The 4-star Barton Grange, one of Preston’s most prestigious hotels and best-kept secret, is proud to announce its involvement with the UK Corporate Games as the Official Headquarters Hotel.
Whether it’s for business or pleasure, your stay at The Barton Grange Hotel will certainly be memorable. Guests return again and again to this family run hotel, drawn by an irresistible blend of warmth, professionalism, humour and first-rate service. Recent refurbishments have created a stylish, contemporary look for the Hotel which nevertheless retains all the traditional charm of the original manor house. Bedrooms are beautifully decorated with superb bathrooms.
Built in 1900 as a country residence, the hotel has a distinguished history and offers its guests a stylish yet contemporary alternative to traditional hotel accommodation. In 1940 the house was requisitioned by the War Office as a mess for officers of the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force. In 1951 it opened as a Bed and Breakfast with only 6 bedrooms, but after several additions and refurbishments as a result of its popularity, it stands proud with 51 bedrooms, a leisure centre, conference and banqueting facilities for up to 300 people and its own unique bistro.
Perhaps the most enchanting part of the hotel however is its Walled Garden Bistro. A firm favourite amongst the Games staff in our office, the Walled Garden Bistro has been faithfully recreated from plans dating back to 1901 and its mellow brick walls make it a very relaxing place to eat and drink after a hard day of sport.
The Games staff are delighted to welcome the Barton Grange Hotel as their Official Hotel. We are delighted to add that the team at the hotel also plan to enter this year’s Games – so watch out for them across the Games weekend!
The Barton Grange hotel is just minutes from the M6 and with masses of free parking, getting there is easy and hassle free.

Did You Know…?
Shortly after the Barton Grange Hotel first opened in 1951, its proprietor and grounds man started a Landscaping company, which grew to become an established wholesale plant growing division and garden centre, located in the hotel grounds. Much later in 2008, the gardening business outgrew its site and moved 2 miles down the road into the village of Brock, now occupying a 50 acre site, including a farm shop and narrow boat marina as well as Willows Restaurant and The Riverside Café.
If ever a garden centre had the ‘wow factor’, then the gorgeous Barton Grange Garden Centre is it!
