This was our 4th stay at the Wild Boar and we were lucky to book room 10 one of the feature suites. The bedroom was huge, sunny and very welcoming. The bathroom was impressive containing one of the wild boars signature copper baths and a very generous separate shower. There is a bit of a damp problem in the bathroom... More

Had a lovely Sunday morning learning to shoot. I was a little nervous as a first timer but the instructor was great and really helpful. Perfect woodland setting and pleasantly surprised as I wasn't as bad as I thought I would be. Would highly recommend.

We have just returned from an overnight stay at The Wild Boar, at a special local's rate provided by the owners of the hotel chain. On arrival we were upgraded to a 'feature room', which turned out to be conveniently situated just at the top of the main staircase. We found the room (and the bed) to be quite small... More

Just returned from the Wild Boar and enjoyed a our stay very much. Warm welcome and felt at home instantly. Cosy log fires. Fantastic food. Had the best fillet steak I have ever had. The warm crackling with apple sauce and sausages wrapped in bacon with mustard dip are sooo nice. Stayed in the Saddleback room (Room 18) I've uploaded... More

We visited the Wild Boar yesterday and had a clay pigeon shooting session followed by lunch. The instructor was great with us all and offered us invaluable advice on how to shoot the clay. the lunch was lovely also, would definately recommend to others, although I would wrap up warm whilst out in the woods as it was a bit...

From the initial booking through to check out I thought the staff service here was great. We stayed in room 15 which was nicely appointed, very clean and had a nice little patio area. Bathroom wallpaper could do with a bit of TLC. Ambience in the place was great and as mentioned above the team here are very warm and... More

Needed a twin room for three nights from a Thursday to the Sunday. Travelling with a friend to walk the lakes and dine in a hotel for the three nights and maybe do some clay shooting. I could get a twin room for the Thursday and the Saturday but not the Friday. I was quite taken aback by the unhelpful... More

I stayed at this place in conjunction with a business trip. Once you step in on the premises, you feel totally relaxed. Old world charm, great service with a great restaurant and nano brewery on site - what else can you ask for. The inn is kind of remote but I can't think of a better place to wind down... More

My husband & I stayed for the weekend over Valentines. We stayed in a suite which was lovely, the only downside was the bathroom was very small! Staff were very friendly although one girls English was very bad. The cooked breakfast selection was very good but the fruit etc disappointing. Evening meal was lovely. We would definitely go back.
