Why stay here ...

Flukers Brook Farm CL is a family run site set on a small working farm in Knowsley Village, Prescot. The site is located on a large field with one lawned pitch and five hardstanding, each with an electrical hook up, fresh water and waste water with space for an awning (breathable groundsheets preferred). We are an adult only site and pets are welcome.

The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area, with Liverpool city centre 9 miles away with a variety of theatres, museums and galleries including the Tate at the Albert Dock. Also there is Knowsley Safari Park (4 miles), Anthony Gormely's Another Place at Crosby beach (11 miles), a variety of National Trust and private properties such as Speke Hall (13 miles) and Croxteth Hall & Country Park (5 miles/2 miles walking). Nearby is Southport (21 miles) which has a popular annual flower and air show. Further afield but still within an hour's drive you can visit Chester (30 miles) and Manchester (32 miles).

For the more sporty campers there are local walks and cycling from the site, leisure centre (3 miles) fishing lakes (6 miles), horse riding school (2 miles), nine hole golf centre at Aintree with a driving range (8 miles), a nine hole par 3 golf centre and an eighteen hole course (7 miles) at Rainford. There is also horse racing at Haydock Park (12 miles) and Aintree (8 miles) which hosts the famous Grand National. If you prefer a more relaxed day you can relax and pamper yourself at the Chill Out Spa (2 miles).

There is a local shop, petrol station and a pub serving food within 3/4 of a mile from the site and there is a Catholic Church and Church of England church in the village. Supermarkets, shops and restaurants are within a fifteen minute drive. There is excellent motorway links and it is an ideal stop over for the ferries leaving Liverpool.

Great Site, easy access

We've been a regular since this site opened. Agree, the only downside is the slight noise from the motorway, but this is an example of what a CL should be and the cost is so reasonable. Access to the site is wonderful, we have a 40ft American motorhome and a car behind us and can easily access the site from the main road. John keeps the branches cut so that at 12ft 3inches, tall, we don't rub the roof!! So well maintained, regular grass cutting, bins emptied every day.

One of the best sites we have stayed on

This is an excellent site in so many ways. The arrival instructions are really clear and the entry to the site through a mobile phone accessed gate is a great idea. The pitches are nicely spaced, flat and having water and waste on all sites is great. The owners have even provided waste pipes to connect to the caravan. The site is ideally situated for visiting Liverpool, which is easy to get to. We spent a day sightseeing, headed back to the site to freshen up and then headed back to the City for the evening - its that easy and accessible. Others have mentioned the road noise - on the Friday evening it was noticeable if outside the van, however it was rush hour so should be expected. It does quieten down though and the rest of the weekend was quiet and unobtrusive - so don't be put off. Overall a lovely farm location with great facilities on site and nearby.

Whitsun Bank holiday stay

An excellent CL with 4 hardstanding & 1 grass pitch all fully serviced. Site very private in a picturesque setting, which is kept very neat & tidy with elsan point & bins. Everything for a great self-contained break. Electric gated entrance which operates by phone, preset & sent by owner, so very secure! Close to motorway, So you do get some traffic noise daytime, this is quieter at night. Pitches level and flat.One of the best we've stayed on. Stella & hubby v.friendly! Site is 6 miles from Liverpool centre. The proprietor Stella (a lovely lady), will greet you on arrival with a detailed leaflet of the area including travel options. It is possible to get a bus at the end of the lane which takes you to Huyton or Page Miss, where you can get a connecting bus into Liverpool. We travelled by car & parked at Mount Pleasant, multi story car park. £4 for over 3hrs. Free disabled parking on level 5 ( All day). Main supermarkets Aldi, Asda, Tesco, all within 3/4 miles. Smaller shops nearerby in village 1/2 miles. Food & meals at Darby Arms pub (1/2mile up road), we're excellent, extensive menu & good price. (Recently changed hands-Stella informed us). Stella also gives you a list of different places to eat within a few miles. We were a party of 4 adults, with 2 units. We used the site as a base to explore Liverpool & it's many wonderful attractions inc, the ferry across the Mersey, Beetles childhood homes ( pre-booked through the National Trust), Liverpool Museum (free), Albert Dock, site seeing around town i.e cavern club, Liver building, fab four statues, Villa, etc. Great place, city & people! Thank you Stella! We will be back. X

Lovely site, great owners!

We stayed in April and used the site as a base for visiting the sights of Liverpool and surrounding area. It was an ideal choice for access to road links, and the train into Liverpool. The site is very well laid out with excellent serviced pitches and a great recycling / waste area, very well thought out and beautifully maintained. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The proximity to the motorway is an advantage as you can get everywhere quickly, and the road noise may seem a bit loud on arrival but then you hardly notice it. There's lots of wildlife - pheasants, we had a squirrel on our bird feeder as well as blue, great and coal tits, and lots more. Would we stay again? Like a shot! Not just for a week, but as a stop-over on a journey north - the location is ideal! We visited the newly opened Liver Building (wonderful), took the Mersey explorer and visited the U Boat (really interesting commentary on the boat and the U Boat was amazing), the Anderton Boat Lift ( a masterpiece of engineering), Liverpool Town Hall (beautiful), the Anglican Cathedral (what views!!), Speke Hall and the Beatles Houses, The Hardmans House and loads more. We were there for a week and only scraped the surface of things to do - good reason for a return visit! The weather was amazing, so all in all we had a great time. Thank you for a lovely stay!
