Proper country inn.

You will find The Hare and Hounds to be a traditional country inn in the best of ways, and the wonderful valley setting and views makes for great walks and lends a beautiful ambience otherwise known as peace and quiet.


Refurbished rooms appreciated.

Guests were very happy with the refurbished rooms, which were found to be of a decent size, clean, featuring lovely bathrooms, and some even coming with roll top baths.


Great and accommodating staff.

The Hare and Hounds team is known for its friendly, efficient service, is accommodating to every request and need, and dogs are also very welcome in all areas of the inn.
