Best Western Garstang Country Hotel & Golf Club.

Pay, play and stay in a wonderful countryside setting.

The Best Western Garstang Country Hotel and Golf Club wont just give you easy access to Preston, it'll put you within putting distance of a fantastic 18 hole parkland golf course too!

In addition to well-kept fairways and greens, you'll also have the luxury of great views across the surrounding Lancashire countryside. Within walking distance of Garstang itself, you'll have the chance to enjoy walks without the clubs too, thanks to pleasant riverside routes and the nearby Beacon Fell.

The history of the Best Western Garstang Country Hotel & Golf Club itself is a fascinating one, beginning life as farming land in the 1600s and evolving first into a golf course and now, over 400 years later, a wonderful hotel made in part from bricks salvaged from the Greenhalgh Castle after Oliver Cromwell's forces dismantled it following a siege. Our staff will be delighted to delve further into the past!

Thank you for your comments. I am unsure what is meant by renovation and hope they will contact me to clarify. The hotel structure is only 20 years old and in fantstic condition also all the carpets and furniture have been replaced in the last 3 years. I am sorry the room felt dark, I'm sure the weather didnt help and may be not what you are accustomed to in Southern France but hope you will visit again and bring some sunshine with you. Kind regards Chris
