It was more luck than judgement that our search for a place to stay for a couple of nights hit upon this B&B. However, what a stroke of luck. John is the perfect host. Life is laid back and you can come and go as you wish in the wonderful establishment. We came to Blackpool to experience the Tower Ballroom....

Great location within walking distance of the tower/shops. Great host, very friendly. Great breakfast, really sets you up for the day. House isn't a new house and has the traits of its age. I would most certainly return.
