A wonderful country setting with fabulous furnishing and fantastic food and drinks, however if you plan to stay DO NOT book a downstairs room, unless you want a sleepless night. You can hear every single footstep above, shower , and if the person above snores it is like they are next to you! Not great for a £150 per night...

We had a young man called Will serving us, he was welcoming to the point it...

It wasn't until I spotted 'Great Food Made Simple' that I realised who owned the Inn & some of the delicious dishes we ate are in the book, I think I must have all of John Topham's cookery books, they are amazing. We stayed for 1 Night, the room was comfortable & our evening meal excellent. Laurence looked after us...
