Family Travel at the Wedgwood

Family Rated

Perhaps the best accolades come from guests who tell us
 their fond memories of staying at the Inn when they were a child.


The 1870 Wedgwood Bed and Breakfast Inn has successfully been hosting small families since 1982. 

“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

Some bed & breakfasts discourage kids, and some guests are looking for a quiet getaway.  As parents, we know what it is like to travel as a family.  We pride ourselves in accomplishing a pleasant experience for both types of travelers because we have specialized, but limited accommodations that work great for a family with a child.  The Inn's park-like setting and close proximity to town with all its child-friendly attractions make New Hope's 1870 Wedgwood Inn the ideal destination for you and your child.  

So, if your child sleeps through the night, appreciates fine linens, bedspreads and antiques too, then let us help you all relax and enjoy your visit to Bucks County. 

Your Hosts, Carl and Dinie, live in a separate house on the Inn grounds. Their daughter Jessica gladly shares her movies and some of her toys.  Sometimes she will even show guest children her secret tree house.
