We stayed for a Saturday night in January. The weather was dismal, but as soon as we arrived at the hotel our spirits lifted. A genuinely warm welcome from the receptionist and a roaring log fire greeted us. We stayed in Oak, which is a very large room with a huge bathroom, complete with whirlpool bath and large free-standing rain shower. The bed was comfy, and there was absolutely no noise at night which make for a perfect sleep.
The food was lovely; the venison for dinner was perfectly cooked, and there was a great range of delicious fruits and pastries at breakfast, along with a very filling cooked breakfast choice.
The grounds are impressive, and we had a bit of a wander despite the wind and rain to have a look at the owls.
All of the staff were fantastic, and I can't find even the smallest fault with any aspect of our stay. I can't wait to go back.
