Reviewed March 16, 2013

Spent a wonderful night here with friends even though our original booking have been lost. Made to feel very welcome, lovely rooms. Dinner was amazing and I loved the unusual watercress ice cream for dessert. Finished with the lovely cheeseboard and a glass of port. Can't wait to go back again.

A welcome greeting on arriving.We were on a Travel Zoo offer so good value for money.

Our room was smaller than expected having read reviews about king size beds etc. Having booked 3 months ahead were we in last available room ? There was no coffee in the room or homemade biscuits as described.We arrived at 5pm so a biscuit would have been great. Wi fi was explained to us but no explanation in manual.(The page was missing) We did ask for coffee and code but we shouldnt have had to! No conditioner in bathroom so did not wash hair and the soap box looked old.

Bed lovely and comfortable.

Food was nice.Gave up waiting for coffee at the end of the evening. Is ice too much to ask for in a Gin and Tonic?

We did enjoy our night away and so a thank you to you both.

Perhaps I have been a fussy on this review but these little things could so easily be improved on.

Mark and Emmanuelle make your stay feel just like 'home from home', with the added bonus of five star dining! Provenance is show for all the dishes served, with the closest being, just across the road. The Gold Hill room was tastefully decorated and the bed very comfortable. Truly a very enjoyable stay.

We have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at La Fosse, we were greeted by Mark on arrival who showed us to our beautiful room. The room was very spacious with lots of very thoughtful touches, full of character. Our evening meal was exceptional using all local produce where possible, washed down with a bottle of wine ( which my husband really got the taste for) selected from the wine list. We then finished off with the cheese platter and port. Mark explained how each cheese was made and where it came from. Morning breakfast was just as lovely with a wide choice of cereal, toast, fresh fruit and juice and of course full English. Thank you mark for a memorable stay.

Made to feel like you are visiting friends, the hosts work very hard to provide quality comfortable accommodation and a very enjoyable dining experience using varied locally sourced produce to serve you lovely freshly cooked dishes including an optional award winning cheese board. Treat yourself with a stay here.

I visited twice during one UK visit and each visit found Mark and Emmanuelle so friendly and eager to help me with ideas for my stay. I was grateful for their local knowledge but also not only found the food they served divine but I very much valued their commitment to local produce. Still talking about the cheese platter that had 7 out of 10 cheese uk pasteurised - unheard of in Oz.

We have just spent a most enjoyable evening here with friends. Our accommodation was extremely comfortable. Our dinner was delicious with ingredients sourced locally. Nothing was too much trouble for Mark and Emmanuelle our hosts. Do go if you haven't already. It is well worth it.
