“Situated on Lancashire’s Fylde Coast on the River Wyre, The Cartford Inn, is a 14-bedroom hotel-cum-restaurant, run by welcoming Julie and Patrick. Originally a 17th century coaching inn, The Cartford blends traditional features with more contemporary living. The recently refurbished rooms range from a spectacular penthouse suite with roof-top terrace and roll-top bath, to elegant doubles and family or disabled options. All highlight the owners’ superb attention to detail, whether it’s the French-style furniture, the claw-footed bath tub or the exquisite wallpapers. Cosy in winter with an open wood fire and games room, there’s also a beer garden for when the weather brightens up. The food’s excellent too, whether it’s a meal in the restaurant or a sandwich in the sitting room.”

“The Cartford Inn is a 17th century coaching inn nestling on the banks of the River Wyre on Lancashire’s Fylde Coast. Newly refurbished in 2007 the “Cartford” combines traditional features with contemporary style.
As a result of extensive refurbishment we have achieved a unique ambience where a warm welcome is always assured.
An open wood fire welcomes guests in the bar lounge area where you will find several cosy corners where guests can enjoy a quiet drink. Food, from an informal snack to a three-course meal, is served throughout the lounge, alcoves and games room (where dominos, cards, chess, backgammon and other board games are available). Alternatively the same menu is available in our first floor restaurant “Mushrooms” for those seeking a more traditional dining experience.
We have also created a charming beer garden overlooking the river Wyre with stunning views of the surrounding countryside with Beacon Fell and the Trough of Bowland as a backdrop.”
