Lovely property in excellent location

Only criticism was that the weather on the first day was lousy! Lovely property, great location for Poulton and the train into Blackpool.

A delightful cottage in good location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for a week as my daughter was doing work experience at Blackpool Zoo. The location was wonderful with less than a 15 min drive each day to the zoo. The cottage was very comfortable with a cosy downstairs and spacious upstairs with 4 good sized bedrooms. Our only complaint was the people staying below us had their tv on before 6am every morning and it was so loud we could make out the programmes! Poulton-le-fyde is a delightful little town with plenty of tea rooms and a Booths supermarket. A 2 min walk from the cottage is a sports centre plus 9 hole golf course, both of which our teenage son made full use of. If you want to visit Blackpool but don't want to stay in the centre then I would definitely recommend this cottage.

good size cottage for eight

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful week leading up to our daughter's wedding and the cottage was a good base for us.

There was a motley collection of crockery glassware and cutlery, some of which was badly scratched and chipped and nothing was a set of 8; but otherwise the kitchen was well equipped. Irons in the laundry room were un-useable - certainly on our wedding clothes.

The dining room has a lovely big table and was a good place to all sit round together.

The lounge is a cosy and pleasant room though the sofas are showing their age.

The two double bedrooms are delightful with clean comfy beds and bedding.

Bathroom and shower room also excellent, though I burnt myself on the heated towel rail - couldn't see a way to turn it down.

The cottage is only a short walk from Poulton town centre, park and railway station, which was ideal for us, and a short drive from the beach at Cleveleys.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that the cottage wasn't up to our usual standard. Just so that you are aware we have recently replaced the sofas in the lounge. We have a nice leather 3 piece suite now. I have asked my housekeeper to investigate the glasses and crockery to make sure we have a set of 8 - any chipped or scratched glasses will be thrown away. I was also unaware of any issues with the iron. I know I left my own personal iron the last time I was there, it was a good quality steam iron. so I'm surprised that you coudn't find one suitable. I will, however, ask my housekeeper to check them and replace where necessary. Thank you for bringing these matters to my attention. I am pleased it did not spoil you overall enjoyment.

Poulton-Le-Fylde is just 15 mins in land from the Fylde Coast in Lancashire North West of England. 15 mins drive to popular tourist resort of Blackpool, Cleveleys and Lytham. Blackpool has numerous tourist attractions such as the famous Pleasure Beach, splashland aqua park, zoo, illuminations, 3 piers, the golden mile, miles of sandy beaches, many theatres, Funny Girls etc The north west coast is England's Golf Coast being home to 3 of the top-20 and seven of the top-36 courses in UK & Ireland. Three of the links courses are among the WORLD'S top-75! Highest concentration of championship links golf in the world! Take a trip to the countryside just 1/2 hr to Forest of bowland, 1 hr to Yorkshire dales & 1hr to the beautiful Lake district. For shopping, a 40 min trip will find you in the Trafford Centre Manchester or try Freeport Fleetwood for duty free shopping. Fancy skiing? Adjacent to Trafford centre is Chill Factore Manchester indoor ski slope. Liverpool & Chester also just 1hr away

Other Activities: Many attractions in Blackpool, Funpark,aquapark, piers, birdwatching in Wyre. Bowling, karting, countryside walks, traditional pubs, parachute jump

Golf: At the heart of England's Golf Coast & under 5 miles from Blackpool, there are 4 superb courses in Lancashire, located around Lytham and St Annes just 20 mins drive from Mulberry Cottage. Seaside links courses where the irresistible forces of sea, sand & nature combine to provide a challenge, second to none for dedicated golfers at all skills levels. Follow in the triumphant footsteps of golfing greats like Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros & Tiger Woods at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Course, regular home to the legendary Open Championship, where the world's best golfers do battle along its hallowed fairways, for the supreme award in British Golf. Since 1901, St Annes Old Links Golf Course has offered the purest of links experiences. Its fairways nestled between dunes & subject to the unpredictable coastal weather offer a demanding course as traditional & historic as they come. Fairhaven Golf Club has all the characteristics of a traditional links course, including a sand sub-soil, allowing year-round golf, whilst being entirely surrounded by trees & open farm land. It is not only a beautiful place to play golf but it lives up fully to its designation as a 'Championship' course. Lytham Green Drive Golf Club is a flat, parkland course with tree-lined fairways & good greens. It has hosted Open Championship qualifying rounds & is regarded as one of the best courses on the Fylde Coast. If all that wasn't enough just behind the cottage is the local course!!
