We have been coming to the Plough for over thirty years - We spent New Year's Eve at the Plough - our second NYE there over the last few years. The hotel is small and comfortable, and NYE was more like a house party than a stay in a hotel. The staff are incredibly nice and friendly (especially Dory) and...
