Lytham St Annes

Lytham St Annes is a seaside town built during the latter reign of Queen Victoria – by wealthy industrialists looking for a bolthole away from the city. Fast forward 150 years and the treelined avenues with pretty Victorian villas and mansions, vibrant gardens, boating lakes, and a long pier stretching out to sea, remain.

Your new home in Lytham St Annes sits next to the coast, offering panoramic sea views and golden sands, great access to green space and parks, with a world-famous golf course and recreational sports facilities as well as excellent schools. The town centre is lined with high street shops, independent stores, cafes, restaurants and pubs. And as in Victorian times, your new build in Lytham St Annes still benefits from excellent road and rail links to Blackpool, Preston, Liverpool and Manchester.

While your new home in Lytham St Annes is something of a golfer's paradise, you don't have to be a golfer to appreciate the benefits that its sporting status has brought to the town. With international tournaments and a world-wide reputation, Lytham St Annes has a strong local economy and that in turn has ensured that the town’s businesses and independent retail sector thrive for the benefit of all.

The town centre is a brilliant barometer of the area's prosperity, with lots of supermarkets, high street shops and quirky independents, so close to your new build. Lytham St Annes has no shortage of places to eat, drink and watch the world go by too. Head to the seafront at St Anne's Beach and enjoy the pretty cultivated gardens and flowers, the miles of sand and the long promenade with a pier, and enjoy your new home.

Get on the road from your new build

Pleasantly off the beaten track, but just a stone’s throw from the bright lights of Blackpool, your new home in Lytham St Annes gives you the quiet solitude you need, with great road links that can make travel and commuting easy. The town is served by three railway stations, Lytham, Ansdell and Fairhaven (for the Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club) and St Annes. Your new house also enjoys a good bus service provided by Blackpool Transport, connecting Blackpool, Poulton-le-Fylde and Fleetwood with villages along the Ribble Estuary..

If you’d like to drive, the M55 starts just south of Blackpool and makes road journeys to Preston (16 miles) and the M6 to Lancaster (33 miles) or Manchester (50 miles), easy. Should you wish to jet off from your new property, Manchester Airport (64 miles) and Liverpool John Lennon Airport (66 miles) are your nearest.
