About Our Hotel - FAQ

The building is a 17th century coaching inn that would have been a main stop on the London to Bristol route. Today, The Yard is a luxury boutique hotel with fifteen bedrooms housed around a central courtyard, including a relaxed coffee spot and wine bar too. 

The bedrooms have a muted colour palette, natural fabrics and textures with a mix of antique furniture to sit alongside new pieces. Each bedroom, we hope, feels like a calm and relaxed environment with a simple aesthetic focusing on classic beautiful features.

The hotel has a welcoming, relaxed wine bar which extends out into the private courtyard in the warmer months, which is open to both hotel residents and non-residents. 

The bar menu offers a selection of interesting and usual wines, cocktails and beers, alongside the classics. Bar nibbles, such as roasted nuts and olives are served as well as small plates of local cheese. Coffee, tea, cakes and fresh pastries are served throughout the day.
