Anniversary At Sopwell

We spent a long weekend at Sopwell House to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We arrived and was greeted by a welcoming and friendly reception team. We were shown to our room that was very clean and had everything we would expect and needed. The spa was excellent and kept us occupied for hours. We enjoyed lunch in the conservatory and evening meal in the Brasserie, both offering good range of food and drinks served by friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was really enjoyable with all types of breakfast options available from full English breakfast to arrange of fresh fruit and cold meats. We would recommend Sopwell House and would be sure to return in the future. "Tripadviser"
