Why stay here ...

This site is very convenient for the local station to the city centre.

Lyons Farm is an adult only site, situated on a small arable farm in beautiful countryside on the outskirts of Liverpool. Pitches are set on a level mown grass field. Electric hook ups and drinking water are also available on each pitch. There is also a separate grass area set aside for dog walking.  If you are booking by phone and we are not able to respond, please follow up your request either by text or email.

The local market town of Ormskirk is within 4 miles of the site. Other local towns that are convenient are Wigan and St Helens. Further afield is the seaside town of Southport which is approximately a 30 minute drive. Also within a 30 minute drive are a selection of National Trust properties including Speke Hall and the Martin Mere Wetlands Wildfowl Trust, which are all worth a visit. Closer to the site are a golf course (2m) and the Leeds Liverpool canal (4m). 'Another Place' Gormley Metal Statues at Crosby Sands is also a worthwhile place to visit (4m).

The site is very convenient for the local train station and the bus stop is only a 15 minute walk. The M58 is also located close by for easy road travel. Close by is a tasty Indian restaurant (0.5m) and an award-winning local pub (2m).

Lyons Farm is convenient for the Grand National at Aintree by using the local station at Maghull.

March 2019

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

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

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

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.

Good site

Just off the M58.  Good ease of access, but do not just turn up as you may not get in owing to a security gate.  BOOK FIRST.  Free car park, all day in Maghull, behind the shops.  Bus stops 50 yds away to Liverpool, Skelmersdale and Wigan.  Just round the corner buses to Southport.  Good roads in the area.  Warden on site but has a day job so not always someone at the CL.  Some road noise.  No need to drive into Liverpool.
