The Claremont & St Annes

“Such Friendly Hosts”

“Lovely clean friendly little place. Been here for a week for a course for work and I could not have been more at home! Such friendly hosts.

Could not recommend them enough, for the money you will not find better.”

Micky – June 2016

Seaside Fun

St Annes remains a premier tourist destination for those wanting a little more refinement and comfort on their seaside break.

With its expansive beaches, pier, promenade gardens, 9 hole pitch’n’putt golf, cinema entertainment complex, swimming pool, boating pool, children’s play zones and beach huts there is an attraction for everyone.

St Annes Pier, beach & sand dunes

The towns of St Annes-on-Sea and Lytham are very cosmopolitan with a diverse range of independent shops, restaurants, coffee shops and bars.

Golfing Breaks

Golf is a big part of life in the towns of St Annes and Lytham and Royal Lytham St Anne’s Golf Course is still regarded as one of the finest courses in the world.

Royal Lytham has played host to The British Open on 11 occasions with the most recent being in 2012. It has also hosted the Ryder Cup twice, the Walker Cup in 2015.

In 2018, for the third time it is to welcome the Ricoh Ladies Open.

In addition there are three other golf courses; Lytham Green Drive, Fairhaven and St Anne’s Old Links all often incorporated as qualifying courses for other major competitions…

…making the area a major part of what is known as England’s Golf Coast.

RSPB Ribble Discovery Centre at Fairhaven Lake St Annes on Sea

At One With Nature

For birdwatchers the area is ideal with The RSPB Discovery Centre at Fairhaven Lake perfectly placed at the Ribble estuary the most important single river estuary in the UK.

With the Spring migration you can see godwits, dunlins and plovers. In the Summer redshanks and shelducks who have not left to breed can be seen.

Autumn, possibly the estuary’s busiest time with tufted ducks and pochards and occasional birds of prey such as the sparrow hawk taking advantage of returning flocks of waders.  Then on the high tides of Winter pintails and curlews calling.

Whichever season you visit there’s always active birds and other wildlife to be seen.

Activities & Fun

Many visitors to the area are attracted to stroll around the very popular salt water Fairhaven Lake positioned directly on the coast next to Granny’s Bay.

The area provides a variety of recreational facilities to suit all ages including for hire motor & rowing boats, crazy golf, tennis, bowling green’s, tennis courts (grass & hard standing) and for free children’s play areas and a skate and BMX park.

Then if you’re ready for a drink, ice cream or something more substantial pop in to the wonderful cafe.

Spitfire Memorial

At the far end of the lake an unusual sight of a full sized nine metre (30ft) long replica Spitfire aeroplane which “flies” over the lake.

This is built not only as a memorial to the pilots of the Second World War but also to the pilot who was flying the aircraft when it was shot down in 1941 Sgt Alan Lever-Ridings, who was known to have family connections in the area.

Fancy A Stroll?

Nordic Walking is very popular on The Fylde coast with currently ten organised walks each week. Alison is a participant herself and can help you to book with a leader locally. Don’t forget your Freedom Card.

There’s also several miles of beach and of course the stunning sand dunes that run the length of the St Annes coastline.

Blackpool Illuminates

A total contrast to St Annes and Lytham a few miles along the coast is the unique resort of Blackpool.

Famous for its Tower, three piers, miles of golden beach, a new promenade, comedy carpet, theatres, the Pleasure Beach and every Autumn the sparkling illuminations – there’s so much for all the family to enjoy.
