Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an excellent hotel where everything has been thought of and carried out with loving care. I have to confess I was rather overcome with the sheer loveliness of it all. A friendly welcome on arrival with tea and lemon drizzle cake; fresh flowers in our room and in the lounges, fresh milk in a tiny fridge on the landing, and a quiet elegance throughout the hotel. There was even hotel writing paper in a letter rack on the desk on the lounge; a detail that to me is the mark of a really excellent traditional hotel.
Originally a vicarage, it’s a beautiful building with large and spacious public rooms; there’s a dining room as well as a breakfast room and both were in use, even though we and one other guest were the only people staying on the night we were there. The food was excellent; I have never seen so many vegetables in one place at one time to accompany our main courses – I think there were 12 different ones, if you include the potatoes cooked three different ways. A good bottle of Alsace white was remarkably good value.
Breakfast is cooked to order and was also very good. The father and son hosts are courteous and keen to make sure guests are happy and comfortable. Wifi is fast and efficient.
TIP: check the location when you travel; we used satnav, but ours took us to a farm and private house!

Where do I start? Greeted on arrival by both Robert and Tim with tea and cake, lovely after a 4hour drive. We had dinner first night, the while hotel is full of antiques, nics and nacs and paintings. Something different to look at. Dinner was lovely, and so many veg on offer. We booked for a second meal. It was such a lovely relaxed trip, Robert and Tim perfect hosts, making themselves available but not intrusive. Breakfast cooked to order and plentiful. The style may not be to everyones taste, but this is an old house and it suits it. The bathroom was a little tired, but fully functional and everything was Spotless. If it had been a modern Update, may not have suited the house. Our room was large and roomy. We both slept well, albeit the bed was a little creaky, a bit like my bones after all the walking we did along the south west coast path. All in all we would stay again.

Car Park nice and close to the entrance and plenty of room.
Perfect greeting and a nice cup of tea / cake in the lounge upon arrival.

Room lovely - dual aspect, nice big bed. Bath and shower which is good.

Evening meal in the restaurant is superb - great choice and fantastically cooked.
Same for breakfast - again excellent choice.

This Country House is absolutely lovely and steeped in character and charm.

Full covid adherences throughout.

Lovely, lovely stay once again.

Had a super short break in a lovely Country House Hotel. Robert and son, Tim, were great hosts. The hotel is very charming and just what we needed for a quiet break in a lovely setting and area of the country. Just a very traditional Country House hotel as has been covered in previous comments..keep up the good work. Will definitely be back when our daughter moves to the area.

Large, delightful character bedroom with very comfortable bed. Cosy sofa & armchair with good lighting. Well stocked hospitality tray and included mineral water bottles. Plenty of hot water and good size bath although their is also a shower if preferred. Superb cooked breakfast which was prepared at our chosen time- how very kind. A lovely stay. Thank you

Loved the old fashioned homey property. Arrived late with my cousin Gina and left late for the bus back to London. Both times the owners saved us. It was so cozy. Loved the tea and breakfast and small bar. We viewed a church from our window. Found out when I got home my ancestors attended that church. My great great great great grandfather was the church warden of that church and he had Let the Court Barn in 1700's. Wonderful place to stay. Will never forget it. 2003

We only booked Court Barn the day before we visited as it was close to where we had an appointment and wanted to make a weekend away.
We loved this, we stay in many top rate places and prefer places that are "real" rather than corporate glossy. This was just like being in a family home (reminded me of mu Aunts!) with personal photos, pictures and bits and bobs. Huge bedrooms all very comfortable and lovely to sit in the drawing room with magazines, games and a coffee feeling as though younare relaxing at home. Like a good country home the furniture and belongings have been built up over the years and are traditional rather than modern or boutique, but this is what gives a comforting atmosphere. The evening meal was really excellent good choice which you select at breakfast, presentation is a bit homely but flavours great and never seen such a big selection of vegetables (9i think!) the wine list is renowned and we were able to try something we didnt know even though we are wine lovers, and particulalrympleased to have our red wine decanted and presented properly.
