I visited overnight, with my parents. They had the Garden Suite, (their second stay, as we have family in Saxilby) and I stayed in a twin room in the main house. I simply wanted somewhere to sleep to make our whistlestop tour logistically possible, but from the moment I spoke to Gordon on the phone to make the booking I should have realised that we were going to get so much more! I cannot praise Gordon and Margaret highly enough. Their welcome was second to none and throughout our brief stay nothing was too much trouble (advice on where to eat, printing and annotating maps for me ....even finding a special pin for my poppy!!) The rooms were impeccable, the white cotton bedding was pristine, there were warmed fluffy white towels and bathrobes and even "The White Company" toiletries in the ensuite bathroom!! The attention to detail is remarkable, even down to a choice of hot chocolates on the drinks tray. Breakfast was extraordinary, I have never been offered so many choices!!
It wouldn't be exagerating to say that Orchard Cottage easily exceeded some 5* hotels we've stayed in!
