Dear Tom Many thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts after the recent stay at Rufflets - I am sure that your children will be pleased to see that (as often is the case) the gift of a Rufflets Voucher has gone down so very well. Delighted that you enjoyed the whole experience with us, especially dinner in Seasons Restaurant. Phil (our Gardener) is always glad to get the chance to talk about what he is growing - and I hope that he didnt try to give you a spade to help out with the manual labour! With my best wishes, and perhaps we will have the chance to welcome you back in the near future, With my best regards, Stephen Owen General Manager

Dear Liam Really pleased to read how well the stay with us was - and we know that gift vouchers are always a lovely thing to be given. Indeed there is something reassuring about making sure that the 'old school' style of hotel keeping can be enjoyed so much. We do feel that great hospitality is about people, not all the mod-cons that can be found in some hotels these days. Delighted that you enjoyed the experience of Seasons Restaurant so much too - exceeding expectations is what it is all about. With my best wishes, Stephen Owen General Manager

Hi David I am afraid that dogs aren’t allowed into any area of the main house. We do have 4 rooms in external buildings that we allow dogs into. Regards Stephen

Dear Judith, Thank you for the message - and sorry if the descriptors are not clear, we will loom at this. All of our rooms have showers, although some do not have bath as well. If you give us a call on 01334 472594, or email our reservations team, we can discuss this in more detail. We do have decent availability for the 28th, but less for the 29th (not sure if you are looking for both nights). Regards Stephen

"The bath in our standard room was on the small side, garden view rooms are the best."
"Would expect the rooms to have a high standard as did the main hotel areas"
"Best view is over the gardens at the back, which is also quieter. Rooms to the front face over the drive and ar ecloser to the main road."
"Be sure you ask the size of bed."
"Ask for a room that overlooks the garden!"
US$136 - US$449 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
