A Boutique B&B, dining destination and events venue

Bought in 2017 and renovated by Andrew and Christina, Downham Hall has been lovingly refurbished to become a home to welcome guests for a variety of reasons.

Our food offering is exceptional and fast becoming locally renowned, our bedrooms receive extremely complimentary reviews and accolades for their comfort, style and tranquil setting and our events are well appreciated by all attendees. Whilst a visit to us may offer you a perfect spot for breakfast, brunch, lunch or an evening meal, it is undeniably our outstanding views which form the perfect backdrop to your stay or visit here. Whatever the reason for your visit, we take great pride in being a destination venue which provides impeccable service with your every comfort taken into our care and consideration.

We very much look forward to welcoming you here.
