Perfect Accommodation for the University of Cumbria

When visiting Lancaster for university purposes, either as a visiting lecturer or to visit students, you are guaranteed a warm and personal welcome.
Our luxury bed & breakfast makes a refreshing change from the bland corporate chain hotel or room above a noisy city centre pub. 
Set in an acre of gardens there's plenty of safe, free parking.
We offer late check-in and early departure to suit you.
We also offer free wifi.

Location

We are located within walking distance of the University of Cumbria.

The Ashton is located on the edge of Lancaster, next to Williamson Park. We're almost the last house before you're into the beautiful Trough of Bowland. The house is in it's own grounds with plenty of parking & despite being so close to the City Centre it feels like stay at a country retreat. View a Google map... Lancaster University is just 2 miles away.

Getting to us by car is easy, junctions 33 & 34 of the M6 are 10 minutes away. Our address is Well House, Wyresdale Road, Lancaster LA1 3JJ. On booking I'll email directions as Sat Nav can have problems with our postcode. Lancaster's train station is on the West Coast Line and a Virgin Train from London Euston will get you here in 2 and a half hours. Once you've arrived The Ashton is just under a mile away, there's a taxi rank off the North-bound platform and a cab shouldn't be more than £5.
