The Porch House has been a millennia in the making and it was worth every minute. Every nook and cranny of our extraordinary Porch House exuberates centuries-old character within its rustic stone walls. Embellished with twisting crooked staircases, roaring open fires and low slung ceilings that are beamed with ancient timber.
We’re sure our Inn could tell a tale or two if it could talk. Unfortunately it can’t but we think our show stopping dwelling with its dazzling decor, flavoursome fare and abundance of tantalising tipples truly does speak for itself.
About the hotel
For over a thousand years, weary travellers have crossed our threshold to seek shelter and grab a great night’s kip. The Porch House has never failed to deliver a home away from home to all who enter here. Our ancient abode has stood the test of time – eleven centuries of it to be more accurate – bequeathing it the staggering title of England’s Oldest Inn. Despite being the oldest inn in England our enchanting establishment is anything but dated. With its jaw-dropping decor and lashings of modern day luxuries it’s certain to make your stay an unforgettable one. Come see for yourself, enter as our guest and leave as our friend.
