I wanted to treat my other half to a relaxing weekend away in elegant and comfortable surroundings. As this was also a birthday treat for a lady who has everything I knew I'd better get the accomodation right. The location of Tetbury with all it's restaurants, antique, clothes and chi-chi shops was perfect, the garden tour of Highgrove was booked, and so were two nights with Brock at York House.
My expectations and perhaps most importantly, that of m'lady were far exceeded by the warmth, hospitality and good humour we were treated to. The room was spacious clean and quiet, the king-size bed very comfortable and the bathroom an excellent shower/bath combination.
At breakfast time, Brock was most accomodating to my other half''s rather specific requests concerning boiled eggs and the timing thereof. On both occaisions madam's egg was done to perfection. Me, I was just happy with the full English which didn't stint in any measure.
We will most certainly return. That's the yardstick I measure by. York House is that good.
