If you yearn for true English country hospitality, in an old country house then you might just fall in love with Sampsons. This is a happy place…. Our tudor thatched farm house in the countryside is older than Shakespeare. Warm, snugly and welcoming, with centuries old black oak beams and panelling; crackling log fires, and rare breed hens under the apple trees, we are probably the opposite of a Boutique Hotel. We can’t offer lacquered surfaces, designer bathrooms, and exotic staff, but we do have a relaxed, informal charm that’s a reminder of a time when the pace of life was less driven.
