Such a welcoming hotel, fantastic friendly staff. Popped in for a drink on a wet Sunday afternoon. (Dogs welcome 😊) The hotel museum is wonderful, full of character and charm. Would love to go back to spend a night in the hotel.

We had a look around the Hotel and Jane (the owner) told us how people donate items which she displays. We stayed for tea and sandwiches which was very pleasant. Beautiful, charming Hotel with lots of character.
