Our favourite rooms
In fall and winter, we love nothing more than to curl up on a cushy sofa in front of the fireplace in one of the Superior Suites. However, if you crave more square footage, opt for the Junior Suite with private balcony that’s tucked away in the homey Speedwell Cottage.
There are two pools: the heated, indoor spa house pool and unheated, outdoor pool open May to October.
The spa has a superb menu of specialised facials (rejuvenation acupuncture, anyone?), therapeutic soaks and replenishing body work rituals.
Don’t bother bringing your own tennis gear; racquets and balls are available at the front desk.
The hotel is completely non-smoking.
Over-12s are welcome and stay for free, but not catered to; the pools are adults-only and only over-16s are allowed in the spa.
