"Will be back! And soon!"
We came to Coopershill as a quiet getaway for our first anniversary. We are a young couple in our early 30’s and found this place beyond fascinating, friendly and very comfortable. It’s exactly what we wanted- time away from TV and technology, time with each other, well spent laughing, walking and enjoying the beauty that surrounded us. The fantastic Mary greatest us on the steps on arrival and was instantly welcoming, warm and full of conversation which immediately made us feel at home. She gave us a tour of the home and explained some of the family history as we walked. We had the Venetian room which was very roomy and had a garden view, the four poster beds... yes beds (plural) were comfortable and of good size. The bathrooms are clean and bright and stocked with luxurious Penhaligon toiletries, a scent that transports you further into the Georgian experience that surrounds you. The food, lovingly prepared by the chef (Christina) is faultless, we savoured every morsel of breakfast, afternoon tea and our four course dinner. The food the food! Fresh orange juice in the morning, in fact, fresh everything all day long! The veggies are all from the garden on site and the majority of what you are served is as local as possible, and this makes a massive difference in terms of flavour. I would like to give a mention to the home owner Simon who went above and beyond with service to his guests. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with Simon who taught us so much about the history of his home and the local area. His knowledge, passion, self-sufficiency and professionalism is clear to see. We were blown away by the level of personal engagement we received on our stay here. We couldn’t recommend this place enough! And we will most definitely be back- Mary and Simon gave us such a wonderful list of excursions, we were unable to see everything we wanted to, but what a fantastic reason to return to Coopershill!
