We only stayed only for one night, but we wished we'd booked for longer. It is a lovely quaint place, we had a great room old fashioned elegance. We had an excellent meal in the restaurant which had a very good menu. Will definitely be back.

Stayed in the Treetops Treehouse in the grounds of this hotel but we didn't know until our 3rd night there that our accommodation wasn't part of the hotel, just owned by the same people. Therefore we shouldn't have expected our accommodation to be serviced. Shame really because it is a totally unique experience and was somewhat spoilt by this (and... More

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
