We stayed at Spring Cottage, which is part of the Old Hall Inn complex and self-catering. If you are of the older generation then this cottage has character and the food at The Old Hall Inn will be enjoyable. Our family are younger and unfortunately our children found the cottage old fashioned and small . They found the food at The Old Hall Inn to be a bit 'grown up' for them also. The main room (there are just two) has a small double bed (a bit small for my husband and I and I did nearly fall out once - quite funny). The window latches in the bathroom were broken so they couldn't be closed, but the owner did explain that it was probably because they were well used and did offer to put something up if we wanted. The upstairs we found small and the heating seemed to come on in the morning upstairs when the hot water was put on so the room was very warm (considering it's summer). The traffic noise was very loud so sitting in the garden wasn't a good experience because of this and opening the bedroom window let the noise in also. The shower is good though and the locals friendly.
As there were no rooms left in the Old Hall we rented the cottage, although we didn't know where it was. What a surprise we had when we were shown the cottage. Just perfect, and wished we could have stayed for longer. Everything is there to allow you to stay there just one night as we did or stay for much longer. Just by the two pubs, its in the prefect position. Dan has got managing and running the two pubs to a tee. The location, the food (fantastic steak and steak and ale pudding, and of course a superb breakfast), the cask ale of course, the cleanliness, the service. I could go on. This was our 4th visit and probably the best. Just a brilliant place to be. Well done Dan and see you soon.

My son and I stayed here for one night and really enjoyed it. After a long day spent sightseeing we had a fabulous meal in the pub. Lovely service and really friendly staff.

The cottage is warm and comfortable and the real fire is an added bonus. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food at the Old Hall is excellent and we fully enjoyed our evenings spent at the restaurant.
Had a lovely few days away. Cottage very comfortable with everything we needed. Great food in the pub. My only complaint was the steak and ale pudding - so good it left no room for the gorgeous desserts! Seriously though, the pub had a great selection of beers. Daniel was a good host. Will definitely consider a return visit.
