We stayed for four nights at this lovely dog-friendly hotel in a very comfortable and spacious room (no. 19) that even had its own French windows leading onto a private patio. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, and one was under the impression that nothing was too much trouble for them. As we were half-board, we enjoyed a fabulous... More

We spent a few days here, fishing, walking and eating good food. It is extremely relaxing and very dog friendly. This extended to the staff and other guests. There was plenty of dog walking around and in the grounds. We were completely at ease. The food was very good with good accompanying wines. The fishing, whether you chose to be... More

Just what the doctor ordered after a very long day at work, beautiful room backing on to the lovely gardens which were so peaceful , once settled in my room I arranged to have dinner in the restaurant, something I don't normally do when travelling alone. The menu has so much choice and the quality of the food is excellent,... More

The pub was a mix of old and new. It was clean and a nice ace to be. Usual carvery joints and veg but of a high quality and well cooked. I really enjoyed my meal and hope to return. The puddings looked great but I had no room left.

Stayed at the Fox and Hounds as I had a business meeting nearby. The first thing to say is the surrounding countryside is fantastic and the hotel is nestled in the trees. The atmosphere is very laid back, I could imagine being on a walking holiday here, but unfortunately not to be for this stay. My room was good, small... More
