Driving up to the house, we were amazed by its splendour, a gorgeous 17th century structure. Welcomed at the door by Natasha already knowing who we were and showed us to the 'Officer's Suite'. A large room with tasteful decor, impeccably clean and tidy, but still retained a homely feel. A lovely assortment of coffee and tea supplies were provided as well as home made treats each day and a bowl of fresh fruit!
We were invited for afternoon tea which included home made blueberry scones and an assortment of jams with any beverage we wished We also recieved other goodies such as, sandwiches, brownies and cake, however this was because an elderly couple had booked afternoon tea as well, a great gesture from Natasha.
Crockerton House is situated in an ideal location, nearby includes pubs, National trust properties, walks, shops and also close to the beautiful city of Bath. And with Longleat 2 miles up the road it was ideal for our stay. We sampled a couple of the local pubs and recommend looking around Warminster. The 'George Inn' is a mile down the road and offers a great selection of food and locally brewed ales.
Breakfast in the morning was exquisite, a selection of teas and coffees to choose from accompanied by cereals, fresh fruit (including fruit warmed in the arga), this was followed by home made pastries and a cooked breakfast with locally sourced sausage, bacon, egg and tomato, mushroom and a choice of sauce.
We were soon introduced to the family including their beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback Sabie, a rather large but sweet dog nonetheless. The grounds at Crockerton are awe inspiring, with kitchen garden, large lawns, beautiful flower beds and a private drive way. At the bottom of the garden is a little outbuilding which can also be rented for longer periods of time.
In all, our stay was great! We had nothing negative to say.
