Self-contained & fully modernized, our Lancaster city-centre flat is cosy, quirky & comfortable. You can enjoy sitting at your window looking out on charming buildings & cobbled streets, with all the modern comforts you would want from a home-from-home. This top-floor flat provides spacious accommodation for 2-3 (main bedroom with double bed, a second bedroom with a single, adult sized, but slightly narrowed bed to fit in this diamond shaped room!) There is a separate, fully equipped breakfasting kitchen, while the lounge has ample seating & dining space for up to four. Excellent restaurants, markets & bars abound, & Lancaster boasts a vibrant theatre & music scene.

No car? No problem! We're a 5min stroll from the train or bus.

Lancaster is an ideal base for really getting to know the North-West of England. The immediate area is very beautiful, with forests, moorland, hills and coast accessed in minutes by car, bus, and rail. Having large universties, historic Georgian architecture, beautiful parkland, and vibrant local arts scene, Lancaster has a lot to keep you busy! If that's not enough, the Lake District is half an hour away, there are several country houses and historic sites to visit, and Manchester only an hour by car or rail if you're missing the big city.

The flat is perfectly situated for all amenities - step outside and you're right by Lancaster Castle! Fashionable cafes, restaurants, and bars are minutes' walk away, and the twice-weekly Farmers' Market a great place to shop. There are plenty of supermarkets also in close walking distance. The Dukes Theatre, The Grand Theatre, the Gregson Community Arts Centre and the Nuffield Theatre (at the University) all offer excellent cultural events and activities.

Want to stay for more than three nights, but less than a week? We can help by applying a discount to our base price making a stays of four to six nights cost £60/night (for 1-2 persons, before fees). To benefit from these prices, please send an enquiry before booking so I can send you a discounted quote. Sorry, we can't discount over Christmas/New Year.

Northern England region

Lancaster is an ideal base for really getting to know the North-West of England. The immediate area is very beautiful, with forests, moorland, hills and coast accessed in minutes by car, bus, and rail. Having large universties, historic Georgian architecture, beautiful parkland, and vibrant local arts scene, Lancaster has a lot to keep you busy!

The Dukes Theatre has a year-round programme of plays, music, comedy, dance and film as well as its renowned promenade play up at Williamsons Park each summer. The two other theatres offer contrasting programmes - traditional in the beautifully restored Victorian Grand Theatre, and modern and adventurous music and performance at the Nuffield Theatre at the University campus. There are several music festivals catering for different tastes, spectacular fireworks and a winter celebration of light (see 'Light-up Lancaster'!) and an annual Litfest. You'll find a range of music venues that showcase local talent and host visiting musicians.

To live like a local, don't miss visiting the Gregson Community Arts Centre to stay abreast of what's happening around town, enjoy good food and cafe drinks as well as catching the friendly vibe in the Gregson bar. There's a wealth of activities there that take place in the various large rooms in the centre.

Lancaster has its famous Castle which is open for visitors and also hosts spectacular events, dramatic productions, and family activities. It is becoming an increasingly popular venue, and is developing its resources. It has even been the backdrop to some film work by the famous Ridley Scott!

People wanting somewhere to explore the southern Lake District - without paying the huge prices associated with staying in the heart of the Lakes area - would be well placed in Lancaster, and you can also access the lesser known, yet superbly beautiful, areas around the Forest of Bowland, Silverdale, and charming historic market towns such as Kirkby Lonsdale. As if this wasn't enough, there's the sea air, and spectacular views across Morecambe Bay, and if you want the amenities and bustle of the big city, Manchester is only an hour away.

Well placed and well connected, Lancaster is just off the M6, on the main train line from London to Edinburgh or Glasgow, and our flat is just minutes from both the bus and railway stations.


Lancaster is easily accessed from the North or South from the M6 (junction 33 or 34);

Our apartment is a five minute walk from either Lancaster train station, or from the bus station. There are excellent and regular rail connections - to/from South from London (3 hours) Manchester/Manchester Airport (1 hour) and North to/from Carlisle (1 hour) Edinburgh and Glasgow (2 hours)

There is nearby car parking (paying) - some long term, and some metered street parking.
