Good Hotel Guide Review
Relaxed and relaxing, Jan and Adam Moore’s dog-friendly country hotel is in ‘a lovely setting looking out over the hills – very green and surrounded by trees’. Past fire-warmed sitting areas, the 18th-century sporting lodge has ‘perfectly pleasant and comfortable’ bedrooms supplied with home-made shortbread, fresh coffee and organic toiletries; a garden suite has a conservatory and private garden. Guests sensitive to noise (an A road runs close by) should ring in advance to discuss best options. Dinner has good choice for vegetarians and vegans; breakfast is ‘excellent’. Arm yourself with the hotel’s richly informative guide of walks before striding out, or simply stay in: a Finnish sauna cabin and hot tub are in the grounds.
