Chequers Holiday Cottage                    

Chequers Farm was once 'Chequers Inn' - whilst the drovers enjoyed the hospitality inside, their cattle took advantage of the excellent grazing facilities outside and around the inn.

The original sign, which hung on the outside of the inn, is mounted in a glass case on the wall of the present building - inscribed on the sign are the words: "BE NOT IN HASTE, STEP IN AND TASTE, ALE TOMORROW FOR NOTHING"
