Castle View


We were so lucky to find such a hidden gem and be some of the first to stay in this brand new air bnb! The cottage is in the walled grounds of Jenny and Gary’s house right next to Lancaster Castle and just up the road from the train station. The location is perfect for transport, shops and restaurants. Despite being so central the cottage is incredibly peaceful. Absolutely no city noise at all. It’s like a little oasis.

Inside is immaculate and really stylish. The bed in a cupboard is inspired. It’s surrounded by a handy shelf for books, drinks etc with perfectly placed sockets for iPhones. The mattress and bedding is top quality and luxurious. I could easily have spent all day in probably the most comfortable and cosy bed I’ve ever slept in! The kitchen is well equipped and spotlessly clean with big fridge and freezer. And from the dining table you can look out to the castle. The cottage feels really spacious inside due to its double height ceiling and well planned storage. We loved the copper bath and rain shower.

Jenny is lovely and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Always quick to respond as she’s just next door – though the cottage feels very separate from their house. She’s an artist and her amazing photos of ultra magnified sand are on the walls adding to the overall beach house with a twist stylings.

Highly recommended. We will definitely be booking in next time we’re in Lancaster. Hope to stay longer next time!
