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.

Excellent Site

Just got back from a 3 night stay at this site, Wardens so helpful and the toilets got to be the cleanest toilets ever. Great stay , well kept site and so easy access to the town centre just a 10minute walk to the shops. Will definitely book again.

Excellent stay

As new to caravaning my family and I (2 adults, 3 children). Booked for a 2 night winter weekend stay. Upon arrival the staff in reception couldn't of been more friendly and welcoming, this continued throughout our stay. Shower/toilet facilities are immaculately clean and lovely and warm with good hot powerful showers. Close enough to walk into town, but a lovely peaceful location with nice walks through the sand dunes across the road. Will definitely be booking further breaks at this site

Wet windy and fantastic

Due to Covid we stayed here coming from the Wirral (all therefore within tier 3). Well done to the Caravan and Motorhome Club for keeping the site open for those within the tier. Helpful friendly wardens who kept the site well maintained despite gales and very heavy rain. A number of pitches were waterlogged but well cordoned off. Not many on the site - we counted a maximum of 20 units on two nights. Lovely walks - coastal path well recommended. Also hugely recommended is The Fisherman’s Rest just round the corner from the site. Victoria Park fabulous for dog walkers Would just say wellies essential when it rains heavily. Great to see wardens offering free Halloween packs. Will come again hopefully sooner rather than later. Thank you again to the Club!

Disappointing and abrupt

For our first time on Caravan Club Site a very disheartened and disappointing outing!! We arrived on site to be met by the warden walking down the road and kept turning around looking only to a point where he stopped turned around and just stared at us, obviously we should of read his mind to follow him and pull up to him so he could then be sarcastic, " you certainly like to make a entrance" is what he said, as I was stunned at what he said i let it go with no comment, he instructed us where to head and not to move any cones as the site is part flooded, we picked our spot and the set up, my partner headed down to give the pitch number and pay again met with Mr Miserable told to stand there and wait to be dealt with, For me its all about 1st impressions, he certainly made one, miserable, abrupt and down right rude, I could keep writing allday long with a list as long as my arm but instead I give the site a wide berth, maybe he was just miffed as the site toilets where blocked and the site was flooded on random pitches, A disgruntled caravaner

very pleasant stay

The site was easy to find being situated close to the town. The reception was friendly and informative. All the Covid restrictions seem to be being observed. As ever on club sites all the facilities were very clean and the site tidy. It is well laid out, quiet and peaceful at all times despite being almost full. just outside the park is Victoria Park, a lovely place to have a pleasant walk or to just sit in the sun. the promenade is just a couple of hundred yards away giving an interesting if bracing walk or cycle ride into Southport. whist we were there the sea was so far out we couldn't see it during daylight hours. The Southport site is ideal for visiting the town and provides a very nice base for those wishing to use the facilities in the town or the nearby golf courses. lthere are several walks and cycle routes in the area. For those wanting a more sedentary stay, it is also ideal for that. Much recommended. Many thanks to the staff for their diligence at this trying time.
