What a lovely country retreat. Great hosts who fall over themselves to meet your every wish, be it things you need or a drink or meal. The restaurant provides a wide and varied menu that covers most tastes and the food served is of a very good standard. If you cannot find anything you fancy on the menu (which I doubt) then they will cook something you do fancy. The rooms are very spacious and spotlessly clean, furthermore they contain everything you could wish for. A great place to stay and I highly recommend the Clow Beck House to anyone looking for a great hotel experience. I will certainly stay there again.

Travelling back from holiday in Northumberland to the South East during the September floods, my three year old and I found all roads closed or impassable, and after 5 hours on the road trying and failing to get home, randomly followed a sign to Clow Beck House, who luckily had a bed for the night.

We were welcomed so warmly, I nearly cried with gratitude. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, Heather and Dave, with offers to make whatever food my child preferred (not needed - the menu was beautiful and full of choices he was more than happy to eat), they gave assistance with monitoring the local travel news, advice on routes and on a safe walk to burn off some of the toddler energy from the long car journey and view the floods. The room was very well appointed and the bed supremely comfortable, even for someone with notorious back problems.

Even in the severe storms and flooding, the house was safe, warm and dry, the gardens were breathtakingly lovely and quirky, and we both enjoyed exploring them and discovering their delights. Despite the unexpected and random nature of our stay, it was a fabulous extension to our holiday, and I will definitely return, and recommend to family and friends.

What a gem of a place. Nothing is too much trouble. After a hard day's sight seeing we arrived tired and thirsty. Heather set a table for us in the garden and soon after arrived bearing 2 large bottles of stella. A nap and shower later in our oh so beautiful room, and we were selecting from the fabulous menu. Coffee and petit fours in the lounge after dinner was the crowning glory. Unfortunately I was still so full the next morning I couldn't do the superb breakfast menu justice. Ah well we'll just have to go back.

PS I left my phone charger plugged in and Heather posted it onto me no charge. A great find this place and it will become our special place to go.

If you want a city centre hotel surrounded by pubs, clubs and shops then this is not the place to stay!
If you want an individually designed fabulous room in beautifully converted farm outbuildings with out of this world food and a great range of bottled beer then this is the one for you. The owners could not be more attentive or friendly. The guest rooms are a little walk from the main house but here you are welcome to use the nicely furnished lounge, with ample supply of books, games etc, and near the dining room where huge sumptuous meals are served while you enjoy the amazing view. Ample parking, great countryside and no one else for miles around.

Very willing to hep with business meetings etc as well.

We visit Croft circuit every year and have made a ritual of staying at Clow Beck House. It's a rare treat for us as it always falls around the wifeys birthday, normally we're in boggo travel-taverns for the rest of the year. If you just want to be given a room key and grunted at (as it would appear one of the reviewers does) then this place is most definitely not for you!

The owners are genuinely friendly and welcoming, with nothing being too much trouble. The food has always been exceptionally well prepared to order and the rooms are of the highest possible standard.

It's not cheap, but you know that when booking so it shouldn't come as a surprise and Clow Beck House is a perfect example of getting what you pay for. Value for money does not mean cheap.

Beautiful setting, quiet and remote but convenient for the circuit. Highly recommended but can everyone please leave a room for us each August Bank Holiday :-)
