Thurnham Mill Lane
Tel: 01524 752 852
This property is a large converted mill sitting on the Lancaster Canal. It has a lock beside it which makes a great backdrop view for the restaurant. The building has been converted to a very high standard with a lift to all floor to save the legs of the weary cyclist. Bikes can be stored in a large laundry area on the ground floor.
The room was very clean, very well presented (my photo shows a slightly unmade bed but that is because I had slightly unmade it 🙂 The en-suite bathroom was immaculate and there was lots of hot water.
I was well looked after by Liz, the duty manager, who personally led me to the laundry to settle my bike in for the night, showed me to my room and even poured my Guinness whilst I waited for the steak and chips I had ordered as a reward for reaching roughly halfway. The food was excellent, the steak cooked to perfection.
After a good night’s sleep I was still too full in the morning to manage a Full English. So, after my starter of fruit juice, muesli and toast I ordered a bacon omelette which was large, delicious and perhaps as filling as the Full English. Fortunately the first few miles cycling were flat.
