Good Hotel Guide Review
The austere Tudor Gothic-esque 19th-century exterior belies the delights within. Rebuilt by Sir Frederick Peel, son of Sir Robert Peel, the manor house has a cool feel, with spacious rooms filled with laid-back Scandi-style furnishings and a smattering of floral prints. It is run with energy by the Hill family and their bright young team. Bedrooms (suites, really) have a huge bed and a separate sitting area with great garden views, plus freshly ground coffee, Bluetooth audio system, home-baked cookies and 100 Acres toiletries in the bathroom. In the Michelin-starred restaurant, innovative takes on British staples showcase local produce: smoked eel, kholrabi, samphire; turbot, asparagus, wild garlic. Breakfast has as-you-like-it full English.
