Morecambe family fun A day of seaside fun in Morecambe is a must for everyone. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Lakeland Fells, Morecambe offers the chance for families young and old to enjoy special times together. At the heart of the resort is Morecambe’s award winning promenade. Stroll along with an ice-cream and enjoy the view, or have fun seeing it on two wheels, before grabbing a picnic and heading on down to the beach for a spot of sandcastle making or kite flying. Don’t forget to visit the Eric Morecambe statue, which looks out across the Promenade, and the Tern project, a series of public art installations inspired by the birdlife of Morecambe Bay.

And, of course, there’s the 1930s Midland Hotel, whose Art Deco façade has been lovingly restored in recent years. Just up the road lies Happy Mount Park, where family-friendly attractions complement the atmosphere of peace and tranquillity of a traditional park. At the end of the day, sit back and watch one of the best sunsets in the world as the sun dips into the sea.

Explore Morecambe Bay Morecambe Bay is a place with spectacular seascapes, unique wildlife and some of the most beautiful walks in Britain.

A number of long distance walking and cycling routes start in the Bay area, including the the Lune Valley Ramble and Way of the Roses (long distance cycle route from Morecambe Bay to Bridlington Bay).

The unique ecology of the Bay makes it one of the most important areas for birdlife in the UK and there are countless opportunities for a range of amazing wildlife experiences, like watching the oystercatchers, knot, curlew and other waders. It’s also a great place for a range of high adrenalin outdoor activities from sailing, to powered paragliding, parachuting, windsurfing, mountain biking, horseriding and kitesurfing.

Wander through picturesque villages such as Hornby, Wray and Caton and take in the beauty of the area.

Describing the district's countryside in 1769 the poet, Thomas Gray, said: “every feature which constitutes a perfect landscape of the extensive sort is here not only boldly marked, but in its best position.”

Gray is not alone and the Lune Valley has provided inspiration for countless others, such as John Ruskin and William Wordsworth.

The route has plenty to offer for all levels of cyclists with a great selection of cycle friendly pubs, hotels, cafes and restaurants along the way.

Prices: Prices quoted in accommodation advertisements are the minimum price based upon bed and breakfast, per person per night midweek for two people sharing a twin or double (unless otherwise stated). Prices published are only a guide; please confirm prices at time of booking. Please note: Whilst every care has been taken to ensure that the information provided in this guide and by the accommodation establishments and other advertisers is accurate, Lancaster City Council cannot accept responsibility for any error or omission which may have occurred.

Using this guide All the accommodation featured in this guide has been quality assessed by either VisitBritain or the AA, or has recently applied for a rating and is awaiting assessment. Please be aware that ratings may change throughout the year. To confirm a rating please visit www.enjoyEngland.com or telephone VisitBritain on 0208 563 3309 or email: feedback@visitbritain.org For AA ratings, visit www.theAA.com or telephone: 01256 844455 or email: customer.services@theAA.com All the national assessing bodies (VisitBritain, VisitScotland, VisitWales and the AA) now assess hotels and guest accommodation (including B&Bs) to the same criteria and award one to five stars. The star ratings reflect the overall quality of the experience. When choosing your accommodation look for the Quality Rose, the official marque of the Enjoy England national tourist board rating scheme. The Enjoy England professional assessors visit every year, carrying out a routine day visit or an overnight stay in the case of serviced accommodation. On these occasions, they book in as you would, as a normal guest and test all the facilities and services. A quality score is awarded for every aspect of the experience including the comfort of the bed, the quality of the breakfast and dinner and, most importantly, the cleanliness. They also score the warmth of welcome. Places that 'go the extra mile' to make your stay a special one, will be awarded a high star rating and hotels and guest accommodation may achieve a Gold or Silver award. For self-catering accommodation, the layout and design of the accommodation and the range and quality of the kitchen equipment is assessed, as well as the quality and comfort of the bedrooms and bathrooms and most importantly, the cleanliness. Higher star-rated accommodation tends to have more spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, and in hotels a higher staff to guest ratio, so service should be very attentive. At five star, you can really expect to be pampered in luxurious surroundings! For serviced accommodation, there are two separate schemes – one for hotels and one for guest accommodation. Hotel Categories: Hotels have a minimum of six bedrooms, but more likely to have 20+ rooms. Small Hotels have a maximum of 20 bedrooms and likely to be more personally run. Country House Hotels have ample grounds or gardens, in a rural or semirural location, with emphasis on peace and quiet. Town House Hotels are in a city/town centre location and are of high quality with a distinctive style. High ratio of staff to guests. Metro Hotels are found in city/town centres, offering full hotel services, but no dinner. Will be within easy walking distance of a range of places to eat. Budget Hotels are part of a chain of branded hotels offering clean and comfortable en suite facilities, 24 hour reservations and a consistent level of facilities. They are not awarded a star rating. Hotels have to provide certain additional facilities and services at the higher star levels. These include: ★ Dinner served five nights a week. ★★ Dinner available every night of the week ★★★ All bedrooms en suite (i.e. no private bathrooms) Room service available Permanently staffed reception. ★★★★ 24-hour room service 50% of all en suites with bath and shower. ★★★★★ Some permanent luxury suites Enhanced services such as concierge. Of course, many lower star-rated hotels may offer some of the above, but just do not meet all of the expectations for the higher star ratings. Sometimes a hotel has exceptional bedrooms and bathrooms and offers its guests a very special welcome, but cannot achieve a higher star rating because, for example, it does not offer dinner every evening (two star), room service (three star) or does not have the minimum 50% of bathrooms with bath and shower (four star).

page 23 Guest Accommodation Categories: Guest Accommodation is the category which encompasses anything from one-room bed and breakfasts to the larger places found in our coastal resorts, which may offer dinner and may be licensed. Bed and Breakfasts generally accommodate no more than six people. It's like staying as a special guest in someone's home. Farmhouses offer bed and breakfast and sometimes dinner, always on a farm. Guest Houses tend to have more than three rooms and may offer dinner to their guests. Some may be licensed. Restaurants with Rooms are just that. The restaurant is the main business and they will be licensed. They generally offer a small number of bedrooms with all the facilities you would expect and breakfast. Inns are pubs with rooms which serve food in the evenings, as well as breakfast. Sometimes access to guest accommodation may be restricted during the day, but you will be advised on booking. Guest accommodation tends to be personally run by the owners. Guest accommodation owners have to provide certain additional facilities and services at the higher star levels. These include: ★★★ Bathroom/shower rooms cannot be shared with the owners. If bedroom not en suite, then wash basin in bedroom ★★★★ At least 50% of bedrooms en suite or private bathroom ★★★★★ All bedrooms en suite or private bathroom Sometimes a bed and breakfast or guest house has exceptional bedrooms and bathrooms and offers guests a very special welcome, but cannot achieve a higher star rating because, for example, they do not have any en suite bedrooms, nor can they easily put wash basins in the bedrooms (three star). This is sometimes the case with period properties. They might not have the minimum 50% of bathrooms with bath and shower (four star). Of course, you will find accommodation with 100% en suite bedrooms at all the star ratings, so refer to the descriptions in this guide to help you make your choice. For self-catering accommodation, the layout and design of the accommodation and the range and quality of the kitchen equipment is assessed, as well as the quality and comfort of the bedrooms and bathrooms and most importantly, the cleanliness. Campus Enjoy England’s campus scheme covers the universities and colleges that are able to accommodate visitors during the vacation periods on a bed and breakfast basis. Generally the rooms are en suite and there will be plenty of single rooms, so large groups will not present a problem. Campus accommodation is star-rated one to five, reflecting the quality of the accommodation. Hostels Hostels provide safe, budget-priced accommodation for young people, families and larger groups and are star-rated. Higher rated accommodation often provides en suite rooms. Holiday, touring, and camping parks and holiday villages: Enjoy England awards star ratings reflecting the overall quality of the park from one to five stars - five stars being reserved for parks of exceptional quality. If you choose to stay in any of Enjoy England's quality-assessed accommodation, you can be confident that it has been checked out before you check in. For more information on the Enjoy England Quality Rose assessment schemes and the star ratings, go to www.enjoyEngland.com The VisitBritain National Accessible Standard for self-catering and serviced accommodation has been reviewed. Accommodation that displays one or more of the signs shown is committed to accessibility. However, it is advisable to check specific requirements at the time of booking.
