Why stay here ...

Just a short walk from Southport Club Site, you will find yourself in the heart of the elegant Victorian seaside town of Southport. Strolling past the exclusive shops in historic Lord Street with their vaulted canopies and Victorian glass is like stepping into another era. Opposite the site, there is a nature reserve, Victoria Park with its croquet, bowling greens, and flower show in late August, as well as plenty of family fun on the nearby beach. The Merseyside caravan site is ideal for dog owners, with plenty of lovely walks in the local area, such as Formby beach.

Southport Club Site is also a convenient distance away from the spectacular Air Show which is sure to delight the young and old alike.

Pleasantly surprised

Southport wasn’t our first choice but it was the only site which had availability for our dates, as well as meeting our other criteria (close enough to home for a short break; proximity to town for shopping and eating out). We knew there would be some decent walks, if only on the beach, but we were pleasantly surprised with the variety and number of walking routes, particularly in the dunes area between the site and Ainsdale. So we will definitely come again and explore further. We enjoyed a decent Sunday pub lunch with friends - at the Park Hotel (Greene King pub) in Birkdale. The Café Bar N’Ista was also pleasant but we didn’t eat there as they weren’t serving food on a Sunday. The welcome by wardens was friendly and efficient. Facilities were spacious and clean. We liked being able to wander to Lord Street for some bits of shopping.

Almost full. Still nice and quiet.

Excellent site in good location for Southports amenities without need for car. Liverpool also easy accessible without car. Nearly full site but still nice and quiet. Toilet blocks clean except one day fecies smeared around outside of bowl by some disgusting member. Also think may be time to consider better security on some gateways to park and roads around.

Below standard for Caravanclub

Arrived at site just after 1pm on 21st, told to move forward when caravan moved on and we did that.The guy who was booking us in was very abrupt ,unwelcoming and abrupt! When he realised I was paying by vouchers he retorted “ well most people pay by card” really. We chose our pitch and I went up to reception to pay. We had two separate bookings, again this seemed to be a problem and only allowed to pay my first night. I was really surprised at this because we had the same situation on another site and the lady joined both bookings and I was allowed to pay my full stay.I returned the next day to reception to pay my other two nights....what a difference, the lady and gentleman could not have been more welcoming, just what we are used to when we are on a club site.As far as the Covid effort on this site, differed from the last 7/8 clubs we had visited. The signage which was on display was as followed: Reception, the signage was printed by the Caravan club which stated only one person in reception at any given time, every other site had a billboard outside reiterating this process and everyone could clearly see and follow, the signage on the door did not stand out... so I don’t need to explain what was happening! Toilets: the only thing which was closed off were toilets and showers, sinks 3 of them were all open ( not closed off for social distance) Kitchen : 3 sinks and none closed off , so I don’t need to tell you what was happening, and again only the club signage nothing more that would draw people’s attention to what they really should be doing.This site was being run as if there was no Covid which I found unbelievable. I wish the club had settled on the same rules for all their sites which would have made it much easier for users, Either wristbands in the buckets or wristbands on hocks and signage over and above the printed signage posted on doors which no one took any notice of. I love going to the Caravan club sites as everything is usually uniform....and everyone ( except possibly) new members know what to expect.... but I’m sorry to say this site has let you down.

Dog noise

Had a disapointing stay due to neighbours two dogs incessantly barking because they had been left alone while the owners socialised at the caravan opposite, when I approached the lady owner after a half hours barking her and her friends just laughed, I said no please sort it, the husband then came pointing his stick at my wife saying it is normal for dogs to bark.He then complained to the warden that I had spoken to him. I do know that new measures and rules have been put in place due to the virus but it is also the wardens job to ensure the old rules are applied such as the rule about dogs, it should not be left up to the members to sort out , you could clearly hear them all over the site,several people remarked on it.
