"Everything we could have wished for!"
We stayed at Blackbird Bungalow for 5 nights, with our 4 year old and 8 month old. The house had everything we needed for the girls - a lovely clean highchair, some plastic dishes in the kitchen, anti… More

"Fantastic home from home"
Brilliant accommodation for my husband and I and our 2 granddaughters aged 8 and 10. Lovely modern accommodation with great facilities. Lovely thick towels, great bedding, comfy beds. It was brilliant that the owners had provided so many little things like tissues, toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets, and plenty of cutlery, crockery, pans and cooking utensils. It was good to be able to park the car on the drive and close the gates. The location was just right for us - in a quiet suburb near to the lovely Lytham and then further up the coast to St Annes for the beach and boating lake. A short drive further up the coast is Blackpool which we visited most days - went to The Winter Gardens, Blackpool Tower, Pleasure Beach and Sandcastle Water Park. Managed to get free off road parking except for the centre of Blackpool where we used the multi storey car parks which we found very reasonable. Breakage deposit returned swiftly on return. Would definitely go back, even without the grandchildren.

Party consisted of Nannan and Grandad and 2 granddaughters aged 8 and 10. Blackbird Bungalow was perfect. Location was near to Lytham and St Anne's and Blackpool was a bit further - just how we wanted it. The equipment etc in the bungalow was first class - plenty of crockery, knives and forks, cooking pans etc as, with a dishwasher, you need more than just 1 of everything. It was also good that the owners provided mundane things like toilet rolls, bin bags, hand wash , dishwasher and washing tablets, spare bulbs and batteries. The furniture and bedding were lovely - and the beds were very comfortable. It was a home from home.
Not got any negative things to say - would definitely recommend this holiday home.
Can't comment on public transport as used our car to go everywhere. Found ample parking in Lytham and St Anne's for free and Blackpool was £8 to £10 per day in the multi storey car parks.
Best fish and chips were at "Yorkshire Fisheries" on Topping Street in Blackpool.

"Superb property-delighted with our choice!"
We were absolutely delighted with this bungalow which was very well equipped over and above what you would normally expect. Situated on a pleasant road within easy reach of St. Annes sea-front. Would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Just back home from a short break at Blackbird. There were 3 adults and two young children. Everybody loved this bungalow. Modern decor, clean and attention to detail paid in every room. Even hooks in the bathroom to hang towels and clothes on!! I've always found this small detail bugs me in most all other holiday homes we visited, but not at Blackbird - the owners have thought of this. The children loved putting the food out to feed the blackbirds, and then sat for ages looking out of the kitchen doors waiting to see them. It really does feel like a home from home. Good location, easy to get to all attractions etc.
Weather was a bit mixed, but I had done my research beforehand, with the children in mind.
Harry's Soft Play, at one of the YMCAs, is absolutely brilliant. The best soft play we've ever been to. Park View playground, off the road facing the windmill, is excellent with great facilities, and one of the best playgrounds the children have used. Would definitely book this bungalow again if looking to stay in this area. Thanks to the owners for the thought and care they have put into this holiday letting.
