Parties at the Inn

We are a 16th century rural Inn located on the banks of the River Hodder surrounded by breathtaking fells and beautiful scenery in the heart of the gorgeous Forest of Bowland. We have been lucky enough to host fabulous weddings, both large and small, for over 40 years. We are famous for our bedrooms, delicious locally sourced food and our own onsite Vintners.

Our experienced wedding team are on hand from the moment you first step into the Inn, all the way through to your special day. Please scroll down for more information but don’t forget nothing beats conversation, if you have any question please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
