Need to catch up with weeding.

Apart from the weather we enjoyed our stay again. Handy for walks on sea front and walking into town centre. We were a bit put out to see that thistles were being allowed to grow to quite a size o the grass areas and one against a electric point was full height. We can understand not spraying with weed killer but surely these could be cut just below the surface with a long handled sharp tool and then picked up. Felt like doing it myself just to show how easy it is.

Southport in the Rain

It is the 2nd time we have been to Southport, the extension is very big, but it is obvious some of the pitches need better drainage. The weather during our stay was VERY bad, but mostly came during the evening. The TV reception is NOT good and a booster would be much better. The site is excellent for walking into Southport and Birkdale, and there are many restaurants and bars in the town. Some people were speeding on the site and driving the wrong way. It would be better to warn people about Marine Drive, as the road is very bumpy and with a caravan you need to drive SLOWLY.

Not a great stay!

Not a great week, was't impressed with the standard of the site due to the fact it was petty much flooded out all week, we had laying water under our van and awning that wasn't draining away another night and the water would have swamped us out. The pitches at the side and back of us were completely submerged in water! There was no signs of any drainage at all on the site and the middle of the site was a duck pound! I found this annoying because when we arrived a few pitches were coned off due them being flooded but why not cone the rest off? or an area at least? Talking to other caravanners who have been to this site many times before have said that the drainage and flooding of the pitches has always been the same and poor. This club site would automatically know which pitches are prone to flooding so why not cone them off in advanced especially with the adverse weather we have had forecast. The caravan near us had to move pitches and so did a couple more. The road leading to the site was like a river! It is also worth noting that it is extremely dodgy after dark with suspicious parked vehicles cruising up and down. Also there is a public foot path going straight through the middle of the site from the dunes to the park which is why the toilet blocks are permanently locked and you are given a key no good if there are more than two of you in your caravan. This automatically put us off as we didn't feel the site over all was secure for a club site and the price we paid it certainly wasn't cheap. It is also worth noting that there is no tv aerial booster point or signal on site. We won't be returning again this year.

The extended area of this site requires substantial investment.

The southern area of the site requires substantial investment as it is very bland and boring. No sign of any trees or shrubs and as such being so close to the coast can be very windy. During our visit at least 5 occupied pitches were flooded after heavy rain with caravan power cables submerged. No visible signs of drainage. Not a site we would wish to revisit. Southport as a town was also very disappointing,
