Good Hotel Guide Review
In the rolling South Hams countryside, Richard Hendey’s Georgian rectory turned small hotel is ‘a delightful place to stay, peaceful and friendly’. Interiors are smart and contemporary. The ‘beautifully furnished’ bedrooms are supplied with such thoughtful extras as home-made cake on arrival, cafetière coffee, fresh fruit, biscuits, garden flowers, a hot-water bottle for chilly nights. Bathrooms have underfloor heating, luxury toiletries. ‘The perfect host’, Mr Hendey also cooks (‘he seems to be everywhere’), with John Raines and Josh Tolley, using locally farmed, raised or caught, and home-grown produce in ‘perfectly balanced’ dishes. For instance, roast rack, braised shoulder and crackling of lamb on a shallot and Merlot jus, toasted barley risotto, roast vegetables. The kitchen will happily cater for vegetarians or anyone with special dietary requirements, given notice. ‘The food is uncommonly good, despite the difficulties of making gluten-free dishes for me.’ Breakfast brings freshly squeezed orange juice, leaf tea, a fruit platter with yogurt, Agen prunes, smoked haddock, boiled eggs with asparagus and soldiers, bubble and squeak, or the ‘full Devon’.
