From the minute you turn off the road into the drive you know something special awaits.
You glimpse it through the trees, you arrive and it immediately says 'welcome'.
Looking beyond the slightly 'dated' decor of the reception area and drawing rooms I could only revel in the comfortable ambience that made me wish it was all mine.
Quietly unassuming but thoroughly efficient staff, a bedroom that I wanted to stay all day in, superb food and perhaps slightly unusual - meaning not a common occurence - other guests who were both interesting and interested allowing for very enjoyable post dinner drinks.
Although I was only able to stay one night - not nearly long enough - it was the highlight of my week. Certainly not enough time to enjoy all that this exquisite hotel offers.
