Over all the facilities and staff excellent along with the beautiful surrounding countryside and walks, food outstanding - compliments to the chef/s. Stayed in a Carriage room spacious & clean. However the only down side is the room was so close to the main road which was busy though out the night. Road noise travelled through the room and a motorbike/s were up and down the road some several times ended up being shattered from lack of sleep due to the traffic noise. Not that it was a major concern the TV was small for the size of the room and not all the channels worked and no guide on how to use the TV or information explaining the limited availability of certain channels such as ITV. The young lady at check out had asked how was our stay and I explained the above (barr the TV issue) to which was meet with the response "it's not a complaint they ever had before." Light sleeper was mentioned and I stated I live not far from a rail track and I actually slept better and added it’s such a shame as everything else was so brilliant and I added may be if something could be done it would be to sound proof the room.
Due to the traffic noise issues feel the room was over priced for the location so close to the road. Would we stay again? - Only if the room was sound proofed or maybe one which is further from the roadside may be better. If this where the case we would have no hesitation in rating with 5 Stars and would consider it value for money.
