The Ashton, Lancaster
Built in 1830, this handsome Georgian house is Lancaster’s most stylish place to stay. The 18th Century manor house has been specially refurbished and is now Lancaster's only 5 star Gold rated accommodation.

Great beds covered with egyptian cotton bedding; luxurious bathrooms and toiletries worth staying in the tub for.

Imaginative and lovingly prepared breakfasts and in the evenings choose from a range of fresh, homed cooked food in our comfortable dining room, using the best locally sourced produce.

Combine this with a relaxed atmosphere, personal service and local knowledge, then you’re staying at The Ashton.
