Self-contained & fully modernized, our Lancaster city-centre flat is cosy, quirky & comfortable. You can enjoy sitting at your window looking out on charming buildings & cobbled streets, with all the modern comforts you would want from a home-from-home.

Interaction with guests
Generally I like to greet guests, to say hello, introduce people to the property and show how things work, and handover keys. With advance notice, we can make arrangements for self check-in should guests arrive at a time when I can't be there.
We live close by and can be contacted during your stay, or if we're out of town, take care to remain contactable by phone. When it's time to checkout we'll agree a time for me to pop down to say goodbye, or make an arrangement for securing the property and leaving the keys if your schedule doesn't marry up with mine!

We spent two weeks at Nip Hill and everything was perfect from the very beginning. The flat is exactly as published. It is roomy and extremely well equipped. Its location is simply amazing. You are no more than 500 meters from the train station, 250 meters from the main bus station, 300 meters from the shopping area. (Yes, I measured...

Lovely clean flat with all the things we needed for a week stay, and more. The location was perfect for exploring the local city and really close to the station so great for exploring e surrounding area as well without using the car. Really helpful and friendly owners.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
We will agree specific check in/check out times to try to best fit around your travel plans, as far as possible - we will need an idea about your expected time of arrival (which can be made more accurate as you get closer to your visit, and to Lancaster!) as we are not based at the property. Usually, check in is anytime from 3pm onwards, (late evening arrivals can be accommodated if agreed beforehand) and we would mostly need you to vacate the flat by 11.00am on check-out day. This can be adjusted occasionally, but is dependent on whether or not there are other bookings either side of your stay.

Getting around
Our flat is superbly placed - minutes from town centre shops, and only five minutes on foot from the railway station. (No noise from the trains - don't worry - there's a Hill and a castle between the station and our place!).

Manchester, Carlisle, Glasgow, and Edinburgh reached by fast and regular trains, and there are local trains too.
The bus station, for routes across Lancaster and Morecambe (including a regular service to the University), Lancashire and South Cumbria, is five minutes away too.
