If you are wandering around Lancaster and looking for yummy coffee and pastries then get yourself here. Serving Atkinsons coffee and their wonderful selection of baked goods, The Music Room offers sanctuary from the variety of chain coffee stores in the center of town

This is one the best Landmark Trust properties we have visited. The bedroom is just breath-taking. The living area on the top floor is very cosy with city views.

Yes. We bake some very special Gluten-free Chocolate Brownies & Lemon Drizzle Cake fresh every day in our Bakery across the road in The Hall, where we also roast the coffee to go with them!
