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)
