Guests can pull into our gated area to unload their belongings. We have maps in the reception area that we give to customers showing the car park locations.

Yes– We are a dog friendly inn with dog friendly rooms. Your four-legged friend is very welcome, all we ask is you bring your own dog bed and towels out of consideration for the other guests. We do charge £20 per stay for your dog to join you in your room (this will be added to your bill on check-in); this is so we can give the room the extra special attention needed afterwards to ensure it is pristine for the next arrivals.

We love to welcome well-behaved owners and their dogs to the inn, but please be aware that not everyone loves your dog as much as you do. To help us keep happy customers of both 2 and 4 legged varieties please observe our simple requests:

– Dogs are allowed in the bar area, but not in the dining only areas
– Please don’t let your dog jump or pester other guests, or their pets or disturb others by barking
– Make sure your dog is clean and dry before they come in to the inn
