My wife and I travelled up to this property as a pre-Honeymoon Honeymoon directly after our wedding after hearing reports from our parents about how amazing the place was. It was a break between our wedding and Christmas, after which we travelled to South Africa for our official honeymoon.
We were not disappointed!
Our visit was short, but after our hectic build up and beautiful wedding on December 18th 2005 it was just what the doctor had ordered. The room we stayed in was fabulous and the large bathroom and four poster were truly luxurious! Instant friendliness welcomed us as we were shown to our room and where to park.
Dinner each night was a true dining experience - the fact there was no menu made, for us, the evenings more special.. almost as if we were eating at a friends house rather than a contrived restaurant. Indeed, appetisers began in the lounge with a Gin and Tonic from the well appointed honesty bar. The chef was relaxed, friendly and we got on with him really well - he really made us comfortable and had a real passion about good food. I have never eaten so much and normally have a smallish appetite but here I couldn't get enough of it! Here was a kitchen you could simply pop down to at any time and snack with the chef - not a lot of holiday locations can offer that!
The attached swimming pool was excellent and a real bonus, though we had trouble with some of the gym equipment which appeared to need servicing.
If you want to shut yourself away and absorb yourself in total luxury and romantic relaxation in the UK - go here!
