THE LOOK AND FEEL
This is just what you want from a country retreat: large open fires, exposed brickwork, wooden beams and a large light conservatory lounge overlooking a pretty courtyard garden. The Arts and Crafts style Grade II-listed building is covered in wisteria flowers in spring and summer and croquet sets are laid out on the lawn.
A young local team service the hotel with energy and enthusiasm, although beware that if you ring reception, your call may be put through to the sister hotel Careys Manor (not ideal when booking a cab).
