Good Hotel Guide Review

Thatched cottages and sheep-dotted fields swaddle the single-track roads to this 17th-century mellow-stone Nadder valley house in an ‘unspoilt’ village. For Guide inspectors in 2018, the ‘dreamy bedrooms’, ‘tranquil garden’ and ‘sublime dining’ are the real draws. In the ‘airy sitting room’, plush sofas are interspersed with low tables bearing garden-fresh blooms, board games and books. A small snug ‘is a fine place to have a drink and read the paper’; the ‘beautifully maintained garden’ is a tempting alternative. Upstairs, tastefully decorated bedrooms vary in size. ‘Our marvellous second-floor room had a huge, cosy bed; spoiling organic toiletries in the sparkling bathroom. A comfy seating area provided plenty of space for our baby boys to roll around. The babbling river was the only sound at night.’ Chef Andy Britton’s daily-changing menu of locally sourced, seasonal produce (much from the kitchen garden) ‘is tremendous’. ‘So much effort went into creating an epicurean experience for the whole party. A spinach-lentil crumble, with a burnt-hay-and-oat topping, was heavenly; the wood pigeon breast was an unexpected treat.’ Breakfast is ‘glorious’.

Guest comments

'This  is  a  very  easy  place  to  feel  at  home.  Everything  is  taken  care  of  without  fuss.   The  bed  was  a  dream;  the room  genuinely  capacious;   the  bathroom  splendid  (the  toiletries  worth  taking  home!).  And  the food is sublime. ' - EH - June, 2018
'We had a wonderful stay - faultless service and excellent food. ' - John C Walton - January, 2015
'We had an excellent dinner and a very comfortable time. Our bedroom was large, on two levels, with a sofa and comfortable chairs and good lighting. The bathroom was also spacious with plenty of fluffy towels and useful goodies. Dinner was very good. Service was slick and efficient without feeling rushed. The fresh local eggs at breakfast were delicious and well cooked. ' - Sara Price - November, 2013
