Stayed for a long weekend with family for my 40th birthday celebrations and was very impressed with the lovely house, gardens and setting. We asked if we could check in a bit early on Friday and were happily accommodated. Tom (the gounds keeper I think) met us at the house and showed us around, how to work the heating and hot tub then advised to call him if there is anything else we need.
We settled in, poured a glass of wine and enjoyed the beautiful views out the many aspects. As it was my birthday I got first dibs on bedroom so naturally selected the master room with en-suite shower room. The shower took a bit of time to figure out as it had lots of buttons and settings (some of which were worn off) but got there in the end and enjoyed a brilliant power shower with jets and plenty hot water. Unfortunately the same could not be said about the roll top bath. I had plans to enjoy a lovely hot bubble bath after a 5 hour walk on Sunday but there was no hot water to the bath or sink...
