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.

Southport Club Site is also a convenient distance away from the spectacular Air Show which is sure to delight the young and old alike. Other famous attractions in the area include the Lake District, the Yorkshire Moors, the Roman city of Chester and Wigan Pier. Southport also boasts a multiplex cinema, located on the Ocean Plaza.

BUNNIES EVERYWHERE

What a lovely surprise when I woke up to see bunnies everywhere - how cute. Lovely site near sand dunes, nature trail and Victoria Park which was great for dog walking. The showers were a bit of a walk and the motorhome service point was a bit of a squeeze but were lovely and also very clean.

First Visit to Southport Site

We have recently stayed at Southport site on a service pitch. We arrived after 7pm and was met by a warden. He told us the only service pitch available was 102 and handed me the facilities and barrier key. Had to open the barrier myself which meant getting out of the car as the barrier post is not very convenient when you have a twin axle caravan hitched up. You then have to be quick before it starts to come down. We found the pitch and set up. The site was pretty full but was quiet and peaceful. We are elderly so getting the awning threaded through the channel is hard. We were helped by the warden - very pleasant and we were thankful. After pumping the air channels came the time to peg out. The hardcore on the pitches is difficult to penetrate and we found it impossible. Robert on pitch 103 loaned his electric drill but that too was almost defeated and a number of metal screw pegs were damaged. He said he had that pitch last year and he too had extreme difficulty pegging out. Can it be investigated? The sand dunes are lovely and each day with my dog we explored them and also the beach beyond the Coastal Road.The sea however is very elusive and the long pier does not get its uprights visited by the surf - did it ever? The Edwardian town is nicely presented and I feel a lot of effort is spent making it decorative and welcoming Would we visit again? Yes - but there needs to be more service pitches and there needs to be consideration with the choice of hardcore. A mallet should suffice to put the pegs in and that is not the case at present. So be warned - take your electric drill!

50/50

Good site as has been mentioned for position, facilities etc. We had a lovely pitch in the shade(18) and despite the last review the staff were pleasant and professional. My point is that whilst the old part of the site has a countryside ,green feel about it ,the new side looks and feels like a car park.....and there was no obvious work going on to change that environment We love to go on our travels and wake up to a new view every site we visit.So having just come back from trips to Scotland you can imagine the contrast with Southport would not have been positive if we had found ourselves on the new side I hope the club can review its apparent plans for this site and start planting soon

Good site poor reception on arrival

I arrived on site to be met by a miserable woman perhaps she had a busy day. I booked in and was told to find a suitable pitch. What she did not tell me was the site was almost full and where I might find a pitch and after a 420 mile drive you do not feel much like searching a 180 pitch site. I drove to the barrier only to sit there like an idiot because she had forgotten to raise the barrier. Back to office no one there luckily I found her outside watering the flowers. Not a great start but a really nice site well kept and a great area.
