work stop over
been here many time, never fails to impress.

Beautiful boutique hotel
Excellent stay, beautiful room and fantastic bathroom. We slept wonderfully as it was quiet after around 10 pm. The best bit was breakfast, cooked to order. I’d gladly stay again.

Very Good8.0
Real Ale
Overall we enjoyed our stay, but I as a CAMRA member found the cost of Pride of Pendle on the expensive side as was the Lakeland Ale, CAMRA have been campaigning to keep the cost of real Ale at a reasonable price and considering that in my area in The Pendal Witch, Pride is £2-65, Holts in the Atherton Arms is £2-22 and Bank Top Flat Cap in the Jolly Nailor is £2-30, £3-50 is London Prices such as one would find in the Doric Arms at Euston Station not in rural Lancashire!

Well worth the stay.
Easily the best food I've had whilst staying away from home. Really nice location and a very friendly staff. Heartily recommend.

The Cartford Inn
Great Location
This is a really nice pub with rooms. The food in the restaurant was really good and the staff all very friendly especially the chap at breakfast. The room was well planned with the bed in the middle of the room to take advantage of the river views although this did cut down on the floor area. Very nice bathroom too.
