We stay here once a year on our way to a reunion further north. The stopover has become as important as the rest of the week-end as we so look forward to staying here. I cannot recommend it too highly, whether as a break from your journey ( very convenient to the motorway) for a week-end or longer. We spent a very happy week's holiday here, with friends, a few years ago. The inn itself oozes charm and character, the public rooms are smart, stylish and welcoming. Their bar is well-stocked and run by enthusiastic, competent and pleasant staff. The food is always excellent and very attractively presented. Considering the quality, it represents very good value for money. This year we were delighted to find the bedrooms and entire upstairs space have been refurbished to a very high standard. None of the character has been lost and the overall effect is luxurious and 'boutique'. I am looking forward to a longer visit as soon as work commitments permit.
