I'm a bit loathe to write this review. It's hard enough to get a table for Sunday lunch as it is! We've been going here for 18 years and it's still as wonderful as ever! Originally it was the Dower house to Chettle house. Now it's a country hotel with a fabulous restaurant. On arrival you're ushered into either the...

We have visited the Castleman twice in the last 6 weeks; firstly with some friends for an evening meal and secondly on Mothers Day as a group of 9 for lunch. On both occasions, we have been impressed by the comfort of the pre-meal lounges, the outstanding friendly service, and the wonderful food. A real treat at a very fair...

Stayed for a one night "get away from it all" break. A lovely old country house in a beautiful country setting. The house has real character. Focus is deservedly on the restaurant but the room we had was large, clean and comfortable with lovely views. All the staff were really friendly and helpful and provided a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The...

My daughter and I stayed here in October on a trip from the U.S. Chettle is a tiny, out of the way village with a peaceful old world charm. A very unique location, to be sure; but in the best of ways. It's places like this that make me so glad we planned our own trip. No packages, no tour...

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year, often eaten here, but never stayed. So glad we did, huge room, big bath room, I really liked the cast iron bath with ball and claw feet. Very nice to sip a glass of champagne in! Feels like you are staying in a private house with friends, they make you so welcome....

Negotiating the narrow lanes to get here is worth it.The feeling is one of being a house guest and we were made to feel very welcome.Our room was tired, quaint and enormous but with a lovely view over countryside.The shower was an experience in itself but those with a sense of proportion will take that in their stride for the...

Went as part of a party of 12 for a 10th wedding anniversary. Amazing place, both inside and out, more like a country house hotel than an inn. My room was huge and beautifully furnished, the food was outstanding and the staff were warm and friendly. Would definitely go again.

This is a ’restaurant with rooms' quite unlike any other we've experienced. In a big, old house, large, un-modernised bedrooms and cosy sitting rooms with crackling fires surround a bright formal dining room where quite excellent food is served. This from ingredients from local suppliers and gardens, when possible, does not suffer from trying to be modern and adventurous, as...

We booked in for two nights on either side of an event we were attending at the Castleman... but what we had not realised was what a superb country stay it was going to be: olde worlde charm with welcoming hosts and a private house feel to all the public rooms, making you feel at home instantly. The cuisine was...

We loved this hotel. The first star is Chettle village which has delightfully not moved with the times. I took a four k walk before breakfast & it was quintessential rural England as so many of us love. The building is not luxurious but certain fits the ambivalent category of 'interesting' with several rooms for lounging. A big lawn for...
