Good Hotel Guide Review
To call it a hotel is to miss the point.’ In a peaceful valley, Richard Johnston’s quirky B&B is ‘a blend of rural escape and aristocratic eccentricity’. The dog- and family-friendly 17th-century manor house has been ‘artistically extended’. The casual approach may not be for everyone. There is ‘a slightly haphazard grandeur’ to bedrooms, ‘but the mattresses and linens are top notch’. Each room is different: one has a wild brook running past, another a tall four-poster bed. Telephoning ahead to discuss options is a good idea. The lounge, bar and the greenhouse pool are mingling points. The host cooks an organic, three-course dinner, perhaps twice a week.
