CHARACTER & STYLE
With a full-height grand entrance, a brick fireplace and a wooden staircase to the upper floors, there is plenty of rustic charm and period opulence from the moment you step inside the hotel. In the wood-panelled gun room, Chesterfield sofas jostle with leather wingback armchairs, while a large bay window seat is a popular spot for groups of friends in the main pub.
Staff will be happy to point you in the direction of the best picnic spot (and pack a picnic for you). Fancy staying cosy indoors? Grab a chessboard and a spot by the fire. If you fancy a walk but didn't come prepared, you can borrow a pair of Hunters.
