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.!
