Lose Hill and Win Hill

Our hotel gets its name from Lose Hill, the hill upon which we are based. At the bottom of the valley the land then rises up again to form Win Hill.

To uncover the reason for the two names, it's necessary to go back into the Saxon period of the 650s AD when the Kings of Mercia and Wessex on Losehill, and the King of Northumbria on Win Hill fought a great battle. Northumbria won hence the name Win Hill and Wessex and Mercia lost giving us the name Lose Hill and the name of the hotel.
