  • "Had a lovely stay at Westwood House."

    We were there when the weather turned cold and had to message the owner a few times to turn the heating on. Later we found all the radiators were switched off, but we had already spent two days very cold. Very spacious kitchen area with a heated floor. It has some nice touches, but it does feel a bit like Inspector Gadgets house. For example the shower has 8 knobs to turn to get anything to work, with a multitude of different lighting patterns illuminating the shower head, not sure who would need that? Lights switch on and off as you walk around the house, which is actually quite useful, but disconcerting for the first few yards in the dark before they ping on. It has a tap that supplies boiling water instead of boiling the kettle, again useful, but my wife managed to put it into child lock mode and couldn't unlock it until my children showed her how. Every TV operates using a different set of A4 instructions and several controllers. Even the microwave needed an instruction manual. Bed squeaked like crazy when moving around, we've informed the owner, as I wouldn't want anyone else going through 7 nights of that. That aside, it's a lovely period property, and the owner was very friendly and tried to be helpful throughout. It just needs that extra touch to make it a home from home.

  • "We had a lovely stay in this well presented property."

    The house was furnished and decorated to a very high standard and communication with the owner was good. Location is excellent only 5-10 mins from Lytham town centre and 3 minutes to the sea front. Parking is on the street, so you don't always get directly out side the house but we managed to park somewhere on the same street each time.

  • "Every year we rent a property for our holiday and while we have been lucky to stay in some beautiful houses, this one is by far the best."

    The accommodation met our needs extremely well. The highlight being the beautiful family room with wonderful kitchen appliances including a hot and chilled water dispenser. We never had a problem finding a parking space outside the house and, as always, Lytham was a great place to visit.

  • "Initially when we booked on your website we were told private parking available for small car."

    However near the time this was changed to parking available on street. During our fortnight stay, twice we came home and found no parking on the street and had to park nearby, probably due to xmas shopping, but it meant a few minutes' walk in the ice.

  • "Gorgeous property."

    A real home from home. All the mod cons you could possibly want. Lovely and warm, comfortable and very clean. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk from the High Street, which has a number of boutique shops, main shops and loads of coffee shops and restaurants. You are spoilt for choice and can walk to all of them. A few minutes walk in the other direction and you are on the Prom. No issues with parking, always got a spot. Loads of places around to visit, we liked the mini golf at Fairhaven lake and trip to Blackpool to see the illuminations. Owner Christine lovely and very communicative. Would not hesitate to recommend or return. Five star stay thank you

  • "What a fabulous house, furnished and equipped to the highest standard."

    Situated in a very quiet location yet only a short walk to the promenade and the multitude of cafes, bars and shops in Lytham. The house was so clean and had a warm, luxurious and welcoming feel about it. A perfect place in which to relax and chill out. The owner, Christine, was so caring and genuinely wanted to ensure thar we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this holiday home and will certainly be back.

  • "Westwood House is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for our stay."

    It is within very easy walking distance of very many shops, restaurants, bars etc. The house was spotless and so so comfortable we didn’t want to leave, in fact had it been available for a few more days we would have stayed on. Lytham itself is a lovely little town with lots of local independent businesses. A trip to Lytham Hall is a really good idea. Also, I just want mention Christine the owner who was so very helpful and nothing was to much trouble. An absolute 5 star break. Can’t wait to go back Thank you

    Awh. Thank you Jane for such lovely feedback. Hope you come to Lytham again. Xx Property Owner

    The house is beautiful, very clean, great setting 2 minute walk to the lovely town. Very well equipped house, very high standard furnishings and great for 2 families as there are 2 large bathrooms and a toilet downstairs. The kitchen, living area is stunning with lots of light and leads in to a lovely, sunny garden. The neighbourhood is ver friendly and everyone is happy to chat. Lytham is a lovely town, fabulous restaurants or take seats if you want to stay at home. There is a great walk way from Lytham to St Anne’s, wide path for cyclists and walkers and safe for kids. Lovely park round the corner for people to enjoy the tranquil setting, there is a play park for kids, a cafe and bowling. There is a great park with tennis courts and crazy golf at Fair haven Lakes which also has a coffee wagon with great coffee and there is a kiosk with ice cream. Lots of ducks and swans there to look at. I have stayed in some lovely places in the world and this is definitely in my too 10 and worth a visit.

About the location


Blackpool 5.2 miles.

The seaside towns of Lytham and St Annes-on-Sea nestle along a picturesque stretch of coastline lined with pretty parks. For many centuries, the economy of this lovely area was dependent entirely on fishing until the beginning the Industrial Revolution, which resulted in the wealthy creating an affluent area, lasting until the present day. A short stroll from the Lytham seafront brings you to leafy Clifton Street, where you’ll find charming boutiques, restaurants and independent shops. Lytham Green, a strip of grass running between the shore and the main coastal road, is a notable landmark, overlooking the River Ribble towards the Welsh Mountains, and home to the restored Windmill and Old Lytham Lifeboat House museum. Those interested in craft ales can take a tour of the Lytham Brewery, whilst walkers and twitchers will adore the rolling sandy dunes of St Annes-on-Sea and the Ribble Estuary providing a safe haven for more than 250,000 migrating birds that return each winter. The area is internationally renowned for golf with four courses to choose from, the most notable being the Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, one of the host courses for the Open Championship. Traditional seaside pastimes can be enjoyed at St Annes-on-Sea with a pretty pier and charming little beach huts in an array of pastels offering visitors a unique, exciting addition for a day beside the sea. A short walk from the pier brings you to St Annes Square and Wood Street, where you'll find charming coffee shops, tea rooms, restaurants and independent shops. Lovely long strolls, sunny afternoons on the sand or fun-filled frolics in nearby Blackpool, Lytham St Annes is a charming coastal destination with plenty to offer. Boating, cycling, shopping and swimming can all also be enjoyed nearby, along with award-winning restaurants, traditional pubs and wine bars should you fancy celebrating. Whatever you want from your seaside getaway, Lytham St Annes is an ideal choice.
