Come And Stay With Us

Walk through the natural archway of blossoming wisteria that drapes decoratively over the famous honey-coloured stone and let us welcome you. Sink into an armchair as we bring you some refreshments. You’re here to stay and we want you to enjoy it from beginning to end.

Packed to our rafters with history, the flagstone floors, big open fireplaces, and exposed beams have been restored to their former glory to honour the charming character of the building that still stands proud today. However, as much as we cherish the past, we also live for the present. We’re all character and charm, with lots of contemporary furnishings that helps to form our unique style throughout – admire the artwork on our walls and you’ll soon get the picture.
