Staff very helpful and friendly, suggesting local walks and even supplied the map! We will definitely be back. All in all a most enjoyable stay.Tony G – June 2015
Friendly service made a weekend away with our 2 young children a joy. Great hotel and grounds, location and fantastic breakfast. Would highly recommend a stay for couples, friends or families. A great base to explore the area or like us visit Peppa Pig World.Sarah K – June 2015
Friendly welcome, charming gardens on the very edge of the Forest. Kids loved playing giant chess, then playing on the rope swing in the Forest. Us adults enjoyed a couple of drinks outside before we all tried the restaurant, Wonderful food beautifully presented. Service first class, even the kids ate every bit.Simon C – June 2015
Family meal for 4. Fabulous locally sourced meat and veg main courses and tempting interesting starters. At a very reasonable price. We will be back again.Whiri - June 2015
All three courses were great portion sizes and excellent quality, and value for money. It was part of a deal, as we stayed at the hotel, but if in the area, we would dine there and recommend it as well.susieb4210 - June 2015
