  • "Lovely, quirky property that is beautifully decorated and furnished."

    Great location and helpful owner. Highly recommend!

  • "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.

  • "Lovely flat which is tastefully decorated."

    Great bedrooms, with large beds and cotton bedding. Situated near to centre, the castle, a park, and the Storey building. James is warm and friendly, and was very helpful in recommending restaurants and giving us other useful tips. If ever I am in Lancaster, I will definitely stay here again.

  • "Lovely apartment overlooking the River Lune and on the Bay cycle track."

    The generous welcome pack was very much appreciated as was the good selection of local history books and the eclectic mix of fiction and non fiction. 25 St George’s Quay has an interesting history and the owner has provided information and more can be found in the Maritime Museum two doors away. Lancaster Castle is only 10 mins walk and the guided tour was excellent as was Atkinsons coffee. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and if we visit Lancaster again we would definitely stay at this apartment.

  • "Lovely apartment."

    Great location to city centre only a short walk away. Beautifully decorated throughout and amazing comfortable beds. We had a brilliant week and would definitely return. Really appreciated the welcome basket and milk in the fridge when we arrived. You can park a few minutes walk away for free which was not an issue.

  • "A very enjoyable and comfortable few days."

    The location is ideal. Parking was easy. We just parked up and didn't use the car again. As it was the Christmas period most places were closed but we were still able to visit the castle, enjoy a special meal at Quite Simply French ( just two doors away) and enjoy walks alongside the river. We appreciated the extras like fresh flowers, magazines and biscuits.

  • "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

  • "The apartment exceeded expectations."

    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.

    The flat is ideally placed for discovering Lancaster, we walked miles, it also has easy access to trains, buses and taxis, we didn’t use our car once.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay here."

    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.

    Sadly, Lancaster itself is looking a bit run down these days, but there is plenty to see in the surrounding area.

  • "We had a comfortable and enjoyable stay at St George's Quay."

    The place is beautifully furnished and there were several little extras - magazines, biscuits, flowers - that helped to make it feel extra special. The location was really convenient for a holiday by train and bus - both train station and bus station are under a 10 minute walk, and there's a very nearby Sainsbury's. Spotted a heron on the river outside the window too!

  • "This is a lovely holiday let."

    There is literally everything there you need, also a nice welcome pack and attention to detail such as fresh flowers made the flat very welcoming. There's a useful guest information pack with a bit of history about the house, we followed this with a visit to the Maritime Museum two doors away, which gave us an interesting insight into the history of St Georges Quay. Other books in the house gave us an ideas about what to visit during our stay. Excellent.

    The flat was really pretty and clean, with great modern facilities. The area was lovely and easy to get about even though I didn’t have a car, the town and local attractions were all really accessible. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a staycation. Particularly enjoyed Williamson Park and Holm.

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.

About the location

LANCASTER

Morecambe 5 miles; Kendal 21 miles; Windermere 38 miles.

The historic city of Lancaster sits on edge of Morecambe Bay, with the River Lune flowing through its centre. Lancaster retains many excellent examples of handsome Georgian architecture, and with its captivating medieval castle, Ashton Memorial, and four museums, it’s an interesting place for those in search of history and tales of the past. Among the many amenities, there are two venues for live performances, the Lancaster Grand Theatre and the Dukes, as well as open-air concerts held frequently in the pretty Williamson Park during the summer season. The Forest of Bowland and The Arnside & Silverdale Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty provide visitors with lots of opportunities to take in the flora and fauna of the area, with wonderful walking and cycling ways to enjoy. There are also good road and rail links into Cumbria and beyond, meaning Lancaster is a wonderful base for also exploring the Lake District.
