Modern suite close to Lake District

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Victoria St, Morecambe, LA4 4AF, United Kingdom

Our private ground floor suite of rooms is wonderfully located for visiting the northern National Parks and cities as well as being a great stopover for travelling north or south. For a long stay or short stay a friendly welcome is assured.

The Space

The suite, which can accommodate up to four adults, is located on the ground floor of our house and consists of a bedroom with two single beds, a toilet with bath/shower, a lounge with a comfy double sofa bed and a small room with a sink and a wardrobe. It has its own door and is completely separate from our upstairs accommodation.

As an option for parties of up to six people including two children we can also provide two small single sofa beds.

Our house is located in the centre of Morecambe with short walks to all all the amenities. Just around the corner is the seafront promenade and beach with the spectacular views across Morecambe Bay to the mountains of The Lake District.

The town motto of Morecambe is "Beauty surrounds; health abounds" and within close range in all directions the surroundings have masses to offer.

Easy access to the beautiful Lake District by car (also possible by train and bus).

There are lots of cycle/walking paths which start right by our house. The paths will take you into Lancaster, along canal tow paths, around the Bay and as far as the Crook O'Lune and Glasson Dock Marina.

Also close by is the RSPB bird reserve Leighton Moss.

We are very happy to give advice or accompany our guests to provide guide services throughout the North West of England. Why not have a look at the map for typical examples of the many places to visit in the region :-)

Using our local knowledge ensures your maximum enjoyment.

  • We had a really comfortable stay in Graeme and Marianne's colourful, clean flat - they were really welcoming and friendly and gave us lots of good tips for what to enjoy in Morecambe. Thank you for your hospitality!

  • Our stay with Graeme and Marianne was a really fantastic experience. The location was ideal to be near both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales whilst staying at the coast. We were made to feel relaxed and at home. The flat had everything we needed and Graeme & Marianne are very kind and helpful, they gave us plenty of good ideas of great places to visit. We highly recommend this airbnb!

  • Excellent modern suite, location excellent I'll be back next year if not before :-)

  • Graeme is super nice and friendly. We arrived the house quite late almost midnight, he prepared milk, coffee, and tea waiting us. Even had work next morning he still introduced us the whole environment and made sure we know everything well. And provided us very useful information for sightseeing, the place he told us is breathtaking beautiful. Before he went bed he told us we can stay as late as we want for next day and offered free parking for full day. Pity we couldn't meet Marianne and only stayed one night this time, definitely will go visiting again for longer time to see the lake district and Graeme and Marianne!

  • Graeme and Marianne made our short break in Morcambe very pleasant. The accommodation was clean and warm really nice to come back to in the evenings. We certainly would be in contact again to stay in this lovely apartment.

    February 2014
  • Graeme & Marianne are such incredibly gracious hosts and their apartment is fantastic! We will be back for a longer time for sure!

    February 2014
  • It was our first experience of Air BnB and we found Graeme and Marianne were excellent hosts. They were very helpful in guiding us to out of the way spots that many tourists never see, as well as many suggestions on things to do that may have been of interest to us. It is a good sized unit with central heating and off street parking. We found this an excellent location and central for our touring around. We would definitely stay there again if we were back in the area. Thank you Graeme and Marianne for a most enoyable stay in Morecambe.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Graeme and Marianne! They were very gracious hosts and offered us many helpful suggestions for places to visit in the area. We also really enjoyed talking with them, they are very nice people. The apartment was perfect for us. The kitchen came in handy if we did not feel like eating out, and the living area was a very comfortable room to relax in (we also chose to use the double bed in there). The location is great, and there was very convenient parking in the back. We would definitely stay there again, and I hope that we get a chance to because a few days in the Lake District is not nearly enough time!

  • Marianne and Graeme are extremely nice people. They tried everything to make sure we had a wonderful stay in their flat. It is merely a stone's throw away from the sea, with free parking, and a short drive from the Lake District. Overall we had a wonderful time and it was very lovely to meet Marianne and Graeme, they are the best hosts you can possibly hope for. We would definitely recommend them and their flat.

    October 2013
  • We really enjoyed our night in the flat. Marianne and Graeme were very helpful and welcoming and very prompt to reply to our messages.
    The flat is bright and very clean with modern furniture and lots of prints – Picasso, Kadinsky and Snoopy! We all slept well and the beds, including the sofa bed were really comfy. The flat is very central yet has the benefit of a car parking space out the back.
    We really recommend staying here and you should go for a drink in the Midland Hotel as well.

We are both big time into skiing and also love scrambling in the beautiful English Lake District which is right on our doorstep. We love travelling and meeting new people. We spent seven winters working as chalet hosts and ski guides in the French Alps but now we are settled permanently in Morecambe.
