Stayed 1 night in December. Had the gorgeous "Red Room" with beautiful décor, peaceful outlook onto lovely garden, & huge luxury bathroom. Absolute Bliss !
Delightful, welcoming hosts. Lovely relaxing lounge with books & magazines to read, music to listen to, board games to play, & a roaring log fire. What more could anyone want? You just don't miss the tv. In fact it is a relief not to have one. Everywhere spotlessly clean, luxury linens & huge fluffy towels, Crabtree & Evelyn bath accessories, variety of teas, coffees & hot chocolate, plus biscuits, in bedroom, and fresh drinking water. Bedside clock radio.
So very, very comfortable!
As for Breakfast, it is "fantastico". Marion a wonderful cook - Cordon Bleu standard - & such a variety of cereals, porridge, cooked meals, - everything from full English, with a touch of Scottish - delicious Tatties Scones - (try them) to Smoked Salmon & Scrambled Eggs, to Eggs Benedict, etc. All so beautifully cooked & beautifully presented on the plates.Special diets catered for (advance notice needed, of course) if necessary. Home grown soft fruits, home made jams, etc. We had poached eggs with bacon & lovely maple syrup apple slices - delicious - tiny tasty grilled tomatoes on the vine, variety of real teas, (leaves) served in silver tea pots, toast (variety of breads on offer) & so on. Unbeatable breakfast, unbeatable elegance, unbeatable accommodation, wonderful, peaceful atmosphere & definitely, unbeatable friendly & fun hosts. Thanks, Marion & William.
