St Annes-on-Sea is a seaside resort which offers a contrasting atmosphere and style and is much more relaxed than its bustling neighborhood Blackpool, just along the road. In the opposite direction is the former fishing village of Lytham, with its tree lined streets and pavement cafes making a nice alternative.
The 3 star Inn on the Prom Hotel and Leisure Complex is situated opposite the south promenade and is perfectly placed for comfort and convenience. There is a restaurant, ballroom, comfortable lounges and bar. Hotel facilities include an indoor swimming pool, fitness facilities, spa treatment rooms and sauna. All bedrooms are en-suite and have television, telephone and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift.

Friday We set off for home taking the scenic road through the beautiful Lancashire Hill Country, legendary home of the ‘Witches of Pendle’ and one of the most unspoilt parts of England; we make a lunch stop in the historic town of Skipton with its bustling market before re-joining the motorway and heading south to return to our home area late afternoon.
