The Coach and Horses, Bolton-by-Bowland, Lancashire: hotel review
This revamped pub in a ridiculously pretty Ribble Valley village not only does food and bedrooms extremely well – it’s a proper boozer, too
Like most northern European cities, Manchester is amazing up to 24C. But in a heatwave, parched Mancs start asking: whose idea was it to build all these high-rise glass boxes, rather than green space and cycle lanes? Dedicated city-dwellers begin to dream of escaping into the city’s rural hinterland. Luckily, on a muggy, sticky afternoon in July, I was on the 16.35 from Victoria to Clitheroe, gateway to the Ribble Valley.
