Good Hotel Guide Review
The Slater siblings have country comfort down to a fine art at their stylish 18th-century coaching inn – a local hotspot for real ales, signature cocktails and zesty pub classics. Typical fare: chicken, leek and pancetta pie, champ mash. Above the restaurant, heritage-style bedrooms, each named after a type of duck – some found on local lakes – combine Art Deco flourishes with large beds, high-quality linens, and bathrooms supplied with robes and complimentary goodies from the owners’ beauty company, Baylis & Harding. Some rooms are ideal for a family, having a loft bed tucked in above the bathroom, and a dress-up box for younger guests. Guidebooks and wellies can be borrowed for a countryside ramble.
