“Lovely Apartment”

Lovely apartment filled with character and charm. Everything you need is there to make your stay comfortable. All this within a short walking distance from the railway station and Lancaster town centre.

“Simply superb”

This place is a real home from home. Cath and Andy have thought of everything, from thoughtfully providing basics in the kitchen that you are free to use, to board games and books in the lounge and lovely soft furnishing and soft fluffy towels! The flat is in a superb location, right next to the castle and is full of character with old fashioned street lights outside and lovely views of cobbled lanes and historic tiled roofs. Heating is modern and very effective and kitchen is well equipped with excellent cooker. This really was a lovely stay and the owners were very helpful. Highly recommended!

“very comfortable, great location.”
Reviewed August 28, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

we had a great 4 night stay here on our way back south from Edinburgh. The flat is superbly situated in the old town next to the castle and very handy to the station ( for the lakes and Morecambe bay etc) and all the amenities and sights of Lancaster. Disappointed that a good wifi connection wasn't available - but everything else was great.

“Lots of character and a great location”
Reviewed March 28, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at the apartment for 4 days while visiting family in the area. It was very comfortable and quiet, and in a wonderful location right by the castle and within walking distance of the station, shops and cafes.
The owners were very helpful and walked us through the quirks of finding and living in an old building. They have modernized the apartment tastefully while retaining its character. It is larger than it looks and with a pleasant living room and well equipped kitchen it makes a good home away from home.
Parking is rather a problem, but that is going to be the case anywhere in the centre of Lancaster.

“Home From Home”
Reviewed September 15, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

I have just had a 5 night stay at Nip Hill and I found it to be an excellent base from which to explore the area. Being less than a five minute walk from both the train and bus stations a car is not necessary. The flat itself is very comfortable and well equipped. Being an old building it is in someways unusual which added greatly to its charm. Staying on my own I felt very secure. Lancaster is a very vibrant city with lots of bars, cafés and restaurants. I could certainly made the flat on Nip Hill my home.

“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed at Nip Hill for 1 night with two of my friends. I was thrilled with the accommodation, it was flawless. Spacious, bright, clean and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The iPod dock hidden in the radio was a great find. Fabulous location, right opposite the castle. We parked outside the castle which was free of charge from 6pm saturday and all day sunday. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and very friendly. Communication was excellent. Definitely stay again.
