We stayed here for just one night, on our way to a family gathering and could hardly believe our eyes - not only was the weather in deepest Lancashire absolutely beautiful, but so was this lovely little hotel. Prices are certainly not excessive and the level of comfort and personal attention definitely justified the decision to stay here, rather than the Lancaster Travelodge,
Others have commented on the ear plugs provided to counter the church bells. They are a particular benefit on a Sunday morning, when the bell tolls for a full 5 minutes before 8 am, having struck on the hour as well all through the night. Alternatively, ask for Room 6 (a twin) which seems to be in its own little world, away from outside noise. Our room was well equipped, with a feature bath, but those over 6 ft or with wider than average hips might want to make sure their room has a separate shower too. Getting out wouldn't be easy for everyone....
Breakfast, served from 8.30, was plentiful, freshly cooked and an easy start to the day. We unfortunately couldn't stay for dinner or to sample the cocktail menu but we would love to try those another time.
The owners and staff are extremely good at their jobs - welcoming and friendly without going over the top - and we can only hope that enough people will make the trip to this lovely village to enable them to make this venture a success.
