First built in the 1300s, The Inn at Whitewell has been serving passers by for nearly a century. Built on the Duchy of Lancaster's grounds, it was first used for the workers of the lands. In the 1700s it took on more of the responsibilities it still has today, being a resting place for those passing by on their way to Lancaster.

Now it does it all. Situated next to a little chapel, it is ideally suited for weddings, with a massive gazebo for outdoor events.

There are 23 individually-decorated rooms, where your pooch can stay with you. Water bowls and even food can be provided for your pooch. They do ask that dogs don't sleep on the bed with you and that they are not left alone in the room.

You can stay in the inn through the day and have a wine tasting or spa treatment, snuggle up with a book in front of one of their fires, or play board games. Out of the inn, there are great walks, cycle paths and shooting opportunities, both with camera or gun.

Outside of the rooms, there are two places to eat. The bar offers a dog-friendly bistro pub style setting. The other is a more formal restaurant (with higher price because of it). Dogs are not allowed in here, but as the pub side is so good anyway, it isn't really a let down.

This inn is placed in such an idyllic location, with some great walks through the Trough of Bowland, that it is a great place to stay.

The pub closes mid-afternoon and reopens again in the evening. Check with them for the latest opening hours.
