July 2015 we arrived after relinquishing jobs in teaching and Health, Safety and Environment to realise the dream of running our own business. Georgina’s family, originally from Manchester, 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. Jamie is our resident breakfast chef and makes a mean poached egg but it’s his full English breakfasts that are to die for. We live here with our dog Ruby and cats Phoebe Sou, Jazzy Fat Pants and Po (Coco).
Wanting to provide a service for you our guests like we would want to receive ourselves we set about our mission. Even if it means taking the crazy step of appearing on the Hotel Inspector to achieve it! (Not seen it? Series 15 Ep2 – CHANNEL 5 #whostheboss #hotelinspector)
The Sea Croft was a big challenge for us as are all old buildings. We have put heart and soul into what feels like a restoration project at times. Built around the turn of the 1900s, originally a gentleman’s residence, The Sea Croft was converted into a traditional seaside boarding house in the 1930s. During that time it would have had around 10 or 11 bedrooms. With the onset of the 70 and 80s the Sea Croft was further developed to give en suite guest rooms we know and love today. It is the last one remaining as guest accommodation not just on the block but the whole street! This is why we need you to keep the Sea Croft legacy going.
Can’t wait to meet you!
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.
