Each room is named after one of the great poets of the nineteenth century, all of whom were writing around the time that The Belfry was planned and built as the village school.  We like our guests to be relaxed and at peace in their room and so not only will you find new Samsung flat screen televisions, tea/coffee facilities but there will be bottled mineral water and biscuits in the room (with the occasional home-made flapjack!).  You will find white waffle-weave bathrobes in the wardrobe for you to wrap up in and of course, the complete works of the poet after whom your room was named may also be found in your room.  There is a guest lounge for you to use and relax with a chosen book from the eclectic mix in the bookcase.

Our beds are made with spotless white 100% cotton sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers and our bathrooms have 100% cotton towels and face flannels (and the bath towels are the biggest on the market).  There is a supply of tea and coffee, herbals, hot-chocolate and malt drinks in your room (these things are important!).  Fresh milk and juices for if you are thirsty are in the fridge under the stairs for you to help yourselves.

Additionally, there is a good and free wireless broadband internet access throughout and all the bathrooms have pressurised water to make Power Showers.
