I stopped off here with friends on our way to a holiday in Cornwall and as it was snowy, we were pleased not to have to make the journey in one day, although roads were fine. Well located close to A303 and also close to the outlet village at Street, which was part of the reason we decided to stop here! It enabled us to combine shopping with travelling, always a nice way to break up a long journey.
I was in a room called Alderley which is a small double on the top floor. As a single traveller I was looking for the cheapest option and the room was cute but I did spend most of the time I was in the room in a stooped position, as the eaves make the headroom very tight! For one night it was fine but I think I might have developed a permanent stoop after a while if I had stayed longer. The four friends I was travelling with were all located in the coach house and given that they were very quiet that night, I didn't really understand why they didn't put me in the empty room next to them - after all changing one double bed is much similar to another and I would have been able to stand up when getting in and out of bed then!! Apart from the lack of headroom, room well well equipped and warm and I slept well, so no complaints about that.
An easy five minute walk into the town where there is a choice of pubs to eat at. We chose the Unicorn and enjoyed a couple of bottles of nice Sauvignon Blanc and some good pub grub. Bar lady was very friendly and cheery. Breakfast at The Lynch in the morning was good - no problems there. Plenty of parking space, nice grounds, easy to find - lots of things going for it. I would stay there again.
