Good Hotel Guide Review
Overlooking National Trust parkland, this Georgian country house has ‘a real sense of grandeur’, say inspectors in 2018. ‘But all the details are welcoming and homely – the open front door, the flowers adorning mirrors and surfaces.’ Entering the Guide this year, the ‘very reasonably priced’ hotel is a first rural foray for Carla and Andrew Brooks (see Brooks Bristol and Edinburgh). Interiors are filled with antiques, but the owners’ sense of fun emerges in such ‘amenities’ as a photo booth and cast-off theatre costumes for dressing up. There are four-posters and a bunk in a vintage horsebox. Bedrooms in the main house and courtyard have Cole & Son wallpaper, perhaps a chandelier, roll-top bath and power shower. Coach house rooms are more rustic. ‘Our courtyard room had a lobby area, good-sized bedroom and huge bathroom… For our dog: a beautiful bed, a water bowl and bag of treats.’ Food is on the hearty side, for example Herefordshire ox liver, steak and triple-cooked chips. There are vegetables from the garden, eggs from the hens, wines from the vineyard. A busy nearby road doesn’t interrupt the bucolic serenity. (ANR, and others)
