Flat Cap Hotels don't love just whippets. All dogs are welcome

T he quirkily named Flat Cap Hotels comprises three boutique properties located in leafy Cheshire. All three are set in Grade II listed buildings and offer cozy rooms as well as tempting menus featuring locally sourced seasonal produce. And they’re all dog-friendly to boot.

The Bridge, Prestbury

Built in 1624, this carefully restored Grade II listed property sits on the banks of the River Bollin, close to the views and walks of Alderley Edge. Featuring 24 bedrooms, The Bridge also provides a menu of hearty dishes featuring regional, seasonal ingredients.

It’s a five-minute walk from the village of Prestbury and its ancient church with vestiges of Saxon and Norman architecture.

The Courthouse, Knutsford

Originally known as “The Sessions House” and with a remarkable history dating back to the 1570s, the property was an active Crown Court until 2020. Now carefully converted into a nine-bedroom hotel, bar and restaurant, The Courthouse still retains many of its original features.

Its location in the centre of the market town of Knutsford make it a great base for shopping, wandering and trips further afield.

The Vicarage, Cranage

Located close to the River Dane, the hotel is well placed for walks in the bucolic Cheshire countryside. It has 23 individually designed bedrooms featuring large beds, roll-top baths and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Vicarage also has a purpose-built outdoor play area to keep younger guests occupied, plus a south facing terrace where parents can take a well-earned breather and down a stiff drink.
