This is a great base for exploring England's countryside. Within forty-five minutes you can drive to the Cadbury factory in Birmingham, to Oxford or to the Cotswolds. The hotel has an old wing that is a rambling stone inn, with everything you would expect from a 16th century house -- creaking floorboards and all. There's a modern wing in the back that has the biggest hotel bathrooms I've seen in England and all the modern conveniences. The hotel has a beautiful croquet lawn that's perfect for a quiet afternoon reading or just looking at the tulips and the ancient yew trees. The staff is helpful and gave excellent dining advice. If you don't like this place, what are you coming to England for?
