100% DISAGREE with the review below. I do not usually contribute to tripadvisor, but having seen the last review, I felt I would have to reply!
We spent a Friday and Saturday night at Hardwick House with a group of friends. We received fantastic service for the whole weekend - Breakfasts cooked to order just the way you want it, local restaurants and taxis recommended and booked, a bucket of ice provided to chill the drinks whilst lying around by the pool..... there was nothing that was too much trouble.
The garden at Hardwick House makes this a fantastic summer weekend break. What better than a game of cricket on the lawn, followed by a swim in the pool and then finding a shady spot beneath a tree to read the weekend papers? Perfect!
The issue about the communal area in the review below is pretty odd. Rob, the owner, was at pains to tell us on arrival that we could use any area of the house that we wanted - and we did. If Rob and Ruth's little girls are using the pool table - all you have to do is ask and they will gladly make way! Never did we feel like we were in the way of the family.
All in all - I would defi recommend Hardwick House. Came away feeling it was great value for money and a lovely spot for a weekend break.
