The Rooms

Giant beds and deep baths have been generously bestowed upon the fourteen bedrooms converted from an old brewery. The rooms all have unique character varying from deep red, tartan or Provencal. The most decadent is the penthouse with exposed beams, sitting area and spectacular views. The rooms are perfectly comforting and wonderfully in keeping with their idyllic surroundings.

The Rest

As soon as you step through the doors into the cosy and homely, dog friendly pub your worries instantly melt away. There is a gorgeous guest lounge area with deep sofas snuggled around a roaring fireplace ensconced by bookshelves with row upon row of books, DVDs and games just waiting to steal your attention away from any work woes. The fireplace flanked dining room is an elegant spot from which to enjoy a magnificent pub dinner or for more old school authenticity dine in the public bar.

The Cost

Double/Twin rooms come in at a nice and simple £110 per night all year round. The Penthouse will set you back £200 so is over our price promise. Bring your canine friends for only £15 per night.
