“A charming hotel, overlooking the village Green. Classic English interiors with antique pieces, bold florals and roaring fireplaces. The award winning restaurant serves up locally sourced seasonal produce in a variety of settings, from formal dining to Al Fresco in the walled garden. A family spot.”

Hotel Review

Six years ago hotelier Craig Jarvis bought this 17th-century inn with a colourful history and transformed it into a hotel full of quirky character. Downstairs, with its comfortable bar, informal bistro and elegant dining room, there’s no hint of the extravagant bedrooms upstairs: some exotically flamboyant, others coolly romantic. Sink into one of the bar’s squashy sofas for a drink before a first-rate dinner.
