There are two separate rooms in the pub area as well as a lovely outdoor courtyard.

One of the rooms, described by the host as “the snug room” is furnished with two couches, a comfortable chair and even boasts a crackling wood fire.

The pub is fitted with a professional kitchen that is stocked in the morning with bacon and eggs from a nearby farm.

Upstairs there are five en-suite bedrooms, four with double beds and one with two single beds.

Patrons can book ahead draught beers and other alcoholic beverages they would like for their stay.

It can be booked for up to ten people for at least two nights.

The Owner of the property, David, described the listing as: “Why stay in a property for 10 people that only has say 2 bathrooms, what a nightmare.

“All our 5 rooms are en-suite. Accommodation and relaxing areas where you can choose who you share the space with.

“Fully functional bar and fully operational commercial kitchen. Complete privacy in the country.

“Be the chef or barman, pour your own pint and cook in our fully operational commercial kitchen. Complete comfort and privacy in your own pub.”
