First of all for the people who are reading this who just want a quick opinion - GO THERE YOU WONT REGRET IT.
Secondly the more detailed review, (Charles/Ann) this is Chris writing FYI.
My amazing girlfriend booking this place for my 30th birthday, I knew I was going to Bath but had no idea just the kind of place that I was being taken to, we drove up to this large house through a set of brick pillars, my girlfriend mentioned en-route that the owners would have the kettle on when we got there (she wasn't wrong). We were welcomed by a polite and charming Charles who showed us our room which was incredible then once we had finished with the room tour he asked if we had time for "Tea" before dinner (the restaurant where we ate dinner Charles recommended and booked prior to our stay) Tea consisted of a pot of any Tea or Coffee of our choice along with sandwiches and handmade cakes (Ann even put a candle in one of them for me, which was a nice touch), Charles also spoke to us about places to go and restaurants to eat at (he does have impeccable taste) so we went about our day then came down for breakfast the next morning, walked into the room and we we met by a plethora of goodies (freshly made smoothies, figs, yogurt, grapes, cereal, fresh juice, tea) and thats before we get to the hot food. My partner and I have a penchant for smoked salmon so naturally we both chose it from the menu however I have an allergy to egg yolk so Charles was more than accommodating when I asked for egg white only, he came back from the Kitchen a few minutes later to say that Ann had suggested that she make me an egg white omelette instead which I was very happy about as thats my breakfast of choice, it was incredible, best ever, all this whilst talking to Charles and having a mutual bonding over good watches amongst other things (Charles, I will send you a picture when I get it back)
Usually I have no need or desire to write reviews and you may think I am rambling but I don't care, I feel a compulsion to tell everyone just how great this place is and how great Charles and Ann are, you made my 30th birthday memorable, this review seems trivial in comparison to the memories.
I cannot convey my thanks highly enough, Thank you.
Chris and Hannah
