19 rooms, 29 suites.
Many suites have kingsize or four poster beds, roll-top or infinity baths and walk-in showers. Extra comforts include hand-made, breathable mattresses and a pillow menu.
Rooms are located both in the main manor and in mews cottages alongside. We loved the duplex Deluxe Junior suites, which all have a rolltop, infinity or jacuzzi bath, a four poster or colonial style bed and a balcony or patio. Master suites simply ooze luxury while Traditional Junior suites (some with vintage oak panelling, others more contemporary in style) have lovely views across the grounds.
Eat & Drink
Michelin-starred chef Richard Davies works wonders with locally-sourced ingredients to produce a limited, though utterly tempting, choice of dishes. Favourites include slow-cooked belly of pork, melt-in-the-mouth rare fillet of beef and wild halibut. There’s also a wide-ranging wine list.
Golfers can dine at the Woodbury clubhouse restaurant before or after teeing off, and the Full Glass bar is just the place for evening cocktails.
Served until 10:00 on weekdays, 10:30 at weekends.
Available 24 hours.
