This charming inn dates from the 17th century, and the public areas showcase a wealth of oak beams, exposed brickwork and open fireplaces. The stylish bedrooms are in a series of cosy cabins behind the premises; each one is attractively furnished and thoughtfully equipped, and the bathrooms are of an equally high standard.
