The seaside towns of Cleveleys (with it newly designed promenade) and Fleetwood with the pier and harbour are only a short drive away. A ferry trip from Fleetwood takes you across to The Isle of Man daily and is around 4 hours. Blackpool is a fantastic seaside town with attractions for all ages. The Blackpool tower is a must to view the whole area and was inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It rises to 518 feet 9 inches. The Blackpool Tower Ballroom is world famous for its unique sprung dance floor and spectacular architecture. The Blackpool Tower Dungeon is the ultimate thrill-filled journey through 1,000 years of Lancashire’s murky past and finally there is the Tower Circus with trapeze artists, clowns and much more. Blackpool pleasure beach is great for those looking for the thrill of a lifetime, with the Big One rollercoaster at a nail biting height of 235ft. The first drop boasts an incline angle of 65 degrees and at speeds of up to 87mph this roller coaster is an experience like no other!

For lighter family fun you can entertain the family with the Alice in Wonderland and Wallace and Gromit rides plus Nickelodeon Land covering six acres. For those looking for water fun the Sandcastle Waterpark is an indoor waterpark in an 84-degree tropical climate, whatever the weather. There is loads to see and do in the Fylde but don't forget for those who enjoy rambling and walking the Lake District is only a short hours drive away. From 29th August to 9th November, Blackpool Illuminations sees this seaside city of fun still buzzing with excitement and laughter long after other resorts have gone into winter hibernation. The Blackpool Illuminations consist of almost every kind of light display you can imagine: lasers, neon, light bulbs, fibre optics, searchlights and floodlighting. As you can imagine there is so much to entertain the family that you could not possibly fit it all into one trip.

About Frances Findlay

We have had a business in Kefalonia for almost 20 years. We had two children and now live both in Kefalonia and the U.K.. It is a family run business, building and managing villas. We manage, clean and maintain all our villas to a very high standard. This property was purchased as a home base and as we only are in the U.K. for a period of time, we decided to holiday let it when we are away. It is located in an ideal area close to many tourist attractions and yet far enough away to be a quiet get away.

Frances Findlay purchased this bungalow in 2012

Just what I expected!

  • 4 of 5

We had a busy few days planned visiting family. The house was fine for us, a short(ish!) walk to Daughters. My partner brought a hair dryer, to be fair none was mentioned on the site and none was provided, can't be fairer than that! I snore terribly, apparently, so my partner ended up in the bunk bed but I had plenty of room! There are a few areas where an upgrade would be useful, a better light to go into the garage for the washing machine/ dryer/freezer as I discovered the step when I was heading for the opposite wall! LOL. We used none of the mentioned white goods so cannot say anything about them, apart from the Freezer had quite a bit of stuff in it ( Chips, fish, peas Etc.) and we were not sure if it was meant to be available for us or had been left by previous guests.Perhaps a bigger telly, but I don't watch much, just an observation. For the price and what the owners supply, absolutely no problem, very happy and will seek to book next time.

Totally lovely holiday. The bungalow was lovely with great access to shops and beautiful surroundings. The pub less than a mile away does the most fantastic food. We will definitely be booking again

Clean, spacious and bright.

  • 5 of 5

Ideally located for exploring the Blackpool and St Anne's and Fleetwood area. A short drive to any of the surrounding towns. The house is situated in a quiet residential area with a local shop a couple of minutes walk away. Five minute drive to the supermarket. We'll definitely be back.

New Year's Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely bungalow. It's ideally situated to explore the area. We didn't use the car at all! We walked to the Village which has everything you need. We walked to the Promenade in Cleveleys which takes approx 1hr and also walked to The Wyre Estuary Country Park approx 25 mins walk. The dogs loved it and we feel completely relaxed after a busy family Christmas. Thank You France's for letting us stay! 🙂

Fab time

  • 4 of 5

Great property in a lovely residential area. Plenty space and well equipped. Only downfall was the wifi didn't work and my kids complained that the trampoline in the pictures wasn't there. However they wouldn't have had time for it with all the fun things to do in nearby blackpool which was a 20 minute drive away. I would definitely come back to this property again.
