We stayed here just for one night, in a family room with our baby. We were well looked after and the very friendly staff were very helpful with my request for a cot bed. We had a very pleasant room with a large bathroom, comfortable beds, and a good breakfast the next morning. We didn't explore the surrounding area as... More

We stopped here in March for 2 nights. The inn is lovely and we had 2 great meals. Staff are friendly too. Not much around it unless you like walking trips which wasn't our thing. Would recommend to people but wouldn't stay again personally because of its location.

The bed was very comfy so a good nights rest was had. The bathroom was large, bright and again spotless. You really couldn't fault the room at all. Tea and... More

Came by for dinner. Atmospheric building which is more than what can be said for the food. Very ordinary food with an extraordinarily high cost. The Pheasant in nearby Cumwhitton (about 5 minutes way by car or a 40 minute walk) has better quality dishes and is much better value for money.

Beautiful ond building with long history. Nice room, good food and helpful stuff - what else do you need? Only negative thing is the location, there is nothing else at Faugh, but with a car that is not a problem.
