Since 2015We purchased the Inn in early 2015 and set about restoring the fabric and character of this historic building to ensure our guests have a warm and comfortable environment to enjoy and relax in. The building is steeped in history – Charles Dickens was a guest in days gone by and based some of his writing on the places he discovered whilst visiting. Another famous visitor was the artist William Turner, who painted some landscapes in the local area. It is rumoured from local folklore that the building is haunted by two young lovers – you can see their graves in the village churchyard.
"Lovely, Peaceful stay"
We absolutely loved this clean, spacious, unique place. Are room was huge with a superb shower and lovely views. The breakfast was delicious! It has a well stocked, cosy bar set in a beautiful, rural location. What more do you need!
My partner and I stayed at the inn this weekend and I have to say the staff were so friendly and the food, all homemade. I recommend the steak and ale pie. After dinner we sat over the open fire and had a few drinks. Our room was nice and warm and homely. Thank you to all at the Inn.
"Great getaway spot"
We came here to enjoy a night away, and we were very impressed. Beautiful settings, log fires, great selection of drinks, excellent food. This place was great. Also, we stayed in the infamous 'Room 4' which is steeped in ghostly lore! I would really recommend this place. It just had that nice homely feeling about it.
