The Hall has been converted to apartments and we rented the downstairs areas. This consisted of three bedrooms, all with en suite, a wonderful large dining room/modern kitchen and a large sitting room. My husband and two boys, aged 12 and 9 could watch the Olympics and chill out while I sat at the back of the room with a drink in the chairs over looking the formal gardens. Perfect.
The accommodation was spotless - that housekeeper deserves a gold medal herself. It made us feel relaxed as if we were in our own home. The rooms all have high, ornate ceilings and huge windows with a feel of Victorian grandeur (and plenty of heating and hot water for modern convenience!)
The kitchen is very modern and extremely well equipped to a good standard. The gardens are really well maintained. Great for frisbee, cricket, football etc and a safe distance from the windows. I spent very pleasant a time either admiring the gardens curled up in 'my chair' or by gentle strolls on drier days.
The information booklet in the sitting room contains suggested walks. We followed the 3 mile route which was just enough for us townies, across fields and woods.
There's a supermarket not far and excellent restaurants, the Fetherston Arms, Highand Drove and Fox and Pheasant to name but a few quality, friendly places.
All in all, this place was far better than I could have imagined and I would definitely recommend it to families and couples. Thanks for a great week.
