    Very impressed with the friendly and discreet service, great venue for a wonderful wedding. We stayed in the Clock tower suite and enjoyed two spacious rooms with a dual aspect view. Faultless. Lovely location in the countryside and nicely decorated in classic style.More

    Check in was 2pm however if you want an early check in they offer this to a limited number of guests for £30 in addition to the room fee. We were able to get access to our room from 12 noon.
