Our first time at Stock Hill, we booked online and wanted a country house with character but not stuffy and dusty. We found a beautifully run immaculate full of character and amazing mirrors in every room hotel. The staff were so helpful and friendly. We ate in the hotel restaurant and it was a totally unforgettable experience, full of charm... More

Ideal venue for a leisurely dining experience in the relaxing surroundings of a country house hotel. Expect excellent food, excellent attention and service, and take your time to enjoy the meal. Peter Hauser specialises in Austrian cuisine and the menu has a selection of Austrian dishes to excite your tastebuds. This is NOT pub grub so don't expect pub grub... More

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
