Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s 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...

My wife and I rented the Crooked House (entire house) for a full week in late May and had a wonderful time. We are from the US, and it was our first trip to the UK. Claire made us feel right at home, ordered beautiful weather, and was a perfect hostess. Everything in the Airbnb d…

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!

This is such an incredible place to stay - the Crooked House feels like being on a cruise at times because of it's architect's unique take on level! And Claire was the perfect host. I needed some time alone to do some writing and was left in privacy, but still felt perfectly hos…
