This hotel enjoys a glorious setting next to the village in 26 acres of gardens and parkland reaching to the River Bybrook, where trout fishing is available. Including the golf course, there are 365 acres to enjoy. A manor house stood here in Norman times, and the current building dates back in part to the 14th century.
Day rooms include an appropriately manorial front hall with some particularly fine carved wood panelling, a clubby bar (stocking over 60 whisky varieties) and an airy drawinf room furnished in English country house style. In winter several real fires add to the cosy atmosphere.
The real stars here though are the bedrooms in the main house (a little less than half the total): spacious, characterful (old timbers, some exposed stone features and various four-posters and half testers), and stylish decorated rugs over oak floors and quality soft furnishings. Comforts include wing armchairs, books, magazines, a welcoming decanter of Sherry and a teddy bear to keep the bed warm. Furniture is antique and always includes a piece that provides good work space because practicalities have not been overlooked.
Bathrooms are no less luxurious, all having large walk-in showers (with huge 'deluge' shower heads and 'rain bars' in rooms in the extension) in addition to the tub, twin washbasins and even televisions allowing you to view while having a soak. The remaining 'Mews' bedrooms are in cottages on either side of what was once part of the village street. All the bedrooms have modern TV's with extra satellite channels, Wi-Fi internet access (mention this at the time of booking, if needed), tea caddies (holding various varieties, plus coffee and hot chocolate), plus a pillow menu with 7 varieties on offer. There are 8 larger rooms, particularly suitable for families.
There are excellent business meeting rooms, while you can eat well at the 'Woodbury Restaurant' just up the hill at the Golf Clubhouse or more formally at flagship 'The Bybrook Restaurant' see below.
