Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Comfort and homeliness’ draw guests to this 17th-century mellow-stone house in a tranquil, ‘totally unspoilt’ village in the valley of the River Nadder. The staff are ‘warmly welcoming’, the service is ‘excellent without being overdone’, Guide readers say. Freshly cut garden blooms brighten the public spaces; in cool weather, an open fire burns in the lounge – just right for mid-afternoon tea and toast (dominoes are optional). Pleasing country-style bedrooms overlook garden, courtyard or countryside. An attic room is charming with its sloping ceiling, but guests looking for more space should book a large second-floor room, done up with a sofa and two armchairs. Gourmands, come hungry: ‘The food is a great attraction.’ Besides sampling the daily-changing menus of locally sourced, seasonal produce (perhaps including Creedy Carver duck breast, butternut squash purée, kale, spiced duck jus), sign up for a foraging walk and workshop led by chef and co-owner Nick Wentworth. Before heading out on a day of country walks, ask for a picnic hamper or ‘hiker’s knapsack’ of salads, charcuterie, cheeses, fruit, cakes and home-baked bread.
