Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A place for relaxing weekends and special occasions’, a country house hotel in a ‘beautifully’ proportioned Queen Anne mansion. A grand staircase leads off the impressive entrance hall; at the top a stunning stained-glass half-dome. The lounge area has a homely feel, with a warming fire, soft throws and cushions on deep armchairs and sofas. Spacious bedrooms (some need updating) are spread across the main house and an annexe nearby; most enjoy expansive views of the gardens and the Teme valley. Light meals and snacks are available in the bar, made ‘clubby’ with old books and interesting objects, or on the terrace. For fine dining, Brookes restaurant serves ‘inventive’ three-course menus. In extensive grounds: tennis, croquet, a luxury spa.
