Keepers

Sleeps 16-20 Little Plumpton, Blackpool

Style and comfort share the spotlight

Luxury is the magic ingredient in this minimalist cocktail, leaving a lasting impression. Sinking into soft leather recliners or the glow of the hot tub, from bedroom to bathroom to breakfast bar, straight-up style is the language here. Use it to write a story you'll never forget.

Glitzy-glam funseekers’ pad

The Fylde is a sleepy Lancashire peninsula of historic market towns, duck ponds and village greens. Before land meets sea, nature reserves and soft sand beckon. In the heart of it all, behind iron gates and a high-hedged cart track, sits Keepers, embedded in six acres of lawn, ponds and woodland.

The landscape may be dozing, but you don’t have to. This is a glitzy glam pad for 18 funseekers with an eye on the seven-bedroom, luxury-led good life. Eat and entertain on the deck, then dip in and out of the eight-person hot tub beneath big blue skies or starlit canopy.

The kitchen’s expensive and expansive: you could host a football match in there. If you’d rather cook, you’ve an induction hob and two-fan oven. If you’d rather not cook, ask us, get your bathing gear on and dig out the corkscrew. Raid the ice machine for summer drinks or the coffee machine for after dinner.

Keepers makes getting together easy: spaces are big, and so are the TVs. There’s outside space in spades. You’ve a games room with pool, table football and board games. And you’ll get 18 round the chunky dining table. Live the Lytham high life, then come home to crisp-cotton beds and a sexy steam room.

Hot tub, gardens and grounds

The immediate gardens look like a particularly beautiful and testing golf hole. But when you see the pond, one of four, it might be more a case of sandwiches than sandwedges. Pack a picnic, break out a bottle and enjoy the tranquillity.

If you can’t resist al-fresco dining, you don’t have to. Duck out onto the entertainment deck and enjoy a summer salad in the clear country air. After dinner, explore the ponds and woodlands, then climb into the eight-person hot tub for a little shared wellbeing beneath the stars.

Living spaces

Minimalistically beautiful, the living spaces at Keepers only add to the sense of glitzy glam. Clean, modern spotlights shine down on contemporary furnishings, animal-print cushions and oak doors. Load up the home audio and sing your way through the day or whistle up some entertainment on the wifi.

Got a match to catch or a film to watch? Pick from three TVs: two 40-inch and one 50-inch, all with Sky. Get everyone together in the big spaces. Pour a Chianti or raid the machine for a café latte. This is entertainment made easy.

Head out to the outdoor entertainment space. If you can resist the hot tub, maybe shoot some pool, break out some board games or take each other on at table football. At night, push back the chairs and dim the lights as you throw some shapes in the ultimate luxury party pad.

Cooking and dining

The kitchen gleams the gleam of the truly state-of-the-art. An induction hob and two-fan oven are the weapons you’ll need to keep your army marching. Perch on the bar stools when you stagger down to breakfast at staggered start times, or get 18 together at once around the chunky dining table.

Move outdoors to dine on the entertainment deck in the summer sunshine to the soundtrack of the ducks landing on the water and the birds in the trees. When you’re done, hop into the hot tub. If that kind of lounging and lazing seems like a nice idea, call up our chefs and get your cossie on.

Tuck into a pub lunch at The Grapes at Wrea Green, while leather meets willow on the village green. Try a boozy beef pie or a little tiffen at the Dizzy Ducks Tearoom or tackle the tasting menu at The Orangery. Or choose from the fresh, seasonal menus at The Villa.

Enjoy a slice of the Med at the Greek Flame Taverna or the Olive Tree Brasserie. Will it be pizza or pasta at Tiggi’s? Or maybe contemporary Italian fine dining – inside or out – at Novello? There’s Indian at Imli or Red Fort, Chinese at Lou Shang and a delicious fishfest at Spago.
