Hotel Review

Seascapes and ancestors share the walls in the warm public rooms of Sir Thomas and Lady Ingilby's Ripley inn, a thriving establishment with an attentive staff. Bedrooms are split between the inn, around the cobbled courtyard (where they are lighter and more modern) and peaceful Birchwood House, across the road. All have fresh flowers, immaculate bathrooms and careful decoration. For meals, choose between the restaurant and bistro, where many of the ingredients are sourced from the estate.
