I spotted the advert for this hotel in a magazine when we were thinking about spending a couple of days, with an overnight stay, on the North Yorks coast. We booked and discovered we had stumbled on a perfect country house hotel. The coast in January can be bleak, but there are no crowds, and having Wrea Head Hall to retreat to at the end of the day was wonderful, even though we had chosen a sunny day!
The hotel has recently changed hands and the owners are undertaking a programme of refurbishment, attempting to recreate the atmosphere of the house when it was built in 1881 as a private residence. The public rooms have been completed and the result is stunning. Wood panelling, comfortable leather chairs and sofas, and restrained but creative decoration enhanced the welcome offered by the staff.
Our room had been refurbished and was in reflected the country house ambiance, bath in the room, separate en suite shower room, oak gothic tester bed and views of the extensive grounds.
They have also found a chef who clearly has flair and imagination because dinner and breakfast were first class.
This hotel deserves to be successful and we shall certainly return before too long.
