Secluded, well set up for kids and only a 15-minute drive from the fine sands and seaside town of Southport – sounds like a sure thing for a tiptop family holiday in England's north west.
Under 10 minutes' drive from the market town of Ormskirk, Shaw Hall is a family-oriented site among acres of countryside near the small west Lancashire village of Scarisbrick. It's within easy driving distance of the Martin Mere wetland centre for nature spotting, birdwatching, and canal boat tours, and a few miles from more of the same via canal rides (and cream teas) on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.
As a family site, Shaw Hall is well set up for kids, with an adventure playground, a bowling green, pitch and putt, plenty of room to play, and air hockey and pool tables in the bar. A restaurant with beer garden and takeaway around for food and drink, kids' activities and evening entertainment a couple of times a week for grownups. (Please note that some entertainment may incur a charge.)
Among the amenities are an accessible sanitary block with toilets, hot showers and a parent and baby bathroom; a washing-up area and a launderette with washing machines and tumble dryers.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

You might want to get straight to the sands first from Shaw Hall, so pile the kids into the car and drive along to the seaside town of Southport, 10 to 15 minutes away, for its beach, botanic gardens and the famed (in some circles) lawnmower museum, the only such establishment in the country. You can also whirl around the fairground rides and attractions of Southport's amusement park, or have a promenade along the town's pier, where views stretch along the coast to Blackpool and north Wales.
Elsewhere around the region, have afternoon tea on a scenic 90-minute canal boat tour along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, departing three miles from the site in Halsall, or drift around Marine Lake via pedalo or motorboat rides, seven miles away next to the coast in Southport.
Four miles away is the Wetland and Wildlife Trust's Martin Mere reserve for birdwatching, wildlife spotting, boat rides and regular events including toddler days and nature ranger experiences. At nearby Ruff Wood, you can take the circular walk through 19 acres of mixed woodland filled with oak and silver birch trees.
A little further afield are the salt marshes and sandflats of the Ribble Estuary National Nature Reserve, home to more than 250,000 ducks, geese, swans and wading birds; redshanks, skylarks, meadow pipits and linnets during summer; and 16 species of wintering birds.
Climbing, abseiling, canoeing, kayaking, archery, rifle shooting, raft building and high ropes are all available within about half an hour's drive, at the big outdoor pursuits centre in Mawdesley.
