Trying to book this property has been a complete shambles.
The TripAdvisor website clearly showed the dates that I wanted, with a price. This request was made through them and the full amount was taken out of my bank. The owner then sent a message to say that these dates were not available and suggested some different dates. On trying to book these the website informed me that these were also not available! I have now received another email informing me that that someone else has now booked the dates that I wanted having been told by the owner were available!! I will get my money returned but not apparently for a few days
Very disappointing indeed. Someone needs to get their act together!
Not a good experience from anyone!! I may think twice about using the TripAdvisor site again
We stayed in the Irishman's Tower in October 2015 as part of our wedding weekend, fantastic self-catering apartment in the incredible setting of the historic Hoghton Tower. Perfectly appointed with everything you'd need for a short break. Locally you have a few pubs within walking distance and the area itself is well located for walks and Lancashire history. Thanks to the team at HT for making our stay, and wedding, unforgettable. We'll be back!
Who wouldn't want to stay in their very own castle tower? Well fortified manor house technically but it looked like a castle tower to us. Our stay was great and well worth that bit extra for a novel weekend away. The accommodation was a mix of old and new that blended together nicely. To get in you need a massive key that gives the right impression right off. Downstairs in the tower is a living room all set up with a log fire ready to go. A small but perfectly stocked kitchen is off the living room (stocked with fresh bread, cakes, butter & jam!). Upstairs is a bed room & modern ensuite. Views down the massive drive are great. The tower is the only accommodation there that can be rented, the only other people are the owners and a trustee so very private. Easy walk to 2 pubs so no need to cook if you don't want to.
