I visited Scorton couple weeks ago with a group of friends and I stayed at this lovely hotel. Not just the village is pretty and charming but this hotel is the icing on the cake. I absolutely loved it. The rooms are clean and spacious and the food is outstanding with great value for money. I definitely will visit again.

I stayed at the priory during a weekend retreat (there was 10 of us in total). Since my first contact with the priory, about the retreat and our requirements, I was extremely impressed. They managed to accommodate every request for 10 people all arriving at different times, including menu preferences for all of us. The hotel and the village exceeded...

For somewhere that has no competition at all in Scorton this is a great place to stop. Room spacious and clean. Food good value and tasty. Staff cannot do enough to make you welcome. We are not walkers but from what we could see they do a special soup, sandwich and coffee deal for those on a round trip.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Priory Scorton, The Forest of Bowland.The Priory built in the early 17th century was originally a Christian place of worship, set in the idyllic ancient hunting grounds of The Forest of Bowland, which was the hunting playground for Nobility and aristocracy alike, and to this day it still is, the area is divided into large estates owned by The Queen, The Duke of Westminster and alike. During the time of The Reformation The Priory was paid a visit from Olivers Army (Cromwell) and was duly left in peace, whist other local establishments faired far worse, the castle at Garstang was besieged, sacked and ordered to be dismantled, so even in those times The Priory was doing something right.Time moved on and so did The Priory changing from a Chapel to a Blacksmiths, a Catholic boys school, a Post Office and private residence,The Priory Inn now offers its own bakery and spacious, warmly furnished rooms. Fresh, homemade food is served, all food is locally sauced using Honeywell meats, Dewlay cheeses, Pilling potatoes to name but a few All bedrooms have light decor and crisp furnishings, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities; each room has a modern private bathroom with toiletries provided.
