Lovely Autumnal weekend away

Arrived late on Friday night just as we were losing the daylight. Booked in at reception and were directed to a selection of pitches. We had been warned that the empty pitches that had cones on them denoted they were liable to flood. With this in mind we pitched up at the far end of the newer part of the site. The pitch was fantastically flat, and we were soon settled in for the night. We did a quick tour of the site on foot to give the dogs a chance to stretch their legs. On Saturday we took a leisurely stroll in to town (about 15 -20 minutes walk away). We walked in to town through Victoria Park, past the boating lake, and the gardens. Despite it being out of season the place was well kept. The club site is also handily placed for the Morrison's supermarket. Southport was lovely and picturesque and this was definitely helped by the late Autumn sunshine, we wandered the length of Lord Street, through the numerous arcades and pedestrian shopping areas, and rested up with a coffee in a pavement cafe. We stopped for a late lunch in The Cheshire Lines Inn, and had an absolutely brilliant meal. It is well worth a jaunt off the beaten track. We headed back to the site via a lap of the lake and gardens. We were impressed with the toilet block, immaculately clean and with enough showers, wash basins, and toilets. One point to note that the site is adjacent to the coast road and some car noise is to be expected. We enjoyed our weekend break so much that we have booked to return between Christmas and New Year, and also next September to coincide with the Air show. All in all a great weekend break, in a lovely Victorian town.

A 'Not Well Managed' Site

Our first visit to this, one of the few remaining sites we have not visited on the CaMC network. As others have said it is a great location with many attractions nearby or a short drive away… A site which caters for everyone and of all abilities. Unfortunately it is not a well managed site, or at least not on our visit. As previous review mentioned, I too did get the feeling the Wardens wished they were elsewhere. I don’t know when the Regional Manager last visited, perhaps there is a ‘support’ issue. Apart from the various maintenance issues around the site….a priority should be given to a remedy for the ‘Watership Down’ area. It was impossible not to notice that some of the inhabitants were suffering from Myxomatosis. Fortunately at this time of year there are not many flying insects which would almost certainly have been in contact with the rabbit and potentially transmit to an unsuspecting human…alarmingly the many children who frequent this site. Otherwise, this could be the site for those members who like a ‘relaxed’ attitude towards site rules…you know the ones most of us adhere too. No problem with the 6m rule, you can ignore the pitch marker by giving a plausible excuse to the Warden…Children can also cycle/scooter around the toilet block area and ignore the 5mph sign on roadways, even in full view of the CCTV camera….If you have a dog(s) they will love the freedom of running around site ‘off lead’ and defecating tow bar covers. A I said earlier, ‘A site for everyone’..

Pleasant site

Site was fine, toilets immaculate, wardens friendly. Easy, short walk into Southport town centre. The town itself must have been glorious in its heyday with its stunning Victorian architecture. Bit tired now but all the more reason to visit and spend some money in the shops and cafes. Very friendly locals. Lastly, I’m puzzled by some of the comments about road noise at times. The site is in a town!
