Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

Welcome to the historic Lancaster Quay and the Little Crooked House where right angles are not quite 90 degrees and the horizontal is a novelty! A sea captain, used to the listing decks whilst at sea, built his wonky on-shore home some 250 years ago. So beware, shipmates, you may need to adjust your gait to accommodate our sloping floors!
A leaning Listed Building in a beautiful Conservation area, 5 minutes from centre! You won't be disappointed... NEW!!!!! FREE PARKING - please ask!

The house is a little quirky, but very spacious and comfortable. It was a home away from home for two weeks, and also an ideal place from which to explore everything that Lancaster has to offer. I definitely hope to stay again in future!
