The house is a gorgeous three story stone house with a delightful history impeccably decorated with antiques, fine china and silver tea service. It is literally surrounded by an oasis of lovely shade trees, elegant and comfortable patio furniture and even a resident owl. Gary and Jan couldn't be more obliging. They started us out each morning with a 5 star breakfast and welcomed us back at the end of the day with tea and home baked cookies. We spent 4 nights there and we easily could have stayed longer. We never felt so rested. There are great choices of rooms and cottages all more beautiful than the next. We never heard planes or traffic or loud voices...a great place to recharge. Do yourself a favor and be guests at Roughley Manor! I promise you will not regret it. We are already planning our next stay.
