We stayed at Low House 15-17th January. There had been so much snow just before our trip but luckily it had started to melt, although there was alot of ice, and it was very cold. When we got to Low house we parked in the small car park (although big enough for the hotels needs) and walked around to the house. We couldn't believe that we had the right place as it was bigger and more beautiful than it looked on the pictures I had seen.
We knocked on the door and Danny appeared, he was so friendly, helped us in and asked about our journey and was very genuine, Bernie too was so lovely, showing us the living rooms and dining rooms, and they both made us feel so welcome, it was like going to visit old friends. we went to our room - we had the red room, and it was huge! but the furniture was perfect for the room so it was strangely cosy.
The bathroom was a little old fashioned, but very clean and having a bath was like being in a swimming pool it was lovely and deep and so luxurious. I have to say even the towels provided were lovely and fluffy!
In the morning we saw the view, which was lovely, we didn't see any deer though. We both slept really well and didn't need to draw the curtains as it was so dark, and we didn't hear any of the other guests at all.
There is wine and chocolates in the room, which I though was actually really cheap for a hotel, and if you wanted to there were bottles of spirits in the living room which again was really reasonable.
The breakfast was really good, Bernie is a really amazing chef, I had a f ull breakfast, Sausage which I can only describe as it tasted like christmas! Bacon, Tomatoes (cooked perfectly in herbs - beautiful) and a large mushroom all cooked to perfection with the usual cereals and fruit available. We had dinner at the hotel, the salmon and avacado was to die for, it was the nicest thing I have eaten ever! and the Chicken with cider and Apple was beautiful, and Apple crumble was good enough to rival my mothers! The next breakfast was salmon and scrambled eggs which I really enjoyed.
There are games available in the living room for everyone to play and the room is really comfortable and full of books so there is something for everyone if its a rainy day!
All in all I would say Low house is the best hotel I've ever stayed in by a mile and for just over £100 I was really amazed with the value. I would absolutley go again in the summer. I felt very welcome and very relaxed. It was the perfect getaway. I will be recommending this to everyone I know.
