Will and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

The hotel is an elegantly converted mansion with just 24 rooms spread over three antique furniture and painting-filled floors. The best bets are the suites and deluxe rooms which overlook an attractive square and the town beyond, and have beamed ceilings, hardwood floors and four-poster beds.

There is a bar serving light snacks and drinks, and a library where guests can relax in the evenings after exploring the town, and good restaurants are plentiful in the surrounding area.

Why we love it
