Our Story

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.

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.


The owners and staff sincerely hope that their guests will appreciate the efforts and have the same warm feelings whether they stay for a drink, a good night’s rest or a delicious meal.

The Coach & Horses, a traditional Coaching Inn with seven beautifully created bedrooms, set in the idyllic village of Bolton by Bowland in the heart of the Ribble Valley.

Each of the bedrooms is unique, decorated in a style befitting a traditional Coaching Inn. Ideas, based on impressions of years of visits to many boutique hotels worldwide, have been used to create a memorable experience.
