The Grade II listed Manor House was originally built in the 19th century as a private residence, and despite its rather imposing exterior, it retains a homely charm. There are 13 rooms in total, all with en-suite bathroom facilities. It’s worth noting that there is no lift at the hotel, due to the historic nature of the building. Furthermore, some rooms are located in the top floor of the building where there are sloped ceilings, and guests who are particularly tall may find these rooms uncomfortable, so it’s best to check in advance of your booking.

Rooms are styled in a manner that reflects the building’s Victorian heritage with antique style furniture. In-room amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities, and free toiletries. Rooms are also fitted with desks and comfortable chairs, and many have period features, such as high ceilings and large sash windows.
