Spent an unforgettable couple of days here. Just georgeous. 10 points Laura on the upgrade. Bed was very comfortable and room beautifully appointed. Service was great. Be sure to have an early breakfast in the stunning dining room and watch the mist rise over the lake.

From the moment we arrived we were looked after so well by the friendly, attentive staff,...

However, having been taken over by furnishings empire Laura Ashley, I am delighted to say that this iconic...
