We stayed at The Sun Inn thanks to a birthday gift from our family. Previous enjoyable visits to dine at The Sun Inn only made us want to try an overnight stay. We were not disappointed! Room 12 is tastefully furnished and has a lovely bathroom. The room enjoys beautiful views

Seven of the eleven rooms are pet friendly as well as the bar and part of the restaurant. We didn’t take our dog but stayed in on of the rooms. It was spotless, and didn’t smell of dog or a hair in sight.

"Room 3 (on the front) suffered from noise from the pub opposite (despite the fact that new internal glazing has been fitted)."
"We had a standard room overlooking the main street but it was quiet and a good size - had an ensuite with shower."
"Good guide to rooms on travel sites."
"We chose "church view" which was delightful"
"All good, tasteful and comfortable. It is an old building and stairs are steep so if you struggle at all ask for a first floor room."
