We stayed two nights with our South African relatives while touring the Cotswolds. A very old and charming building, and a thoroughly warm welcome from the proprietors. The rooms have great style, and are surprisingly modern and airy - this despite the fact that we had one of the oldest rooms (Charlotte Bronte) at the front of the building. A lovely bathroom - although the water pressure on the shower was rather lacking in force! Very little traffic on the A46 meant we slept very well - despite having to keep the windows open during the heatwave.
The food in the restaurant was fabulous. We ate in both nights, and not one of us had anything that disappointed. Not only did it all taste great, but the presentation was also excellent. As the weather was so hot, we ate outside on one evening, and so could appreciate the extensive garden and grounds. There is also a decking area where drinks and meals can be taken. Breakfast was of similar quality to dinner, and set us up well and truly for our days of sightseeing.
The staff were all friendly and efficient. After two days I felt that we were being treated more like house guests than paying public, and greatly enjoyed spending time talking to Don and his wife - who both have a very dry sense of humour.
