We love to share information with parents in fun things to do in the local area including pregnancy to pre-school groups and classes in the local area of Lytham st Annes, but sometimes it is nice to get out for a pram friendly walk in Lytham. Today we share a guest post written by the fantastic Ashlie from Yummy Mummy and Me who are a bespoke sweet cone service custom made for any occasion. Today Ashlie shares her favourite pram friendly walks in Lytham.
The Best Pram Friendly Walks in Lytham St Anne’s
Living in Lytham is a dream. It’s a dual seaside town with picturesque coastline and some fantastic parks and lawns. As a Mum of one I am always on the lookout for places to go for a walk that are ideal for a pram and families to discover, here are my top 5:
Lytham Hall – Lytham Hall, Ballam Road, Lytham, FY8 4JX
Lytham Hall is a national heritage 18th century Georgian country house and is set in 78 acres of wooded parkland. There is a gorgeous lawn area that you can take a picnic or a lovely little café that you can grab a cake in. There is a 5k route that you can take or if you would rather an adventure see how many turns you can take through the woods that lead you to different tracks. It also has ample parking which is free but some days it does have events on and parking is outside of the grounds.
– Fairhaven lake – Inner Promenade, Lytham Saint Annes FY8 1BD
The lake has recently undertaken a lot of restoration and it is such a lovely walk round the lake and it doesn’t take too long, you can even feed the ducks along the way. You will also find a park once you get around the lake and tennis courts. It is truly picturesque on a summers day and absolutely perfect for if you have a pram, it is flat all the way round. You may even spot a spitfire plane statue along the way. There is a charge for parking next to the lake or you can park on the main road.
– Lytham front
On a dry day this is one of my all-time favourite places to come, Lytham front with the iconic windmill situated at the start, it’s just idyllic. Extremely pram friendly, flat all the way and if you get to the end of Lytham front you can turn back or you can continue to walk in to St Annes. With a large grass area why not take a picnic and a few toys and enjoy the scenery with a sandwich and a bottle…. (obviously a milk bottle).
– Lowther Gardens
Lowther Gardens is the oldest park in Lytham St Annes and is one of the most beautiful parks in the borough. It is a great route to walk through and look at the flowers in the spring, sit and have a picnic in the summer and a great café in all weathers. It has a lovely park and tennis courts but I have walked round this park many a time with my little girl in the pram and she especially loves the statue in the pond you can park on the main road or down one of the side streets to get here.
– Ashton Gardens,
Ashton Gardens are based in St Annes but these gardens are beautiful, when the flowers are in bloom babies will love looking at the bright colours or toddlers will love running around them. This park has lots of different routes and it even has a little bridge that you can cross to get to the other side of the park. The café here is fantastic and super pram friendly, it’s really spacious and you could even sit out on the veranda in the sunshine and enjoy tea and cake.
So whether it’s exploring the grounds of a Georgian house or pottering through a rose garden Lytham St Annes has a lot to offer for walking with prams, hope you enjoy visiting these places.
