Stayed with family for two nights to see old friends. Really nice village with pubs, butcher, baker ..... and a few really good restaurants. A very nice small cottage with a pullout twin cot to accommodate a family of five comfortably.
I recently stayed at the Vine Cottage on a trip back to Lancashire to visit my family. I was originally looking for a basic B and B but I am so thankful I stumbled upon this gorgeous cottage. It is beautifully renovated, very clean, and truly felt like a home. As I was not on a sight seeing holiday I spent a considerable amount of time at the cottage. It was the perfect place for me to have people over to visit, cook, or just watch TV. It really did feel like my little home for nine days. It is in a fantastic location for getting around the Fylde and Lancashire in general. Gt. Eccleston is a lovely English village. I grew up in this area and so it was wonderful to revisit some of the shops and pubs. I especially enjoyed taking walks in the countryside. The Courtyard Cafe in the village, which is also owned by Emma and Jez, is very quaint and the perfect spot for afternoon tea. These guys know how to take care of people. I absolutely loved my time at Vine Cottage and highly recommend it for a short or long stay. I will be back!!
We had a lovely little break away. Cottage was fantastic and had all we needed for our stay. After a visit to the Blackpool tower and Madame Tussaud's we head to the vine cottage. It took about 25 minutes in traffic. When we got there is was a nice surprise to have coffee and fresh milk waiting for us. Everything was thought of and felt like a home. We spent the evening at the illumanations and tucking into a nice Indians at a little town near by.
The following day we went to the pleasure beach, which the boys really enjoyed. Got a tram to the north pier then walked along the beach enjoying a donkey ride along the way. After a long day we decided to get a take away and all sat round the table together and the boys had a game of monopoly (another nice touch) early night in the super Cosie bed. Overall we had a super break and would defo stay at vine cottage again.
We've just got home from a fantastic stay. Our 6 year old wanted to do the sights and fun of blackpool and our 8 week old (and mummy and daddy) wanted the peace and quiet! Great Eccleston is far enough away from the late night noises but close enough for all the day time fun.
The cottage was a perfect size, clean and we'll decorated. Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer!!
The owners also own the caffe in the village which does a fab breakfast! X
Would like to thank emma for a lovely two night stay in her spotlessly clean cottage.Had everything in the cottage that you need and great communication that made everything straight forward.Lovely little village just around the corner with good pubs cafe and a bakery that is fab!
