only describe as a truly magical day "Our Wedding", from start to finish our wedding was a beautiful experience. Keith, Carol,Louise and Andrew couldn't have made it more special. The venue looked wonderful full of warmth and beautifully decorated for us, with the added Christmas decorations making it our magical day. Keith... More
