Located on the north edge of the city centre, this two bedroom two bathroom apartment has been refurbished to a very high standard. It has one free parking space and bike storage, but is also within walking distance of the city centre.
A wonderful home from home. Professionally interior designed to give that homely lived in feeling the moment you walk through the door.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a modern apartment block (converted from an old bus depot), which is accessed by lift. The apartment has been luxuriously designed and furnished to the highest standard and is truly a home from home. There is a private parking space. The apartment has two double sized bedrooms - the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and has zip link beds so that it can be made up as either a large double bed or two singles. The second bedroom has a double bed. The main bathroom has a shower over the bath. The living space caters for modern living and is open plan to the kitchen and dining areas. Full height sliding doors lead to a balcony area. The living room has a flat screen TV, DVD player and bluetooth speaker / charging dock. The kitchen is fully integrated and has everything you need for a whole range of cooking options. The apartment is great for one to four people, but if you want to accommodate more, there is a sofa bed in the living room which converts into a double bed. Fresh bedding and towels are provided as standard.
Guests will have access to the whole apartment and private parking space.
I will not be available to meet and greet you personally, but I will communicate with you via email or telephone prior to your arrival.
Lancaster's history can be traced back several thousand years. The small city has a cathedral and a medieval castle where the witches of Pendle were imprisoned, and has as its backcloth the beautiful countryside of the Lake District, the Forest of Bowland and the Lune Valley. It is a friendly city packed with pubs, clubs, shops, markets and theatres.
Lancaster Castle, the Cathedral, the Ruskin Library, Williamson Park and St George's Quay with its award-winning Maritime Museum, are noteworthy visitor attractions. Since the prison wing closed in 2011, Lancaster Castle now offers extended tours of the building and courtyard, and runs themed events throughout the year.
There is a good selection of independent cafes and restaurants in the city centre.
Dukes Theatre and the Grand Theatre are in Lancaster, the Platform is in Morecambe. Modern multi-screen cinema complexes are in Lancaster and Morecambe and the Dukes Cinema offers the independents.
Williamson Park, with its refurbished café and acres of beautiful parkland, and Happy Mount Park with traditional landscaping and summer attractions are both popular places to visit.
Two shopping centres with the usual high street names are complemented by the many individual retailers located in the pedestrianised city centre.
There is a popular indoor market, and monthly farmers' markets. Lancaster's outdoor Charter market offers a range of food, gift, book and craft stalls.
The apartment is located in the north of the city centre. It's a short drive to anywhere, but walking, it's about 10 minute walk to/from the city centre shopping area and about 15 -20 mins walk to/from Lancaster train station (0.7 miles). Aldi Supermarket is next door to the building and a large Sainsbury's Supermarket is 5 minutes walk. Lancaster University is located south of the city and can be reached by car in approximately 20 minutes.
Lancaster prides itself on its excellent network of cycle tracks. Most of the city centre is pedestrianised and walking and cycling are strongly encouraged. Local bus services are efficient. Road and rail links are good. The West Coast Main Line service operating between London and Glasgow stops in Lancaster. The M6 is the north–south motorway. Coach services are good and ferry services operate from the Isle of Man to Heysham harbour. The region's main airport is Manchester and there are smaller airports at Blackpool and Liverpool
Other Things to Note:
Currently some cosmetic works on-going to the building, but this should not affect your stay.
