“Beautiful place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here last year , arrived late in the evening and were greeted by Anna and made to feel welcome immediately , the place was beautiful and food was great even tho we turned up late Anna still cooked a great meal . After our meal we were shown to our room which was stunning a large roll top bath and sky tv , it was really cosy . the floor boards were a bit noisy but not enough to spoil your break . Then we were shown the indoor pool area which was amazing , such a relaxed vibe . We will return . Loved it .

Stayed April 2013, traveled as a couple

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Hi I spent two days there with the family at this quiet retreat.

It is one hour drive from London and just off the M1 so very convenient.

It wasn't the best organised place but the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The heated indoor pool was excellent and the rooms were very warm and cosy. The living room had a nice log fire and a friendly cat called 'Bob'. Lots of interesting books in the living room on spiritual matters. Also there is a nice friendly family pub in Everdon - 10 mins drive - called The Plough. Where they do nice food if you want to go out.

I would recommend it for families, people who just want to chill and meet other spiritually curious people.

Room Tip: Room 18 has a flat screen TV, a nice bath tub and is very big - ideal for a family.

Flore village is a small, country village with some beautiful properties. There is plenty of off-road walking to be done from the house, making use of the Nene Way and Jurassic Way. Country roads are small and windy, and the area is undulating, making it great for cycle rides. We are close to several places of interest including Althorpe House, ...read moreHouse rulesRelax and make yourself at home. We ask that the house be treated with respect.
