Hence we have grand rooms with high ceilings which make your stay even more pleasant than you expected. We have a More spacious lounge where you can sit and chat, play games, or just read whilst enjoying a drink purchased from our bar.This is a nice quiet establishment ideally suited for the coastal path for walkers, opposite Hillsborough Nature reserve, and a good stopping point for those wanting to travel to Lundy island. Also all of our rooms have a stunning view of our local scenery. Come and enjoy the personal touch from ourselves, where we go out of our way to help you enjoy your stay no matter how short Less
