Lancashire Manor is a historical building for the area, parts of the hotel date back to ancient times when Lathom House, just a few miles away, was the home of the 7th Earl of Derby. It was the last Royal stronghold of the King of England that stood between Oliver Cromwell and his parliamentary army during the Civil War of 1642 – 46. Following the second siege the fortress Lathom House finally fell and on the order of parliament levelled to the ground. It is believed that the imposing stone entrance gate pillars and much of the stone used in the Great Hall were part of Lathom House. The main stone building dates back to 1770 and is now a grade II listed building, it was part of Higher Balcony Farm one of the many ancient farms all of which are believed to originate from the estate of the Church and Priory of Burscough which was the largest and wealthiest Priory in northern England. 

The original Balcony Farm which you are still able to see at the current centre of the hotel changed its' name at some point to the Belle Coney and is now a name given to one of the suites. The original Balcony Farm you are able to see the current centre of the hotel and the gate posts (now relocated). The name Balcony changed at some time to Belle Coney, a name given to one of our suites. In 1926 Mr George Alker leased and subsequently purchased the farm from Peter Dickinson who was the previous Priory tenant. In 1964 the Labour government of Harold Wilson created the “New Towns Commission” to create new and better housing outside Britain’s main cities. For Liverpool, 6000 acres and over 50 farms including Balcony Farm were compulsory purchased between Skelmersdale and Upholland creating “New Skelmersdale”. 

At the time the Alker family sold the property to Mr Laurence Baxter who regenerated the Great Hall and farm buildings into a wedding venue and 14-bedroom hotel. A major £2m renovation in 2010 and a further £1million extension in 2015, has established Best Western Lancashire Manor as a fabulous asset to the area, combining contemporary design with the old stone grade II listed building. Kings, Earls, ladies and gentlemen have passed through the gates for hundreds of years.
