Nearest hotel is the Swallow which is a short hop halfway between Junc 31 (M6) and Samlesbury Hall Stanley House is the grandest on the edge of Blackburn about 2 miles past Samlesbury Hall Theres a Premierlodge near the hall to0 on the otherside of British Aerosapce on A59 Balderstone Thats the choices really covers all budgets. Oh the other option would be the Macdonald Ticked Trout at Junc 31 (6)
