“Superb private country house with stunning views. Cosy and stylish decor with oh so comfy beds. Enjoy the very local produce for breakfast whilst surrounded by lovely countryside. Ideally situated for walkers in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A charming spot for a country escape.”

Hotel Overview

“The Wooden Cabbage (the local name for the locally stunted oak trees) is an enlarged keeper¹s cottage with a sweeping, showstopping view of Hardy Country. There are housemartins under the eaves, the airy house is stylishly decorated with family antiques, Martyn Lee¹s vegetable garden is a marvel and his wife Susie makes use of the produce for her delicious breakfasts. The Lees are warm and calm but never intrusive; having previously run two successful inns they bring a perfect combination of professionalism and homeliness to their operation.”
