Moorbank House

Your Best Choice for B&B in Blackpool

We look forward to welcoming you to Moorbank House Bed and Breakfast which is located right in the heart of South Shore Blackpool, a short walk from all the main Blackpool attractions.

Moorbank House is a Visit Britain 3 Star Accredited 12 bedroom family friendly licensed cheap hotel in Blackpool. We are within a stone’s throw of the World famous Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the Sandcastle Water Park complex, South Pier with all its attractions and the famous wide and sandy beach.

Whether it is a day on the beach, a visit to the UK’s no 1 Theme Park at Blackpool Pleasure Beach or an afternoon wiling away the time on the lazy river in the Sandcastle Water Park Moorbank House is perfectly located for all Blackpool has to offer.Nearest tram stops are South Pier and Waterloo Road just a short walk away. Trams to central Blackpool attractions take only a few minutes or a leisurely walk along the brand new and picturesque promenade will take you from this part of South Shore to Blackpool Tower in a few Minutes.

Moorbank House bed & breakfast isn’t located on the Promenade but in Moore Street which is just behind the Queens and Viking Hotel’s on the seafront. Moore Street does have a few small hotels but is mostly residential and whilst we cannot offer sea views we also do not have the traffic noise and exhaust pollution which comes with the very busy main road which is Blackpool’s seafront and the Golden Mile. Close enough to enjoy all the advantages but far enough away to escape the noise and hustle and bustle.

Moorbank House B and B can provide a choice of spacious and modern accommodation all tastefully decorated. The entire guest house has been completely refurbished and all rooms are provided with private bathrooms all equipped with a shower. Each room comes with its own tea and coffee hospitality tray which is re-filled daily, toiletries and flat screen televisions all with the latest Freeview channels.

We also have 4 poster and King-size bedrooms for those more romantic breaks with a bed and breakfast feel.We are also able to offer some ground floor rooms which may be ideal for guests who are disabled but have some limited mobility and who cannot manage stairs. (Please see our access statement for a detailed description of the layout of Moorbank House.) This should let you decide if our ground floor accommodation is suitable for you.

Blackpool South Shore

Blackpool South Shore started taking shape around 1819 with the building of a few residences on the Western side of what was Cow Gap Lane (this was to become Waterloo Road) between the area of where the McDonalds Burgers now stands on the Promenade over to the Southern edge of Waterloo Road near to where Notarianni’s ice cream parlour now stands.

Antique maps of the period suggest the whole area was rural inland beyond the dykes which were used to drain the moss land and largely sand dunes up to 500 metres inland from the sea edge. A specific 1818 map shows the commencement of building work and a network of roads begins to emerge along and off Lytham Road with a few buildings being marked along it.

Locals started referring to the area as New Blackpool and it soon became the place to be seen for holiday making middle class families to stay and shop in Church Street (which in time was to become Bond Street).

Around 1850 building work started to take place in Moore Street which we think was named after a chap called Thomas Moore who was a miller and corn merchant from the nearby inland suburb of Marton. This chap is credited with starting the first developments in South Shore with the building at along the Southern edge of the bottom of Waterloo Road. The Old Coach House was built at the junction of Moore Street and Dean Street in 1851 and is reputed to be the oldest remaining house in South Shore. When it was built Farms and Orchards largely occupied the surrounding area and it would have had a clear view to the sea over the sand dunes across to the area which would in the future be occupied by South Pier.

Moorbank House is as far as we know the second oldest surviving building in South Shore Wikipedia. The Number 28 part that is. Built a few years after the Old Coach House we think around 1859 it too would have had uninterrupted views of the Irish Sea across the dunes which were a feature of the area at that time. When we took over the property 11 years ago we undertook extensive renovations and found a servant calling system of wires and bells under the floor boards of the Dining Room which is directly above what would have been a large scullery come servants quarters in the basement. This of course fits the scenario that middle class families were the first people to settle in the area.

South Pier Blackpool was built in 1893 and the Pleasure Beach expanded to become a permanent attraction on the Sands just to the South of the Pier in 1896 and the rest they say is History.
