Good Hotel Guide Review
Just beyond the village, Julie and Patrick Beaumé’s 17th-century coaching inn has winsome views over the River Wyre and is appealingly quirky inside. The eco-minded pair have used upcycled or locally crafted furnishings, and light fittings by a local glassblower. Chic bedrooms have snazzy wallpaper and a Juliet balcony overlooking the river. Lofty penthouse rooms display original beams, exposed brickwork; two treehouse-style ‘pods’ have a split-level bedroom, a spacious lounge. In the highly regarded kitchen, Lancastrian produce cooked by head chef Chris Bury has a Gallic tweak; in the convivial bar, regional cask ales and a house brew. Delicacies from the on-site deli, TOTI, can be picked up for the journey home.
