Location & Lifestyle

The Fylde Coast has a huge amount to offer with its rural countryside, country pubs and its colourful village greens, not to mention the miles of coastline.

Within the local area you’ll find a wide range of theatres, visitor attractions, parks and open spaces, the Golden Mile and illuminations (Autumn). The Fylde is a golfers’ paradise with renowned courses such as Royal Lytham and St Annes, which has hosted the British Open on numerous occasions. You can relax in a choice of tea shops, cafes, stylish restaurants and award winning hotels.

The area is also host to an annual music festival on Lytham Green, attracting some of music’s biggest artists. Slightly further up the coast is Blackpool, the UK’s largest holiday resort, which is currently set to receive a £300 million investment to aid with construction of the UK’s largest outdoor theatre and entertainment area within the UK. The resort also boasts the Pleasure Beach and other famous attractions.

The Fylde Coast has seen an increase in demand, due to the effect of the pandemic. Purchasers are now looking for property close to natural open space, of which the Fylde Coast has an abundance of outstanding beaches, sand dunes, parks and golf courses.
