We had a two night stay in one of the shepherds huts , we stayed in Cedar. The huts are lovely with a fridge, kettle and a small stove that we cooked jacket potato in , may be a toaster and microwave would be be a nice addition . The huts were clean and very warm , we used the Japanese wood fired soak tub , easy to light the fire and keep it going ,ended up getting very hot , totally enjoyed it , the privacy is perfect , all done with a lot of thought and to height specifications was lovely to sit in the evening with a drink around the fire pit , an extra bounce breakfast in the pub was included in the stay extremely good breakfast , we eat in the pub on our first night good food at a fair price . A great week had .

Convenient parking right outside our room and very friendly welcome. Lovely large room, spotlessly clean and a huge comfortable bed. Quality biscuits and tea making facilities. Fantastic walk in shower. There was plenty of storage and it was easy to adjust the heating. Good WiFi. Dinner and breakfast were both outstanding. Only wish we could have stayed longer to sample more of their dishes.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the White Horse inn for a friends wedding and we were very impressed. It was a bit of a pricier hotel, but after staying there we think it is definitely worth the extra money. Our room was gorgeous and clean, with really high quality amenities. We both agreed that it was the comfiest hotel bed we have ever slept on and we had superb nights sleep! It is really nice touch to have access to so many apps on the TV, made us feel at home and cosy. We had an accessible bathroom which was clean and very roomy. My only nag is to do with the doors (room 8): they are very heavy and close together meaning it’s really difficult to open both at the same time, meaning you have to fully go into the hallway and close the bedroom door to be able to open the bathroom doors. Something someone with accessibility issues could struggle with? Breakfast was superb, you are able to pick from a breakfast menu which I would recommend as the continental is quite limited. I would definitely recommend having dinner in the restaurant as the food was gorgeous, not a single complaint (haddock and chips is incred). FYI if you book your hotel room directly with the hotel (rather than e.g. booking.com) you get £25 off a meal in the restaurant. Overall a really really lovely stay, and I hope to return in the future.

Stayed here as we were attending a wedding nearby and the Inn had been recommended by the mother and father of the bride. Room was clean, spacious , warm (very welcome on a cold evening) and was well equipped. Especially loved the power shower in the bathroom! Only small negative for me was the outside light that shone through the glass panel in the door. I admit that I like a room dark to enable me to sleep but solved this by hanging a suit carrier over the door. Had booked an evening meal as well as breakfast and both were excellent with generous sized portions. Staff were all helpful and friendly -in all, a lovely stay and would definitely book here again if I was staying in the area. I also really loved the bronze head in the bar of the smiling girl-would love to know the details of the sculptor! Thank you again

We done the dinner stay and breakfast, very good value for money. We had a fanatic stay celebrating my daddy’s birthday, the room was clean and spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The only issue we had (reason for 4 star not 5 stars) we did discuss this matter with one of the senior team members, we had one of the waitresses who had bad attitude, throwing down our cutlery, she was even coming over to us with her coat on to collect things, didn’t ask if we was finished with items she was taking, just came and took it all with not even a smile. The waitress wasn’t rude but you could tell she didn’t want to be there. Unfortunately this did damper our evening. Everything else was fantastic and we would still recommend.

My grandad, partner and I had a lovely meal this evening. We arrived 15 mins early but it wasn’t a problem and we were taken straight to our table. Prompt service and friendly servers. Food was well presented and absolutely delicious. Will definitely recommend and visit again

We had eaten here a couple of times then saw their Friday getaway: dinner, bed & breakfast deal so decided to give it a go and were not disappointed. Room was spotless, food fantastic and staff friendly. Easy to get to and lots of parking. A beautiful traditional Inn in the countryside

My family and I have just had the most wonderful dining out experience at the White Horse. It was very busy when we arrived on the Saturday afternoon as it was Mothers day weekend. We were greeted warmly by a member of staff and shown to our table in a spacious part of the dining area. We did not have to wait long at all to place our drinks and meal order and this was brought to us by a friendly waiteress. Two of our party had steak, another had a vegetarian option and I had the honey and mustard chicken, all the meals were well presented and piping hot. I have no hesitation in stating that this was one of the best meals we have had in a long time. Well done !! The White Horse !!
