The property was adorable and had excellent food and cocktails. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The room was quaint but comfortable and had lovely products available to use. The only thing I would change is that they have christmas/fairy lights hanging outside in the garden area that flashed all night long and would flash into our room and reflected flashing lights onto the ceiling all night, but that is an easy fix. Overall it was great experience and I would highly recommend The Pheasant.
