Good Hotel Guide Review

A sheep made out of scrap metal and spark plugs, ‘old farm vehicles and delivery floats’ are part of the fun at this Georgian farmhouse, which gains a full Guide entry this year. Our inspectors were greeted by the ‘welcoming, enthusiastic’ manager, and shown to an outbuilding room with ‘beamed ceiling, a huge bed, crisp bedlinen, leather wing armchair’; it was ‘warm on a very cold night’. A large bathroom had ‘amazing painted tiles’, a good over-bath shower, Bramley toiletries. An umbrella was provided for the walk to the main house, where rooms have such ‘endlessly inventive features’ as ‘a washbasin over an old Pashley bike’. A stone-flagged bar led off a ‘lovely, slightly clubby sitting room with tweedy fabrics, leather and wood’. At dinner, chef Sandor Szucs’s menus include such ‘exceptionally interesting dishes’ as rosemary-marinated lamb, smoked root vegetables, sage polenta, black garlic jus; from the vegan menu, salt-baked celeriac, quinoa risotto, grilled heritage carrots, glazed candy beetroot, salsa verde. After a dip in the indoor pool, we enjoyed breakfast with ‘excellent smoked salmon and scrambled eggs’. Sister pub The Boat House, opposite, overlooks the marina.

Guest comments

'The manager was keen, welcoming, enthusiastic. A great deal of care has gone into the objets which decorate this hotel. We were impressed by the many appealing, endlessly inventive features. Our spacious room had lots of rustic decoration; huge bed - Emperor, two metres wide. In the rustic bar there is a large menu of gin cocktails. The food is good: the savoury dishes had exceptionally interesting, unusual combinations and flavours. ' - Niki Howes - January, 2018
