Good Hotel Guide Review
A ‘country house feel’ imbues the Robinson family’s stately Jacobean manor, which stands in walled gardens, with farmland sprawling beyond. All is smart and contemporary: there are deep armchairs, wide sofas and paintings of rustic scenes in a panelled sitting room; an open fire in the plaid-carpeted library bar. Throughout, housekeeping is ‘exemplary’. Elegant bedrooms in the main house vary in size and character; more contemporary spa rooms have lovely views over the grounds. At mealtimes, modern British dishes use soft fruits and vegetables from the garden. Typical dishes: smoked salmon mousse, textures of beetroot, micro herbs; pan-roasted chicken breast, mushroom duxelle, pommes Anna, charred leeks. Extra de-stressing takes place in the well-equipped spa. 8 miles W of Darlington.
