A family business

Peter Ratcliffe has over 30 years in the hotel industry so when this local 200 year old country house hotel came up for sale, he jumped at the chance to take on the project. His wife Alisa is in charge of design, and his son Michael is part of the management team.

Peter says: ‘I always knew this was a special place. It has such a classic feel to it, and it’s in such a beautiful part of the countryside. Owning this hotel is my dream come true, and I want to see it go from strength to strength.

Classic country house hotel

With its eighteen individually designed rooms, oak-panelled restaurant and large gardens, The Bedford Arms is a classic English country house hotel. The hotel has just undergone a restoration and refurbishment in the beginning of 2014.


Licensed for weddings, the Bedford Arms is the perfect place for other special occasions too. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, it’s the ideal setting to enjoy a relaxing break with your every need catered for.
