The seaside resort of Lytham St Annes lies on the Fylde coast of Lancashire, on the Ribble Estuary. With four golf courses, leafy avenues and a graceful seafront, this prosperous community is a popular base for a break on the northwest coast of England. Take a wander from your Lytham St Annes Holiday Home and you will discover beautiful gardens, well-tended lawns and boating lakes. Follow graceful streets lined with Edwardian and Victorian homes towards St Anne’s Road, where you will find a variety of independent shops, cafes and tearooms. There are a number of striking historic landmarks to look out for in the town centre, including the market hall, and the Clifton Arms Hotel. Some of the town’s oldest buildings are located on Henry Street, where an award-winning pub, the Taps, can be found. The sandy beach is a wonderful place to while away a day, within walking distance of holiday cottages in Lytham St Annes. Overlooked by colourful beach huts, the expanse of sandy shore is ideal for sunbathing, building sandcastles or a bracing swim in the sea.
Wandering along the promenade, breathtaking views can be enjoyed across the sweeping Ribble Estuary and distant Welsh mountains. At the Green, which runs between the beach and the main coastal road, you will notice some of the town’s best-known landmarks, including the recently-restored windmill and the Old Lifeboat House Museum, where the area’s maritime past is documented. The town’s love of golf is unmistakable, and of its four world-class golf courses, Royal Lytham and St Annes is the most famous, having hosted the Open Championship 11 times. Self-catering holidays in Lytham St Annes are a great choice for visitors who want to explore northwest England, with Blackpool, Morecambe and the Forest of Bowland all close enough for day trips.
