    BEST WESTERN Garstang Country Hotel & Golf ClubBest Western Garstang Country Hotel & Golf Club, BowgreaveEnjoy the benefits of our country hotel in the heart of Lancashire which is small enough to care but large enough to meet your expectations. Our guests can enjoy all the Northwest has to offer, yet still enjoy the feeling of being away from it all.

    Best Western Garstang Country Hotel & Golf Club - Restaurant, BowgreaveProvides excellent cuisine under the watchful eyes of the executive chef, freshly prepared with local produce and complimented by an extensive list of wines.
