The Assheton Arms

Bowland Inns & Hotels, the parent company behind Bowland Brewery & the James’ Places collection of hotels, inns and restaurants is pleased to announce that it has successfully reached a lease agreement with the Trustees of the Downham Estate. This iconic Lancashire country inn is set to re-open its doors under new ownership in February 2023.

James Warburton, the Bowland Inns & Hotels Owner and Chairman, explains: “We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have secured the Assheton Arms and will be bringing it into our family of local hotels and Inns. As a big admirer and customer of this wonderful pub, and past resident of Downham itself I know just how fond of the pub people are.”

“Thanks to the way Downham Estate manages its properties, the eighteen months closure has been kind to The Assheton Arms. We just need a few weeks to warm the building through, refresh one or two things and we will be on our way. February 2023 can’t come soon enough.”

Said the Hon Ralph Assheton: “The business lease of the Assheton Arms came back into the ownership of Downham Estate at the beginning of this year. Since then, we have taken the opportunity to carry out a number of essential repairs to the main building and its 12 letting rooms, as well as redecorating the exterior and sprucing up the garden areas.”

“Our search to find the best way forward for the Assheton Arms as a business, a sustainable part of Downham Estate and a valued village and wider community hub has resulted in the lease being awarded to Bowland Inns & Hotels.  We couldn’t be more delighted and are confident that, with this local company’s excellent reputation and track record, the Assheton Arms will become, once again, a bit of a draw and one of the Ribble Valley’s major tourism assets.”  

 

Bookings are now being from February 2023 onwards. To enquire or make a booking, please email [email protected] or call 01200 407 150.
