Lytham, described as a coastal gem, with all of its charm and beauty is the ideal destination for a special break away or a family holiday – all year round. The dual seaside towns of Lytham and St Annes-on-sea bring together their coastal views, rolling sand dunes, well tended lawns, pretty parks and a beautiful boating lake to form a wonderful seaside resort, brimming with character.

This seaside haven is located to the South of Blackpool – whose World famous attractions, such as Blackpool Tower and The Pleasure Beach, are just a short journey away along the coast.

There is something to do for all of the family, whether you want a romantic walk along the picturesque coastline, a family day out to St Annes Promenade, a round of Golf at one of the World’s most famous courses or you’re drawn in by the bright lights and glitz of Blackpool.


Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club, one of the World’s most decorated Golf courses, has been a venue for the Open Championships for over 100 years – hosting the tournament a total of 10 times, most recently in 2012. This premier course has also hosted the Ryder Cup on two occasions.

If you’re looking to test your skills on a Major course, against the professionals and visitors from across the globe, then this challenging Links course is for you. Visitors to Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club are warmly welcomed all year round.

Royal Lytham isn’t the only Championship Golf course in the vicinity; St Annes Old Links – the sand dunes and westerly winds make this an unpredictable course, Fairhaven – this idyllic countryside course is used as a qualifying course for The Open Championship, and the beautiful Lytham Green Drive, which is host to several top class golfing events.

Food and Drink

Lytham is well stocked with fine dining bistros, restaurants, wine bars, traditional inns and real ale pubs – a unique range to suit all tastes.

For those with pets, we recommend the Queens Hotel - a pet friendly pub.

Lytham Beer Festival takes place in September, annually. It’s a chance to sample real ales, ciders and bottled beers from all over the World.


Since 2009, The Lytham Proms Festival has been an annual weekend musical event featuring such performers as Katherine Jenkins, Status Quo, Alfie Boe, Belinda Carlisle, Boyzone and Olly Murs. Each year the event takes place on Lytham Green, infront of the famous Lytham Windmill.

What our guests say

A lovely holiday in a lovely cottage! The peace and quite was just what we wanted, and close enough to shops and restaurants. Thanks Sue, we hope to visit again when the weather might be better!! Special thanks to Ian for his hospitality on our arrival and his help throughout our stay.

The Mitchell Family

I was looking for somewhere quiet to stop for a few days and I certainly found it here at Garlicks Cottage. The location is perfect for the shops etc close by, but in a beautiful quite spot. I certainly hope I can find the time to come back again. Thanks Sue for everything.
