Good Hotel Guide Review

Mod cons in a milking parlour, designer chic in a cider mill – along with a working farm, well-regarded restaurant and cookery school, Judy Gardner’s ‘comfortably rural’ set-up has much to please. Guests enjoy the ‘tranquil’ setting, among pastures grazed by Angus and Highland cattle and Lleyn sheep, but this is ‘a foodie place at heart’, where ‘every table in the dining room was full’ when Guide inspectors visited. Chefs Sue and Mark Stinchcombe’s farm-to-fork philosophy informs the ‘delicious’ canapés and ‘refined’ menus, perhaps Birlingham asparagus, truffle mayonnaise, hazelnuts, cured pork; stone bass, wild garlic gnocchi. Well fed, head over (via a path ‘prettily lit with candles and lanterns’) to modern rustic bedrooms in converted outbuildings and the 17th-century Lower End House. ‘Ours, accessed through a stylish lounge, was beautifully beamed, with a low door frame and a slightly sloping floor. A comfortable room, it had a super-king-size bed, crisp bedlinen, good towelling robes and slippers.’ ‘Before leaving the next morning, we were given directions for a lovely circular walk along the river, and offered a complimentary drink on our return.’
