We enjoyed a throughly enjoyable 2 days (1 night) sat at Headlam Hall with our 4 & 6 year old boys. Upon arriving at the hotel early afternoon we received a very warm welcome and were shown to our room by a very cheery and helpful porter. We were free to use the Pool and spa facilities between 4pm & 5.30pm and 8am to 9am during our mid-week stay which is a fantastic facility the kids loved. The grounds and gardens are beautifully maintained which the children enjoyed exploring before going for a swim. Dinner was fantastic and as well as the children's menu any of the main courses from he La Carte menu were available as half portion for the kid with our eldest enjoying a lovely salmon dish. The food and wine was excellent and very reasonably priced for the quality on offer. The bottle of Cote de Vontoux was first rate at around £23. We had a family room in the coach house and the only criticism we could make was the bathroom was a little pokey. Other than that the room itself was a good size, tastefully decorated and had a double bed, a single and a fold up bed. On our final day we had a pre-breakfast swim with the kids at 8am and then a really tasty cooked and continental breakfast at 9.30am. We then picked up one of the hotel's leaflets that highlighted a selection of walks out from the hotel and gave a short 1/2 hr one a try to wear of some of the excesses of dinner the night before. All in all a fantastic stay that worked much better than we could have ever hoped for with the kids with all of the staff being super friendly and welcoming towards us & the children. We'll be back again!
