Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A stunning place for a special stay’, Willem and Pippa Vlok’s ‘tranquil’ restaurant-with-rooms in rolling countryside is praised for its ‘exceptional staff’, ‘warm welcome’ and ‘fabulous food’. ‘A lot of thought has gone into the design,’ Guide inspectors say. Bedrooms are spread across a cluster of ‘well-converted’ farm buildings set around a courtyard garden. ‘Up a short flight of stairs, our rustic room had high-tech touches (automatic lighting on the stairs, etc). It had a soaring ceiling, exposed stone walls, a super-king-size bed with tasteful fabrics.’ Across the gardens, step into the ‘stunning’ lounge/bar before sitting down to chef Karl Martin’s daily-changing five- or seven-course tasting menus. ‘Dinner is quite something: delicate, with wonderful flavours; a flight of tasting wines if desired.’ In the morning, enjoy a ‘wholesome’ breakfast with home-made marmalade, ‘good portions’ of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Walks abound, for afterwards. Take in the ‘panoramic vistas peppered with sheep and lambs’; Leintwardine village is three miles away, across ‘gently invigorating terrain’. (James Vincent, Roger McKechnie)
