We visited the Craven Heifer at Christmas with family. I had never been before, but it was beautifully decorated, and the staff were very welcoming. As a gin drinker, I was able to try a gin I'd never heard of! The food far exceeded my expectations. Portion sizes were perfect for me (although a little on the small side for...

There was a warm and welcoming feel from the moment I arrived and throughout my stay. I chose The Craven Heifer as an ideal base for a two-night Christmas break while visiting family close by. The room and en suite facilities were exceptionally clean and well cared for and with a lovely cosy bed, a good night's sleep was guaranteed....

Nice little place with an extra block of rooms out the back, fairly recently (and well) modernised. Classic Lancashire breakfast and a decent evening menu meal, albeit with limited choice. This only failed "Very Good" with me due to the room size I had in the main building. It was meant to be a double room for single occupany but...

Stayed overnight on route to home. Although the bed was very comfy, the room was in great need of updating and refurbishment, with damp on the bathroom wall, however the staff are excellent. Breakfast consists of a buffet table, cereal, toast and crumpets. Very short breakfast time, sunday was 8-9, with a leaving time of 10, bit short for a...
