Since it opened in 1982, Gibbon Bridge, near Chipping in the heart of the Forest Of Bowland, has built a reputation as one of the county's most cherished four-star country hotels. It has picked up numerous awards, including year after year the North West in Bloom award for the gardens where a hot sandwich lunch menu is available. If you're in a group, one of the highlights of any spring or summer visit has to be an al fresco meal in one of three new thatched pergolas which can accommodate parties from 8 to 22 people. The main restaurant has wonderful views out over the gardens to the Longridge fells beyond and is open daily to non-residents for lunch and dinner and the new Victorian-styled Orangery can be used as an indoor venue for civil wedding ceremonies, to complement the existing outdoor bandstand, as wells as for breakfasts, afternoon tea and as a luxurious private dining setting. Menus are crafted around local, seasonal produce and Gibbon Bridge has its own bakery and kitchen garden. To really make the most of the Gibbon Bridge experience, stay over in one of 29 individually designed rooms and suites. Book your room online
