We stayed here one Saturday night as friends were getting married nearby. I found this place via tripadvisor and once again you triumphed!
The house is incredible, it's like staying in a stately home but without all the pomp and circumstance. Our room was beautiful, very comfy bed and very clean throughout. On the Sunday morning, after a delicious - really delicious - breakfast, we had a guided tour of the house which was absolutely fascinating. Eileen is a wonderful lady, very generous of spirit and a brilliant cook.
So generous, in fact, that when I left my glasses behind (they had slipped underneath the wardrobe) she posted them back to me first class, which cost over £6. I honestly feel as if I have made a new friend, and we are currently trying to find a good excuse to get back there as soon as possible...
I recommend West Stow Hall to anyone who wants a truly British experience. They don't come any better than this.
