We've had another fabulous weekend with Sam and Shirley at The Cranstone. Just what we needed! Lovely to just sit and chat if we wanted, meeting their friends, which most of their guests are introduced as! They also have a steady stream of guests who have previously stayed there popping in to see them while they are in Blackpool for... More

Room is very cosy and clean. Stayed for 1 night and we had a lovely stay, good location not too far from pleasure beach. But the highlight would be shirley and sam, they are the nicest host. They are very accomodating and made us feel welcome.. Breakfast was fantastic.. Cant fault anything.. Highly recommended!

Shirley & Sam have a fantastic B&B in a great location. They are situated a very short walk from the seafront with Blackpool South train station also in close proximity. Transport links are great in terms of travelling from South - North; jump on the seafront tram! Shirley, Sam & Mandy are very welcoming and really make you feel at... More
