I consider my upbringing to be quite privileged but i have never experienced anything as beautiful and luxurious as this! I was attending for a family wedding and we had the entire hotel booked to ourselves. From arrival the whole thing ran smoothly. The staff were efficient and ready to deal with all sorts of problems and special requests. The rooms and grounds were fantastic, and the grandeur of the experience is not to be missed. Despite being early January, the large expansive lounge areas were warm and cosy. The food was great with a reasonable choice, and it was all served to the guests almost simultaneously. The deer were in residence and the birds of prey were an interesting sight. I would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a one off luxury experience as it can be a bit expensive. However, touches such as complimentary whiskey and gin in every room is an added bonus.
Also go if your the arty type or enjoy a country walk as the scenery is fantastic.
