Myself and my husband have just returned from a perfect weekend away at the White Swan Inn and couldnt fault anything about our stay. We stayed in one of the Hideaway rooms at the rear of the hotel which are beautifully appointed. We had a very comfy bed with lovely crisp bedding, ample space and a beautiful bathroom with bath...

My wife & I have have delightful memories of this charming rustic coaching inn & great to experience again that the hotel still is as it was. Narrow hotel front hides the depth & size of this unique charming higgledy piggledy building. Bedrooms individually & tastefully furnished & nicely comfortable too.

Stayed here for just one night in one of the stable block rooms just away from the main inn. It was lovely! It's so refreshing to go somewhere and have nothing to complain about. The staff appeared to not only be welcoming and friendly, but they knew what they were talking about; they happily answered our questions about the menu... More

Stayed in a hideaway room for a long weekend in Feb 15. The s accommodation was excellent, very comfortable bed, great bathroom with double ended bath and separate shower all in immaculate condition. The staff were a delight and couldn't do enough to help. Our hairy canine companion was also treated like a VIP! Breakfast was one of the best... More

Stayed for valentines weekend , the staff are all fantastic and very helpful , the room was gorgeous (hideaway room 14) and the food was delicious. The hotel and restaurant were very busy on the Saturday night but despite this we were still looked after brilliantly. We will definitely be returning, maybe next time with the dog!

I stayed here, not for the first time by any means, between Christmas and New Year 2014. This was always a really special treat place with a very personal attentive service, precisely what you would expect in a perfect country setting for the money charged to be honest. I wrote to the owner, Mr Buchanan, and received a response assuring... More

Really disappointed that you have chosen to use such strong language about a member of my staff on here. Bully is a terrible term and in this case not accurate and an exaggeration. I have demanded that TA remove your review and I will be in touch privately. If you are not delighted then we offer a full refund. There... More

We had a very nice private room with a casual sitting area around a real fire, small private bar and a member of White Swan team assigned to look after us. Met at the door by the owner who introduced the team member and she couldn't have been more helpful throughout the evening. Considering the size of the party and... More

Booked dinner bread and breakfast for two nights based on recommendations of friends. Even better than expectations from the greeting by the lovely receptionist, the service from a bubbly young Liverpudlian girl in the cosy bar warmed by an open log fire which we were encouraged to feed. We had booked the hideaway rooms to the rear of the hotel.... More

I stayed at The White Swan recently as part of a shooting party. The bar is really cosy and atmospheric and is a great place to have a drink or two before dining. The food on the night was excellent as was the service throughout our stay. We will definitely be back
