Historic Lancashire country manor stay, in a traditional room with breakfast, welcome prosecco and dinner credit

Set amid 17 acres of private grounds surrounded by the lovely Lancashire countryside, Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa bursts with character – its turrets and crenellated walls giving it the air of a country castle rather than manor house. With an illustrious history dating back a staggering 700 years, here you can soak up tales of bygone days, as well as explore the nearby Forest of Bowland – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa also offers easy access to Blackburn and Manchester, making it a great rural option away from the city bustle.

Back at base you can enjoy recreation of a somewhat different kind with a round of golf on the hotel’s very own course or wind things down with a sojourn in the hotel’s excellent spa, which houses an indoor swimming pool and offers an extensive treatment menu. On the menu elsewhere, in Cameo restaurant you can expect a smattering of locally sourced farm produce, and maybe even some of Lancashire’s famous sausages on your breakfast plate.

Good to know

A dinner allowance of up to £22 per person per night is included as part of this offer. Ample complimentary parking is available on site. Please note the hotel is popular with wedding parties, so it may be rather lively at busy times of year.


Rooms are styled in a traditional way, with carpeted floors, wooden furniture and cosy armchairs. Upgrade to an Executive room for additional space to relax in.

The hotel sits in 17 acres of private grounds in Clayton Le Moors just outside the city of Blackburn in Lancashire. Wander the many footpaths through the Forest of Bowland – a dramatic landscape of high and mighty gritstone fells, deep valleys and peat moorland. Football fans can catch a match at Blackburn Rovers’ ground, a short drive from the hotel. Blackburn city centre can be reached by car in ten minutes via the M65, while Manchester’s excellent shopping and nightlife is only 20 miles away.
