Ensconced in an 18th-century style hamlet, The Golden Plough Inn sets a high standard of refinement for those seeking a unique escape less than an hour from Philadelphia. Tucked away on farm land dating back to the 1700’s, the inn is the anchor to a bustling village center of specialty shops and restaurants known as Peddler’s Village. From brick-lined walkways to blooming seasonal flowers, Peddler’s Village offers a truly distinctive shopping experience featuring a collection of over 70 shops and 9 restaurants on 42 acres of delightfully landscaped grounds. The Golden Plough Inn’s 66 rooms are charmingly situated at various locations throughout Peddler’s Village amidst a backdrop of charming Colonial architecture.

The Golden Plough Inn offers 66 unique and spacious guest rooms exquisitely designed to provide a cozy, intimate hideaway for cherished time together. Each room is individually decorated and perfectly appointed with elegant fabrics and wall coverings, central air conditioning, cable television, desk, phone, refrigerator and private bathrooms equipped with hairdryers and luxury soaps. For families, the Lahaska Suite, an apartment size unit with a kitchen, 2 baths, fireplace and double-sized whirlpool is ideal. For those in search of romance, many rooms feature gas-lit fireplaces and double-sized whirlpools. Couples can indulge in a whirlpool bath for two, fragranced with supplied scented oils and illuminated by the glow of the fireplace. In all of the rooms, guests are welcomed with a bottle of champagne, soft beverages and a snack basket upon arrival.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of traveling is dining out and discovering entirely new tastes and wonderful regional differences in cuisine. Peddler’s Village strives to offer guests plenty of choices in their dining experience, from romantic dinners to casual, family-oriented settings; from traditional American cuisine in a Colonial-styled dining room to an afternoon snack in an old-fashioned tavern. In Colonial times, a tavern was a restaurant, bar and often guest house where local residents and travelers regularly gathered to share spirits and camaraderie. This same friendly atmosphere welcomes guests today at Hart’s Tavern, the Spotted Hog and Peddler’s Pub, just a few of Peddler’s extraordinary eating and beverage experiences. For those guests who like to mix dining and entertainment, Jenny’s Bistro offers a piano bar on weekends. The Cock ‘n Bull Restaurant offers Murder Mystery Dinners on weekends and Evenings in the Colonial Kitchen during the week. During this educational event, guests will observe the preparation of Colonial-era foods over an open hearth on antique cooking wares.

Buckscounty2The Golden Plough Inn is run by Earl Hart Jamison, a descendant of one of America’s earliest hotelier families. In 1752, Henry Jamison opened a tavern along the Buckingham Township stagecoach line, a popular route between New York and Philadelphia. In the 1770’s, the tavern was named for Revolutionary War General Nathaniel Greene, who served under George Washington. It was in this tavern during the winter of 1776 when boats were ordered down to McConkey’s Ferry where Washington made his famous crossing of the Delaware River on Christmas Day. Keeping with family tradition, Earl Hart Jamison opened the Golden Plough Inn in 1989, just a mile from the site of the General Greene Inn. In addition to its colonial history, the Golden Plough Inn at Peddler’s Village has become famous for year round events including festivals, craft competitions, culinary delights and family entertainment.
