I found this property by searching some B&B website, then went to the hotel's own site for more info. When I discovered it was a retreat house that rented rooms out when not hosting retreats, I was sold. This wouldn't be a good choice for party animals, but if you're Catholic, it's a must-do.
We stayed in Wessex Room, a double with en-suite bathroom. It was huge by English standards, good-sized by American standards.
While the hotel looks a bit out-of-the-way, the maps don't show the pedestrian undercrossing that makes a good shortcut to the train station. We took a cab ride there for under six pounds because it was raining hard, but walked around town and back to the train station.
