We stayed here at the beginning of our UK trip. My husband had been ill the previous night and was exhausted after the drive up. Kath and her staff were very concerned about his wellbeing and offered to help in any way necessary. Even the chef was concerned that he would not be able to enjoy his dinner! Fortunately after a good sleep he soon recovered and we were able to enjoy the magnificent location in the forest and the food! We sat in the lounge for tea and cake with a lovely fire, and the wifi was perfect. Our dinner here was the best on our trip - better than Jamie's Italian and Heston's pub at Bray! :) Wonderful tender lamb and fresh vegetables, followed by beautifully presented lemon curd tart, honeycomb and strawberries/ apricot souffle tart and apricot sorbet. Breakfast was also very special, including an amazing omelette with haddock and cheese sauce. We were very happy with the cottage bedroom - yes, it was quite small, and didn't have the extras a previous reviewer mentioned but we don't need those - the beds were very comfortable, the shower was great (we don't need a bath), and I don't iron at all on holiday! This was one of our best stays and we would definitely stay here again!
