We stayed in June for an Arts & Crafts tour of the area. Our room was large, comfortable & on the first floor with a view over the House gardens; it was quiet. The food was good and plenty of it. The packed lunches were a novel idea as we had not had an HF holiday before. Jane, our leader... More

Stayed for 4 nights as part of HF walking group. Very comfortable room in Windrush Cottage annex. Creaky floors but that added to the charm. The staff and service were excellent.

Harrington House is run by HFHolidays providing walking and other holidays in the House. The rooms are of variable comfort and standard. Our room in the house was excellent - everything we needed with a great view over the gardens. The guided walks were well organized. Breakfasts and packed lunches offer great choices. The dinners were a little disappointing. Fish... More

We visited Harrington House as part of a members' special event. We have come to expect good standards of food after having stayed at several HF houses, but this was not as good as other places. The main course especially was poor, and this was the opinion of all those who had the roast beef on our table. The meat... More

I stayed here on an HF short break walking holiday which was very well run and enjoyable. The hotel itself had something the character of a youth hostel for senior citizens. The other guests who were mainly Canadian were almost all over sixty. The hotel was tailored for walking holidays with a boot room and drying facilities. Meals were served... More

I was on a 4 night guided walk break, with 3 days of walking in the surrounding countryside. We were given the choice of three different levels of walks every day, ranging from easy to medium to long. I could not fault anything at all about the break. Everyone was so friendly, the staff, the guests, the walk leaders -... More

The perfect antidote to an over indulgent Christmas. Staff were mostly attentive. Food was more than passable and the HF guides were all exceptional people who obviously cared passionately about their given tasks. Room was warm, comfortable and well equipped. Huge bath (!) but would have liked a stand-up shower as well. Food quality fell a little short of haut... More

Harrington House is an historic country house and so has a certain olde worlde charm. We stayed on a weekend break with HF Holidays. Our room was of a good size and well-appointed, with television, coffee and tea-making facilities and a clock with mp3 player connection, slippers and bathrobes. Décor was up to date. There was adequate storage for two... More
