“Where do I start? Stayed one night my husband and I. We were met by Paul the owner… What a lovely man! We felt like we had arrived at friends and family. Our room was spotless and beautiful. The whole place was grand and beautiful but without that pompass feel. It was warm welcoming and we felt at home. We made a reservation at The Chequers in Matching Green for dinner which was lovely. Paul kindly booked us a cab to take us there. Before dinner we sat in one of the many beautiful reception rooms and has a drink while chatting to other guests. Breakfast was great – good quality food and service. We will be back… it’s like a home from home. Thank you for our stay… we felt well rested.”

“I stayed here with my family and bridal party the night before my wedding which was nearby and we all thought it was amazing! If it was open before I booked my wedding, I would have definitely had it here! The house and grounds are beautiful and you’re allowed pets which meant I got to spend the morning of our wedding with our puppy and got some really nice photos with him! The owner paul was so nice and wouldn’t let us put him in the kennels for the day so kindly had him for the day and we picked him up the following morning, I thought this was so lovely and I have recommend that amazing place to all my friends and family! Can’t wait to come back with my husband :)”

“It is an amazing place …………!!!! We were guests at a family wedding and it was an amazing occasion in an amazing place. Paul & Jane were terrific hosts – making this hotel a real home away from home. Comfy beds and the biggest fluffiest bath towels I have ever seen in a hotel are here. Throughout, the building has been restored and furnished to a very high standard. The grounds make this a place to come and stay and relax and unwind. Paul is a real people person, great to sit and chat with and nothing is too much trouble. A great breakfast too. No complaints only that we had to leave! Would love to go back.”

“Fantastic place, newly renovated to a very high contemporary standard. The owners are very friendly and helpful – nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are very comfortable, the venue is stunning and in an idyllic location, quiet and peaceful yet convenient for the M11 / M25. Absolutely nothing to dislike – it was perfect!”

“We stayed here in August 2015, and what a fantastic find. Paul and Jane were wonderful hosts, the house is incredible, and a credit to all, the restoration is an inspiration that compliments luxury accommodation, huge bedrooms we could dance in. Spotlessly clean everywhere, fresh bedding and fluffy towels, tea and coffee in the bedrooms, access to the beautiful kitchen, and so many other guests all chatting with each other in the huge lounge on arrival. What makes this place more amazing are the hosts, the time and attention to guests, like old friends, we made many friends here, and to round it off a fabulous English cooked breakfast sat in the garden overlooking the lake. 
The house is exactly where it says it is, and easy to find. Nothing is too much trouble and complimentary wine on arrival and during the evening was a very welcoming gesture. We were up graded at no extra cost, what a wonderful relaxing time we had, we will be back. Thank you both for an incredible experience.”

“Only 45 minutes from home, but we chose it because we could take our dog, Hope. The first view of the place and it’s setting is stunning. On arrival we were greeted by Paul, the owner, he offered us a glass of wine or a hot drink, which we were served in the lounge. We were then taken to choose our room, we had a choice of 4, all were so tastefully decorated and individual. Hope was in her element and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the 12 acres along with the resident dogs. Nothing is too much trouble, we were told that there was a shared kitchen where we could help ourselves to wine, the weather was wonderful so we sat on deckchairs beside the lake only to find Paul coming out to us with a bottle of wine and 2 glasses, service at its best! For dinner they suggested the Queen’s Head pub which is 6 mins walk away and best of all they welcome dogs! The food and the welcome the 3 of us received was brilliant, Glenn was a very amenable host. Breakfast was traditional and glorious with everything you could want. We have already booked to return to stay and will definitely be going to the pub again. Only 1 night away but all 3 of us are so relaxed and rested. You will not find a better retreat to recharge your batteries with two perfect hosts.”
