We stayed for two nights in this Charming country estate and its really excellent staff. Set in beautiful gardens. Our room was very spacious and elegantly decorated with our own patio area and garden which lead down to a lake with woodland at the back.
Dining time for dinner was set in advance and you pre-order dinner at breakfast time. The dining staff were very accommodating as one of our party requested steak instead of the set menu. This was readily done.
One or two disappointing points. Our pre arranged laundry which was given in early in the morning had not been done. When we went to collect it following a full day out, we were told that it had not been collected and we were given the bag of dirty laundry back. This was a huge let down as we had been relying on it being done as per the arrangements.
On the morning of our departure we arose to discover we did not have any electricity or water. This was rectified following a call to reception and a wait for someone to come to switch a generator on. This also resulted in having to settle up in cash due to the credit card machine not operating due to the electricity outage. We learned later that this had been a prearranged outage.
