Please note this establishment is closed, booked a room over 2 weeks ago through Laterooms and only found out the day before when I called to confirm check in time, phones had been transferred to the accountants who informed me they had let Laterooms know the position! Received a request from Laterooms today for a review!!! Lol

We stayed in this lovely country hotel as we attended a wedding in the marquee in the garden, we had a really super stay. The rooms were large, clean and area with spectacular views, the food was delicious and the staff, especially Aaron, couldn't have been more helpful. The children were well catered for, with smaller (but still generous) portions...
