Lonely Planet review

Small and select, this elegant 16th-century place is named after a ‘brass nose’, or a brass door-knocker, to be precise. The door-knocker in question resides above the high table in the dining hall and is very well travelled: in 1533, it made it all the way to Stamford, Lincolnshire, only to be returned in 1890 along with the house to which it was attached at the time.
