Lovely looking old manor house dating back to 1601, unfortunately the house was gutted by a fire in 1908 with only the exterior walls and the main interior walls intact, so don't expect lovely old looking rooms. I hate being negative but I was disappointed with my room, it was room 14 in the main house but apart from the lovely stone windows there was no other feeling of staying in an ancient manor house, it could have been a room in any modern hotel. I purposely travel all over the county to stay in historical hotels, houses & inns etc so perhaps it is just me looking for the historical impact and other people don't mind modern looking rooms. The reception area seemed historic and there was a lovely old winding stone staircase you could walk up and down which was fun. We paid £135 for bed and breakfast and had come away for our anniversary but I would not eat in the Restaurant because the only main meal for vegetarians was tagliatelle and I will not pay to eat a pasta dish which I find very boring. The lounge menu was not much better with the only choice for vegetarians being warm goats cheese, dried cranberries, beetroot and quinoa for £10.95 - not all vegetarians eat so weirdly. Also on the lounge menu for meat eaters was sausages and mash (£10.95), fish and chips (£10.50) and burger and chips (£10.95), vegetarians can eat all 3, using vegetarian sausages, burgers or as I have had before haloumi cheese in batter as a pretend fish, who seriously wants to eat goats cheese and quinoa!!!! I had rang before coming, realised there was nothing I liked to eat and we had Sunday lunch out, we ended up having tea and scones for 2 for £11 and this served as our evening meal after a filling lunch. Breakfast was good and filling, staff lovely, gardens great but could do with some benches around for people who want to sit on their own. We did have a lovely break, recommended for people who are not as passionate about historical houses as I am and for people who eat meat.
