Everything everyone else has written about Ella's warm welcome and the quirky-but-cosy eco getaway is true. We needed another relaxing weekend escape, somewhere that would give a complete change while only being an hour or so from home. Old Country House fitted the bill perfectly. We loved the grounds and the shelves of books and interesting magazines, many of which have an environmental theme. Did we switch off? Oh yes! And the breakfast was delicious too – as you'll discover when you pay a visit!
