Back in June I was one of the chosen winners of the Blackpool Ambassador competition with Tots100 and Visit Blackpool.
We’ve been to Blackpool several times before but I’ve never stayed overnight until now. I was really excited to hear that we would be staying at the beautiful Brek Apartments. Also included in the prize were Resort Passes for all the family.
The Brek Apartments are about 3 miles out from the seaside of Blackpool. The train station is just across the road and the bus stops outside. Great for us as we do not have our own transport. We arrived at 1.30pm in the lovely village of Poulton-Le-Fylde and were able to drop our cases off at the Brek Apartment office until they were ready for us to enter our apartment. We had time to go into Blackpool but Star was having a wobble about going back on the train and we didn’t want a meltdown so we took the time to explore Poulton-Le-Fylde.
Our apartment was beautifully luxurious and the girls loved the idea of the bedrooms being downstairs while the living area was up in the loft. I thought that black and silver would be a manly colour scheme but it really wasn’t, it was very welcoming. In fact I fell in love with the silvery wallpaper in the living room as well as the gorgeous light fitting. The beds were cosy and there were plenty of bedclothes. The bathroom hosted a jacuzzi bath and a separate shower cubicle.
on our first evening we were treated to a trip to the Tower Circus. Something else very new to me as I’ve not been to a circus before. We couldn’t take photo’s inside so I’ve borrowed some from the website. It was a truly entertaining evening, even the Little Man who normally can’t sit still for five minutes was totally mesmerised. We all loved Mr BooBoo and Mookey who entertained us between acts. We were treated to some really thrilling acts which culminated in a spectacular water feature. It was my favourite part of the trip.
The next morning we were up bright and early to take advantage of our resort passes. These represent great value for money and can be used in nine attractions in Blackpool.
- Blackpool Pleasure Beach
- Nickolodeon Land
- Blackpool Tower Eye
- Blackpool Dungeon
- Sea Life Blackpool
- Madam Tussauds
- Blackpool Zoo
- Blackpool Model village
- Sandcastle Waterpark
lovely pictures 🙂
Wow, my hometown! Very happy for you that you won this – and I hope maybe we could meet back there to enjoy the Pleasure Beach one day. Fingers crossed that Star's recovery goes well xx
Blackpool has a lot to offer. It looks like you all had a great fun time, the circus looked great as did the tower lit up! Thanks for linking up and sharing your Blackpool adventures with Country Kids.
What a fab prize, and it sounds like you had a great time. I'd love to go to Blackpool some day!
Wowsers you had a busy time, the circus looks great fun! That apartment is awesome 🙂 x
