Our favourite rooms
Light and spacious Room 2 has exposed beams, a limestone bathroom and views of the garden. High‑ceilinged Room 4 is also airy and big, overlooking the front garden. Room 6 is the largest in the main house, with a separate snug sofa area, and its natural‑stone, garden‑view bathroom has a big whirlpool bath. In the cottage, split‑level Room 7 has a spiral staircase leading up to the bedroom and bathroom.
Walking boots and big appetite.
Guests with a small and well-behaved dog can be accommodated in the duplex cottage room. There’s usually a two‑night minimum stay on Saturdays, but check for late availability.
Welcome, though there is no special menu in the restaurant. There is a foldaway bed, and Room 6 has a sofa bed, with an extra charge only if your child is having dinner.
