Hi

you want coaching inns near Oxford ?
Woodstock was the first change of horses on the way North.

The Feathers is good.

Equally, try The Jersey Arms or Weston Manor going East.

Bob,
It sounds like you could be trying to arrange, the same as my wife are planning to do in September. We are using mainly B&Bs, but wanted to stay in something a little bit different, in York. Although we have not stayed in the following establishment, we are booked for four nights in September.

Golden Fleece Coaching Inn, 16 Pavement, York. Phone: +44 (0)1904 625171. Fax: +44(0)1904 675315, Manager Andy Yuill. Email: [email protected]. The Golden Fleece is an independently owned hotel, bar and restaurant, located in the centre of historic York. Directly opposite the world famous Shambles, they are the oldest (and most haunted) licensed premises in the city. They maintain that they are the first non smoking bar in York. The owners also claim that the hotel is located in a 500 year old wooden-framed building without foundations, which means wonky walls, sloping floors, odd-shaped doorways and things that go bump in the night! Four rooms - 2 twin, 1 double and 1 suite. Rates - twin from £40, double £50 and suite £60. All rates per person per night. 25% discount on 4 nights or more. Limited private garaging is available. Website: www.fibbers.co.uk/goldenfleece/

This was written and sent to me from a person that had previously stayed there.

We have had several emails from Andy and I must say that he has been most helpful with everything that we asked. Andy told us that they have 5 resident ghosts and that they have been seen and even photographed by guests of the hotel. We are booked into the twin room where the ghost of 'Lady Peckett' has been seen quite often.
If you send an email I could forward the initial email that was sent to us by Andy.

Bob,

Not a coaching inn, but if the heart of the Yorkshire Dales is on your itenerary take a look at:

http://www.rookhurst.co.uk/

Wonderful place on the Pennine Way (walking pathway) in the tiny village of Gayle, near the "thriving metropolis" of Hawes ;-).

Just a thought: sometimes old coaching inns are now located adjacent to what are now busy roads....
