We found Hungry Bentley using Google accommodation search and were intrigued by the images and description on their website - it sounded wonderful. We loved the peaceful location in the heart of the English countryside - no traffic noise, just the sounds of birds! The building itself is stunning inside and out - and we really did feel as though we were stepping into the pages of "Homes and Gardens" magazine! The decor was lovely, the furniture and beds comfortable and luxurious - and a lovely welcome from Jane to make us feel at home right away. As should be expected in a place of this calibre, breakfasts were outstanding - local produce cooked beautifully by Jane, with variations to the usual "full English" available on request. Still on the subject of meals - Jane was very helpful in recommending local eateries, and kindly booked one for us. So, was there any downside? Well, yes - as mentioned in a previous review, there is very little in the way of noise insulation between rooms and the main corridor and, unfortunately, you CAN hear everything that is going on around you.........! Also, we found the shower in our room(we didn't have a bath) particularly small - thankfully, we are not large in stature, but even then we kept engaging with the rather protruding tap fitting. As nature lovers, we would have enjoyed watching the antics of the birds and squirrels at the bird feeding station, but this was out of sight for guest diners - perhaps it could be relocated adjacent to the guest dining area?
