CHARACTER & STYLE
The vibe is gently-lived in - think overstuffed sofas, family memoties and portraits in oils. This is a look that many hotels spend a lot of money trying to recreate. Granted there are some ubiquitous stag heads, but the place doesn't feel too 'done' or stuffy.
The team here is efficient and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. Ask them to organise a foraging or fishing trip for you; afterwards you can relax with a massage or reflexology treatment.
