A long sweeping drive leads to what was once a Victorian hunting lodge and a private family home. This traditional country house hotel offers a range of very well-equipped bedrooms and suites, while the smart and traditional public areas have interesting period features, log fires and comfortable sofas. The Conservatory Restaurant with its high vaulted ceiling and small minstrels' gallery serves a award-winning seasonal menu. The Garden Pavilion in the grounds is the perfect wedding venue, and the hotel also offers a range of meeting rooms for business and conferences. Ample, secure parking is available.
