We arrived early but our room was ready and what a welcome awaited us! A beautifully decorated and furnished suite of rooms with an extremely comfortable four poster bed piled with cushions, an ensuite bathroom and a separate claw foot bath tub.
All the finishing touches were exquisite from the stack of fluffy white towels tied with organza ribbon, the Art Nouveau lamps, the ornaments and paintings, to the pretty wooden box of chocolates on the bed. Our suite was well named "Serenity"
A welcome pack with wild boar pate, a whole fruit cake and other goodies and a fridge packed with wines plus of course a hospitality tray with special teas.
We relaxed on the beautiful sofa munching pate and cake, watching a modern flat screen television before going to explore.
Ric and Maggie showed us round their beautiful hotel and every part of it was as good as the rest - there is a fine snooker room/games room where we tried our hands at being Dennis Taylor (!)and also a beautifully furnished lounge. Everywhere, including in our suite, there are pictures by Josephine Wall the famous artist who has provided the 'enchanted' theme for this friendly hotel.
Relaxing music accompanied breakfasts in the conservatory overlooking the swimming pool and hot tub, with the best home-made fish cakes my husband had ever tasted on the menu.
The piece de resistance was watching badgers and a fox in the garden in the evening with Ric and Maggie, so tame you could take flash photos of them, the animals I mean!
Ric and Maggie were so friendly and made us feel really at home. We didn't want to leave and promised ourselves we would return again soon - dying to see the final part of the enchanted garden. Check out the website -it's charming!
