Lancaster and the Area

Lancaster is situated in one of the most interesting, varied and beautiful areas in England, where there is a genuine quality of choice rarely to be found so close together.
Whether walking in the Lakes or Yorkshire Dales, enjoying the fun of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, RSPB’s Leighton Moss reedbeds and rich bird life, a Morecambe Bay sunset or Cross Bay Walk, the beauty of the Trough of Bowland, Ingleton and its spectacular waterfall walk, inland waterways and cycling alongside the River Lune or Lancaster Canal.  Also the splendid Steam Train journey on the Settle to Carlisle railway starts and finishes at Lancaster Station - a great centre piece for a holiday …..it's all here for you.  

If you want to stay local, just stroll out of Mulberry Cottage to enjoy the Lancaster on your doorstep.  There are plenty of historic sites to visit including; the Castle, The Judges’ Lodging, Maritime Museum, and the beautiful Priory. You will also find historic pubs, a wide variety of restaurants, multiplex cinema and two great theatres.  In addition, the city has a rich cultural life and there are numerous festivals during the year including LitFest, the Kite Festival, Play in the Park and the Music and Jazz festivals.  


To complete the picture, there is the beautifully preserved St George’s Quay, the tidal River Lune, and Williamson’s Park where you will see the prominent Ashton Memorial which dominates the City from its hill top position.  Lancaster was named as one of England's most vibrant inner cities by Experian in 2013.
