Best Western Premier Collection

Explore Hotel

A traditional country hotel near Burnley.

The Best Western Higher Trapp Country House Hotel is situated near Burnley, on the enchanting Pendle hillside. That means you can enjoy stunning panoramic views over the Lancashire countryside, every day of your stay!

The hill itself provides spectacular views north west to the Forest of Bowland and west over the Fylde Plain to the Irish Sea. For history-seekers, there's also evidence of a Bronze Age burial site on top of Pendle Hill! Pendle Hill is ideal for walking on or around, with our delightful hotel providing the perfect base for hiking holidays. The Pendle Way, a well sign-posted 45 mile circular route, is particularly popular amongst our guests. The area is characterised by windswept moorland, rocky outcrops, deep valleys and rolling fields, creating one of the most enchanting and picturesque areas of Lancashire's Hill Country!

Talking of enchantment, Pendle itself is infamously known for the 17th Century trial of the Pendle Witches; our staff will be happy to tell you more about the history of Demdyke and Co.!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. I am pleased we were able to offer a comfortable stay during a distressing time. Thank you for your comments about the staff and facilities, I will pass your feedback onto all the team. I am sorry you were overcharged for your breakfasts, there is no reason we could not have processed the refund at checkout time. Please contact me direct on jamie@lavenderhotels.co.uk to organise a refund for this. I have passed your feedback to maintenance regarding the shower in your room. We hope you will return to the hotel and look forward to welcoming you back. Best Wishes Jamie Proctor General Manager
