Macdonald Swan Hotel


AA Logo 3 star rating

Close to Dove Cottage and occupying a prominent position on the edge of the village, this 300-year-old inn is mentioned in Wordsworth's poem, The Waggoner. Attractive public areas are spacious and comfortable, and bedrooms are equally stylish. A modern bar and grill menu is available, while the elegant restaurant offers more formal dining.
