Little Court recaptures the halcyon days of Edwardian leisure, the warm red-brick 1909 house of symmetrical proportions, the secluded walled garden with old-fashioned shrubs and climbers, all delightfully modernised to a very high standard of comfort and luxury.
Taking my elderly mother away for a few days holiday is usually difficult, but Amanda and her team at Little Court guest house could not have been more helpful and made our 2 night stay one of the most comfortable and relaxed short breaks I have ever experienced. My mother celebrated her 92nd birthday while we were there and we came down to our breakfast table complete with a birthday banner and then Amanda and her staff then presented my mother with a card and chocolates, a lovely gesture much appreciated.
This is a wonderful place whether you are a honeymoon couple, a family, or pensioners like us. The rooms are mini-suites, equipped with everything from neat coffee/tea boxes to iron and ironing board. The bathrooms have been given special attention from tiling to towels, the beds are comfortable, the chairs cushioned. Downstairs in the guest lounge the soft sofas, sherry decanter, and study corner with computer and WiFi invite you to make yourself at home. The breakfasts are delectable with local "properly yellow" eggs and bacon (or choose smoked salmon and scrambled eggs), as well as the usual continental provisions. The breakfast room opens out on to the beautiful lavender-scented Gertrude Jekyll style walled garden, ideal for a morning/evening stroll. And for the more active, there is a swimming pool and tennis court. You feel like a house-party guest at one of those country weekends in 1910.
Our thanks to Amanda and her ladies who go the extra mile to give their guests the perfect place to stay. (And there is a good pub, the Sun Inn, within walking distance a quarter of a mile down the road serving excellent evening meals and friendly service.)
