I happened to see the Dec 2005 review of Plumber Manor and felt I had to set the record straight. We stayed there two nights in Sept 2005 while doing a grand tour of south england(we also stayed at Ston Easton and The Lugger Hotel in Cornwall) and had a wonderful time. The location was lovely, and our room in the stable block pretty, clean and comfortable. The food was very good, but what we still remember was the dessert trolley!
One of the best, varied assortment and all delicious. I remember a lemon sponge cake and many yummy chocolate selections...we tried almost all of them to be sure.
The owners and staff were affable, and the black labradors in the drawing room did a great job of entertaining guests before dinner. They will also do "fetch" games in the garden during the day! (All country house hotels should have dogs).
Breakfast was also excellent, the scrambled eggs creamy and nutty with butter. Yum!
All in all we had a great time and would love to go back...its a good location for touring.
We recommend it heartily!!
