About the Great Inns of Britian
Hello – I’m Simon Heaton, the owner of Shibden Mill Inn near Halifax in West Yorkshire – I’m also proud to be the Chairman of The Great Inns of Britain, a collection of some of Britain’s finest traditional inns.
Any stay with us should be memorable, because the Great inns are a truly unique experience.
These are places with rich histories, charismatic owners and devoted regulars.
Many of the innkeepers started out in very different professions, mostly on the other side of the bar! So they love to share stories and get to know their guests.
You’ll find that our rooms tend to have names rather than numbers, because they’re all unique as well. And whilst your room might have a four poster bed, antique furniture and traditional fabrics, it might just as easily be a stylish suite with all mod cons – but whichever you choose, your comfort is guaranteed.
Each of the Great Inns is totally individual. Some are contemporary and chic, others bursting with traditional character. But they are all obsessed with quality.
