Near the village of Little Wymondley, set amidst rolling Hertfordshire countryside, yet only a few minutes from the A1, lies the 15th century Redcoats Farmhouse with its relaxed and easy going country atmosphere.
It has been in the Butterfield family for generations and in 1971 Peter and his sister Jackie Gainsford converted the building into an hotel. Bedrooms are either in the main house, some with crooked floors and all with exposed beams, or in the converted stables. Recently two rooms in the main house have been converted into a luxurious suite called Bobbie’s Room, named after a favourite aunt whose room it used to be.
The dining room and conservatory serve outstanding cuisine that has won an AA Rosette eight years running and breakfast has won a special AA award. The a la carte menu changes every month or two, making best seasonal use of local products. The daily menu may include such dishes as fresh sardines and char grilled lamb rump on rosemary mash, breakfast is equally memorable with devilled kidneys and kedgeree often on the menu. Two self-catering cottages are available to rent, short or long-term.
Garden suitable for wedding & other receptions.
