This is somewhere where it is acceptable to leave your muddy boots at the door and warm by the fire, while the kitchen prepares a first-class meal. As with many stylish rural pubs, the interiors are painted in atmospheric dark colours. The bedrooms have a contemporary cottage feel.


The inn has been expertly run by the same family for over a decade and the small team of staff are incredibly friendly. Everything you need should be in rooms already but from breakfast onwards, there is someone to speak to if not. There is plenty of parking on site.
