A short history of Garstang Country Hotel

Garstang Country Hotel and Golf Club was established by its family run owners in 1992 starting off as just a golf course, before this the land was used by the owners as farming land where a family of generations have grown up. Shepher's Farm started as a diary farm in the late 1600's. The farm house and buildings were made from stone gathered from Greenhalgh castle in Garstang over 300 years ago. The castle was dismantled by Oliver Cromwell's forces after a long siege. The stone was then available for anyone who could make use of it. The family built the farmhouse and farmed on the land until the 1920's when they bought the land and continued dairy farming until the building first of the golf course in 1992 and then the hotel in 1995. When the farmhouse and buildings were being dismantled every effort was kept to maintain the stone for use on the hotel building the evidence of its past is still visible. The hotel now has many special features dating back to the late 1600's including the stonework from the castle. The main feature in the reception is the fireplace whcer the stone that is in situe is from the archway above the entrance to the stables door. Some of the stonework can be seen to have some white paint, this is from the white wash that was painted on the stones to keep the rish of disease down. The pillars on the doorway leading from the reception to the downstairs function room are taken from the back door of the farmhouse. The lintel on the window sills and fireplace are reclaimed from Glasson Dock. The decision to change from Yeoman Farmers to hotel owners did not come lightly but has been a roaring sucess.

The hotel has spectacular views and lovely surroundings which make it an idyllic setting. The gardens provide a fantastic backdrop for photographs. There is a gazebo and pagoda sharing the lawn with the old trees and colourful beds on one side and the golf course, trees and daffodil maze on the other. In 2013 Garstang Country Hotel was awarded the RHS Gold Award in the North West in Bloom Large Accommodation category and has since followed this, with Silver Gilt awards.
