Why We Love This Hotel

  • Higher Trapp Hotel has panoramic views of the Lancashire countryside from its elevated position within four acres of terraced gardens in the Pendle Valley.
  • The location is excellent for walkers. Hike the Pendle Way footpath, beginning in Barley, which is less than 15 minutes' drive away. You'll discover landscapes ranging from moorland to meadow, and visit villages and hamlets associated with the 17th-century Pendle Witch trials, along the way.
  • Follow the 5.5-mile Tolkien Trail, starting at Hurst Green (around 25 minutes' walk from the hotel). This circular route through the Ribble Valley passes through landscapes that inspired the author while writing The Lord of the Rings.
  • Gawthorpe Hall, an Elizabethan country house and National Trust property, is around 10 minutes' drive from the hotel. Stroll through the gardens, which have views over the River Calder and visit the Gawthorpe Textile Collection.
  • The hotel has a conservatory and a terrace where you can enjoy country vistas over a drink at the end of a day's sightseeing. Fitzy's Bar & Restaurant also has scenic views from its floor-to-ceiling windows.

Evening meal very good staff very friendly. The rooms are clean not the most modern but was good enough for our one night stay. Room was a little bit warm even with the radiator off but still managed a good night's sleep.

We managed to get a superior room upgrade on arrival at a good extra price. Or room was nice and clean and had a lovely en suite and comfy four poster bed. All the staff were were excellent and couldn't do enough for us. The food was very good and there was a good choice from the menu. We had excellent sunny weather which allowed us to sit out on the terrace which was ideal as there are limited interesting places to visit in the area. All in all we enjoyed our couple of days away.

Exceptional hotel. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean, large, warm with tea & coffee and biscuits. The food n the bar/restaurant was excellent, as was the breakfast. Higher Trapp is a one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in.

I visited with my friend & we both enjoyed our stay in this lovely quiet location. The evening meal & breakfast was good with good choices. The room was warm & comfortable. Visited Clithero & Whaley which were near but there are many places to visit.

Wife has limited mobility, subsequently found the 28 steps to the room floor very arduous. Not possible for her to access the shower in the bath.
