Had a 1 night stay to celebrate my birthday, booking a special package which included the room, breakfast and evening meal in the restaurant. The house itself is a lovely, grand, slightly quirky country estate with private gardens, lakes and woodlands. The grounds were all well kept and we enjoyed a walk around the lake (despite the rain!). The house itself is very impressive, with a bit of a quirky mix of old and new furniture. Our room was in the main house, lovely period features, but again a quirky mix of old and new furniture. All clean, smart, everything you need, just quirky. However, the most unusual part was the service. The 2 people at reception were very relaxed, friendly, almost laid-back. Whereas the restaurant staff were very formal, posh, silver service and we felt like we couldn't really relax. The food was impressive, although the chef did like to over-indulge a little on the extra dishes between courses, so from what we ordered as 3 courses turned into 7! However, all very nice, again quirky, certainly things I wouldn't have tried elsewhere. Overall, I'd describe it as a place with character - its certainly not a generic corporate box. But I do think they need to decide whether their service is relaxed or formal.
