We stayed here with a group of 21 bellringers for 3 nights. It is difficult to criticise anything because the staff were so excellent, especially Simon. He showed a real interest in who we were and what we were doing - felt like a real home from home. The breakfast was excellent with the most wonderful crispy bacon, and the evening meals were also excellent. The room (we were in one of the garden rooms) was very comfortable and spacious, with everything you need. The only reason for not giving a 5 star review is the slight lack of attention to cleanliness in our room. Don't get me wrong, it was pretty clean, but there was a large (and old!) cobweb on the curtain pelmet, and the shelf where the kettle was needed a good wipe. My only other niggle was a smell of drains outside our room (we were the end one) but this wasn't a problem once inside the room, just a bit unpleasant when walking to the room. There were also loads of cobwebs and bits in the outside corridor bit leading to our room. I appreciate this is a county setting, but just needed a bit of enthusiasm with a broom every morning - wouldn't take a minute.
Having said that, I would definitely stay there again, and would recommend it, although it is a little on the expensive side.
