Where is the lodge?

The lodge is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac (Grosvenor 22) within the Marton Mere holiday park which is only three miles from Blackpool’s vibrant centre.  It is approximately a ten minute walk from main amenities/complex.

The lodge is perfectly placed so you can relax and enjoy the facilities on the holiday park, whilst still being close enough to Blackpool, and Lytham St. Annes, if you fancy venturing further afield.
