Had a lovely day out at Lytham Hall.We started the day with a Bacon barm in the cafe, service was really quick and the food was very good, (not stingy on the bacon) at an excellent price. ! Then we headed to the Hall which is a beautiful Georgian mansion and the excellent volunteers entertained us with a wealth of interesting stories about the former residents. We had pre booked afternoon tea and I can thoroughly recommend it, finger sandwiches crisps salad scone with jam and cream tiny delicious cakes and a large pot of tea at half the price you would pay in some establishments. Couldn"t resist buying some plants from the huge selection on offer,. Even the sun shone !!!

We were honestly so impressed with our visit yesterday. We spent 2 and a half wonderful hours exploring the grounds and the house.
It's a lovely little site, small enough to spend just a half day there and still see everything (we didnt visit the shops or stay for anything to eat/drink but you could string it out to a full day I guess if you are having lunch there or doing a picnic or looking in the antique shop).
Plenty of parking available and very reasonably priced at £1.50 for 3 hrs parking.
We walked the whole grounds first which took just over an hour to see the gardens, climb the mount, walk round both ponds, see the dovecote, visit the animal hub and fruit/vegetable patches. Fantastic view of the house from the top of the mount, and really enjoyed seeing the animals especially the goats who were so inquisitive and vocal!
The house was the real gem though, £6 each to enter (very reasonable price vs. National Trust properties, especially when you consider you pay nothing to visit the grounds!) Your volunteer staff are an absolute credit to you, very friendly and welcoming and super knowledgeable. We were the only visitors in the house at the time and they spent ages with us in each room telling us really interesting stories about the Clifton family and their life and the history of the house. They were so engaging it felt like we got our own private guided tour! We've visited a lot of NT properties and never had such an engaging & interesting experience in a house. All staff were great but the young lad downstairs was particularly brilliant - he was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable, my partner sometimes gets bored when visiting these places and ends up just wanting to whiz through them quickly but he was actually really enjoying it and started asking lots of questions and the young guy answered them all and more. The older man upstairs also gave some really interesting insight into how the property had been taken over and how it's being run now and plans for the future.
We have already recommend you to my parents who visit blackpool each year and they look forward to coming.
Thank you for a lovely day.

I first visited pre lockdown and after a walk round the grounds had lovely coffee and cake in the cafe. Returned today and they’ve been busy, with the main drive newly resurfaced and a new parking system in place with contactless card payments accepted. It’s only £1 for 2 hours, an absolute bargain, so you’ll have more to spend in the cafe or on the lovely plants for sale. The grounds are lovely to wander round. I’ve not been in the hall itself but from the photos it’s impressive and you can take a tour if you wish. Feeling very lucky to have this place within a 10 minute drive.

The most horrific experience walking my dogs this am in the grounds of the hall. The grounds are covered in snowdrops a feature of Lytham Hall. I've come here 13 years in a row never an issue. The grounds are a common walk for dog walkers and visitors. This am walking with my dogs I got screamed, shouted and abused by the very GM of this place a Mr Anthony Peter. Walking my dogs he decided to start a tirade of abuse towards myself for allowing my dogs to walk through the snowdrops fields. How could I not when 99% of this place is covered in snowdrops?? Mr manager got out of his car screaming abuse at me : get off here right now. Leave this place immediately. How dare you walk through the snowdrops! How dare you .. get off now.you are barred.. Get your dogs off now..he subjected me to nearly 10 minutes of screaming, chasing me all over the place running in my face, when I was just trying to walk away as my dogs were terrified by him, yet he continued to pursue me and try corner me numerous times. As I tried to get away he drove his car through the snowdrops and the grass fields trying to corner me and continuing having a screaming hysterical session at myself and my dogs. Omg..never I have encountered such crazy behaviour from anyone. All I did was walking my dogs where everyone else do. If dogs are not allowed in the snowdrops than that should be clearly signed posted. There is not a post saying no dogs allowed. But besides that the attitude of this man is at least disgusting. Threatening, out of order and utterly unacceptable . As a manager how the hell do you treat visitors like this? A simple polite: pls remove the dogs would have been enough for me to walk my dogs a different route. But when i just got screamed at unreasonably and threatened with That behaviour I'm sorry but this is not on. Absolutely disgusting.simply no need and this guy Mr manager has serious issues. I have raised a complaint further and I have a video of Mr manager screaming at me. Unbelievable..if I could give a subzero review I would, purely on the back of the attitude of Mr Anthony Peter gm of this place. I would be ashamed and embarrassed if you were my employee. You would cost me my business reputation. Absolutly shocking I hope your employer will review this and act accordingly.

Just enjoyed afternoon tea in the Georgian Hall . Very ,very enjoyable , harking back to years gone by ( Yup , I'm old enough to remember ) . Log fire warming the room , hushed speech , staff attending to your table discreetly & politely . The food was outstanding , began with a tomato , goat cheese & chilli soup . Very subtle chilli heat , with no one flavour over powering the others . Warm broccoli tarts , yorkshire pud with beef & horseradish , prawn salad , sandwiches & something I normally avoid desserts ,BUT a very fine selection of warm puddings , macaroons , a splendid lemon meringue & finished with a warm fruit scone , jam and clotted cream . all washed down with lashings of tea and more to follow if requested . We live close by to Lytham Hall and regularly visit & enjoy the cafe and courtyard , something of an oasis , that can become very busy . Visit & enjoy

Visited today for a friend's catch up lunch.
I have been before, and that was the reason we went today, as it was great.
Different experience this time.
Ordered at tge till point..glasses held with fingers in each glass - ewww..this is VERY off putting.
I had a jacket potato with prawns..the potato was miniscule, and very waxy..obviously microwaved.
The other order was a prawn sandwich, which was fine.
I honestly don't think mixing Christmas lunch specials and regular cafe visitors works..it was a bit crazy.
Not upto usual standard today

So we'd never even heard of Lytham Hall, even when we have visited the area. However by chance we came across it and we are so glad that we did.

It is important to remember that this amazing place is run predominantly on Volunteers with a tiny, tiny paid team.

You arrive at the hall and pass through the beautiful formal archway before meandering the long driveway, as you approach the end the house comes in to view and its hard for it not to take your breath away, absolutely beautiful, looks as though it was built yesterday due to its stunning colour.

Driving past the house we park in the woodland car park just a short stroll from the courtyard.

The house is the only place you need a ticket, the grounds, animal hub, tea room and shop are all available to just walk through.

House: Remarkable. Very well presented with a fascinating history and the great thing is it's not fully renovated meaning there's more to see next time. The Clifton family were certainly an interesting lot.

Tea Room: Very efficient given it was an exceptionally busy day in the beautiful warm sunshine. Sandwiches were tasty and fresh and team very friendly.

Shop: A small shop with a limited offer but lots of nice Lytham Hall branded products such as jams, chutneys and more - a nice treat.

Gardens: I was absolutely blown away when I learnt they do not have a paid gardener and that it has all been done by Volunteers, absolutely remarkable. I have seen many National Trusts properties where there is a team of paid gardeners that do not come up to the standards of Lytham Hall - Fantastic!!

I was extremely impressed with the efforts that the team at Lytham have put in to this glorious property and they should all be incredibly pleased with themselves. I cannot wait to return!

Went to the outdoor theatre, show good, "set up"very good and well organised. However Lytham Hall can boast about having the rudest, most obnoxious stewards ever! Yes, you may only be quarter of a mile from the railway station, but if you're not local, you don't know that. We don't need you to "put on a special train" for us, but as I said, some signage would help. And for you all to stand together, wait for me to go to the loo, and then rip the p*ss out of me is a little bit like playground bullying. It's certainly not the standard of stewarding I've ever employed in my 30 years as a steward. I was tasked with seeing if the hall was available to be hired out. Turns out it is. Will I be pursuing that line of enquiry, what do you think? Your stewards have made sure that Lytham Hall has lost out on a potential regular booking 3-4 times per year.

Visited here while on holiday. It is a pleasant walk through the grounds up to the hall. We sat in the garden where the cafe is, there are plants for sale which I found very expensive, £28 for a lupin!!! We had a cream tea with jam & cream, the scones were tasty and moist. A whole day could be spent here on the walks around

This was a pre-booked group tour with afternoon tea. The tour was due to start at 11.00am but terrible trafic on the M6 delayed many members by almost an hour. The Curator who let the tour provided tea / coffee until everyone arrived and gave a useful presentation of the history of the Hall before embarking on the tour. Few of the contents are originally from the Hall but they were carefully collected and installed to display what it would have been like "in the day". Unlike many stately homes, you were allowed to touch the exhibits and sit on the furniture chairs. Most welcoming!
The afternoon tea was as good as any we have had, with freshly brewed tea in vintage tea pots contantly being renewed, Full marks!
