A modern take on an historic coaching inn

The Bushel built in the 15th century as a coaching inn, providing a layover location for travellers and their horses. Whilst it no longer caters for horses today, the Bushel combines period style and features with a modern hotel stay. You'll find tasteful, traditional touches and furniture that evoke the history of the building, but with up-to-date amenities. The nine elegantly furnished bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, comfortable beds, flatscreen TVs and free Wi-Fi.
