This hotel is only 5 miles from our house so visits here are quite frequent. We usually visit for afternoon tea. Either in the music room where they really expect you to order the full English tea especially on the weekend.

Just returned from a wonderfully relaxing stay here with my daughter. I had been before about 5 years ago, for a friend's Hen Party weekend. I booked an overnight stay direct on the hotel's website, dinner and breakfast included with a small supplement per person to have dinner in The Restaurant.

We booked a dinner, bed and breakfast direct with their website for a night away! We were happily surprised to hear we had a free upgrade to a country view and was given the opportunity to upgrade further to a suite for an extra £45 which we did!
