Don't expect to find the bespoke interior design here. It's a wonderful old house dating back to the Civil War when it housed sympathisers of Oliver Cromwell. Family-owned, it's packed with inherited items of furniture, paintings and knick-knacks. Character comes from comfortable sofas you can sink into, an antique rocking horse and a row of wellies.


The staff here are all lovely and have worked for the family for many years. The owners are often on hand to greet guests, make sure everything is running smoothly and give guided walks of the grounds. Wellies are provided and dogs are particularly well looked after.

The rooms have period dimensions; high ceilings and large windows frame the English idyll outside. The chintz might not be to everyone's taste, but it suits the rooms and adds to that feeling of staying with a relative rather than in an anonymous hotel. The bathrooms are large and have heated towel rails and robes.

Room types: Luxury B&B Rooms

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom, TV, tea and coffee-making facilities, stunning views over the extensive grounds, free Wi-Fi


The family decided to stop operating a restaurant in the spring of 2019, but the breakfasts here are still superb with a buffet table laid out in a small corridor full of local fruits, yoghurts, honey and preserves, as well as fresh pastries and cereals. Hot breakfasts are cooked to order.

Breakfast: Buffet-style table and cooked-to-order hot breakfasts.
