          We are interested in a self drive holiday to this hotel but can find no mention of a car park on the website. Can someone tell me whether there is a car park and, if so, is it big enough and is it free? (We have noticed that Shearings hotels are increasingly charging for parking).

          Quite a large car park but they charge per day. When we were there there were 3 coaches in so ample parking spaces.
