Why stay here ...

Our site is very convenient for all motorways as we are less than 1 mile from Junction 1 on M58. The local train station, with car park is 1 mile exactly. Trains run every 15 minutes at peak times and every 30 minutes off peak, taking 20 minutes to Liverpool city centre (from £4.40 return).

Lyons Farm is a second generation arable family farm which due to economical pressures has had to change. We started our site 20 years ago as we caravanned ourselves from when our two boys were born. We plant trees and hedging every year to enhance our farm and help our carbon footprint.

The site is an adults only site set within 1 acre on level mown grass with service pitches (elec and water).  Hard standing can be made available if necessary. There is a separate dog walking area. We are open all year.

There is plenty to see and do in the local area. We have the historial market town of Ormskirk with markets on a Thursday and Saturday. Local car boot sales are held on Saturday and Sunday. There are also plenty of Golf Courses and National Trust properties for you to visit and don't miss the Wetlands at the famous Martin Mere. For local food there is the Derby Arms only 2 miles away. Prices from £14 per night.

Welcoming Host but Compromised Site

Lyons Farm
All previous comments about the hosts welcome and accurate. Very pleased to see us and knowledgeable. It wasn't entirely his fault that the pitch we were offered wasn't in a field as in the picture. Apparently due to recent wet weather the camping fields was too wet for vehicles so we were in a small yard on a concrete base which had at one time been a building. It would have been better to refuse the booking. Site fee is now £15 and I'm not sure how anyone can mark it a 'peaceful' the motorway is only a field away. All comments about access to Liverpool are accurate, the train station at Maghull North is relatively new, has good access and a regular commuter service. So in general, OK for a couple of nights, particularly if you have business in Liverpool, but, if it's wet not for much longer.

We went to this site to go to Liverpool for my wife's birthday. Mersey Rail have a station called Maghull North, which is only about a mile from the site. Plenty of water and the field for dogs is great for my wife's guide dog to have a play. The owner has great knowledge of the area too and always stops for a chat. We Have booked again for August Bank holiday weekend. The prices are very good too.

great site

Lyons Farm
stopped at lyons farm for 3 nights. The owner was very friendly and even hooked up our van to his tractor and put it on site because the ground was very soft due to a lot of recent rain. We used this a base when we went to aintree. A taxi to maghull station was £4 and the train only a few pounds. Its a basic site, but great location and the owner is very nice.

Warm welcome

Lyons Farm
The owner of the site was very warm, knowledgeable and welcoming. This was a really handy location for moving on to see Another Place on Crosby Beach. We noticed that Carla Lane's Animal Sanctuary was just down the road. We found a nice Indian restaurant in nearby Maghull. Very enjoyable. We would return for a visit to Liverpool. Other site users were good company.

good location

Lyons Farm
Stayed here for long weekend so that we could visit liverpool. great location, just a few miles from the local train station Maghull. Train cost us £12 for the 4 of us for a return ticket into the city. Didn't meet the owner until last day but a very nice gentleman. A bit of a pain having to keep unlocking gate everytime to want to leave but it does add extra secruity. The CL is well kept and flat and offer large pitches with electricity and water on each pitch. Only down side really is that site is very close to 3 very busy noisy roads and you could really hear them, luckily it was this time of year and we were sat in the caravan. My ear plugs came in very useful during the night. Plenty of scope to put toilet or shower in the future. Overall great location, nice owner and large flat pitches. Would return to site to visit liverpool and surronding areas.
