The New Hobbit Country Inn, Restaurant & Wedding Venue.


As you walk into the bar/restaurant area, surrounded by beautiful decorations, tasteful furnishings and a welcoming wood burning stove, you realise that you are in a very special place. From the amazingly architected ‘log wall’ to the oak topped bar and dining tables and sumptuous settees in the lounge area, you know you are going to be able to relax and enjoy your time there.

The regular visitors, some walkers enjoying a stroll through the surrounding countryside, some locals from the nearby villages or those from out of town enjoying their first stay in the newly refurbished rooms, are all welcomed by the friendly, attentive staff who will put your needs first and go that extra mile to ensure that your experience at The New Hobbit is one that you will thoroughly enjoy and definitely want to repeat.
