the cartford inn

Multi award-winning pub, restaurant and boutique hotel.


The Cartford Inn, originally a 17th century coaching inn located at the historic crossing of the River Wyre, is in the heart of rural Lancashire.  The location boasts enviable views of the surrounding countryside, looking across to the quietly beautiful Bowland fells.

Arriving at the inn, you are greeted with local hospitality and the warmth of an open fire. Here you can enjoy some of the best food and drink the region has to offer in one of their uniquely charming, individually furnished dining areas. The bar alcoves and fireside areas allow for relaxed, informal dining experiences, whilst their River Lounge restaurant boasts panoramic riverscape views. On Summer evenings these views can be enjoyed whilst eating or drinking on their newly landscaped al-fresco dining terrace.

Each of their fifteen luxury bedrooms, including the penthouse suite, is individually decorated and furnished with the same style and attention to detail as the rest of the inn. You can wake up to stunning views overlooking the river and enjoy an award-winning breakfast.

Although tucked away in the peaceful Lancashire countryside, they are only a few miles from many local places of interest. Close by are the towns of Blackpool, Cleveleys, Rossall and Garstang. The nearest train station, at Poulton-le-Fylde, is a short drive away and we are easily reached from the M6 and the M55. The historic city of Lancaster and its university are accessed by the main road North and the universities of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) and Myerscough are also nearby. They are ideally located for visiting Royal Lytham Golf Club, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, The Winter Gardens and The Grand Theatre.
