I had to book at short notice for a family funeral. My room (in an annex) was very comfortable with pleasant view over fields. The service was always friendly but also professional. The wine list might benefit from a few half bottles (something of a rarity these days) for single travellers - possibly hoteliers feel that couples might, God forbid, order a half rather than a full bottle. There were however reasonable wines by a variety of glass sizes. I notice a comment about drink prices in an earlier review but my local pizzeria (in the North of England) is more expensive in this respect for similar wines. The gardens were immaculate and interesting, the hedges were stunning. A lot of atmosphere, a proper dining room (actually three connecting rooms with a garden views) with proper linen and good glasses, a good seating area in reception and a very pleasant lounge with plenty of country-house sofas and armchairs made this a very pleasant place to stay. The order for my morning paper miscarried but a replacement was quickly found (just glad that no-one saw me reading the Telegraph rather then The Times). Furnishings in my room were pleasingly non-standardised ie real pieces of furniture rather than fitted junk; there was a good TV and a proper desk lamp and a proper desk. There was plenty of storage space and good bathroom and a comfortable bed. The car park was very large. The marquee erectors were just arriving as I left (a Thursday morning) and I don't have a clue if this was to be a summer-long feature or simply for one event but it might be worth noting that wedding parties do seem to be part of the business model.
