We stayed for one night in a Deluxe double room overlooking the golf course and truly enjoyed our time there. The room was really spacious, with the bathroom having both a walk-in shower and a bathtub. Also of note were the wardrobe and coffee-making facilities in the room, evoking the style of the Orient Express.
Even though our room was located in a separate wing to the Manor House, the long and winding corridor to it was full of modern art which gave the overall impression of walking through a museum. During our stay however, this aspect was slightly disturbed by ongoing renovation work for a new reception area. Nevertheless, it wasn't too much of a bother.
Having arrived in the evening, we had time to use the spa area before dinner. The pool was long enough for laps. However, the only downside of going so late is missing out on the great views of the estate offered by the huge glass wall.
While dinner was as good as expected, we were even more fascinated by the bar area which is located in what seemed to be a ballroom.
For breakfast we had a table with a nice view overlooking the gardens and the food options were plentiful.
Furthermore, after breakfast we had a lovely walk around the property, which is truly amazing, especially the old castle ruins and the river walk.
