LateRooms.com Best Kept Secret Awards 2013

Award winning gardens

As some of you might be aware, last month we won the Best Kept Secret Award for Best Gardens from Laterooms.com, helped judged by Countryfile Magazine. There were several categories, including Comfiest Bed, Best View and Best Gadgets. All nominees were chosen by Laterooms.com customers, so people who have actually visited the hotels and left us reviews. Countrfile Magazine helped to judge the award, with Fergus Collins quoting,

“For sheer romance and endless hidden delights, Hundred House pips its rivals to the prize. The maze gardens full of tumbling roses and shrubs and threaded with water features provide a restful sanctuary – as well as the freshest of vegetables and herbs for the hotel’s restaurant. The gardens are the perfect accompaniment to the charming rooms – each uniquely furnished with antiques.”

We were thrilled with the award, as so much hard work goes in from the team (Henry, Libby and Denise) maintaining the gardens that Sylvia had the foresight and imagination to create, 27 years ago.
