“Lovely little cottage, great location.”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Tucked away down a little pathway this really is a hidden gem. The location is perfect, minutes from Lytham town centre and from the windmill. It is small but very nicely done. Very clean and comfortable with everything you need. The wine and flowers on arrival are a lovely touch.

“Perfect spot”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our group of 2 parents and 2 adult sons stayed at Shrimper's Cottage for one week as part of a golf trip to 3 courses in the area. The Cottage was just as advertised. It looks to have been recently redecorated, instructions for appliances were available (helpful for Americans using UK appliances) and the beds and pillows were very comfortable.
On our arrival we found milk in the fridge, coffee & tea available with biscuits, champagne AND a bouquet of roses on the table. The spaces were small but the 4 of us were extremely comfortable.
Lytham is a lovely coastal village. We enjoyed our stay particularly because of our wonderful accomodation.

“Shrimpers Cottage is an absolute Gem that I would highly recommend”
Reviewed 21 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Shrimpers Cottage is a real gem. Perfect location close to town centre - but with an air of tranquility. Much thought has gone into furnishing this spotlessly clean property which is bright and fresh and impressively stylish, with everything of high quality. The fresh flowers and bottle of wine to greet guests on arrival is a nice touch. I will definitely be returning.

“Clean comfortable accommodation, in ideal location.”
Reviewed 28 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We had a great stay in Shrimpers Cottage, and was greeted by Richard who showed us around the property, and recommended a number of local restaurants.
The property was spotlessly clean, and exactly as described, in a quiet location, however, only a stones throw from the shops and facilities of Lytham.

Within 1 minutes walk was a fish & chips shop, and a Wetherspoon pub, and a great supermarket, Booths, was only another minutes walk away.

Overall a great place to stay for Lytham or for the wider area. Highly recommended.

“Lovely holiday”
Reviewed 27 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The cottage was lovely. It is in a great location just 5 minutes to the town centre, supermarket and windmill. Richard was very friendly and helpful, even saving us the closest parking space. My only criticism (and it issmall) wis that there wasn't much information in the cottage about what to do in the area, I have previously found this useful as having two dogs with us some of the places are out of bounds. For those with dogs the Queens hotel is great, you can even have them with you in the restaurant and it is a10 minute walk from the cottage.

Reviewed 23 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Shrimpers cottage is a real home from home, we were warmly greeted by the owner
Richard. The cottage was spotlessly clean and a lot of thought has gone into modernising
The cottage and the decor is lovely.

A nice touch was the. vause of fresh flowers and bottle of cava waiting for us.

We have been to many holiday cottages, shrimpers is one of the best and in a great
Location. We have already booked for next year.

person found this review helpful

Not being sure what to expect and after a tiring train journey and a taxi driver who didn't speak much English, I was utterly thrilled when I stepped inside Shrimpers Cottage. Flowers, wine, biscuits, and Richard's smiling face greeted me - it was just what I needed! Delightfully modernised but still retaining a lot of charm, spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished, warm and welcoming and in a secluded but easily accessible spot - it was perfect and local friends and family who came in to see me were most impressed. I hope to be back there soon!
