“Exquisite Georgian manor house turned luxury boutique B&B, 5 minutes from the centre of Lancaster. Chic styling and exceptional attention to detail make for a romantic bolthole, a different kind of business crashpad, and the perfect stopover en route north.”

Hotel Review

If you’re after a small and stylish place to stay, this five-bedroom B&B run by friendly James Gray, is the place for you. King size beds, 100 % cotton sheets and bathrooms with under-floor heating are all the norm, while room names are quirky and highlight certain aspects. ‘The Nice Bath Room’, ‘The Grand Attic Room’ and ‘James’ Favourite Room’ are just a few, but all are beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Served in the homely dining room, breakfast is a feast with fresh juices, fruit salads, cereals, freshly-baked bread, homemade compôte and granola.... and that’s all before the cooked part, which includes eggs from the hens in the garden and other local ingredients.

It’s set on the outskirts of town, with a microbrewery as its nearest neighbour, but that hasn’t stopped the Ashton becoming the default option in Lancaster...
