The furnishings create a deeply relaxing mood. With inviting sofas and two log fires in the generous bar area, the hotel is the epitome of cosiness in winter. Come in autumn for terrific colour in the wonderful grounds, and in spring and summer for outdoor lazing and dining.


It's no mean feat maintaining grounds to such a level of well-clipped prettiness - the hotel's welcoming team includes two talented gardeners. Facilities range from a small lounge to a choice of packages for weddings.
