This was a birthday treat for my husband to go for a special dinner and spa break. The hotel was full of character and we were welcomed and looked after well by all the staff. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented - the evening dining experience was excellent with a good balance between being both relaxed but at the same time extremely professional.
Only disappointment was the description of it as being 'set in nine acres of peaceful gardens and parkland'. We had planed to go for a walk around the parkland but there really is only a small garden which is pretty but you need to ask for local walks as most of the land is inaccessible/ overgrown. The views are fantastic though and we walked around the pretty village in the end.
The spa was very well set up with great facilities - really luxurious and we felt very relaxed by the end of the day. The massage was very good and there was a lovely rain shower feature as well as good steam and sauna room. It was a sunny day so the inside/outside pool and outdoor hot tub were excellent options. Definitely recommend this whole experience - not cheap but worth every penny!
