    “A lovely character apartment in a great location, warm, comfortable and very well equipped!”

    An easy walk into historic Lancaster and great pubs and restaurants close by. Perfect days out to The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales both under an hours drive, and close to Morecambe & Blackpool. Would certainly return!

The property

A charming apartment overlooking the River Lune on the edge of Lancaster's city centre.

The building dates back to the 18th century and was built by a renowned local sailor, Captain Dodshon Foster.

This characterful apartment has been styled to reflect its sea faring history.

Set over two levels of the second floor and provides perfect accommodation for those looking for a well-earned city break.

The lower level includes two inviting bedrooms, one king-size and one double, the latter providing superb views over the river.

This level is complete with a family bathroom including a bath tub to soak away life's troubles after a busy day out and about.

Upstairs you will find a well-equipped kitchen and a comfortable sitting room complete with Velux windows and exposed beams, a delightful space to relax and dine in the company of loved ones.

The apartment is in an enviable location with peaceful walks and bike rides along the river it fronts, or through the open meadow to the rear, as well as pubs, restaurants and shops all found within a short stroll of the property.

The celebrated restaurant, Quite Simply French was voted as Lancaster's best restaurant and can be found just a few doors down.

The city of Lancaster with its alluring Georgian buildings populating the vibrant centre provides a superb choice of shops and places to eat or stop for a coffee on a day out shopping.

For those interested in the city's rich history, why not visit the castle as well as the many museums to find out more?

Or those looking to explore the great outdoors, Lancaster is within easy reach of the coast, the Forest of Bowland and The Lake District National Park.

A wonderful holiday base, all year round.

About the location


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.
