James' Places – Cool Places to Stay in the UK

James' Places

Rewind to 1996, and a former Methodist Chapel in Clitheroe was lovingly refurbished into The Emporium, a fantastic three-storey brasserie, pizzeria, wine bar and coffee shop. And so James' Places began, a hospitality business centring on the Ribble Valley in Lancashire, the Yorkshire Dales and the South Lakes. Over the years, the team has added a number of outstanding properties to the collection, spanning first-rate restaurants, pubs with boutique rooms, upscale hotels, and wow-factor wedding venues.

No two places are alike, but they all share several things in common: a welcoming atmosphere, top-notch service, and tasty food. They've even added a few holiday cottages to the growing portfolio, if self-catering in style is more your thing. Together with James' Places, we've chosen six superb properties to focus on: a pub with rooms in a picture-perfect setting, a historic manor house estate, a countryside watering hole with individually designed bedrooms upstairs, a contemporary hotel in a restored mill, a characterful coaching inn in the heart of Lancashire walking territory, and a luxurious country house hotel. Whether you're searching for a family-friendly getaway, a romantic retreat, somewhere for a get-together with friends or a dog-friendly gastropub with rooms, look no further than James' Places.
