Host Info

Host Review Score 8.1

The proprietors would like to offer you a warm welcome to The Sanderling. The hotel is ideally situated just yards from Morecambe's beach, which offers panoramic views of the open sea and mountains. In addition, you cannot fail to be mesmerised by our sunsets, which are said to be some of the world's more dramatic sights. Our hotel currently has six rooms available with another five being modernised along with a new bar (August ) and new dining room which has been moved from the basement to the ground floor making it a lot brighter and more airy with the centerpiece being the mural of Morecambe Bay Morecambe is an ideal touring resort for the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and other areas of great natural beauty. Our hotel is only one hour from Blackpool Pleasure Beach & the famous Illuminations, and only 5 miles from the historic city of Lancaster. Or travel in the opposite direction to visit the historic village of Heysham with its famous Viking buriel ground and amazing views over the bay . Just a short walk brings you to the seafront with all the entertainment it has to offer, including SoulBowl with bowling alley, pool tables and restaurant and the Reel four screen cinema. As you walk around the town you will probably notice a few locations that are featured in " The Bay " Tv Drama series and at the moment filming is in progress for the third series .

Welcome to The Sanderling guesthouse from Dave & Meru who took over the property in November 2020 in the middle of a Pandemic. We started an extensive renovation programme in January 2021, renewing the kitchen, downstairs accommodation, a new dining room and a new bar. We even gave it a new name, formerly the Silverwell and now The Sanderling - named after a local wading bird which has various different plumages. All the rooms on the top floor are now en-suite, comprising of a family, a double and two single rooms - all of which are newly decorated .

The Hotel is located in a quiet area, a short walk from the Beach and the Town Centre and local amusements.
