As part of the Luxury Family Hotels chain you get the usual services for children that make it so good for those with little ones (ours are 3 and 1): in particular the creche (Bears' Den) and a baby listening service so you can leave the kids in bed while you have dinner in the restaurant.
It's a lovely house and our older son loved the kitchen garden where there is a real (non-functioning) tractor you can climb on, wooden huts that are kitted out as play shops, an old tractor tyre converted into a sandpit, and a brood of chickens whose eggs you can buy.
The swimming pool, housed in a separate building (with the spa) adjacent to the kitchen garden, is good for kids with lots of water toys. There's a swimsuit centrifuge dryer which is quite handy for when you take your wet costumes back to your room.
Kids' teatime in the early the evening was very stress-free and you are never made to feel in any way embarrassed when your little ones spread a carpet of half-eaten food across the table and floor.
Food in the restaurant is good (although the chill-out background muzak became a little grating after a while).
There is free Wi-Fi in the hotel. However mobile reception (on both O2 and Vodafone) was very weak. A real fire was lit in a fireplace in the lounge from time to time (it was still a little chilly in late March when we stayed) which was lovely.
It's worth walking down the steep hill to Bradford-on-Avon which is a pretty little town with places to stop for lunch/afternoon tea.
