Room to roam within this Grand Country House

We have two rooms which are available for guest use throughout your stay; The Great Hall and The Panel Dining Room. These rooms are steeped in history and, combined with our outside guest areas of the courtyard and front garden, allow you space to relax and unwind as you please, whatever the weather.  Due to the current situation, with Covid 19, access to these rooms, especially The Panel Dining Room, may be restricted or unavailable at times, we thank you for your patience.

The Panel Dining Room

The Panel Dining Room overlooks the courtyard and the front garden; it is a lovely sunny room, used for breakfast and dinner for guests. The house takes its Grade II* listing from the amazing plaster ceiling in this room, believed to date to the late 16th or early 17th Century. The work being completed by itinerate traveling Italian plasterers. Possibly also responsible for the plasterwork at Kirk Farm in Barton Parish, which is identical in pattern.

Dining: Traditional Cooked Breakfast and Home-Cooked Dinner

During to the current situation, with Covid 19, breakfast will continue to be served in The Panel Dining Room.  However, to enable guests from each of our three bedrooms to eat separately we will now serve between 7.30am and 9.30am, at a pre-arranged 45 minute slot, this will enable us to clear and clean in-between each group. If you have an earlier start we can happily accommodate you. We will continue to serve our normal breakfast selection, to include Fruit Juice, Cereals, fresh Fruit, Fruit Compotes, and a traditional cooked breakfast, with vegetarian and gluten free options also available with prior coordination.  However, due to Cold 19 requirements, we will be asking everyone to preorder their breakfast the night before and the normal buffet selection will now be served from the kitchen.  Wherever possible, all ingredients are sourced locally, from seasonal produce.

Due to the current situation, with Covid 19, Low Hall dinner is currently unavailable.  However, we will be able to advise as to which local restaurants, pubs and (award winning) fish and chip shops are available for take away or eat in.  We can assist with reservations and food orders for take away. For a small cover fee, we will be making The Panel Dining Room available, by prior arrangement, for 45 minute time slots (one per room) in the early evening each day.  This is to enable folks to eat their take away in comfort. We will provide plate-ware, cutlery, glasses and so forth.

Packed Lunches remain available with prior notification, not later than the day before, at £10.00. Please advise Low Hall of any special dietary requirements for packed lunches at time of booking.
