This was a treat for us both after a hard few months. We wanted to be able to switch off somewhere luxurious, in rural surroundings. This hotel is a lovely old manor house in a beautiful setting amongst landscaped gardens, with walks round the grounds and lake, and through woodlands. The service was efficient and friendly, room service was immaculate. The room was spacious and could not be faulted, and we felt like royalty for a precious 24 hours. We dined in the restaurant, and loved the special touches like providing a mini portion of soup to my partner while I ate my first course. A salad I had asked to be specially prepared was exactly how I wanted it. The wine list was a little frightening till I spotted a very good Malbec at £25. Overall this was an expensive treat, which is why I have marked down the value, but I would be back like a shot if I could ever justify the cost again. Quite honestly, I didn't mind paying this money as I felt it will help make this little slice of heaven available and unspoilt for future generations.
