Inn at Whitewell, near Clitheroe, Lancashire

The Inn at Whitewell is situated in a dramatic rural riverside setting on the banks of the River Hodder, with spectacular views down the valley into the heart of the Forest of Bowland and just 7.5 miles from Clitheroe.

Once a small manor house, the earliest parts of the Inn at Whitewell date back to the 1300s, when it was home to Walter Urswick, keeper of the King’s Forest of Bowland.

Now one of the Great Inns of Britain, the Inn at Whitewell is brimming with character. It offers twenty-three en-suite bedrooms which have been individually designed with antique furnishings, paintings and prints and many have open peat fires and overlook the river.

You can enjoy this wonderful location with your canine companion as up to 2 dogs are welcome in all 23 bedrooms at no additional cost. A dog bed will be provided to allow your pet to settle in comfortably.

Your four-legged friend will get a great welcome at the Inn at Whitewell and you can enjoy all public areas except the restaurant.
The Inn deservedly has a good reputation and many awards for its food. Head Chef Jamie Cadman, now in his eighteenth year, runs a crew of ten ably supported by his two sous chefs Gemma and James, producing brilliant local food.

The bar serves a fabulous range of beers, wines and soft drinks, from some very local cask ales to some of the world’s best organic bottled ciders and beers.

The Orangery and the riverside garden provide yet more choices of places to tuck in whilst taking in the views!

There are a magnitude of walks just outside the front door of the Inn at Whitewell to suit all abilities, from full scale yomps across the moors to a relaxed meander through the valley. Reception has a number of walking books and maps and will let you know their favourites so you and your beloved pooch can relax and enjoy a truly wonderful vacation in this stunning location!
