My husband and I have just returned from a nights stay at The Pheasant as a quick escape from our busy business.
We stayed in Plum Cottage, which, if like us you want privacy it is perfect. The room is well appointed with everything you need, including an honesty basket of goodies and complimentary Damson Gin. Unfortunately the weather did not allow us to make use of the private terrace, but would be perfect for evening drinks or just sitting and relaxing during the day. We did make use of the pool which was a lovely touch and really helped to get us in a chilled out mood.
The bar and lounge have open fires with big squashy sofas you can hunker down in with a drink and read the paper or the wonderful interiors magazines (a personal favourite of mine!!) there is also a diverse library to choose from.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt at home and well looked after. The staff were all lovely and knowledgable regarding food and wines and nothing was too much trouble.
We ate in the restaurant and choose the Asparagus Tasting menus with wines to match - this proved to be an excellent choice and our waiter was able to talk us through the pairings and also how the food had been cooked. Even though the restaurant was full we felt as if we were getting personally service and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
I had one of the best nights sleep I have had in a long time and as it is so peaceful you are not disturbed by any traffic noise.
Breakfast was equally good with plenty of choice, as well as a selection of newspapers.
We are both agreed that we can not wait to return and experience what The Pheasant does so well - a huge thank you to the team for providing such a wonderful relaxing environment and helping us forget work for 24 hours!
