The Stork Hotel exudes quality, friendly atmosphere and a lengthy and intriguing history.
Once a Cromwellian gaol, The Stork Hotel has an extensive and intriguing history.
What is now the hotel began its life as a humble farm house back in 1718. Being on the main road from Lancaster to Liverpool made it ideal as a Toll Tower for travellers along the way. It has since been used as an inn, a hotel, and as the aforementioned gaol by Cromwell's troops during the English Civil War. It is believed that Cromwell stayed at the premises on numerous occasions.
The original building was extended in 1752 to, more or less, what you see today.
Set amongst idyllic, rural surroundings, the Stork Hotel provides the perfect spot to unwind, whether on a business trip or visiting the local area.
Visiting Liverpool, Manchester, Wigan or any of the many nearby locations? Nothing could be more welcome than a stop over at a bed and breakfast and guest house of such quality and local history.
