We stayed at Beechfield House for 1 night to celebrate our 5th Anniversary and had a truly wonderful stay. We booked via the hotel website and due to reviews I'd read about some of the rooms being a little tatty and awaiting renovation, I sent a request with our booking for one of the nicer rooms to make our stay perfect. On arrival the staff were friendly and polite and the hotel grounds amazing. We were in the room 'Cedar', a large room with 4 poster bed, desk, seating area, flat screen TV, and bathroom with bath and separate shower. The bedlinen was fantastic quality, there were Molton Brown toiletries and the varied selection of tea/coffee in the room all nice touches. There was a little paper peeling from our walls, with noticeable damp patches and the curtain linings were torn but for us it all added to the rustic charm. The barmaid told us she thinks Cedar is the best room in the hotel. It is a feature room and as we’d booked a standard room my email request had earned us a free upgrade.
We dined out that evening so cannot comment on the restaurant but had a drink in the walled garden in the afternoon and explored the grounds. The hotel has made the most of the buildings original features and is full of charm. The grounds are immaculate and well cared for and the outdoor heated swimming pool a great bonus. Whilst the owners are renovating and somewhat modernising the hotel I’m pleased to say the modern aspects are the flat screen TV’s and bathrooms and the décor/furniture around the hotel is all in keeping with the style of the period house. The floorboards do creak and bedroom doors are not very thick but we were not disturbed by any other guests and there was a baby present on our night.
Breakfast was served until 10.30 (sat) which enabled us to have a well needed lie in and guests were divided between 2 rooms. I’m not sure why but it made it more private and personal. There was a buffet with freshly poached fruit, croissants and waffles as well as cereals and freshly squeezed juices and a separate full breakfast menu which was cooked to order. The quality of the food was superb and locally sourced. I couldn’t fault it!
Beechfield House will definitely appeal to those who look for outstanding quality and beautiful surroundings. They are a family hotel but I’d recommend to couples looking for a romantic break (a perfect place to propose) and as a picture perfect wedding venue.
