                      Lovely house

                      5 of 5
                      We stayed ay this property for an extended weekend. The location was perfect for our young ones-Ribby Hall Village just down the road, Blackpool,Lytham and St Anne's only 20 minutes away. The house is lovely- large and light, with plenty of room for us all. The children could play safely in the back garden. We wished we could have managed a longer stay. Perhaps next time! Thanks to the owners, who were very helpful. Highly recommended

                      Value for money, landlord was very helpful with questions prior to our arrival. Spacious flat in ideal location for the park and the city centre. Didn't have to drive anywhere. Decent facilities in the flat. Very comfortable stay.
