Previous reviewers have described the quiet, sumptuous house built in 1929 by a wealthy tea family, still retaining all the interesting period furnishings and pictures. The garden is equally splendid but partly marred by a swimming pool on the front lawn with its uninviting water. There's a small, quiet shrine in the back garden. We stayed just 24 hours, but long enough to have lunch, supper and breakfast which were very good and served in the grand dining room. There were plenty of staff for our stay; the head man spoke adequate English and the others had just enough to get by. Our bedroom was huge and comfortable. The bathroom’s shower and washbasin were inadequate by modern standards and it wouldn’t spoil the house to upgrade these, indeed it would enhance the place significantly. We were well looked after in an otherwise lovely house, although I don’t think more than a two night stay could be recommended.
