  • "We had an excellent stay at the flat, loved the location and it was all beautifully presented as advertised and the living area was even more spacious than we had expected."

    The beds especially were extremely comfortable and the blackout blinds were perfect for getting a good night sleep. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery and cooking equipment, and the dishwasher was a welcome addition. James, the host, was excellent with prompt communication and had provided some fascinating history about the property too. Overall would highly recommend for anyone visiting Lancaster, and we would definitely stay here again.

    Morning Jemimah Now I'm flattered! What very kind words from you. Thanks so much for what you've said. And you're right, of course, that the house is full of history. That makes it all very special. Best from me James Property Owner

    Ideal if you want to give the car a rest as 5 mins to bus or rail station, even a bus to the front door. Visited lakes twice , blackpool morecambe ( which is looking much smarter ) and the local countryside which was lovely . Lancaster is great for things to do and see loads of history . Brilliant stay , the cleanest we have stayed in by far .

    Very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Our children really enjoyed the quirky layout and different ceiling heights! The adults appreciated the very thoroughly prepared welcome pack giving the maritime history of the house and it's surroundings together with recommendations for local eateries and practical information. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it.

  • "We booked this property when visiting our daughter at Lancaster University."

    The apartment is in a great location over looking the river but within easy walking distance of the city centre. We had no problem parking right outside the front door for the whole time of our visit and there was no charge which was a bonus. The apartment was very clean, warm and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped - the only thing lacking was an iron and iron board. Communication with James was good and the contactless key collection was perfect.

    Hi Alison Thanks so much for taking the time to post a comment. It's great to hear what people think and I try to take on board suggestions and ideas. Hence, iron and ironing board now provided ;) Property Owner

  • "25 St. George’s Quay is a lovely, quirky apartment."

    From its big, old, red door to its wonky floors, every bit of it is a charming place to stay. It’s very homely, tastefully decorated and in a great location. It’s also very clean and there’s plenty of hot water. We’ve really enjoyed our half term stay. It’s also really nice to stay somewhere that has a story and it’s very interesting to read about the history of the building. The riverside location gives great views. The property is almost sandwiched between the Maritime Museum (which was great) and the George and Dragon pub next door (which was also great!). The new landlord was very friendly and welcoming to both adults and kids. We had some lovely meals out in and around Lancaster and enjoyed visits to the Castle, Police museum and Williamson Park. The views from the Ashton Memorial were amazing! The owner of the apartment , James, was very friendly and provided us with more information about parking before our arrival. We never struggled to park as there are a few options. We would definitely recommend this property. Thanks for a lovely week in Lancaster.

  • "The apartment was lovely."

    It was in a very convenient position with the town centre and castle just a short stroll away. Lancaster is certainly worth a visit with the Lake District and Morecombe just a short drive away. The stairs up to the apartment did not pose a problem to us but there are 3 short flights of stairs to climb so may be a problem to some. Lancaster has many bars and restaurants to choose from and the shopping centre has lots of independent shops.

  • "Flat 3, 25 St George's Quay is a lovely character holiday property, and is situated in a perfect location, overlooking the river, and just outside the busy centre, so lovely and quiet, but within easy walking distance of everything."

    The flat is on the top 2 floors, so relative fitness is needed, but it's spacious, and has everything you'd need. Beds are very comfy, the kitchen is well equipped, and there is plenty of room for 4 people. The quirky, wonky floors make you feel drunk even when you're not. The only negative I can give is it needs more than one set of keys, but we would definitely stay here again.

  • "Absolutely superb."

    The penthouse apartment is very well equipped with quality beds furniture and kitchen and gives views front and back. Very quiet considering just off city centre location on the historic Riverside Quay. The welcome pack was great and meant we relaxed as soon as arrived. You can park outside 3pm to 11am and a 3 min walk you can park as long as you like. Perfect if you don't drive or want a week off driving though as less than 5 mins pleasant walk to train or bus station . We made good use of the bus to Carnforth Silverdale Morecambe ( £5 day ticket) and The Lakes (takes an hour and for £12 it includes every bus plus open top busses in the lakes or £17.50 it's all that plus a lovely boat trip on Windermere) . Great food at the waggon and horses (1min walk) and Lancaster is awash with gorgeous parks and fascinating museums so whatever the weather you have lots to do. 100% happy.

  • "Perfectly located to explore Lancaster’s shopping centre, museums, pubs and historic buildings on foot, yet a couple of hundred yards outside the city traffic bustle."

    Riverside walks, up to the canal aqueduct (big Sainsbury's en-route, just five mins from apartment). Lovely views of the tidal river from one bedroom and a lounge skylight. Quality bedding and comfortable lounge furniture. Gifts and flowers made a wonderful welcome. Perfect wifi. Owner agreed to add a mirror sometime, in one of the bedrooms, for ladies hair-drying! Free parking was always available overnight, right outside. This is between 3pm and 11am, but don’t stretch it. The wardens are active and we saw a ticketed car exceeding the middle-daytime 3 hour limit. 24/7 free unlimited parking is 1 min drive / 4 mins walk away, beyond the railway bridge, for when not using the car … the bus station is less than ten mins walk, which gets you easily to lovely Morecambe, or to Blackpool etc.

  • "It was a lovely quirky property."

    The facilities are easy to access. We will use it again. Great meal at the Waggon and Horses. Fantastic to watch the river. Notes I have loaded the "Now" app onto the smart TV it worked well. NOT FOR Public consumption as they are very very minor points: There are no deep cereal dishes; There is no lighting over the dining table; The main light in the lounge is beautiful but ineffective. The lock to the door is very fiddly to close; The bathroom has no heating in it.

    Hi Adrian Glad you enjoyed your stay - welcome back! I hear what you say about lighting at the dinner table and I have now provided a third standing light for use there or, indeed, elsewhere. And, yes, you're right the beautiful overhead light is part of the design rather than practicality! Heating in the bathroom is provided by the enormous circular towel rail rather than an electric radiator for safety reasons. Property Owner

  • "The flat was very comfortable and well appointed."

    It is in a good location, close to the town center and with good restaurants a few doors away, plus a quiet real ale pub next door. The riverside walkway and cycle track are easily accessible from the flat which will take you conveniently to the supermarket or further upstream to the Lune Aquaduct. Behind the flat is a path up to the Priory Church, a gem of a building. Lancaster's one way system is a nightmare to the uninitiated and better guidance on which lane to be in and when to change lane would be helpful. A parking permit, for the Council car park behind the flat, would have been great.

    Thanks for your very kind comments! Much appreciated. Frustratingly, Lancaster council ties parking permits for St George's Quay car park to individual registration plates so it's not possible to get a permit for any car. Property Owner

    It was light and bright with wonderful views over the river Lune. The apartment has been renovated to a high standard and the furnishings were comfortable. Big comfortable beds with gorgeous duvets. Despite being next to a pub we had no noise problems. Next door are two excellent places to eat and the Maritime Museum was well worth a couple of hours, and lots of walks from the doorstep. A large Sainsburys a short walk away as is the City centre with all the shops. Excellent.

    This is a 2nd and 3rd floor upside down duplex in a lovely old listed building on the quayside. Quirky and characterful, creaky and wonky!! 10 out of 10 for comfort, I counted 14 cushions and 8 pillows! The bedding was sublime and the bed the comfiest I’ve ever slept in. I had the room at the back overlooking the park. Lots of storage and great quality furnishings. The apartment is a credit to the owner. The area around Lancaster is really lovely with lots to see and do. The city itself has lots of beautiful buildings but does look tatty in places. Overall I’d highly recommend a stay here.

The property

25 St Georges Quay is a charming period apartment housed on the top two floors of a Grade II listed building, dating from the 1750s on Lancaster’s historic quayside, overlooking the River Lune and yes, there’s free parking, too.

As soon as you enter the hall, you’ll notice the solid wooden floors have shifted slightly over the years, adding to the building’s quirky and creaky character.

The bedrooms are here, accessed directly from the hall.

The rear south-facing bedroom overlooks Quay Meadow, whilst the front bedroom boasts stunning river views through its Georgian windows.

The modern bathroom’s on this floor, too.

Watch your head as you climb the stairs and you’ll come up into the living room.

Roughly-hewn wooden beams line the high V-shaped ceiling.

This was once the home of one of Lancaster’s leading 18th Century merchants.

With daylight streaming into the living room through the generous Velux windows in the roof, what better place to sit and enjoy the views.

The newly fitted kitchen is accessed directly from the living room.

There’s free, unlimited, on-street parking just 1min away as well as a Pay and Display right behind the property.

About the location


Morecambe 3 miles; Windermere 30 miles; Blackpool 37 miles.

The historic city of Lancaster sits on edge of Morecambe Bay, the sea is barely 3 miles away. Equally, Lancaster is perfect if you’re looking to explore the Lake District, Windermere is just 30 miles away.

The tidal River Lune flows through the city and St George’s Quay, with its elegant Georgian warehouses standing eave to eave on the riverfront, is considered to be the finest example of an original 18th Century port anywhere in the country.

Indeed, Lancaster retains many examples of handsome Georgian architecture and the area around the castle, particularly Castle Hill, Castle Park and Nip Hill are considered its most alluring quarter.

Lancaster’s skyline is dominated by the Ashton Memorial, made of white Portland stone and dedicated to the second wife of millionaire industrialist, Lord Ashton, it’s built in Neo-Baroque style and affords spectacular views of Morecambe bay from its hilltop location in Williamson Park, open-air concerts are held throughout the summer in the park.

Foremost among Lancaster’s clutch of museums, the Maritime Museum is the place to get to grips with Lancaster’s role in the unsavoury slave trade, behind only London, Bristol and Liverpool, Lancaster was the fourth largest city engaged in the 18th Century trade of African slaves across the Atlantic.

In addition to the Lake District, some of northern England’s greatest scenery is right on your doorstep: the Forest of Bowland, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, all easily accessible, offer the perfect opportunity to discover nature in the raw. And don’t forget, Lancaster’s location on the West Coast Mainline, means there are direct trains to all parts of the country.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Off-season
