This rural retreat bed and breakfast is quiet and cosy, with well equipped, warm rooms and ensuite. Abbey Bridge was constructed as a public house back in 1832, back then it was named The Black Bull. Made from local sandstone with a slate roof, it is a Grade II listed building. During the later part of the 19th century, like many public houses within the area, Abbey Bridge became an Inn.

The beds in this b and b guest house are exceptionally comfortable, and leisurely breakfasts serve fresh, local produce, where possible, for both vegetarians and meat eaters. Dinner can be provided with prior notice and you might be happy to know they are licensed, so you can have that beer or wine you’ve earned! If you order in advance, packed lunches are also available to get you through the next travelling day.
