My partner and I spent two nights at The Old Lockup and we could not fault the whole experience.
We stayed in 'The Magistrates Room', which was a brilliant choice for us. Very cool and quirky with a twist of vintage/ french style. Added bonus was a tin of biscuits with the kettle and locally made chocolate truffles on the bed. This was very much appreciated after the long journey!
The breakfasts were perfect. We sampled the pancakes and the cooked breakfast, which set us up for exploring the area.
The owner Tim was very welcoming and gave us plenty of tips on places to check out. There's also free parking just outside the building.
We absolutely loved our stay and we definitely recommend it anyone heading out to that part of the UK.
Thank you very much Tim!
