on .

With only a few days to go, we wanted to take this opportunity on behalf of everyone at the Pheasant Inn to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Providing world class care, the Children’s Heart Unit is one of only two centres in the UK offering paediatric heart transplants and delivers exceptional care for critically ill babies, children and young people. You can find out more about CHUF at

We've had a superb 2014 and can’t quite believe it is just over a week until we welcome in 2015. There have been many highlights this year, but what sticks out in my mind (particularly on this wet and blustery day!) is the wonderful warm summer weather we had. The summer of 2014 was probably the best we’ve had since 2009 and it was a joy to see everyone making use of our beautiful gardens. Looking forward to 2015, we are pleased to announce that we will be refurbishing our dog friendly Garden Lodge rooms early in the year and refreshing our menus for each changing season. In fact one of our favourite winter dishes is currently on our specials board, a delicious local pheasant casserole - although you do need to watch out for buckshot!

Thanks very much to all our loyal and wonderful customers and we look forward to welcoming you again soon. For anyone considering a short break to beat the January and February blues, we do have 2 and 3 night winter ‘treat’ offers from as little at £69.50 per person per night. Although the weather might be a bit chilly, we’ve got a warm welcome, roaring log fires and mouth-watering menus to cheer a dark day up. You can even keep up your New Year resolutions with some stunning winter walks, right from the door of our hotel. Find out more here or to book call 017687 76234 (not with on-line booking), quoting TREATS.

Thank-you very much for custom over the past 12 months and we would like to wish you a relaxing Christmas and a prosperous 2015.
