Liz helped arrange a visit to a local school, hospital, and church at our request. The breakfast is delicious (fruit, eggs, bacon & sausage, grilled tomato & mushrooms, toast, juice & coffee/tea, cereal, yogurt). Very friendly & helpful staff.More

Gregkerr2018 - I think we need to be paying you to do Liz at Lancaster's marketing and copyrighting. We love that you have never had a "scinitilla of an ick" or EVEN an "icklette" when staying here. Please please come and stay again. Catherine said...More
