We stayed at the Stock Hill hotel for 2 nights on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis at the beginning of May. The house is set in a superb park with many delightful features (mature trees, stream, pond, old statues). There is plenty of free parking. The garden around the house is charming with a walled kitchen garden. The house... More

A hotel that looks after it's guests, down to the finest detail. Nina (front of house) and Peter (the chef) have made something special that makes every visit a real treat. You are treated as if you are visiting their home. Try a stay/visit at Christmas - I have never been to anywhere like this! My thanks to them and... More

We just had lunch at this beautiful, country Hotel and Restaurant. We were greeted on arrival by a charming young lady who welcomed us into the house where the owner greeted and guided us into the delightful drawing room where our friends were hosting their 40th Wedding Anniversary party. It was a most enjoyable and relaxed lunch in a beautiful... More

Stock Hill House is a lovely old Victorian Country House Hotel in 11 acres of grounds. Bought by its owners, Peter and Nita Hauser, 29 years ago as an empty shell, they have filled it with an eclectic range of antiques. We have not stayed at the hotel, but have dinned there several times, over the past few years. Peter,... More

A wonderful Sunday lunch experience - echoing all the previous comments about the high standard of food and service. On the latter point, the standard of service was such as is rarely found these days - very attentive but not at all invasive: no hovering but always there just at the right moment! Thank you very much. No comment on... More

We were thoroughly spoilt during our all too brief three night stay at this lovely county house hotel. Situated in extensive grounds in quiet countryside (but not far from major routes) the hotel is a spacious early Victorian property which has been sympathetically fitted with all the modern facilities needed for twentyfirst century travellers. Rooms are large and each is... More

Idyllically situated Victorian house in quiet extensive gardens. Opulent fixtures and fittings in lounge, dining room and some bedrooms; although 1 bedroom still had 70s tiles in the bathroom. Our tvs also seemed as old and most of the time didn't work properly. On the plus side, the food was reasonable but the constant hovering while eating was OTT. On... More
