I can only endorse the other positive reviews of this hotel. As I was brought up in Lancashire, I passed it on many cycle rides through the Trough of Bowland, but I could never afford to stay there! I still think it is a little over-priced for the area, but the quality of the accommodation and of the food cannot be faulted. We stayed in the Coachhouse (Room 24), which meant a two-minute walk in the open air to get to the dining room for dinner and breakfast - not a problem for us, but something you may want to bear in mind. (Umbrellas are provided both in the Coachhouse and in the main building.) One minor criticism - the hotel makes a big play of its feature bathrooms, and certainly the one we had looked fabulous. However, there were a couple of design faults - first, if you wanted to take a bath rather than a shower, it was almost physically impossible to get to the plug mechanism of the bath without climbing into the tub (because of the fixed shower screen); and secondly, the only lighting was ceiling-mounted downlighters, which (according to my wife) are not conducive to the applying of make-up. But these are minor criticisms of what is really an excellent hotel.
