Welcome to The Stork Country Inn
The Stork has been delivering a warm welcome to travellers for nearly 400 years.
Much may have changed in the meantime, but this coaching inn – that dates from the 1660s – at Conder Green, near Lancaster, still prides itself on the timeless tradition of offering all you might expect from a classic English pub, complete with its low-beamed ceiling.
Besides good food and excellent beers and wines nowadays that extends to seven elegantly-decorated en-suite bedrooms, all with all the facilities demanded of a modern hotel room.
There are single, double, twin and family rooms, each with tea & coffee making facilities, hairdryers and televisions and baby cots can also be provided.
The Stork is a whitewashed landmark building on the outskirts of Lancaster that could be a world away from the historic city but has also seen its own share of local history.
It’s at the heart of the ancient hamlet of Conder Green which sits besides the rivers Conder and Lune. Within a short walk you can stroll alongside the branch of the Lancaster Canal that leads towards the small historic port of Glasson Dock, once the largest port in the region but which nowadays still handles cargo. Another longer riverside walk – or cycle ride – along a disused railway line leads into Lancaster itself, a city rich in legend and heritage and dominated by a centuries-old castle and abbey.
And after a day, or days, spent exploring all that this unique corner of Lancashire has to offer what better way than to curl up in the warm embrace of the Stork, with its roaring log fires in midwinter. The latter is set amidst beautiful gardens and near a large children’s play area.
