In a historic building, but with the modern comforts you'd want from a home-from-home, our city-centre flat is cosy, quirky and comfortable. Situated right next to Lancaster Castle, expect charming buildings & quiet cobbled streets, yet still be in the heart of town in two minutes! We welcome people looking for a peaceful, quiet stay in a lovely residential part of the city. IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE: We are sorry but we cannot accommodate children below nine years nor accept pets.

Our stay "at the Castle" was excellent in every way. The flat was perfectly located close to both the bus and train stations, as well as pubs and other amenities. We highly recommend Cathy's place!
