Our favourite rooms
To feel like true country-house gentry, book into Colwall. The aubergine and gold colour palette, heavy Tudor-style bed with sumptuous sink-into mattress, opulent swathes of fabric draped by the windows and the garden views add up to a lord-of-the-manor setting. Colwall is also one of the hotel’s most spacious rooms, boasting a pretty sitting area overlooking the lemon-and-lime scenery.
Dip into the indoor heated swimming pool or soak in the indoor-outdoor hydro pool, both of which are family friendly.
Bring loose clothes for cream-tea gorging and trainers for post-cream-tea strolling; some understated chic for the stylish restaurant and bar; your iPod for tuning out giggles and squeaks.
If you want to bring a pet, book up an animal-friendly Coach House room.
Very child-friendly set-up in terms of facilities and activities for all ages. Children are welcome in both the swimming pool and hydro pool.
Well-behaved pooches – kept on a lead in public areas – are welcome, but you’ll need to bring your own bed, food and squeaky toys. There's a £10 a night room-cleaning fee, too.
