CHARACTER & STYLE
While the lounge has high ceilings, cornices and a chandelier, and the Oak Bar snuggles under ancient, undulating beams, the overall vibe is fresh, bright and modern. There's a country house theme, with equestrian pictures, wing armchairs and furnishings made with accents of leather and tweed.
Staff are welcoming, friendly and professional. Facilities include a wonderful garden, a big car park with EV charging points and a private dining room (for up to 16 guests). The biggest draw is the impressive spa - a soothing chill-out space with a whirlpool tub, experience showers, steam room, sauna and terrace. Treatment rooms offer Aromatic Temple Spa massages, scrubs and facials.
