Good Hotel Guide Review
For centuries, this quirky coaching inn by the bridge over the River Wyre has looked across the rural panorama to the Bowland fells. Today, it is owned by Julie and Patrick Beaumé, who have added a community art gallery and an agreeably rustic deli to the boutiquey bedrooms, lively pub and well-regarded restaurant. The modern bedrooms (two refurbished this year) are bold and bright, with eclectic touches; most overlook the winding river. Two imaginatively decorated cabins, each with a split-level bedroom, spacious lounge and river-view balcony, stand in landscaped grounds. Relish Lancastrian produce cooked with a Gallic tweak at lunch and dinner; pick up a snack from the farm shop for the journey home.
