We arrived in pouring rain but were made very welcome by Caroline. The hotel is a former Edwardian house set in parkland (with sheep and lambs). The public rooms are very comfortable and most of the original features (fireplaces and oak panelling) remain in place. The bedroom was on the small side but had more the adequate storage. We had an en-suite shower room and that looked as if it had been fitted fairly recently (although I didn't like the control for the shower valve).
Dinner both nights was excellent. The hotel is owned and managed by a French chef and the kitchen turns out very good food. Breakfast was also very good.
The staff are attentive and genuinely helpful.
A recent addition to the hotel is a swimming pool and spa: most welcome over travelling by car. My only criticism is that away from the roaring log fire, the dining room can feel a little chilly in February.
Ludlow Town is about a mile or so away and there are National Trust properties in the vicinity.
Much more a hotel for adult guests than those with young families.
I would definitely recommend a stay here.
