Steeped in heritage and set within the beautiful village of Scorton - The Gateway to the Trough of Bowland, The Priory nestles in an area officially recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (A.O.N.B ). From Natural England: 'Bowland's ecological features make it a nationally important area for nature conservation and 13 per cent is designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest. The moors are a major breeding ground for upland birds and the major part of the Bowland Fells is designated as a Special Protection Area under the European Birds Directive. The lowlands contain important ancient woodland habitat'.
With parts of the building dating back to 1650, The Priory weathered the storm of the reformation to become a blacksmiths, boys school and more recently a country inn before being transformed into the boutique hotel, cafe bar and restaurant it is today. Local legend has it that Cromwell's soldiers stayed at The Priory and were so pleased with the Hospitality that they left without harming the Priest, but went on to destroy Greenhalgh Castle in the nearby market town of Garstang.
