Perfection in a place where that is a high bar. Close to the hurly burly when you want that and it is an oasis of calm, luxuriant beauty, stuffed with history, charm and artistic flair. Your hosts are welcoming, warm, intelligent and super talented with a back story which is fascinating, who doesn't want to be around folk who were set and costume designers for Lord of the Rings etc? The Building is beautiful and historic, the gardens are magnificent, lush and wonderful and they even have doves! The breakfasts are also plentiful and brilliant with home made prize winning jam and marmalade along with everything else a big hotel would offer. We will definitely be back.
