Was a little dubious as to what to expect on arrival as I had won a two night break at Ashley house courtesy of Paramount pictures who described it as a luxury getaway. I have to say I was not disappointed, Ashley House is furnished to a very high standard and is a lovely and in keeping with the style and period of the building. The hosts were very helpful in arranging taxis and providing local information and in organising an in room spa treatment. The breakfasts were delicious, there was plenty of choice and the produce was sourced locally, the eggs coming from the chickens who live in one of Ashley house little courtyards. The location is good, it is situated in a little market town with an array of antique shops, independent retailers and a pannier market which was lovely to walk around.
