Why stay with us? 


We love to make our guests feel spoilt, but stuffy hotel formality isn't really our style - expect really friendly, down-to-earth service with just a touch of luxury thrown in.  We currently have five stunning hotel rooms, each carefully renovated to preserve as much heritage as possible. Our beds are comfortable, decked out in crisp linen with out signature wool duvets, in rooms that have all the modern conveniences you might need.


Whether you are staying over for a few days to experience our village, or just stopping over on your cross-country journey, we would love to welcome you to our hotel.


After a great night's sleep, why not book to join us for a really indulgent breakfast that all of our guests rave about, served with a special blend filter coffee or try some of our speciality teas.

Meet our team...


Weighing in at a hefty 1.2kgs, our CEO (Canine Executive Officer), Sir Knuckles of Richmond, does what every good General Manager of a hotel should do - hanging around in reception, greeting guests and inspecting the property.  He will possibly also be the first to run out the door to greet your car as you drive in.


He can be very persuasive, convincing you that he has not been fed in weeks. Please don't feed him. He's lying.
