Traveling with a Child

Some bed & breakfasts discourage kids, and some guests are looking specifically to be away from children. As parents, we know what it is like to travel as a family.  And, we have certain accommodations that work great for children, even a well behaved pet.  So, bring your family and let us help you all relax and enjoy. Croquet, anybody? 

Please note that all our inn guests and in-residence staff are entitled to the 'quiet enjoyment' of our historic inn.  If your child sleeps through the night and respects antiques, fine linens and other things delicate, then do consider the following sampling of accommodations.

If you are thinking of bringing a pet, please click here.

Our family lives in a separate house on the Inn grounds.  Our daughter Jessica gladly shares her movies and some toys.

Book now (Accommodations) for the www.NewHopeAutoShow.com which is held in the fields directly opposite our Inn! Since 1957, and always the second weekend in August, over 800 of the world's finest antique and classic cars have met at this Show in New Hope. With music, art, crafts and lots of great food and special events at the Show and also throughout New Hope, it's a weekend for the entire family.

Family Rated

All three properties in the Wedgwood Collection of Historic Inns have been independently reviewed and rated.  We are proud of the accolades by leading travel experts.  Rated "Excellent" by Fodor's Guide, Mobil Travel Guide and the Bucks Country Bed & Breakfast Association

Perhaps the best accolade comes from the families who tell of staying with us when they were children themselves.

This is my 10th entry into your Guest Room Diary.  I first stayed with you in 1985 with my then 10-year-old daughter Jane.  You had just opened Umpleby House and your Jasper was just a puppy.  Jane & Jasper grew up together over the next 15 years…” 

Then Jane and Steven honeymooned here in 1999…“and now I am returning with my two year old granddaughter to play with Tootsie, your new lab puppy.  A third generation Connor girl at the Inn!  Thank you for sharing your loving Inn with my family….”---Genna, Baltimore MD
