“Absolutely Outstanding!”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have just returned from a short break at Shrimpers and it was quite honestly one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in and we've stayed in a lot! The standard of furnishings was excellent, coupled with comfy beds, quality linen and a welcome pack of treats including fresh flowers, biscuits, milk and even a very well received bottle of Prosecco! Richard the owner came to see us on our first day to check that we'd settled in and what a nice man he was. Day two of our stay turned out to be the hottest day of the year with temperatures reaching 30 degrees and to help make our stay more comfortable, Richard brought us a brand new fan which was an absolute godsend! The cottage is extremely well located for all that Lytham offers, but tucked away to ensure a peaceful stay. We enjoyed our time at the cottage so much that we tried to re-book for later in the year, but someone else had already beaten us to it, however, fortunately Richard has another property just around the corner, so we are all set to got there instead! If you visit Shrimpers I can guarantee you won't be disappointed and will probably leave wanting to return as soon as possible, just as we did this morning!

“A cosy well stocked cottage in an excellent location”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage is very well presented with excellent first impressions. The welcome treats were much appreciated. It was very comfortable and cosy. While it is very close to the town, the cottage is in a very quiet location which suited us perfectly. Lytham is a very clean town with lots of facilities including good shops and restaurants. We enjoys long walks along the promenade with great views.

“Super Shrimpers”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Have just spent a lovely relaxing weekend at this Super little cottage. Ideally located in the heart of Lytham but in a very quiet lane, no need to use the car at all. We were met by the owners who are very friendly and helpful and were just watering the very pretty small garden at the front of the property ( which we enjoyed sitting in having a glass of wine) The cottage is traditional but modern inside well equipped and well furnished, with lovely comfy beds. Thoughtful touches from the owners included, toiletries, beautiful roses, cava, luxury biscuits, tea, coffee and milk.
Lytham is good for self-catering with it's selection of shops and supermarkets (Booths, Tesco) also has many restaurants and cafes and not forgetting the fish and chips !and all in easy walking distance of Super Shrimpers Cottage.

“Couldn't fault it, cant wait to stay again......”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

So glad we found this place on Trip Advisor. Whilst it seems to be popular with long term 'letters' (I can understand why) we were were lucky enough to get to spend 3 nights here on a glorious sunny May Bank Holiday weekend. Richard met us at the property and made us welcome, parking is very close by and we just loved everything about it. So clean and well presented, lovely cotton bedding and everything you could need and very well looked after. Granted it being such a super weekend weather wise we didn't stay in the cottage as much as we maybe would have in the Winter months. But we did spend many an hour sitting out the front in the afternoon after a long walk wandering around Lytham. You are less than 2 minutes to the nearest pub (a perfectly acceptable Wetherspoons if that suits) 3-4 minutes to the prom and a good 5 minutes to the town centre so couldn't be more handy yet its still in a very quiet and peaceful location. Thanks for a great stay - it was the icing on the cake for our trip. Oh and you must try Italian restaurant NOVELLO very close to the cottage - best meal and service we have had in a long time! Thanks for the recommendation Richard :-)

Thanks Beccy for your kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage and with reviews like yours it Spurs us on to keep the cottage as nice as it is. Glad you enjoyed Novello I think it's one of the best restaurants in Lytham. I hope to see you both again soon.

“Lovely cottage, ideally situated.”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Decided to revisit our youth and go to the Blackpool illuminations so this cottage was ideal......just a few miles from Blackpool , away from it all but really close to interesting shops in Lytham and perfect for walks along the coast with the dog. The cottage was lovely and cosy, clean and well equipped. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Some lovely places to eat nearby, some of which allowed dogs. Would definitely recommend even though wifi wasn't working during our stay. (Quite liberating really!)

“Fantastic!!!!!”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife has stayed here a couple of times and due to work I could not go, this time I went and confirmed her previous statements!!! This place was fantastic full stop. From contact with the owner to directions to checking out, everything was so simple!! And then the cottage :-))) what a lovely environment with quality fixtures and fittings...only one problem.....we could only manage 3 nights and would have loved to stay longer...

WE WILL BE BACK!!!!
