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 site is ideal for dog owners, with plenty of lovely walks in the local area, such as Formby beach.

Our second trip to Southport this year

Lovely site and friendly wardens. Very clean showers and lots of hot water. We loved coming here because of the short walk into town but at the moment Victoria Park is closed for ONE WEEK because of an event taking place and if we had known about the event we would have booked another week. Also no Fireworks display this year in Victoria Park, so will definitely check events in November before booking next year.

Lovely few days but some concerns about the dunes opposite

We love this site, it’s so handy for the park, walk into Southport beside the lake or through the Queen’s Jubilee Nature reserve opposite. Wardens are friendly and unobtrusive, just what we want from a site, toilets clean and warm, which as appreciated in the cold temperatures we had on our stay. Nothing to do with the site itself but my only concern was with the nature reserve opposite. We usually walk the dog over there before tea time but yesterday noticed 6/7 cars parked up, all with lone men drivers. Then came across 2 men as we walked through the reserve who quickly turned round and left the reserve as the spotted us. It was a little unsettling and I think members should be made aware that the area seems to be a meeting place for a group of people looking for ‘company’.

Great site

First time here and didn't want to leave. So close to everything, lovely clean, warm shower and toilet block. Was half term and plenty of children on site but still very quiet. Park with play area at one side, sand dunes to the other. Don't understand the complaint about the wardens, they were friendly and just let you get on with your holiday - not constantly marching round like on other CMC sites! Lots of rabbits visit after nightfall, lovely! Can't wait to return

Great site, Location and friendly wardens. Just really windy!

Visited mid October'18 for 2 nights. Would have preferred longer as there's lots to do in the area. Easy walk to park & ride where you can pay £2 per party for a return shuttle bus to the centre of Southport. We took the train to Liverpool for a day out which was very enjoyable. Site was large and spacious (to right of entry barrier) as opposed to the original part of the site (left of barrier) however, it was open to the elements with our second night seeing very strong winds. (Neighbour out at midnight hammering awning pegs back in) Warden was very helpful and friendly. Easy walk over the sand dunes to the beach or the other direction to a lovely park with children's play area. A Morrisons supermarket and fuel is very close by. I would visit this site again.
