We were very impressed by this very well run establishment. The room on the balcony overlooking the courtyard was very comfortable, roomy and had a great walk-in shower as requested,which suited me as I had recently had a replacement hip. The food at breakfast and in the evening was very good indeed, but the most impressive thing about our stay...

Stayed 3 nights here mid january and really do hope to return. The Globe is a beautiful old coaching inn packed with atmosphere. Our room was above the restaurant in main building, it was so comfortable with good bathroom, tv, wifi, tea/coffee making. The bar is full of locals every evening and a really convivial spot.

Lovely place the room was comfortable, clean and very well presented. The staff were all very friendly, kind and helpful.

The only down side was the parking, there is limited parking within the hotel grounds, and we managed to park for the first...

We stopped at The Globe with another couple and were given a warm welcome. The rooms were lovely, well modernised, but this traditional pub has managed to retain it's original integrity, feeling cosy and inviting. Will certainly stay again next time we are in the area.
