First view of house and grounds showed this was not the usual B & B. Fabulous setting of historic mansion house in its grounds. Also centrally placed in gorgeous village. Access to room only after 5pm so rather late. Hall is full of history and definitely something you either like or do not. Bit spooky for me although stairs lovely. We had lovely bright room, the Clifford, looking over grounds and lake at back of house. Room full of period detail with enormous fireplace. Bathroom large but door to it would not close so privacy an issue. A door stop was provided but had to be used from bedroom side so not always possible to use. An internal lock on door would be good idea! Bedroom could only be locked when you are in it, so no securing the room when you leave it which we found rather unusual. You generally have to go down to a lower floor to exit and enter house which was very old and musty and unpleasant to me, though I suppose some may find it all intriguing due to the age of the mansion. Breakfast is adequate and all guests sit at long table in dining room. This may not appeal to all. We prefer our breakfast to be quiet and at a private table. Overall, an interesting place to stay in a lovely spot, but would not suit those of us who like our 21st century comforts rather than historical detail.
