Located only 2 miles outside Padiham, but is nicely isolated for a short and quiet break. Staff in all areas were always efficient and pleasant, and appeared keen to be helpful. Room was small but tidy and comfortable, though sound travels through the walls if there is somebody next door shouting into their phone. On the ground floor, there are... More

Higher Trapp Country House Hotel is a lovely place to stay in beautiful surroundings. The only drawback for me is that I prefer to eat in a restaurant and not a bar. Here you don't have a choice. The restaurant is the bar.

We stayed here on the final night of our trip to the Lakes and overall found this better value for money than the 4* Kendal Best Western we stayed in the night before. Beautiful scenery, excellent staff service and good quality rooms. Generous parking and excellent food. Fitzy's Bar was lovely, good food, fantastic service and all reasonably priced. A... More

We had a lovely room, every single member of staff was efficient and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. I mentioned that it was our 30th wedding anniversary and all the staff again went out of their way to make our stay extra special. We had a wonderful time, thank you to them all.
