Passionate owner Claire Carter has lovingly refurbished this house into a stunning boutique-style hotel that draws inspiration from its beautiful surroundings. Sumptuous fabrics and exquisite decor lend an elegant country-chic feel to the hotel, yet the atmosphere remains relaxed. The head chef and his team have carefully concocted a menu focused on honest, locally sourced ingredients, and work their magic to create dishes par excellence. As they only use fresh produce, the menu reflects seasonality based on availability. Take a light lunch in the bright conservatory, cream tea in the sitting room, full afternoon tea outside in the manicured gardens, or tuck into a fine dining feast in the restaurant. The superb menu ends with a delicious range of regularly changing desserts, which may include chocolate assiette with dark chocolate fondant, white chocolate mousse and caramel chocolate ice cream, or a selection of locally sourced cheeses and homemade Exmoor ale chutney.
The drinks get just as much attention as the food – the team works with top wine suppliers in Ottery St Mary to offer the finest choice of wine to complement your chosen dish. There’s also a great range of locally sourced gin, as well as half-price fizz every Friday from 4pm to 7pm. Lengthen your visit and retire to one of the 25 cosy en-suite bedrooms or relax at the spa and wellness centre, due for completion in Autumn 2019.
