We regularly eat at the Inn at Whitewell, and the standard of the food has always been excellent. The staff are very welcoming and the service has always been first class. The place has a great atmosphere and on a warm day enjoying a drink on the patio overlooking the River Hodder simply can't be be...

We had a very lovely weekend in The Piggery with two other couples. Very well appointed with delightful crisp cotton sheets on very comfortable beds. Food in the bar restaurant (we all had dogs who quite rightly are not allowed in the dining room) was delicious and varied. All staff we met couldn't...

This hotel is simply wonderful. We have stayed here a few times and always feel life's cares recede once snuggling in a cosy room with a real peat brick fire and view to die for. The food is memorable, the service efficient and low key but people-watching here is perhaps my favourite pastime.

We stayed for our 1st wedding anniversary, 12 months after having spent the night before our honeymoon there. From our arrival to departure the staff were excellent, with us and our dog. Within five minutes of being taken to our room; someone arrived to light a peat fire and a tray of coffee was...

Brilliant. Just come back from two nights at the Inn. From start to finish it was faultless; staff, service, comfort, food... it's a great place for an escape. We had room 9 which is described as quite small. It isn't. We saw rooms 8 and 9 in which friends were staying, and they were larger but all...

This hotel is an absolute hidden gem. The food is amazing, you must try thier scones if you go there. The hotel rooms are very cosy and just ooze with authenticity. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. This Inn dates back to the 13th century. The location can be a bit hard to find but it's...
