Good Hotel Guide Review
Plush and ‘convivial’, this luxury hotel on the edge of the ‘stunning’ Ribble valley is ‘an old favourite of local residents’. Settle in: newspapers are ‘thoughtfully provided’ for reading by the fire in the ‘comfortable’ public rooms; the seductive bar has a fine list of cocktails. Food is at the heart of the operation. In the Michelin-starred restaurant, chef/patron Nigel Haworth and Lisa Goodwin-Allen cook ‘outstanding’ modern dishes (including accomplished vegetarian menus) using organic produce from the kitchen garden. Try salt-baked celeriac, mushroom cigar, orchard apples; charcoal roast Herdwick lamb, spinach, pistachio crumble, Sicilian lemon marmalade. Stay the night in individually designed bedrooms in the 19th-century manor house or a garden lodge; the best have a private terrace. ‘Our spacious room overlooked garden and countryside. We had a comfortable bed; plenty of storage and reading material.’ In the morning, ‘orders are taken for breakfast’: freshly squeezed juices, home-made jam, home-baked bread; a ‘comprehensive’ list of cooked dishes, including Lancashire cheese soufflé. On the North West motorway network; ideally located for trips to and from Scotland.
