On arrival we were mesmorised by this enchanting place. From the moment we walked through the doors we sensed we were in for a real treat. The atmosphere was that of an comfortable, elegant family home and we were made to feel most welcome. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 2 children (6&8). The fire was lit for us and the trays of little sandwiches, cakes and sweet treats began to appear. We had a gluten free and a vegetarian with us and both were well accomodated.
The children had been allowed to have their favourite filling and were very happy indeed. Inbetween treats the kids and I wondered around the hotel taking in its beauty. We felt free to do so and never rushed or made to feel awkward or nosy.
The whole afternoon was made very special by all the Christmas trees and decorations adorning the rooms. The Maitre d' was also very friendly and enthusiastic towards my children who responded by being excellently behaved and well mannered-they had dress for the occasion one of them said "I feel like Cinderella at the ball Mummy".
There was so much food that we took home some of the scones in boxes they provided. There was plenty of tea and coffee and the girls drank Sparkling water with straws.
All in all an wonderful, happy, memorable and perfect Christmas family birthday treat for us.
