Good Hotel Guide Review
On a working organic farm, this quirky, affable pub-with-rooms reflects the vision of food ethics pioneer Helen Browning. The well-established pub (Arkell’s Brewery) is loved for the real ales, organic wines and generous meals (meat, nuts, fruit, milk and honey from the farm). Set around a sunny courtyard, appealingly rustic bedrooms have their own front door, woollen throws, a comfy bed. Each is named after a field on the farm (immortalized by a giant photo). The residents’ lounge, with books, hot drinks, a record-player (and Helen’s partner Tim’s old LPs) is made for ‘wallowing in’. From the pub, circular walks take in woodland, orchards and the farm’s pigs, sheep and cattle.
