The historic Maids Head has sadly had to close it's doors

It is with a very heavy heart that we announced the closure of The Maids Head Hotel following the Government advise on Tuesday, 24th March, for what potentially is the first time in the Hotel's incredible 800 year history. We will initially remain closed until the end of April, but we will keep you updated as soon as we have some good news to share. Find out more in our blog post.
