A country house built in 1914 in Lutyensesque romantic vernacular style, in ‘breathtakingly lovely’ pleasure grounds and parkland, is today part of the Eden Hotel Collection (see also Brockencote Hall in Chaddesley Corbett) with Relais & Châteaux kudos. Bedrooms suit different purposes and pockets. Knight’s Suite doubles, adjacent to the main house, are simple and straightforward – ideal for the business traveller. More romantic are the ‘spacious, atmospheric period bedrooms’ in the main house, with leaded, mullioned windows and, perhaps best of all, the more contemporary ‘new rooms above the spa in the Orchard House’. All have a coffee machine and luxury toiletries. There are comfy lounges, a terrace on which to take tea in the sunshine. You can eat simply from the terrace and supper menu: fishcakes, pasta, charcuterie (sandwiches only from 2.30 to 5 pm). In the dining room, an ‘adventurous but not too ambitious’ set price Taste of the Season menu might bring Cotswold lamb with home-grown vegetables. ‘The gardens are a delight, the breakfast a splendid feast, all you could wish for.’ (Anna Brewer, Ian Walsh, CB)

We have stayed in the spacious, atmospheric period bedrooms but perhaps the best are the new rooms above the spa in the Orchard House. This must not be confused with rooms over the Brasserie, what they call the Night's Suite. We stayed in one of these at our last visit last year. It was tiny and has all the allure of a Novotel A bank had taken over the restaurant (they did not tell us) so we had to eat in the brasserie. It has a smart factory canteen ambience with a simple, if well-cooked menu and a view over a tiny garden. The main gardens are a delight, the breakfast is a splendid feast. We might go back, but be careful what room we are given.
