Gibbon Bridge Hotel - Luxury Hotels in Lancashire

Located in the heart of a very special part of England. A well kept secret to many, the Forest of Bowland is an unspoilt delight with its rolling pastures, working farmland, natural habitats and dense forestry designated an area of outstanding natural beauty it certainly lives up to its classification. The AA have recently awarded it four stars.Created in 1982 by resident proprietor Janet Simpson and her late mother Margaret, the hotel buildings combine traditional rural architecture with interesting Gothic masonry rescued from a dismantled local church to create a distinctive and unique atmosphere. Thirty spacious and split-level suites offer superb accommodation furnished with charm and character with your comfort in mind. Many suites are complete with whirlpool baths, four poster, half tester or Gothic beds.
Enjoy dining at its finest in our wonderful restaurant and conservatory, dine privately in the warmth and opulence of our Orangery or eat alfresco style surrounded by 23 acres of beautiful gardens.
Rural Lancashire and the Forest of Bowland has excellent walking and cycling, and a wide variety of outdoor pursuits, historical attractions, bustling market towns and charming villages.

Afternoon Teas

The traditional afternoon tea played a major part in the story of Gibbon Bridge. Janet's dream, over 30 years ago, was to open a small cafe in which passing cyclists and walkers could enjoy a pot of tea and freshly baked scones. Now, with the Gibbon Bridge bakery and the opulent surroundings of the Orangery, Conservatory or Lounge the tempting afternoon tea menus range from a pot of tea and scones to champagne, sandwiches, scones, preserves, cream & cakes. We also have Musical afternoon teas to the accompaniment of a pianist. For full details or to book please telephone 01995 61456 (booking is essential).
