Beautiful, beautiful location and immaculately kept grounds make for an idyllic setting. Professional, friendly staff who were all welcoming. The room/lodge was beautiful and very comfortable.
Unusual offering of dining in separate locations around the house and gardens. You meet up in the lounge for aperitifs and canapés, but are then spirited away to different locations to eat. Must be difficult for the staff trying to get hot food to all those different rooms, and we didn't think it added much to the experience. I can see the attraction if you are on honeymoon, but we quite like interacting with other people if we have the opportunity.
Breakfast was not good. We chose the traditional eggs and bacon option and it was served in a luke warm iron frying pan with steep sides, making it very difficult to eat. Also the bacon was very leathery as if it had been kept warm for some time. Definitely could do better there.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it, with those factors to be taken into account.
