My husband and I have been looking forward to a quiet getaway weekend where we could just relax and enjoy peace. Peppers Convent allowed us to do just that. We stayed in Room 1 - a large suite with sofa, king bed and french doors which opened onto a magnificent verandah overlooking the garden. I loved the history of the place - the high ceilings, timber floors, the parlour with the fire burning (albeit gas logs), and the understated elegance of the place.
It was great to be able to walk down the driveway to a beautiful cafe for lunch and a hot chocolate.
Only a couple of suggestions - the beds could be upgraded - my husband kept rolling into the centre and said it was one of the most uncomfortable beds he'd slept in (I found the bed firm but loved the pillows). I felt the rooms could do with a deep clean - the bathroom had some mould on the windows and there was dust build up on the architraves. I pointed out one concern and it was cleaned immediately.
All in all the Convent fulfilled our hopes for a quiet weekend where we could recharge. HIghlight was just relaxing out on the wide verandah reading and sitting by the fire enjoying drinks and pre-dinner canapes.More
