The Gibbon Bridge Hotel is 15 miles from the heathery moors of the Forest of Bowland in Lancashire which is fast becoming a foodie destination.
If you arrive in the afternoon you can enjoy an afternoon in front of a roaring fire or in the new Orangery, which they say has been inspired by Kensington Palace and Kew Gardens. with the traditional finger sandwiches and freshly baked Victoria Sponge (the hotel has an on-site bakery)
Many secret traditional recipes are used which have been in the Simpson family for many years and a firm favourite of our guests is Lemon Cheese, which is served at breakfast and with afternoon teas.
It was originally the Simpson family farm and was transformed into a Hotel in 1982 by its charismatic proprietors Janet Simpson who, at 70, still makes a renowned English breakfast and runs around the narrow country lanes in her vintage sports car, a 1939 Bentley Duby.
There is also a 23 acre garden for you to walk around after your afternoon tea or dinner.
A very special place to stay for a weekend break. http://www.gibbon-bridge.co.uk/ the website pictures are stunning. Gibbon Bridge Hotel, Green Lane, Chipping, Preston, PR3 2TQ Tel No 01995 61456
