Recently stayed for a night as a stopover travelling north from London. Stayed in the self contained suite. We enjoyed the large space of the authentic beamed room, and the privacy of its own entrance with adjacent parking. The decor is charming, the twin adjacent beds spacious and comfortable. In addition there was a separate comfortable lounge. Breakfast superbly cooked from local produce and home produced jams, by a very friendly and relaxed host in a large range styled kitchen completed a very satisfactory experience. Would definitely return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in beautiful gardens, The Old House has been in the Sharplin family home for over twenty two years. It is a 16th century Grade II listed building and was originally built as a ‘Hall House.’ Over the years it has undergone many changes, the most significant being the addition of two massive inglenook fireplaces built from pink Shropshire sandstone in the centre of the house, where originally there was just an open hearth fire with a hole in the roof. Surprisingly for such an early house, the ceilings are high, probably because the current floor level resulted from a cellar infill. The rooms are all large and with many exposed original beams. ... more less
