Our hostess was most accommodating when we had to change our booking the week before our visit. She also kindly printed out our ticket for Highclere that we had forgotten to bring with us. She was helpful with recommendations for eating out in the evening. Read less

Dislikes:
We felt the room was quite pricey.

"Wonderful stay in beautiful and peaceful surroundings, stunning room and lovely landscaped garden."
Friendly welcome by owners mother as owner was away. Room was in a beautiful coach house in grounds of farmhouse with a cosy lounge area downstairs, a kitchen and conservatory and a beautiful large bedroom upstairs, tastefully decorated with TV and tea making facilities. The super king size bed was comfortable and the ensuite was large with a roll top victorian style bath and corner shower. Everywhere was immaculate.The room looked out over the beautiful landscaped garden and swimming pool. Read less

"Should be called Bed not Bed and Breakfast"
Requested breakfast at 6:15am in the morning and was told to make it ourselves - and only cereal and coffee and juice from the fridge. The bed had dog paw prints on it and we were told the dog had been sleeping on it. Also the room did not have any towels or toiletries in it.
The hosts did fix room the room up, grudgingly and only later, around 10pm told us they had decided they would indeed make us breakfast as advertised on their website - as if they were doing us a favour. Not good service. Read less

Likes:
Our English breakfast was a welcome treat each morning before our days out. The local pub, Lord Lyon, was a great spot for supper. Close proximity to points of interest was a huge draw.
Dislikes:
There were times we didn't feel too welcome as the owners live in and I felt my mother's disability (blind) was a nuisance to them. Upsetting. A seperate guest entrance would have been helpful.

"Lovely location but frosty atmosphere"
I wish I'd taken more heed of the reviews before staying here; while the older reviews are glowing there seem to be a lot of others in the past year which have said that the welcome from the owners was really lacking. I wanted to give the owners the benefit of the doubt but, alas, I have to say that I agree; we really felt that we were an inconvenience to our hosts, or at least the lady of the house who was downright rude at some points. I really couldn't recommend staying here. Read less
Likes:
The gardens are lovely, as were the facilities. A shame we were too late in the year to use the pool. The room was a bit over priced for what it was, especially as sink & bath plugs didn't work.
Dislikes:
As stated, the unwelcome atmospere gave a real sour taste to what was meant to be a nice romantic getaway. But maybe the couple has had some tragedy in the last year which has affected them?

"Great garden and bathroom but terrible start to the day at Breakfast"
Enjoyed the garden and the dogs. Great bathroom but needed Kleenex. Bedroom was ok except for spider web on wall near the bed. Missed having snacks (cookies, crackers) in room or in kitchen. Every other place we stay provided snacks, soft drinks and sometimes wine for us. Rookwood provided a bottle of mineral water. Did enjoy having a pot of tea on the patio at arrival. One guest waited an hour for her breakfast . Read less
Likes:
The garden is wonderful!
Dislikes:
Breakfast was meager and proved to be too much for the owner to handle; extremely disorganized at breakfast
