My husband and I spent eight days at this utterly glorious hall, (5th June until 13th June) I cannot praise it highly enough. We left feeling like friends even though Roger and Wendy were not 'in your face' at all. The Hall is situated in the midst of the most spectacular scenery on the Denbigh moors and the owners also have a 60 acre holding so all the eggs, bacon, sausages and lamb come from their animals. The decor is decidedly quirky but totally appropriate for the building, whilst, of course it is spotlessly clean, this is not your sanitised hostelry at all and, because of this, you do feel as though you are staying with friends of friends. We were upgraded to the largest room and it was fab, large four poster, victorian bath, etc, etc. Views of the front garden and the moors and trees beyond. We were in Denbigh for business and for visiting friends but we know the area extremely well and if you are looking for an escape this is it in spades. Don't worry about being cold - they have fires which are wonderful as the building is cool which is a bonus when there is hot weather. Don't worry about being bored there are books galore which you can take with you if you have not finished them and puzzles and games to intrigue and challenge. As for the food - what can I say - Roger could easily be a michelin cook, the meals we had there were unbelievably good, one starter was homegrown asparagus with an absolutely delicious sauce of Roger's own invention followed by wild rainbow trout one day and then raspberries which I had brought as we cannot buy 'fresh' raspberries in Cyprus, another day we had the asparagus again, roast pork and all the trimmings plus the most amazing crackling ever which was followed by a homegrown rhubarb fool - not too sweet which contrasted wonderfully with the pork. The last meal we had was a smoked salmon starter, braised beef in wine and strawberries. As for the breakfasts they kept us going all day, plus Roger even knows how to coddle the best scrambled eggs I have had! You must, must visit this place, really you must.
