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...

Enjoyed the room, service and food. Be careful some rooms have terrible mattresses and old beds which will really affect your sleep. The Wifi does not work in furthest rooms. Otherwise charming and peaceful. I would go there again

We have eaten and stayed here a few times and recently dined with relatives who live in the village. We had a great meal including home made fishcakes, Duck cooked beautifully, hake which was a good portion and also presented well. These were all served with plentiful fresh vegetables. The food is very good and the service is friendly yet...

What a delightful little place this is in the middle of the English countryside. Parking good, as soon as you arrive the charm oozes, opening the old creeky front door there was no one to be seen but eventually someone scurried out with the brightest and happiest smile and welcome! The garden is delightful and we sat outside for a...

We have stayed here a number of times and always enjoy the ambience and friendliness. Rooms are quite old fashioned but very comfortable. Retsuarant is excellent...always good. Bar is fun with local beer and cider on tap. Not pricey...excellent value for money!
