Good Hotel Guide Review
In a Knights Templar village in the Eden valley, Julie and Paul Evans’s personable small hotel ‘goes from strength to strength’, reports a Guide reader in 2017. ‘The owners are warm and enthusiastic, and every member of staff is genuinely interested, friendly and helpful.’ Traditionally styled bedrooms in the Georgian mansion and converted coach house ‘may not all be large, but they’re comfortable, and guests who prefer good, old-fashioned sheets and blankets have only to ask’. ‘Our very nice room was big, with a dressing area and a roomy bathroom with a spa bath and separate shower. It was quiet, despite facing the road.’ There’s ‘plenty of room’ in the bar and lounges for ‘tempting canapés’. In the conservatory restaurant (‘overlooking the garden and its engaging ducks’), new chef Jack Bradley’s seasonal modern menus are ‘a real treat’. Among the ‘interesting, excellent’ dishes: pork loin and cheek, rye salt-baked carrot, foraged salsa verde, freekeh. ‘One gets to the end of the meal feeling thoroughly satisfied and at peace with the world.’ The countryside calls: walkers, bring your boots; anglers, your rods.
