We are Peter and Wayne and we are the proud owners and your hosts here at Lawrence House Blackpool.
Back in October 2008, Peter, who worked in health promotion within the NHS, and Wayne a qualified accountant, gave up everything to buy a scruffy run down guest house on a side street in Blackpool. Friends and family thought we had gone totally mad!
We were looking for a project and we certainly found one! Armed with a very small budget, a few power tools and a tool box, we set out on a journey to transform a very sad, forlorn looking old building into Lawrence House as we know it today. The process took a very gruelling eight months, (we filed for divorce several times during this period!) We carried out the vast majority of the work ourselves, with a little help from our friends of course. We eventually opened the doors to the first paying guests in August 2009.
Eleven years on and we’re very proud at what we’ve achieved, even winning a few awards along the way. We couldn’t have done any of this without our many loyal guests, many of whom have become friends. If this is to be your first visit, or one of many. You are always guaranteed a very warm welcome here at Lawrence House.
