Having been a popular roadhouse for many years, this property is now a hotel with many strings to its bow, and being located just off the motorway makes it particularly accessible. The well-appointed bedroom suites are very comfortable. The conference facilities include ten self-contained meeting rooms and a tiered auditorium seating 200 delegates. With a well earned reputation for food, one is sure to find a dish to suit all tastes from the varied menu in the Enclosure Bar. More formal evening dining takes place in Silks Restaurant. There is also a well equipped leisure centre with spa treatments and a gift shop specialising in equestrian themed giftware.
