History of the hotel

The focal point of village life for well over a century, the Baiting House was traditionally where drovers and waggoners climbing the hill with their horses would stop for “bait" (the local word for food, or a small snack). The earliest census records go back to 1840, when a wheelwright called Peregrine Perkins occupied the property and had a useful sideline as a beer maker.

Having fallen into disrepair at the beginning of the current decade, the Baiting House closed completely early in 2015, but has been totally refurbished and re-born since being bought by local couple Andrew and Kate in September 2015.

Dogs Policy

Well behaved dogs are welcome in some hotel rooms and in the public areas of the Baiting House. There is an additional charge of £15 per night for overnight doggie guests. A complimentary water bowl and dog biscuits are available in the bar.
