If you dreamt of 'lording' it up you might consider this venue. The house is the family seat of the Percival family and has a lot of history. We had a few problems with our booking but Roderick the landlord was more than accommodating in assisting us. Set in 400 acres and a good pike lake no TV presents itself a quiet spot to rest awhile from your busy life beyond its walls. Food is simple but adequate with a reasonable selection of wines. Bedrooms are what you'd expect in a house of the size...huge!
