A little peeling plaster here and there. The window frames rusting, and a new Labrador puppy...... It was lovely to see that our one of our favourite places to stay in the UK has not changed and that the charm and atmospere that Plumber generates is intact. That said, we were impressed with the updated bathroom and with the TV... More

This hotel probably hasn't changed since it was opened which isn't necessarily a bad thing, ads to the charm. Lovely setting, helpful staff and the food was great. The dessert trolley was out of this world and great selection at breakfast. Will come again. PS Free wi-fi too.

My parents lived nearby so we all enjoyed many excellent dinners over the years but had no excuse to stay there. Since the parents died, we have stayed at Plumber for special occasions/breaks. The accommodation is impeccable but what is so impressive is the Prideaux Brunes' ability always to sustain such a reliably high standard of cuisine and hospitality. If... More

We stayed here once again although this time in the main house. Everything about Plumber Manor has to be superlative. The location, the decoration, the restaurant, the breakfast and most important the hosts. Once again thank you for having us.

We stayed here while in the area for a wedding reception. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds with a stream running through the gardens. The welcome from the owners and staff was excellent and could not have been more hospitable, the hotel also helped arrange a taxi for us to the wedding reception which was no easy feat in... More

We visited with a big group of 12 and after some nice drinks in the lounge, we were invited to sit in a great private room at the back of the main house. It looked to be an old cellar or storage room of sorts with an arched ceiling decorated quaintly, brightening the room up. £30 for three courses was... More

We visited Plumber for a special family party. My in-laws' 65th wedding anniversary last week was a wonderful occasion. Everyone was really welcoming and friendly, they treated us as if we were their favourite people in the world and they were to so pleased to see us. Lunch was a menu chosen in advance - smoked salmon wrapped round trout... More

All is well at this family owned and run country house hotel - a well oiled system tried and tested - overseen by some dedicated and very well trained staff. We were up graded to a large comfortable room at the front of the house - well appointed with a superb bed and aproper sized bath. We felt relaxed and... More
