Rays background is in teaching, Sue has a Learning disability nursing background, and has a lot of experience working with people with an ASC.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Owner chose Caton-with-Littledale
The Quarters is a flexible space, and suitable for all, visiting friends and family, or taking a break. A warm welcome awaits you, we greet with a bottle of wine, milk tea and coffee. Our expert local knowledge is an added bonus, we can point you in the direction of great vistas and eateries ! Open for twelve years, we have welcomed guests from 24 different countries, and from all over the UK. We also have plenty of maps and walking, and cycling books for you to borrow, to enhance your visit. Bought as offices, complete refurbishment has ensured that the inclusive nature of The Quarters was in place from the very beginning. Extra width doors, all sockets and switches at a metre high, and an excellent bathroom which is spacious and cosy, show a subtle but effective specification for wheelchair users. The huge windows were retained making a light airy, and comfortable holiday apartment, complimented by a private garden with a stream flowing down the side, ideal for relaxing or entertaining. Explore this diverse area- City Coast Countryside, its all here !

Great apartment, lovely area, friendly.
We (2 adults, 3 children aged 10, 12, 14 and dog) found the apartment very welcoming, with loads of local info to browse through on arrival. The local info was very useful and accurate which we used a lot. The village has some lovely walks and wished we could have stayed longer to explore more. The location of the apartment is excellent for those who want to visit the Lakes for a relaxing time or a more active time in Blackpool of which we did both! We were impressed with the cleanliness of the apartment and that it had all the home comforts, and more, e.g welcoming provisions and the beds all ready made up. The Ship Pub we highly reccommend for meals out and also The Royal Oak (about 4 miles away). A very family orientated base to organise your holiday from. Will certainly try to go there again.
Thankyou Alli and Bill. It was our pleasure, and we were both impressed by the dams the boys made in our stream! Ray and Sue

Home From Home
It's like home from home. Sue was very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. As a wheelchair user, The Quarters was very accessible, alot more than most places where I have stayed, who have said that they have been wheelchair accessible.
The place was nice and clean. The owners were very friendly, welcoming us and flexible to our needs. It was also great value for money and is only 10 min drive to Lancaster. We would definitely stay again. Thanks.
Happy new Year, all the best for 2016. Many thanks for you review ! Very kind gesture especially at this busy holiday time of the year, please do come again, this area has a lot to offer in the spring and summer for picnics, walks etc. Many thanks for the Prosecco and very best wishes for the future :) Sue and Ray
Roomy, comfortable and clean
Wishing to visit relatives in the area we were looking for a place to stay. This ticked all the boxes for us when viewing it online. When we arrived it was great to see it exceeded our expectations. The owners have put a lot of effort into making guests feel welcome and the little touches (like providing detergent for the washing machine) made our stay even better. The next time we are planning to be in the area we will look to stay here again.
Many thanks for your lovely, and honest review. We are happy to have exceeded your expectations ! We do strive to provide the smaller items such as cling film and foil etc. This ensures guests can travel light, and enjoy being in a beautiful part of England.
Due to our close proximity to good road and rail links, many of our guests are visiting friends or relatives in the area, and return repeatedly.
Again thank you for taking the time to comment, and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
