Good Hotel Guide Review

Just the ticket for ‘young children and their exhausted parents’, this Georgian manor house stands in ‘beautiful, romantic’ countryside. It has a ‘friendly, relaxed’ atmosphere that’s ‘really geared for kids’. ‘I give it a million out of a million,’ said a five-year-old guest. (A grandfather was glad that, after slots for children’s tea and family dinner, evenings in the restaurant are exclusively for grown-ups.) The facilities for young guests are ‘excellent’: there are trampolines, a skittle alley, table tennis, cinema sessions, indoor pools, a mini-beast hunt through the grounds; at the Sunday-morning breakfast club, children are collected, fed and looked after by Ofsted-registered nannies ‘until their grateful parents surface’. ‘Comfortable, interestingly furnished’ bedrooms in the main house and two annexes come in different sizes and with different sleeping arrangements; some rooms connect to accommodate a family group. For more privacy, book the two-bedroom, two-bathroom Coach House, with its own lounge. There are ‘great’ children’s options at lunch and dinner; when night falls, adults have ‘plenty of choice’ on the Mediterranean-inspired British menu. (JB, and others)

Guest comments

'A treat for families with young children, though we would not call it luxury. The facilities for children were excellent. Communicating bedrooms, high teas, creche, play activities both indoors and out, Breakfast Club, etc. Reception and bedrooms were spacious and interestingly furnished, and had a pleasant, relaxing feeling. The food, though not exceptional, was acceptable but we thought it expensive. The staff were courteous and friendly. ' - Jane Bradley - February, 2016
