This family-friendly country house and designer hotel is located 10 minutes from the M4 and the centre of Bath where public transport links may be found. Guests will enjoy the quiet surroundings, contributing to the relaxing atmosphere that allows them to truly rest. Situated just 4 miles north of Bath and 10 miles east of Bristol, it is perfectly situated for ease of travel to the major business links of the south west, for example with the M4. The nearest airport is Bristol International Airport, only some 19 miles away, while other airports include Cardiff International Airport (about 65 miles), Exeter International Airport (about 95 miles), London Heathrow Airport (about 96 miles) and Southampton Airport (about 72 miles).
The bedrooms were built using warm, honey-coloured Cotswold limestone and are mostly arranged around a charming, old courtyard, set behind the grandiose manor house. Every bedroom features its own individual finesse and wealth of character, having been redesigned in a stylish, contemporary fashion whilst maintaining country sensibility with supremely comfortable and traditional furnishings. It is this mix of olde worlde charm and modern comfort that truly creates a warming and relaxing setting. Some rooms have an en suite bathroom with a bath or shower. Guests are provided with a hairdryer, direct dial telephone, satellite/cable TV, radio and Internet access in their rooms. They may also make use of the minibar and tea and coffee making facilities, while central heating ensures their comfort.
There are 2 wonderful golf courses located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, which stretches for over 240 acres of historic parkland and includes trees that are over 400 years old. Both courses, the Crown and the Cromwell, have their own distinctive character and are recognised as two of the finest in the south west (fees apply). Guests may also go biking and take advantage of the entertainment programme provided for adults (fees apply to both).
The 2AA Rosette restaurant at the park is an original and fascinating space to enjoy the special fares on offer. With an imported wood stone oven to roast fabulous fish, meat and game, as well as trademark home-baked breads, signature crudités and traditional desserts, guests' dining experience will be an exceptional diversion from the typical 'fine dining' experience. The dining room is in fact an old stone lodge, once used for Masonic ceremonies, which has fascinating stone carvings that remain a feature to this day.
