My partner and I spent an unforgettable 2 nights at Church Hill House. We attended a wedding at Spain's Hall on 18 November and arrived the night before. Everything was perfect from start to finish, right down to the weather.
The owners, Susan and Richard, as many reviewers have noted, were more like old family friends than hosts. We arrived very late (around 11pm) and were welcomed with warm smiles and cold beers.
Breakfast the following morning was delicious and the Green & Blacks hot chocolate was to die for. We were warned about the church bells, but they too were delightful and simply enhanced our village experience.
We stayed in the Tudor suite and couldn't stop talking about how lovely everything was. It's the little touches that made it all so magical: the wooden beams, sloping floors, log fire in the lounge and of course the secret mini fridge hidden behind a picture on the wall.
Our only regret was not having enough time to explore the local area. To be truthful, we could've gone out, but we couldn't drag ourselves out of our warm, cosy room! Hey hum, I guess we'll just have to re-visit. And d'you know what? I can't wait.
