In the middle of Bolton by Bowland in the Ribble Valley, an area of outstanding beauty, stands this beautiful Grade 2 listed Inn. Closed for years, the elements have had their destructive ‘fun’ with it. The owners knew this area as they rented a holiday cottage nearby several times. When the ‘for sale’ was on the tired facade they did not hesitate, purchased this gem and started making plans to create a hotel, restaurant and bar with the intention to put the Coach & Horses back on the map in the Ribble Valley. After 9 months of intensive work, creating 7 beautiful rooms, a copper clad bar, cosy restaurant, new kitchen and beer garden they reached the end of the project and the Coach & Horses opened its doors to old and new friends. The in-house microbrewery complements the artisanal approach to restore the Coach and Horses in its old glory.

I was greeted very pleasantly on my arrival. My room (The Blue Room) was well furnished with excellent lighting. The bathroom was well fit out, but strangely there was no door to the bathroom, nor was a towel rail or bathmat supplied. The door situation...More

Nice hotel, very clean rooms all different in décor and size. Ours was very small (Blue room) with open bathroom and toilet (no door) which was fine for one night. The open toilet situation might not appeal to everyone I wouldn't have thought so might...More

Hello, Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate the time you have taken to review the Coach and Horses. Our rooms do differ greatly. The Coach is a listed building and we wanted to retain the feeling of an older coaching inn, we chose to...More

Hello Andrew, Thank you for your kind words. We do our best to keep our pricing reasonable and we cook all fresh from order, which is why we have a smaller menu. Saying this we do have a 'Specials' menu which changes daily serving the...More
