There's also an extensive selection of old and new world wines to sample. Choose between the contemporary conservatory or Poachers Bar for lunch and/or afternoon tea.

Good to know

Please note that the hotel will make a provisional reservation at The Brasserie for guests opting for dinner, unless the hotel is otherwise contacted by guests prior to arrival. Please also note that guests must pre-book spa treatments prior to arrival.

Please also note that some rooms may only be accessed via stairway, while others may have stairs within them; they may therefore not be suitable for those with mobility issues.

During the school summer holidays, there may be restrictions within the spa; afternoon 'Splash' times may apply, where only families are allowed during peak times, usually between 4-6pm. The spa will happily advise guests on the day if this policy is not enforced.

Can't commit to booking right now?

Hold a date for only £25 while you decide.

  • Pay £25 to hold a date until the end of the sale.
  • If you choose to buy it, the money will go towards your purchase, if not, the cash will be credited to your Secret Escapes account.

Important: Please note, this is not a deposit, complete or guaranteed booking; holding the date simply prevents other members from swooping in and booking your preferred date while you're still having a think about it.
