4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2008

My wife and I were on a "no reservations" car tour through England and happened upon the Fisherman's Cot by accident (or should I say almost an accident) as we crossed the 13th century (one lane) bridge mentioned in an earlier review. My wife thought the Fisherman's cot looked like a great place to stay (or at least to eat) so we turned around and went back. The front desk person was very friendly and set us up with a very nice corner room for around $90 US with a view of the bridge and the large brook/small river it crossed. With the window cracked open the sound of the water babbling over the rocks was very soothing at night. Everything in the room functioned properly. We planned on staying only one night but found the accomodations and restaurant so pleasant we ended staying over an additional night. There is really not a lot around the hotel, but if you just want to relax for a couple of days it is a great spot.

  • Liked — View, Restaurant
  • Disliked — Crossing the bridge!
