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. Nestling on the banks of the River Hodder and brimming with character, the Inn has twenty-three en-suite bedrooms which have been individually designed with antique furnishings, paintings and prints; many have open peat fires with some overlooking the river. Some bathrooms feature beautifully restored Victorian 'bathing machines' - canopied baths and showers with huge spray heads.
Head Chef Jamie Cadman and his team serve up wholesome, delicious menus in the bar and dining room, with lots of seasonal and local produce in evidence. 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 riverside garden provide yet more choices of places to tuck in whilst taking in the views!
Residents are welcome to fish for salmon, brown/sea trout and grayling, according to season, on the Inn’s seven-mile stretch of the river. The surrounding countryside can also be explored on foot, bike or horseback; hampers and picnic lunches can be provided for guests planning a day’s outing.
The Inn at Whitewell has a stunning private dining room that is also on the riverside, although it is rather pretentiously named the Orangery it is more a tribute to the views and food than horticultural endeavours.
