Being a popular destination for families with young children, we have two options available at The Stag, to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible.

The first option is our large family room which includes a super-king sized bed as well as a double sofa bed. Or, if you would prefer a little extra space to make your stay even more relaxing, our two interconnecting rooms may be a better option for you, to avoid getting under each other’s feet.

Our interconnecting rooms:
We offer two double bedrooms connected via a private corridor, lined with shelves of *kid’s games and books, to not only keep the little ones entertained so that you also enjoy a well-earned break but to make your accommodation a home-from-home.

Due to limited availability, our interconnecting rooms can only be booked over the phone, so please give us a call on 01483 421568 if you would like to book this option.
