The earliest reference to the Bay Horse Hotel at Wolsingham is 1827, though it is believed to be older. The original building was destroyed in the early 1920’s when a raging fire burnt down the hotel. The Bay Horse was once again rebuilt, with an additional storey. The veranda and distinctive bay windows remained the same and the hotel became one of the most striking and distinguished buildings in the village.

This a probably one of the worst places I have had the misfortune of staying at.
On arrival we were told that we couldn't check in as the internet was down however could we order our breakfast so that the chef could prepare it. We asked if we could complete the check in later and go to our room but we're met with a blank look. However we were persistent and given a key and shown to our room. The bathroom tiles and floor were dirty and the shelf was on such a slope nothing could be put on it. Breakfast although pre ordered took 50 minutes to arrive. The bacon was cold and uncooked and the food slid off the plate with the grease. If there was a minus score to be given I would. Avoid this place like the plague don't waste your money

It was a lovely traditional pub with character and I had a lovely quiet relaxing night there.
