A centuries old inn, this felt like a local pub with rooms, that has seen better days. Full of timbers and beams, and wonderfully 'wonky'. It was nice to meet Robin and all the staff. We had quite a long wait for someone to attend to reception, as it seemed there were not enough staff. They also had us confused...

A return visit to the Swan Hotel and a thoroughly great 4 night stay. So good to meet Robin, Luke and Jean again and the other staff at the Hotel who made our stay such a good one.

We spent a night in the hotel as we were attending a wedding nearby. All the staff were incredibly attentive, the room was spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay greatly. The only downside was that the water pressure was not sufficient for a good shower.

We called in for carvery. It was in the off chance. But they found us a table and made very welcome. The carvery was amazing so much food to choose from. And it was cooked beautifully. Such a good price too! Will definitely be back

We were in the area to attend a wedding, and wanted to arrive the day before the event, and leave the day after, as it was some distance from home. We booked 'The Swan' online, and although the reviews that we read were mixed, we decided to give it a shot. The idea of spending the time in a building...

Yes this is an old hotel but with great character and charm. Food was beautiful the staff are so lovely and the setting of this village is picture perfect. Our room was so clean. This hotel is not modern by any means but who wants modern-day this is a little quirky place and we loved it.
