A 17th-century gabled stone house in a small garden next to St. Giles Church, the Old Parsonage is a dignified retreat. Dark red walls, eclectic art, and a crackling wood fire give the lobby a distinguished look. The newly refurbished guest rooms favor plum, purple, and grey with wool, linen, and velvet materials; bathrooms are rich with marble. Memorable meals by the fire (or in the walled garden terrace in summer) keep people coming back. Afternoon teas with scones and
clotted cream are excellent.

Beautiful & comfortable place in the center of it all. Wonderful breakfast. Friendly staff. Most rooms appear to be in the newer extension to the house but are not without charm. Pretty courtyard and dining room- lovely breakfast. It is a bit pricey but worth it.
