Competition

CORSE LAWN HOUSE, Eldersfield, Gloucestershire, is this month’s prizegiver. A Queen Anne-style mansion, in a rural hamlet with views to the Malvern hills, it has been owned by the Hine family since 1978. Run today by Baba Hine, with a team of long-serving staff, it inspires loyalty among Guide readers. ‘It is just lovely,’ writes one who has known it for 18 years and has seen little change. Public rooms done in shades of apricot and pastel orange have ‘wonderfully quirky furniture’ and paintings by Baba’s great-grandmother. ‘Don’t expect “boutique”’, but if you want a ‘comfortable, traditional, not overly formal hotel’, with pool and tennis court, this is it. The welcome is warm, bedrooms are spacious, the food is liked.

All you need to do to win this handsome prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at Corse Lawn House is to SEND A REVIEW of your favourite hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.

Steve Jack from York is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at THE BEECH HOUSE AND OLIVE BRANCH, Clipsham, Rutland. A great combination of gastropub and luxury B&B, this village inn was rescued from closure by Ben Jones and Sean Hope (ex-Hambleton Hall, see entry) in 1999. Contemporary-rustic in style with stripped-wood floors and mismatched chairs, it serves modern British cooking which focuses on local produce. Dishes might include lamb with burnt shallot and crispy potatoes, or roast pollack with curried pearl barley. Bedrooms, across the road in the buttermilk-coloured Georgian Beech House, don’t stint on luxuries: hand-made mattresses, antiques, proper coffee, fresh milk. ‘Excellent’ breakfasts include ‘superb kedgeree’.
