The accommodation was excellent as was the food, which included a brilliant packed lunch which you assembled from a limitless table yourselves. The house was warm and bright and the staff very friendly indeed. We will definitely now join the HF group who own this and... More

Harrington House is one of 19 houses managed by HF tours in Britain. It is a lovely old house, the rooms basic but comfortable, the staff very accommodating and the meals absolutely fabulous. In addition to our group of 17 Canadians, there were walkers from Britain and other parts of the world which made for lively discussions and conversations during... More

Staff friendly and welcoming. Food very good although vegetarian options could be better. Room very nice with a lovely shower en-suite. I was on a guided walking holiday and the walks in the area are varied and enjoyable and not too arduous.

We stayed in June for an Arts & Crafts tour of the area. Our room was large, comfortable & on the first floor with a view over the House gardens; it was quiet. The food was good and plenty of it. The packed lunches were a novel idea as we had not had an HF holiday before. Jane, our leader... More

Harrington House is run by HFHolidays providing walking and other holidays in the House. The rooms are of variable comfort and standard. Our room in the house was excellent - everything we needed with a great view over the gardens. The guided walks were well organized. Breakfasts and packed lunches offer great choices. The dinners were a little disappointing. Fish... More

I stayed here on an HF short break walking holiday which was very well run and enjoyable. The hotel itself had something the character of a youth hostel for senior citizens.
