THE LOOK AND FEEL

This home-from-home hotel offers a colourful and contemporary retreat. The main house blends period features, like large fireplaces, bay windows and decadent chandeliers, with a modern edge, elevated with bright pops of colour and interior furnishings, combined with a personal interpretation of the surrounding landscape - think moors, fields, forests and big skies.

The restaurant boasts floor-to-ceiling sliding windows that extend onto terraces with plenty of outdoor seating and a pergola.
