Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed in one of the spa suites for two nights, nothing was too much trouble for the very friendly and professional staff. The suite was spotlessly clean and well equipped, wish the weather had been a bit warmer so we could have tried out the fire pit in the courtyard but the sauna was very welcome. Loved the bathroom and... More

Lovely rooms including Spa rooms, very comfortable beds, feather pillows, fine quality sheets, lots of small attention to detail things such as fire lighting kit for the outside fire, oils for the sauna, excellent large screen smart TV with aux input cable (for listening to your own music) . Food is wonderful, all locally sourced and freshly made (definately no... More

What a lovely place to spend the night, the staff were very polite throughout the whole time we were there, something that actually made the visit worth while. Considering we were coming from far away. The room was big and spacious with a sound system and big TV to go with it. The steam room was easy to use and... More

We really hope to go back - we had one of the 'spa' rooms and loved having the big bath and the sauna, although we'd've made more use of the outdoor area and fire pit if our stay had been during the summer. We loved the little sideboard outside the room which had some edible goodies on, and the bed... More

We had an evening meal and overnight stay, the bar area is very welcoming, the rooms were lovely, looking forward to the opening of more spa rooms next year, the evening meal was excellent with lots of sharing starters to choose from. Breakfast was also very good I can recommend the kedgeree and the cooked breakfasts went down very well.
