About the location


Garstang 3.6 miles; Lancaster 8.5 miles; Morecambe 15 miles.

Scorton is a village in Nether Wyresdale, on the very edge of the Forest of Bowland AONB. Although it was originally developed around the cotton mill and railway in the 19th Century, today it is most popular with walkers and cyclists seeking refreshment in one of its licensed restaurants. The village also hosts regular Food & Gift Fairs, where you can browse a delightful selection of stalls selling cheese, preserves, jewellery and crafts, to name but a few. Nicky Nook, its best known landmark, sits at the back of the village and, as it is only a short distance from the A6, the village is a wonderful starting point for exploring Lancashire. There are fishing opportunities nearby on the River Wyre, Wyreside Lake and Cleveley Mere. A few miles up the road is Garstang, famous for declaring itself as the world’s first Fairtrade town and well-loved for its delicious local produce and regular street markets. There is so much to keep you occupied in this area; the beautiful Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve, a day at Morecambe Bay or Blackpool, along with the popular towns of Lancaster, Kirkby Lonsdale and even Kendal and Windermere, easily reached in the car. With beautiful surroundings and an abundance of natural attractions, it is great for families, couples and friends.
