On the outskirts of a ‘delightful’ village of ancient inns and medieval buildings, this ‘handsome’, ‘extensively modernised’ old farmhouse stands in ‘well-maintained’ ornamental gardens, with ‘many secluded spots in which to read or enjoy some privacy’.
The ‘well-kept’ gardens reach into woodland thick with rabbits and roe deer, while the ‘remarkable’ bar within the 17th-century coaching inn stocks over 70 malt whiskies. The whole is a ‘lovely’ country hotel, whose many fans think it ‘a special place’.
‘A near-faultless stay.’ In a ‘great’ location – ‘so easily reached from the centre, yet so quiet’ – Laurence and Helen Beere’s ‘excellent’ hotel continues to please guests with its ‘personable, efficient’ staff, ‘delicious’ food and ‘generously sized’ rooms.
In a ‘scenic’ setting facing ‘tranquil’ marshland – ‘a joy for painters’ – the Stannard family’s ‘popular’ traditional hotel attracts all generations of regular guests, who praise the ‘remarkably high standards of service and amenities’.
When John Remington, vicar of Cartmel, entertained the Duke of Devonshire at this 17th-century stone manor in 1842, he built the very fine dining room in his honour (visitors still admire its panelling, bay windows and ornate moulded ceiling today).
Jim and Wendy Sarton’s 15th-century, timber-framed, wisteria-festooned manor house is popular with artists, who come for residential painting courses held from February to November; Dedham Vale, beloved by John Constable, invites exploration all year round.
In raffish Soho, this ‘stunningly original’ boutique hotel occupies three Georgian houses. ‘Friendly, efficient’ staff open the door to reveal a lavish, intriguing collection of ‘old architectural features, old furniture, old books and paintings – much to investigate and appreciate’.
An ‘easy informality’ fills this ‘fun’ hotel, in an ‘unspoilt’ Cotswold village in the green Slad valley. The newest in the Calcot Hotels group, it enters the Guide thanks to inspectors who found it ‘a happy place, with attentive staff’.
