The Historic Pig and Whistle Inn offers welcoming and comfortable accommodation for travellers from near and far, local and international.

The 10 guest rooms have an authentic old English feel, and are all furnished with antiques in keeping with the atmosphere of a country inn and its status as a national monument, along with modern Sealy Posturepedic beds and new Percale linen. 

Of the 10 rooms, four are en-suite, and six are the original 1830s rooms with shared bathroom facilities.

If the age and history of the hotel give you a thrill, ask to stay in room five or room six, both of which were originally the top storey bedrooms of Thomas Hartley's personal home, built in 1821.

Each now featuring two single beds, the two rooms still make a convenient and cozy place for families, as the shared corridor can be shut off to create interleading family rooms.

Many of the other rooms can accommodate an extra mattress on request, and children under 12 years old stay free. Guests older than age 12 sleeping on an additional mattress are charged 180 per person. 

If you're celebrating a special occasion, try to reserve room one, which features a grand king-size four-poster bed, a flat-screen television and an ensuite bathroom with clawfoot bathtub.

Guests are also invited to spend time relaxing in any of the lounge and television areas, where board games and playing cards are available, and fires are lit in the stone fireplace in winter.
