Foxgloves is a comfortable and modern mews style property located on Lytham Quays, a modern residential development on the outskirts of the popular coastal town of Lytham. The cosmopolitan town of Lytham offers a good selection of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops including several antique shops and designer boutiques. It is a popular destination for couples wanting a coastal escape with plenty of lovely walks and lots of nice places to dine. There is a wide choice of entertainment and leisure facilities in the area, not least Lytham’s 5 championship golf courses which are well known internationally. It is also known for the Lytham Proms event which takes place at the beginning of August every year. Other activities available locally include boating, bowling, cycling and swimming. Due to its proximity to the reeds and marshes of the Ribble Estuary the area is also popular with birdwatchers and wildlife lovers. The bright lights of Blackpool with its famous tower, Pleasure Beach, zoo, Sealife Centre and Sandcastle Water Park, is just 9 miles away making this a great choice of holiday property for families who want lots to see and do without being right in the thick of it. Other towns worth visiting on the north west coast include Thornton Cleveleys and Fleetwood, whose Designer Shopping Outlet Village is very popular. Apart from the coast there are so many other places to visit that are within easy reach of Foxgloves, and its proximity to the M55 which connects to the M6 makes it very accessible. Ribble Valley, Forest of Bowland AONB, Yorkshire Dales and Lake District can all be reached in just under an hour. Shop 1/2 mile, pub and restaurant 11/2 miles.
We stayed at Foxgloves for a long weekend to celebrate my Dad's 80th birthday. The cottage is on a new housing development but is really close to Lytham town centre and Lytham Green - a 10 minute walk - so easy to get to shops and restaurants. The cottage is really nicely furnished and had everything we needed for a weekend stay. Parking is a bit tight but there is an allocated parking space which is great. The beds were really comfy and the cottage lovely and cosy. Having good wifi was great too :) Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends. Thank you Stella.
