Good Hotel Guide Review
In a pretty conservation village, ‘helpful’, ‘hospitable’ hosts Julie and Paul Evans run their relaxed small hotel with ‘enthusiasm and professionalism’. The Grade II listed mansion stands in extensive gardens with a croquet lawn and space for raspberries, blueberries and redcurrants to grow wild. Inside, the country house feeling continues in traditionally styled rooms filled with antiques and flower-print fabrics. ‘Our superior room was excellent, with a glorious view over the village green and beyond. The bathroom had a splendid spa bath.’ In the restaurant overlooking the walled garden, Jack Bradley, the new chef, uses seasonal ingredients and home-grown herbs and soft fruit in his ‘tempting’ canapés and ‘high-quality’ monthly menus. ‘The slow-braised blade of beef was expecially fine.’ There are quiet lanes and scenic drives all around; the Evanses have plenty of walking advice to share, and will lend the unprepared a map. Prefer to explore other terroirs? Book in at the popular wine weekends, for a taste of further-away lands. (Alan and Edwina Williams)
