There aren't many hotels where you get introduced to the owners and they cook all the food themselves and make you feel like one of the family.
We stayed in the 'Beeches' room for two nights. The room was spacious and beautifully furnished. The shower was extremely powerful and the complimentary Molton Brown toiletries added the finishing touch.
The newly added orangery overlooking the garden is a great place to sit and read in peace. The garden is beautiful with lots of places to sit outside and enjoy some quality time.
The food was amazing! Canapés with drinks before dinner followed by a four course menu that changes daily. Each night there is a choice of meat, fish or vegetarian. Everything is done on the premises even the breakfast marmalade - amazing considering the chef and part owner used to be a surveyor!
The hotel is down a quiet lane but is only a five minute walk to the coastal path. The Hunters Inn is a pleasant, not too strenuous, three mile walk away and should be done after the three course breakfast!
We had an excellent stay and hope to return soon.
