Name: St Annes Beach Apartments
Location: United Kingdom
For a classic British seaside holiday, with a luxurious slant, Lancashire’s Fylde Coast offers St Annes Beach Apartments. Here you can have your own seafront holiday apartment as well as your own private beach hut. A 4-hour drive from London, or alternatively a train journey coupled with a brief 8-minute stroll will see you there in under 3 hours!
The décor has a clean, fresh, modern feel with a stylish nautical influence. Several of the apartments have stunning sea views overlooking the beautiful sand dunes and some also include a private balcony or access to the large garden. The owners are very welcoming and have clearly put a lot of effort into making the apartments feel like a home-from-home. Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine add to the welcoming touches and mark the exceptional hospitality you can expect to receive throughout your stay.
There are 7 luxury apartments, most of which have 2 bedrooms and sleep 4 people, or can accommodate up to 6 people with use of the sofa bed. The latest apartment to be launched, Sandpipers, is a little larger with 3 bedrooms spread over 2 levels. All the apartments also feature a spacious open plan lounge area including a very well stocked kitchen / diner, with a bathroom completing the space. There is free on-site parking and high speed internet access is available throughout.
To turn your stay into something extra special and unique, you can also hire one of their beautiful beach huts that lie right on St Annes Beach. Having your own private beach hut feels so quintessentially English and makes your stay a real sea-side escape. The beach huts feature a removable ship’s table, bench seating for 3 people, 4 folding chairs as well as mains electricity and a fitted kitchen. The décor is beautifully in tune with the apartments, making them truly the most comfortable way to visit the beach! Tip: If you’re staying for a full week (7 nights) you can enjoy complimentary St Annes Beach Hut day rental, subject to availability at time of booking, however if you’re staying for a shorter period simply enquire about availability and prices of the huts when you book your apartment as they really do add to your sea-side experience.
The apartments are of course perfect for self-catering, but should you just fancy someone else doing all the hard work (it is a holiday after all), a delicious range of homemade meals are available to order and will be all waiting for you in the fridge (worth remembering that the menu includes some delicious desserts and cakes!). If you prefer to eat out, there is a wide range of eating options in both St Annes and neighbouring Lytham.
The apartments are literally a stone’s throw from St Annes Beach, meaning there will be ample opportunity to make use of your beach hut and enjoy the beach. The apartments are also a short 5-minute walk from St Annes town centre, where you will find the Victorian pier, bandstand, boating lake, Promenade Gardens and miniature golf, as well as a wide selection of shops, cafés and restaurants. A 5-minute drive finds you in Lytham town centre, an attractive resort where you can browse the many boutiques and independent shops as well as enjoy the lively café culture. The apartments are also well located for a game of golf, with four championship courses located nearby. If you wish to venture further afield, the Lake District is also only an hour’s drive away.
It’s worth looking into what is happening in Blackpool during your visit. The city is just a 10-minute drive away and plays host to several events throughout the year, including the Air Show and the Fireworks Championship.
St Annes Beach Apartments really are your luxury home-away-from-home at the seaside. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible, leaving you ample time to simply relax and enjoy your beautiful surroundings.
