Tasteful country inn with bells on

Wheelchair accessible

This charming 18th-century country inn is located in the heart of the village, overlooking beautiful dale scenery. The attractively furnished bedrooms, including suites, are split between the main house and the rear courtyard. After returning from a long walk, guests might like to have a drink in the cosy bar with its welcoming log fire. Good local produce features extensively on the menus that can be enjoyed in the oak-panelled restaurant, or more informally in the bar. Service is both friendly and attentive.
