Stayed early January, as a little wind down treat, after the hustle and bustle of Christmas. We spent the morning getting lost in Gisburn forest, (an experience which made us fully appreciate the leisure facilities in the afternoon). After our swim, we retired to the lounge where we experienced a pleasant afternoon tea, Served in front of the open fire which was very welcoming on a cold windy day. Although not full, the hotel had plenty of guests to create a warm friendly atmosphere.
Pre dinner drinks in the bar before being shown to our table. Not much to say about the evening meal except the service and food was absolutely superb; moreover the recommend wine was quite divine and complemented the evening perfectly. The breakfast menu is quite extensive, with the usual ‘full English’ being supplemented (as seems to be the norm now) by a vast array of vegetarian and European concoctions.
Our room was in the lodge, it had a massive bed and lovely panoramic views over the 22 acre garden. We kept an eye out for the deer but did not see them.
Stirk house was just what the doctor order and we definitely will return. Although to take advantage of Stirk house relaxed atmosphere. next time it will be for a couple of days. The complimentary biscuits on departure was another plus. Absolutely delightful experience in lovely surroundings. serviced by Welcoming and friendly staff - thank you.
