Well things change I guess, but not always for the better. The rooms are still beautiful, but we did notice that there were spots, like the glaring cracks in the plaster in the dining room, where the undoubtedly daunting maintenance of this old farmstead has not been kept up with. But service is where we noticed the most change. It... More

The property is well off the beaten track and difficult to find, particularly in the dark. Our room, the main house and grounds do not resemble the warm and inviting photos illustrated on the website, which we had been looking forward to on the second stage of our trip, all hotels being part of the Lion Roars Group.

We had a really wonderful winter weekend "night-out" at Hawksmoor House. Beautiful estate. Peaceful. Beautiful gardens. It was really cold, so the fireplace in the lounge was most welcome. Rooms icy, the heater did not make much of difference, but wonderful sheets. Maybe hot-water bottles could be provided with turn-downs. Overall a lovely experience, thank you

Hi There, We are delighted that you were able to enjoy your stay with us. Although the winter chill is decreasing we have those odd evenings where the cold air will just not leave. We try our best with cosy fireplaces and deluxe duvets. We love your thoughtful idea of having hot water bottles for guests to stay extra snug.... More

This lovely estate oozes history; made me wish that I could go back in time and see the property in its original form and use. Friendly inn keepers and staff made our group of 6 feel very welcome. Delicious and hearty breakfast. Rooms were clean and nice. Overall very good experience.

Old style colonial villa - interesting history and for the book buffs more than enough old titles floating around to while away the time. Downers - water pressure was not great in the bath, toilet was blocked at times and the initial tour of the estate was unnecessary. Uppers - Decent breakfast (give more bacon!), great walking opportunities, under floor... More

For our One Year Anniversary the team at Hawksmoor went above and beyond in creating the most incredible weekend for us. The service was literally unbelievable - each person congratulated us personally and added something special in their own way from adding roses, creating a private dinner setting, lighting candles to even turning down the beds!

For value for money Hawksmoor House is unbelievable. We had an extremely friendly welcome and were shown around the gorgeous 18th century house with its stately rooms and beautiful antiques.
