The house is a good size, bigger than an average 3 bedroom house I would say. Parking and entry were all fine. This house is about 20-25 mins drive from the main Blackpool attractions which was fine for us. Made a good base for our trip. House could do with some maintenance, lots of things were broken or missing and we had to defrost the freezer when we arrived as it was so iced up the door didn't shut and the drawers didn't open - so was unusable. I messaged the landlady to let her know that we had defrosted it for her and cleaned it out. But didn't get a reply,a thank you would have been nice considering it took the first hour or two of our stay. If you plan to cook anything other than ready meals/pizza etc I would bring some equipment as there wasn't a great selection of equipment, and what was there was just a bit random. we ended up with our toddlers drinking out of sherry glasses as it was that or a pint/wine glass lol. Some just normal glasses would be good, and more cutlery. and a plastic chopping board etc. Beds were comfy and house was warm enough and plenty of hot water etc. We struggled to get the shower in the bathroom to work and the shower in the on suite was a trickle, so we used the bath instead which wouldn't be my choice, but we made do for the week. Had no major issues though, was a nice sized house and we had a good week away. I would certainly consider renting this again if we were to come back to blackpool. It was hassle free booking and getting the key etc. Thank you and good luck
