We stayed at Foxwood for 5 nights and found it totally delightful. The house and grounds are full of character and it’s a bit like stepping back in time into a more peaceful world. Interesting little nooks and crannies at every corner. The staff were...More

You would never say that there is naturally beautiful and tranquil environment. situated in-between a residential area, until you have been there too experience it. The Staff is friendly , service excellent and the preservation of the historical heritage makes it even more amazing.
