We have never stayed away from home before but havng lost my Step-Father earlier in the year it seemed the right thing to do. We have eaten on a number of occasions at The Swan and being in such a beautful location we felt that it fitted our needs. We were not disappointed, where to begin!
A wonderful welcome with mulled wine and afternoon tea in front of a roaring fire. We were delighted with our accomodation my husband and I had The Constable Suite and my Mum and Daughter The Great Green Room both were beautifully appointed with toweling robes for the duration of the stay, a nice selection of toiletries and to our delight a gift from Santa. The champagne reception Christmas Eve followed by a gorgeous dinner was a wonderful way to start the Christmas break. Christmas morning was lovely we abstained from breakfast prefering to save room for lunch ( a wise decision) but found a lovely spot in the lounge where we settled down and played cards, we endulged in cocktails which were gorgeous and then had canapies and champagne before Christmas lunch.
Lunch was AMAZING, the weekend continued and was perfect, the only complaint would be the generous food portions which you could no resist!!!!! Our dogs were warmly welcomed which was lovely as they are a huge part of our family.
A definant must if you ever get the chance.
Thank you to all the staff who were so friendly and kind.
