A 1-night stop here to break up a long journey...what a find!
Taking time and care to drive around 7mins along single lane roads, the open garden and huge tarmaced car park awaited.
As did a friendly welcome, Rewards points/gift offerred without my asking.
Excellent deluxe room, with comfy bed, sofa, huge bathroom with large bath, walk-in shower and twin washbasins. Everything immaculate, spotless.
Large dinner menu with specials. I chose soup, coq-au-vin and a naughty pudding. Excellent friendly service, spacious dining room and fantastic value for money at £25 for the 3 couses - a guest rate.
Breakfast was excellent too.
Overall, the Lord Haldon looked like it had undergone a majour refurb recently?
Everything clean. All staff wonderfull. Idyllic location. Peace, peace, peace.
So, I'm looking forward to returning in the Spring for a short break. The sheltered courtyard and patio seating areas look o-so tempting. And the garden - really, they have a gardener looking after it for only one day a week? - was a real treat, and so colourful for the time of year.
There are 2 tiny steps up as you enter the reception area, and some flights of stairs inside.
Location is excellent, so peaceful. What a good night's sleep I had. Well worth the few miutes' drive off the A38. less
