Everything about my stay was excellent and relaxing and enhanced my Christmas holiday. The bedding was so comfortable. I was very happy to get the a la carte breakfast on one of the mornings. It's become a major wedding function choice and I appreciate that staff make every effort to put you in a room away from Any noise.

Excellent service from start to finish from all members of staff. The room was spacious, clean and warm. The location was lovely, surrounded at the fron with the lake and gardens, also the canal with the barges which runs alongside.

A wonderful romantic weekend away starting with afternoon tea, made especially to meet our dietary requirements. Followed by a pleasant walk down the canal. Dinner in The Orangery was delicious and the sommelier very attentive to our food choices and preferences to match wines. A real treat. The room was spacious and comfortable.

This 15th century moated Mansion House seemed too good to be true when viewed on the Internet but it was everything my wife and I hoped to expect and we had not the least reason for any complaint. It is nicely tucked away between a sedate canal (as pretty as any river) and a picturesque lake, but not remote by...
