I recently spent a night at Brook House, staying in the Lilac Room.
I had to resort to using my SatNav to find it, as it was dark which made it difficult to see the signs on the road, especially as traffic was busy on the A629, having little patience with a motorist driving slowly enough to find the turnoff. However, it was a fairly straightforward drive, ending along a country lane (which I wouldn't fancy attempting in snow or ice).
Chris opened the gates, helped me with my case, showed me around and then made tea and biscuits, staying to chat for a little while. As the only guest that night, I had the lounge to myself. Christa popped in to say "Hello" but apart from that it was completely quiet - wouldn't have known there was anyone else there.
There was a large bathroom next to my room which I had exclusive use of, as the other rooms are en-suite.
Chris was happy to make breakfast early for me, as I needed to be out by 8 a.m.
The views of the moors were beautiful; I was disappointed that I only saw them briefly because I arrived after dark and had to leave early. Perhaps I will manage another visit sometime when the days are longer ...
