J. R. R. Tolkien worked at Stoneyhurst College during World War II and as such, you'd find it hard to not compare the Ribble Valley to Middle-earth. In the centre of this world is Hurst Green and the Shireburn Arms. Built in the 17th century as a hostelry for the weary traveller, the Shireburn Arms has kept all of its charm.

Part of the James' Places group, this multi-functional pub does it all, from weddings and functions to dog-friendly short breaks (just let them know when you're booking).

Walking along the Tolkien Trail to immerse yourself in the world of Bilbo Baggins isn't half bad, either.
