  • "This apartment was excellent, immaculately clean, comfy beds, and every thing you needed supplied."

    The welcome pack was great, the lemon cake was to die for! It's in a great location round the corner for every shop you will ever need. The only down fall is they are renovating the property next door. Tuesday night it was gone 7.30pm before they finished. Thursday morning they started at 6.45am. It would have been nice to have been forewarned when booking as we have a very nervous dog who was upset by the noise. Its our understanding that the property being renovated is owned by the same people of ferry view

    Hi, I am so sorry about the noise being made downstairs. The noise has now stopped but it was unfortunate that you had to listen to it. I would have forewarned you but I didn’t know it was going to happen as I am renting it out to someone who is going to open a kitchen & bathroom shop but I had no idea what they were planning to do and when. Luckily the noise has now stopped and if you ever return, it will be a quiet shop. I am so sorry once again but I’m pleased you enjoyed the cake! Property Owner

    The accommodation was great, clean and comfortable with amazing views. It was decorated and fitted out to the highest standard. Knott End was delightful with a full range of shops and a great pub, The Bourne Arms. They welcomed our greyhounds wholeheartedly and we met many lovely locals, the people are so friendly. We will definitely be back!

    Thank you so much for this lovely review. We are looking forward to your return and Claire, the lady next door, said you were lovely people! X Property Owner

    The Kitchen was well equipped and had microwave, dishwasher, fridge / freezer, iron and oven. Up to the first floor there was a lovely living room with a good size TV and comfy sofa. The views over the bay were lovely. Two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, all very clean and modern. The village was lovely with a good range of local shops. Will definitely be back.

  • "Beautiful Ferry View what a lovely cottage with amazing views from the windows."

    There was everything we needed for a comfortable stay a lot of thought has obviously gone into it a credit to the owner. Nice welcome pack especially the yummy cake very much appreciated. We had a lovely stay lots of walks and shops just around the corner what more could you want. Shame the path to the beach was so muddy and slippery so we couldn’t access it safely but our favourite Cleveleys Rossall Beach was only a short drive so it didn’t spoil it too much. Will definitely be back.

    Went to Fleetwood a few times and the dogs loved it. Fabulous views from the upstairs lounge.very comfortable stay. Lovely place to stay and with my two poodles was a godsend. I will be back. Thanks again for a lovely stay. Sue x Ps my only slight problem was having to lift my poodle up and down the stairs forthe living room. As he had cruciate ligament operations and can no longer do stairs. This would have been good to know in advance. But hes only small. So we managed it well.

    Handy for the amenities of the small village. One excessively minor point. A more up to date and informative welcome pack with details on the ferry and things to do locally. Including details of the rubbish disposal, how to operate the dishwasher, local walks, etc etc. Other than that an enjoyable stay.

  • "We have been using Sykes for 7 years now and this could have been one of our best stays."

    Located right on the beach, the house was warm, welcoming and spotless. The welcoming package was lovely too (especially the homemade cake). Shirley also took the time to message us to ask how we had settled in which was really nice. We had 2 young children aged 10 and 6 and managed to fill a whole week with activities for them too. The house is not far from Fleetwood where you can cross over on the ferry and Blackpool where we had 4 days of jam packed activities. This is a fantastic house to stay in if you want the quiet with alot of walks and it isnt too far from other towns with plenty to do. The views from the house are fantastic too. The house was well equipped with all that you would need for homecooking if you don't want to go out for food constantly. 5 stars for this property and location.

    Thank you so much for this lovely feedback. I’m so happy you had a good stay and managed to pack all those activities in!!! I hope to see you again soon and can I say I especially loved the feedback from your children in our guest book!!! Thank you again xx Property Owner

The property

Nestled at the centre of the quaint seaside village of Knott End-on-Sea, Lancashire, lies this delightful holiday home, Ferry View.

Located right on the beachfront and boasting great positioning to nearby amenities, this charming property is perfect for families or even friends sharing, and offers everything you need for a relaxing, self-catered getaway.

Inside, be greeted by tastefully-designed interiors, which are on full display in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where delicious meals can be rustled up to be savoured at the dining table that enjoys views of the serene coastline.

As the night grows darker, gather in the plush, first-floor sitting room with your loved ones as you enjoy a film on the stylish, wall-mounted Smart TV, where an electric, flame-effect fire will keep you nice and warm, before retreating to one of two well-presented double bedrooms as the evening draws to a close.

If you fancy exploring your local area, stock up on supplies at nearby local shops without having to step foot in you car where you will find fresh local produce, stop for some pub grub at The Bourne Arms, or even grab some fish and chips from The Fisheries takeaway to be enjoyed on the seafront.

Garstang is a short car journey east, where visitors can spend time strolling around the tranquil spot of Garstang Marina, whilst those looking to make a day of it can head slightly further to the nearby Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a nature reserve home to scenic moorlands that are ideal for both walking and cycling.

The bustling seaside resort of Blackpool is also worth a visit whilst you're in the region, where the iconic tourist attractions of Blackpool Tower and Blackpool Pleasure Beach amusement park offer a day's worth of entertainment for the whole family.

All of this and more await during a stay at Ferry View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
