My partner and I came here based on Trip Advisor recommendations, and were not disappointed. On a grey, drizzly Sunday afternoon in October we were welcomed with tea and cakes and a blazing log fire, which set us up for a gentle walk along the stream, and past the church to the lake, where we watched fish rising to catch the late afternoon flies, and admired the idyllic Autumn colours.
Our room was the very secluded Room 9, at the top of the house: super bed and linen, White Company bathroom supplies, fresh fruit, good biscuits, excellent tea and coffee, and our own cafetiere.
For dinner we went for the tasting menu: it was £60 each, but worth it- seven exciting and interesting juxtapositions and surprises, from scallop and black pudding, then light-as-air cheese fritters with fennel and pomegranate, to perfect fish, perfect game, and finally a delicate berry souffle with ice-cream mousse. For those not wanting a full bottle (or second full bottle) of wine, the excellent list also offers a carafe of 50cl of a number of wines.
The service was good: all the staff were attentive but unobtrusive; friendly but not obsequious.
Overall- a memorable experience in every way.
