We provide unique and memorable customer experiences in a historic country house setting with award-winning food and unrivalled service and value.

In doing so we ensure we honour our environmental responsibilities, create good returns to reinvest into the local community, and provide an environment in which our staff excel and feel there is no better place to work - creating a ‘can-do’ culture.
