Around and About

Links View is close to the seaside town of Lytham St Annes in Lancashire. It is a favourite spot for everyone, from families with children to local retirees, making it a perfect retirement living choice.

Links View itself, as the name suggests, overlooks a golf course. St Annes Old Links is a 6907-yard Par 72 Championship links course founded in 1901. This beautiful course rightfully deserved its position as one of Golf World’s top 100 courses in England in 2021.

To the other side of Links View, you’ll find the local cricket club, making it the perfect spot to enjoy a typically British summer day. 

Beyond the golf and cricket clubs, Links View boasts idyllic coastal views. And with the famous lights of Blackpool in the distance, you’ll be smitten with this sensational slice of the British seaside.

A Popular Retirement Town

Ask most people where they would like to move to in their later life, and many will dream of retiring to the coast. With sea air, gentle strolls and seaside entertainment, it makes an appealing choice.

With its temperate climate, the Fylde coast draws many retirees, not just from the North West but from all over the country. As a result, St Annes offers endless groups and associations to join, often led by and aimed at the older generation. Volunteering, friendship, and community pride are important aspects of life all along the Fylde Coast. 

St Anne’s Town Centre

St Annes town centre is close to your apartment. It blends a charming old fashioned holiday atmosphere with smart, continental style shopping facilities. Full of Victorian buildings, you’ll find high street names and plenty of independent retailers side by side. And true to a British seaside resort, you’ll find the seafront with its pier, the attractive Ashton Gardens and promenade. There are even beach huts available to rent.

St Annes has plenty of local amenities including takeaways, cafes, supermarkets, and a train station. And for easily accessible days out, the RSPB Fairhaven Lake Visitor Centre located on the promenade offers boating, tennis, crazy golf, and lawn bowling.

Life on the Fylde Coast

St Annes is located on the Fylde Coast, an area with a strong sense of community pride, backed by magnificent views, glorious seafronts, and plenty of local history to explore.

You’ll be able to enjoy a variety of interesting events which take place each year. Local events include St Anne’s International Kite Festival and St Annes Victorian Christmas Festival and Light. Each local town holds summer galas, and further afield, you’ll find a superb choice of cinema, theatre, galleries, and events at Blackpool.
