Description from owner

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. Excellent restaurants, markets & bars abound, & Lancaster boasts a vibrant theatre & music scene.

We regret we cannot accommodate smokers; this property best suits singles, couples or friends looking for a quiet and restful break. We will accept well-behaved children over eight years old.

When considering suitability, please note that access to the flat is via a steep cobbled path, or, alternatively across uneven stepped paving

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 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.

IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO NOTE: please ensure you have read ALL details below so that you can be confident our place will be a 'good fit' for your stay:

WiFi - our flat at Nip Hill is in a BT Openzone/BT Fon public hotspot, so can be accessed as part of your BT contract ONLY IF YOU HAVE ONE or an alternative contract (that links up with BT). If you don't have a BT account, YOU CAN BUY AD-HOC ACCESS by the day/hour/week/month as required.

There is no maid service, but we will replace linens during stays >1 week.

HOUSE RULES:

We are STRICTLY NON-SMOKING. This is a requirement of our insurance, so we host only non-smokers.

The use of candles is strictly prohibited and you may not use them in any part of the property.

We are the top flat (of three) in a converted building, with shared access across a small courtyard; relationships with our neighbours below, and across the way really matter - we expect guests to look after our property, and our standing with our neighbours, by being peaceful, polite and tidy. If you're looking to host a party, this is not the right place.

Visitors to the property must be only those discussed and agreed with us in advance.

We need to know who is staying at our flat so please provide full names of people travelling with you before agreeing the booking; please note - only those identified in this prior agreement are entitled to stay overnight.

For your comfort and hygeine, and to reduce noise for our neighbours below (as well as to protect our pale coloured carpets!), we require you to remove outdoor shoes before entering (to be left on the outside landing) - so do pack your slippers, or you can borrow some slipper-socks to use during your stay!

Hair dyes ruin the white grout in our tiled bathroom, and stain our towels; we therefore ask you not to use our place to colour your hair.

Remember that our gas, electricity and water are all metered, so ensure that care is taken to use amenities responsibly, saving power and water where possible. Turn lights and appliances off when not actually needed.

Please look after our property and leave it in the same clean and tidy state you found it. We make sure everything is lovely, clean and fresh for your arrival, and with no cleaning charges, we expect you to return it in a similar state. There is no maid service, though we will refresh linens and towels for those staying more than a week. The everyday cleaning is down to you - we don't expect to return to dirty dishes, kitchen mess etc!

Damage and breakages (beyond the inevitable, occasional glass etc) will be reported and charged for.

Sorry, strictly no pets.

Please note, in the case of significant violation of house rules, the reservation will be immediately terminated and all fees forfeited.

The Lancashire 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

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.
