Originally a Georgian coaching inn, the property has been through many changes during its lifetime. When the diarist Francis Kilvert lived opposite in the 1870s, it was a rather boisterous public house, The Swan. One peaceful Easter with the pub shut, he refers to "no noise, rowing or fighting whatever and no men, as there sometimes are, lying by the roadside all night drunk, cursing, muttering, maundering and vomiting”.
Thankfully, times have altered dramatically and after some changes, we are now a very comfortable, some would say, boutique B & B business. We try to provide a little extra, with a very strong emphasis on personal service.
Though not grand in the country house sense, everything has been updated with a nod to the building's Georgian origins but with original design touches and modern fittings throughout.
There are eleven, tastefully furnished en suite bedrooms, two guest sitting rooms, with an honesty bar, books and games galore and a table tennis table.
Room prices start at £116.00 inclusive of a full breakfast, normally taken in our formal dining room. Nine have walk in showers, two with roll top baths and all have Egyptian cotton linen, down pillows, a variety of teas and ground coffee, smart speakers and bathrobes
Check in is normally around 4pm but there are no formal requirements. ETAs are always welcome though, particularly if guests are arriving late. Check out is typically 11.00am but we do not hold fast to it either.
There is ample car parking on site and we also welcome dogs, for which there is a small charge
