The Crown


The Crown opened its own boutique Hotel in 2008. Situated separately and to the rear of the pub, you will find 11 luxuriously appointed bedrooms, all en suite and with every attention to detail. The atmosphere is one of effortless style and the emphasis is on comfort and excellent service.

Designed in sympathy with the beautiful surroundings, the Hotel feels as fresh and new as the day it opened.

Bedrooms on the ground floor are contemporary in design whilst the rooms upstairs are furnished in a country home style with traditional iron bedsteads. All have King size or Super King size beds with luxury pocket sprung mattresses. Three rooms have French windows opening on to their own terrace.

Rooms are rated Standard, Superior, Deluxe and Executive . All have en suite bathrooms with stylish fittings. One room has disabled facilities with a level wet room.
