We use to stay at Athelstane House about 25-30 years ago on many occasions. We loved the new approach. Our room was clean and comfortable. Laurel was always available via a mobile phone. Things are a little different at the moment due to COVID. Do not be put off by this difference. Our breakfast was delicious and Rebecca was very professional. The lounge room is welcoming. One evening we lit the fire, bought fish and chips, returned to sit by fire sipping wine and enjoying our meal. Heavenly. Would certainly revisit. Thank you staff.

We had a amazing weekend stay at Athelstone House. The rooms are immaculately clean and beautifully decorated with a modern style and. creative feel. The breakfast was delicious with a great varied menu in a lovely cafe room which opens out to an outside deck overlooking the large garden. The staff are attentive to all your needs and nothing is too much trouble. This was our second stay at Athelstone House and we will definitely be back again. A wonderful place to stay in a majestic historical house but with all the modern conveniences we love.
