We visited the Wrea Head back in 2004 and almost booked it as our wedding venue ..but I wanted a view of the sea ..so we promised ourselves we would return to this lovely spot one day ..and did so just recently - Sept 2008 - for our 4th wedding anniversary. We were so delighted we did. The house is an old country house so the rooms are quirky shapes not like modern hotels and we find this a huge plus - the place has character and individuality . Our room ( no 6) wasn't the quietest as its just at the top of the stairs, (but there isn't a lot of traffic after midnight so we didn't mind eavesdropping on the odd conversation!) .. it was beautifully decorated with plush new carpet and heavy drapes, a lovely view and a very comfy bed!
The setting is idyllic - tranquil, peaceful grounds on the edge of a country village with duck pond ..the food is fabulous ..and if you book on the internet as I did there are many bargains to be had..we paid £335 for two of us for two nights Dinner ( 3 course) Bed and Breakfast and a bottle of champagne on arrival, in a Superior double room. ( Always upgrade you really do want the view over those gardens ..the Sept sunset was perfection ..) We felt we got a bargain. The best part of this excellent weekend however was the truly remarkable staff. After our weekend at the dismal George and Dragon last year with the scary shouty manageress I thought I would never venture into N Yorks again- I was so glad I did. Lovely Ann ( the manager ) and her wonderful hard working staff did their upmost from the moment we arrived to the moment we left to be pleasant, friendly, obliging (without being over powering) and genuinely warm and welcoming. (Special mention to Tim for his skills in the lost property finding department!) This is so rare and yet makes such a difference - we could hardly tear ourselves away . And we will definitely be back - see you at Xmas Ann!
