A 1920s house captured in time
Step back in time to the 1920s and find out how a grocer’s family lived in this market town. This ordinary semi-detached house, with original interior decorations from 1923, was the home of the Straw family.

For 60 years the family threw little away and chose to live without many of the modern comforts we take for granted.

Photographs, letters, Victorian furniture and household objects spanning 100 years can still be seen exactly where their owners left them.

We stayed there the 28th 29th Dec 2026 for my sisters wedding. It was amazing the whole event from us turning up the day before the big day to us leaving lunch time the day after. The hotel staff was so helpful and nice, nothing was to much trouble. I would like to thank Jess and especially Alice who was the MC for the wedding for assisting us. Good choice at breakfast hot and cold, all cooked fresh. The meal we had for the wedding breakfast was excellent so tasty. The rooms are nice and very clean, if you are thinking of getting married I would definitely recommend the bridal suite it is so spacious the extra room Is needed when getting the bride ready. Even though it was a winter wedding we used the stunning gardens for the photos. This hotel is an ideal place to get married all year round. The wedding day was perfect.l would definitely return. See you soon

Had our wedding reception here on the 6th August 2016 and everything was amazing. The staff were so helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble from the planning till the next morning. The venue, the grounds, the bridal suite and hotel rooms were all absolutely fabulous. We could not have asked for anything more would highly recommend this venue. Our guests were very impressed and all had an enjoyable afternoon as did we. Thank you very much for everything 🙂

“So good we stayed there twice”

“We felt relaxed from the minute we arrived. The room was clean, light and airy. Good WiFi access and comfy beds too. All in all the staff were superb, friendly polite and helpful right across the board from front of house to maintenance, housekeeping and gardening. Several weddings whilst we were there but all seemed to run like clockwork.  We’ll be back to explore the area and to be treated so well by such lovely well-matched staff.”
