Smoking is not permitted on the premises, and any persons wanting to smoke must do so in the allocated areas outside of the building. Smoking in the bedrooms attracts a mandatory room ‘out of order’ charge of one night's tariff.


Well-behaved dogs are welcome in some rooms at a charge of £12.50 per stay.

We kindly ask you not to leave your dog in the room unattended and that you do not allow your dogs on any soft furnishings – failure to do so will attract an additional service charge.


All reservations made after 1st January 2018 must be guaranteed with credit/debit card – If cancelled within 72 hours of arrival the first night's accommodation rate including VAT will be charged.

We guarantee that if you are not completely delighted with your stay we will offer a full refund.


We reserve the right to charge guests the cost of rectifying damage caused by the deliberate, negligent or reckless act of the guest to the Inn’s property or structure. Should this damage come to light after the guest has departed, we reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit / debit card, or send an invoice for the amount to the registered address. We will however make every effort to rectify any damage internally prior to contracting specialists to make the repairs, and therefore will make every effort to keep any costs that the guest would incur to a minimum.
