About Stirk House

With ivy clad walls standing for nearly 400 years and a crackling fireplace welcoming guests since 1933, Stirk House offers contemporary luxury in truly historic surroundings. Family owned and run, we are passionate about supporting the local community, protecting our stunning surroundings and exceeding customer expectations with little added touches of luxury.


We’ve been the proud recipients of various awards, celebrating many different aspects of the hotel, from the Lancashire Tourism ‘Small Hotel of the Year’ to the Enjoy England Breakfast Award and the Taste Lancashire award for our outstanding food.
