STAY

As we were a group we stayed in the properties farmhouse. The perfect set up for a break with friends or family as the rooms all come with en-suites. There is a communal living room which is decorated in a beautiful Scandi, country style with trinkets scattered all around.

Other accommodation includes the Hilly Huts, traditional bedrooms and of course the treehouses. I started eyeing up the Hilly Huts for a return visit before I’d even packed my bags. They are small and compact but perfect for a night of cosiness with a friend or your partner. All accommodation is relatively modest, more like a home from home rather than a plush hotel and that is exactly what I love about it.

EAT

The hotel restaurant, aptly named Hook, is a seafood restaurant headed by Chef Martin Burge. We splurged on oysters (despite countless tastings they’re just not my thing). Fresh catch of the day and perfectly chilled rose before retiring to our rooms for the night. Once there, it was difficult to prise myself out of bed and after the most peaceful slumber I awoke to the sound of the birds and the sun in my eyes. This is starting to sound a little house on the prairie, but this is why you come to the Fish: to relax, roam the countryside, curl up by the fire with a good book and completely switch off.

DO

Whilst we were there we embarked on a Segway tour around the properties sprawling grounds. There is also archery, yoga and the hotel’s private cinema on offer, screening all the classics you can think of. We were totally spoilt on our last evening and had the cinema to ourselves. We wore our pyjamas and had a girls night, complete with back to back showings of Bridesmaids and Dirty Dancing. The cinema also has the cutest popcorn stand where we helped ourselves to warm popcorn and pick n mix. It was the ultimate girl’s night in, perfect if you wanted to escape for a low key hen do, or the like.

UK breaks don’t come more charming than this.
