This was our second visit to Rickerty Bridge. The Manor House is situated next to the restaurant and wine tasting venue. There are only three rooms, which are spacious. The top two, we were in one of them, are upstairs under the thatch roof. Downstairs is the breakfast room and a lovely large lounge. There is a very calm and relaxing atmosphere about the place. The Wi-Fi is free too.
Breakfast is good and can be taken outside as well as inside. There is a lovely pool (small point, but it looks a tad scruffy as the lining is old and looks grubby) however there are loungers and tables and it is secluded.
Although there are coaches bringing day trippers for tastings and lunch, we did not find this at all a problem. There are plenty of other vineyards to visit very close to Rickerty Bridge, and many restaurants. We did eat here one night - you have to give notice that you wish to dine - and it was very good. The wine is excellent too.
The housekeeper/breakfast cook, Leonie, was really good. Friendly, helpful and very cheerful - she made our stay even better.
