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... NOTE: Bookings suspended 20 May - 5 June

The space
However, storms and waves will be abated and your stay will be peaceful, comfortable and you will enjoy Lancaster's cultural city at your fingertips. A wonderful place for solos and couples and, in time, families, friends and larger groups. Your own space, complete privacy and no one else in tow...

Children: Please talk to me - I will consider non-toddlers with responsible parents!

The light and spacious Blue Room has a comfortable (low) double bed, sofa and arm chair. The sofa bed is useable but the room become a little squashed. There is a small wardrobe, and TV with Wifi. The adjacent bathroom has bath, shower, washing machine and a loo with a view.

The large and comfortable, Sumptuous Red Room is now complete with ensuite. It has an enormous King size zipper bed that is made up as two singles - but can be zipped together for snuggles. There is also wardrobe, drawers and somewhere to sit and watch the river below. There's also a SMART TV.

The Attic room is in the process of being made more comfortable. At present it has a futon bed, clothes storage and toilet and small sink. There is no door and stairs are steep. I suggest older children or young adults!

The kitchen: tell me what's missing - I think it has it all with a lovely table at which you can laptop or dine! Help yourself to cereal and fruit, tea and coffee...

So, will you walk the Pendle Witches' Trail or cycle to Slave Sambo's grave at the beautiful Sunderland Point (check tides!!!)?

I give a small percentage of takings to Global Link (a development education centre, creative learning and action for a just and sustainable world (URL HIDDEN) and endeavour always to use eco friendly cleaning products and fair trade or locally sourced delights and you will enjoy completely ethical-sourced services (Phone Co-op broadband), gas and electricity: with Tonik Energy (100% renewable electricity and gas).

(Please note if you want laminate floors and a modern feel - this is NOT for you!)

Bookings are, generally, for three day weekends - otherwise two days please. Occasionally I offer single nights (or please ask).

Claire and Phil look forward to meeting you very soon.

Where you’ll be

Lancashire, England, United Kingdom

The Quay: (just off city centre) - three pubs (two with great food - and the neighbourly George and Dragon, with REAL ALE) and one restaurant: Quite Simply French - worth reserving a snug table - Happy Hour is excellent value and food - quite simply tantalising!; The fascinating, child-friendly Maritime Museum almost next door; what more could you possibly want? Only an ever-changing river at your front and the beautiful Quay Meadows at the back - the castle and priory a stone's throw away.

Phil and I roar through life enjoying time with family, friends and at a variety of festivals around Europe; we love BBQing, simple living, wild camping and supping wine at the end of a busy day. Phil makes wooden flutes and I'm his glamorous assistant when not managing property development. We love the dance and music of the European folk scene which brings us friends far and wide and takes us to wild and wonderful places: castles, muddy fields and outdoor pool ceilidhs! I love to potter round my beloved Lancaster on my pushbike - up canal tow-paths and and down local scenic cycle routes and Phil tours Europe in his continually tweaked Morgan or magically and most beautiful up-cycled Land rover, Bright Phoebe. When time allows we love to ramble the rolling hills in the stunning Lake District nearby and seem sadly, at the moment, to never have time to read a book...

During your stay

Phil and I live at The Stables around the corner (1/2 mile). We will personally welcome you to The Little Crooked House if we possibly can. Phil makes wooden flutes from his workshop and we attend festivals so we will not always be around to welcome you or see you off. (EMAIL HIDDEN). Breakfasts: CONTINENTAL breakfast only. Or, please LET ME KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE FULL ENGLISH BREAST INGREDIENTS and I will source them for you for the start of your stay.
