The seaside towns of Cleveleys (with it newly designed promenade) and Fleetwood with the pier and harbour are only a short drive away. A ferry trip from Fleetwood takes you across to The Isle of Man daily and is around 4 hours. Blackpool is a fantastic seaside town with attractions for all ages. The Blackpool tower is a must to view the whole area and was inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It rises to 518 feet 9 inches. The Blackpool Tower Ballroom is world famous for its unique sprung dance floor and spectacular architecture. The Blackpool Tower Dungeon is the ultimate thrill-filled journey through 1,000 years of Lancashire’s murky past and finally there is the Tower Circus with trapeze artists, clowns and much more. Blackpool pleasure beach is great for those looking for the thrill of a lifetime, with the Big One rollercoaster at a nail biting height of 235ft. The first drop boasts an incline angle of 65 degrees and at speeds of up to 87mph this roller coaster is an experience like no other!

For lighter family fun you can entertain the family with the Alice in Wonderland and Wallace and Gromit rides plus Nickelodeon Land covering six acres. For those looking for water fun the Sandcastle Waterpark is an indoor waterpark in an 84-degree tropical climate, whatever the weather. There is loads to see and do in the Fylde but don't forget for those who enjoy rambling and walking the Lake District is only a short hours drive away. From 29th August to 9th November, Blackpool Illuminations sees this seaside city of fun still buzzing with excitement and laughter long after other resorts have gone into winter hibernation. The Blackpool Illuminations consist of almost every kind of light display you can imagine: lasers, neon, light bulbs, fibre optics, searchlights and floodlighting. As you can imagine there is so much to entertain the family that you could not possibly fit it all into one trip.

About Frances Findlay

We have had a business in Kefalonia for almost 20 years. We had two children and now live both in Kefalonia and the U.K.. It is a family run business, building and managing villas. We manage, clean and maintain all our villas to a very high standard. This property was purchased as a home base and as we only are in the U.K. for a period of time, we decided to holiday let it when we are away. It is located in an ideal area close to many tourist attractions and yet far enough away to be a quiet get away.

Frances Findlay purchased this bungalow in 2012

Relaxing Break Away!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this lovely bungalow situated in a quiet residential area of Thornton-Cleveleys. The shops and restaurants are approx 10-15 mins walk away and Cleveleys is approx a couple of miles away...there is also a convenience store round the corner. We did lots of walking with the dogs including a walk to the Wyre Valley Country Park which is approx 25mins walk away. The Owner is very helpful and responsive to any queries. We would recommend this property for anyone wanting a relaxing break away... We've already booked our next stay!

Quite nice

  • 4 of 5

The bungalow itself was excellent value for money if we had been a family of four. It would have been nice to have had a pro rata payment for just two people. However, it was homely and had everything I needed. My Mum who is nearly 91 had trouble with the front steps and a grab rail in the shower would add to safety aspect for people who have limited mobility. It was nice to be able to make ourselves at home after a day out. The buses are not very frequent and limits the places you can go to without changing somewhere. The wifi was good to have when I eventually worked out how to get it (I am not good with technology). It was very useful to have the owners mobile number for any emergencies. Thank you for a nice stay.

Perfect Holiday Home for a Family

  • 5 of 5

i have stayed here for 4 nights with my family and my first comment is that house is very clean , owner has provided almost everything you need at home. Its in a very safe and quiet locality, and u have Tesco / pubs / restaurant near by. House heating system / WI-FI runs very smooth. In the house you have ample space for a family. there are spare DVD and Books to enjoy in your free time. There are lot of wardrobe and shelf in house for your all luggage . kitchen is very well organised with Toaster / coffee maker / oven etc. I will certainly love to be back in this home if i need to visit blackpool. The only improvement i will recommend is to change bunk bed mattress, however mattress in main bedroom is good and if possible change TV to 30 inch size.

Bring your own light bulbs

  • 1 of 5

You will need to bring your own light bulbs because most were missing or didn't work. The owner didn't respond to the email, so don't expect anything like support. Add the fact that the TVs remotes had no batteries and the garden furniture was broken, with the garden unsafe for Childern with slippery moss covered patio and broken fench panels laying n the floor. This really is a place to avoid.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry your stay at our bungalow was not what you had in mind. Firstly regarding my response, I did not receive any communication either by email or telephone regarding your issues, if I had I would and always do immediately respond. Apologies for the broken garden furniture, unfortunately not all guests are respectful and this must have been overlooked. Batteries and light bulbs are perishables and can go or run out at any time, possibly some were missed.

Blackpool, Cleveleys and Fleetwood beaches are all around 10 to 15 minutes drive away. A good local bus service will take you to all these destinations from close to the bungalow.


A tram service will take you from Cleveleys (the nearest town) to both Blackpool and Fleetwood. Fleetwood ferry service runs daily to the Isle of Man which takes about 4 hours. Blackpool airport is around 30 minutes away.


Thornton village is around 10 minutes walk away and has a variety of restaurants and pubs to choose from along with a sports centre offering tennis and badminton courts for hire and a very well equipped gym. The nearest town of Cleveleys is about 10 minutes drive away, with is newly refurbished promenade and array of cafes and restaurants along it's main shopping street. The south end of the Lake District is approximately 45 miles away, for anyone who loves rambling and walking.

Further Details:

Fleetwood is famous as a fishing port and you can buy fresh from the market. Blackpool Sand Castle is the world largest indoor water-park and a must for those with children, as a great day out in an 84 degree tropical climate, with 18 water-slides and attractions, a family of 4 ticket will cost £45. Blackpool Pleasure beach is also a great day out for those looking for a thrill. Blackpool also has a zoo. Lytham Saint Annes has a boating lake.
