We stayed at Newport House, a replica 18th C home with 21st C comforts, 10 minutes walk from the historic centre.. John and Cathy Millar are a mine of information about local 18thC history, politicians and architects, and the care of their garden, birds and bees. They are make it all so interesting
Their activities include English Country Dancing, which they host, and the building of replica 18thC warships - and more besides.
We thoroughly recommend a visit..
