We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2018. It must be one of the most tranquil sites we have ever stayed on. Roger and Sarah were very pleasant and helpful. There is a good bus service to Lancaster in the north and Knott End (and thence to Fleetwood and Blackpool) to the south. The buses are every 90 minutes. We had no problem accessing the Lune cycleway as pedestrians, via a rather steep railway bridge. It was not possible to get our bikes there however as the gap allowed is very small. There is a good woodland walk of around 2 miles within the hall grounds. As others mention, the Stork pub is a 30 minute walk away and you can catch the bus back if you get the timing right. 1015 am, then every 90 minutes until 7pm. Walking back on the road is not recommended, especially after dark, as there is no footpath. Nice bar at the golf club and a pleasant garden centre are additional attractions.
