in Lytham St Annes
Start the day with stunning views from your room before popping down for a fantastic breakfast then head out amongst the coastal elements and have fun!

The Carlton is a centrally located hotel in St Annes. There are loads of great things going on in and around St Annes. Not only do we have amazing sea views, a beautiful coastline and fresh sea air – there are plenty of great places to eat, be entertained and relax too!

Also nearby

Opposite the hotel are the minuature railway, pitch and putt and the Victorian rock gardens. Just beyond is the RNLI Lifeboat station and boating lake with pedalo’s and zorbing. Then there is the unspoilt sandy loveliness of St Annes beach and the Pier with traditional amusements and ice-cream parlour.


Our favourite things to do include exploring the sand dunes, flying kites, kite surfing and beach combing. Look for cosy secluded coves tucked within the sand-dunes. Our friends Stuart and Zoe operate the beach huts and you can hire them by the day which is great fun!


Further south experience Fairhaven Lake and the RSPB Ribble Discovery centre. A haven for wild birds and great for rock-pooling and mud-dipping in Grannie’s Bay next to the Lake.


The lively resort of Blackpool is just a 15minute drive north up the coast, with its many attractions.

If you would like to dine in town we would like to recommend our favourite eateries in St Annes and we can book your table from the hotel if you wish.
