Coach and Horses
“A delightful place. The rooms are luxurious with a country house/pub feel. Very good hospitality.” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
The Coach and Horses is a Grade II listed coaching inn in the idyllic village of Bolton by Bowland. There are many original features, saved by the current owners from the ravages of time, but all with a modern twist. A stylish bar retains a village pub feel and an elegant restaurant has views into kitchen and also into the onsite microbrewery ('4 Mice Brewery' – be sure to try their Goldie). Seven bedrooms are individually styled with a nod to its history as a traditional coaching Inn and luxuriously appointed with a wealth of little extras. Food is a highlight with a wide choice here from pub classics to involved contemporary British cuisine featuring the local larder. There is a beer garden to the rear to kick back and enjoy the summer weather.

About the area
Lancashire was at the centre of the British cotton industry in the 19th century, which lead to the urbanization of great tracts of the area. The cotton boom came and went, but the industrial profile remains. Lancashire’s resorts, Blackpool, Southport and Morecambe Bay, were originally developed to meet the leisure needs of the cotton mill town workers. Blackpool is the biggest and brashest, celebrated for it tower, miles of promenade, and the coloured light ‘illuminations’. Amusements are taken very seriously here, day and night, and visitors can be entertained in a thousand different ways.
The former county town, Lancaster, boasts one of the younger English universities, dating from 1964. Other towns built up to accommodate the mill-workers with back-to-back terraced houses, are Burnley, Blackburn, Rochdale and Accrington. To get out of town, you can head for the Pennines, the ‘backbone of England’, a series of hills stretching from the Peak District National Park to the Scottish borders. To the north of the country is the Forest of Bowland, which despite its name is fairly open country, high up, with great views.
