A very enjoyable couple of nights spent here. We had dinner at the restaurant and the food plus service were fantastic. The grounds and accommodation are extremely well presented. The restaurant is next to a pond/garden area and the 'pavilions' (cabins/rooms) are spaced out amongst the gardens providing quiet and privacy. There is a log fire which we made use of as the weather wasn't great while we were there and the best bit... a hot tub outside. Breakfast was included in our package and was lovely. We also took part in the cooking school and this is well worth doing if you are interested. The class was good with plenty of advice and you cook up a small feast! We didn't use the pool so can't comment on that. The Spa was excellent and is very new. This place isn't cheap but you get what you pay for.. Delicious food, comfortable surrounds, good amenities and excellent, attentive service.
