The Sea Croft & Us

We are Georgina & Jamie, welcome to the Sea Croft.

First a little about us. In July 2015 we arrived after relinquishing jobs in teaching and Health, Safety and Environment to realise the dream of running our own business.  Bonkers? Yes absolutely, our parents were shocked to say the least. Fortunately we had Georgina’s family background in hospitality to fall back on.

 
Originally from Manchester, Georgina’s parents were hotel owners so it was a natural step forward into entrepreneurship. Her parents Eveline & Fred had hotels on the Fylde coast for around 12 years and still make an appearance now and again, mainly for selfies after the Hotel Inspector aired. Jamie is our resident breakfast chef and co owner, he makes a mean poached egg but it’s his full English breakfasts that are to die for. We live here with our dogs Ruby & Jasper plus the cats Phoebe Sou, Jazzy Fat Pants and Po (Coco). A bit of a U-turn but sometimes if you don’t grab an opportunity you are always left wondering. Not us!
 
The Sea Croft was a big challenge for us as are all old buildings. This was not just the décor but the exterior, we have put heart and soul into what feels like a restoration project at times.  

The Sea Croft was built around the turn of the 1900s, originally a gentlemen’s residence, it was converted into a traditional seaside boarding house in about the 1930s.  During that time it would have had around 10 or 11 bedrooms.  With the onset of the 70s and 80s the Sea Croft was further developed to give the en suite guest rooms we know and love today. When we took over wise hoteliers said its a bit like a “J curve”, starts off great but then gets a lot worse before it gets better. Boy were they right! We had a lot of holes to plug shall we say, often literally. The one thing keeping us going was you, you coming to stay with us and your needs. It was a great driving force and we are pleased to say that in 5 and half years here the majority of rooms and bathrooms have been refurbished.

 
We value your business and want to provide you with a service we would want to receive ourselves. With that in mind we understand that the little things matter. We are known for not just our service, amazing breakfasts but our cleanliness and attention to detail. If you want a second opinion just watch the Hotel Inspector! (Not seen it? Series 15 Ep2 – CHANNEL 5 #whostheboss #hotelinspector).
 
We can offer our guests, modern stylish rooms with comfortable beds and that “at home” feeling with the knowledge you are being looked after. For our business guests, we have great Wifi and desks in our larger rooms for you to complete your work making the Sea Croft perfect for that “workcation”. Relax in our lounge and have a drink in our bar before heading out to sample one of St Anne’s amazing restaurants. Our mission is your relaxation, comfort and enjoyment.
 
The most unique thing about the Sea Croft? Well its us…. we do it differently, every guest matters.
 
Your room is waiting for you by the seaside, all you have to do it book!
 
Can’t wait to meet you!

Breakfast Room & Lounge Bar

Our Breakfast room is very versatile and can sit up to 20 people for breakfast and the capacity can be increased for special occasions.

It also doubles as a meeting room for 12+ with a breakout area behind in the lounge. As the breakfast room and lounge bar are combined, this means we have the flexibility to also host parties, catering to your bespoke needs. This includes evening meal and party menus. The benefit is your event is private and can be combined with accommodation for an inclusive package.  Please contact us direct for details.  Examples include Christmas Parties, Wakes, Theme Nights, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christenings and small Wedding Parties looking for either a mini moon or intimate setting for their wedding breakfast.

We have a fully licensed bar and stock a small range of wines, beers and spirits. This means if you are looking to add a little romance to your ‘staycation’ we can source and supply fizz according to your budget  and have it ready on ice in your room for when you arrive. If there is something you like, just tell us and we will do our best to get it for you.

Finally, (and this is our favourite) we offer Afternoon Teas and Prosecco Afternoon Teas that reflect the season with home bakes scones and cakes with lashings of Mr Bearman’s home made jam. This can be booked direct through our website.
