My parents stayed at Drinkstone Park not too long after it opened and were so impressed with it, they treated my husband and I to a 3 day short break for our joint 30th birthday present, and I have to say we were in no way disappointed.
We stayed in the Red Room which is very comfortable with a large double bed and a sofa. It comes with every amenity you could ask for, for example tea and coffee making facilities with fresh milk and biscuits each day, a flatscreen tv, a large closet with hairdryer and fluffy bathrobes and lovely little touches like wine glasses and a corkscrew and your own fully stocked bookcase. The adjacent guest lounge has very large comfy sofas and a beautiful log fire which, you will find, one of the owners Michael or Christine will light for you whenever you arrive back to the B&B, after which you are served with tea or coffee and, when we visited, a delicious homemade scone with jam and clotted cream. Michael is very happy to suggest good places to eat locally and will even arrange transport should you need it (thank you for your help on Valentine's Day Michael x).
The breakfasts are delicious and we were told we could have it at any time we wanted. You help yourself to cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt and juices with toast and spreads including yummy homemade lemon curd and marmalade, and then you have a choice of dishes which are cooked to order by Christine, such as a full English, pancakes with maple syrup and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon.
We would like to thank Michael and Christine for a lovely stay in your lovely home in which we never felt unwelcome. In fact we felt thoroughly spoilt.
We hope to be back, in the summer next time when more local attractions will be open, we can take advantage of the patio that comes with the Red Room and your fish pond will hopefully be finished!. We really look forward to it.
