Bowling green, pitch and putt and adventure play park

General

  • Peaceful and remote park 15 minutes' drive from the coast at Southport
  • Under 10 minutes' drive from the market town of Ormskirk
  • Adventure play park, bar, restaurant and bowling

Secluded, well set up for kids and only a 15-minute drive from the fine sands and seaside town of Southport – all 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 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, 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 is to hand 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.

Pitches really good and a good size site. 10/06/2019

    Facilities good on site.

    Disliked: 

    Felt let down dogs not allowed in the pub the weather raining really hard so we had to stay and drink in our tent. Also not much choice on food menu but if you ate in the pub still got served in takeaway trays?

From the manager...

Unfortunately there are not many restaurants where dogs are allowed unless you are willing to pay much higher prices.
Due to the number of dogs allowed on the park, it would be impossible to permit all dogs in the bar area!

Great site for adults and children, marred by toilets cleanliness. 07/06/2019

  • Liked: 

    This site is one of the most beautiful we have ever been on. Everyone from staff to residents were exceptionally friendly. Took our 6 and 3 year old grandchildren for a birthday treat and they loved the amusement park. The fully equipped touring pitches are great. Shop was good and also sold delicious hot and cold sandwiches, chips etc. As it wasn’t a busy time, staff let us stay later than the 11 o’clock departure, so our grandchildren could play in the amusement park in the sunshine (it had rained for our two day stay). If it wasn’t for the dislike below, I would think it’s one of the best in the country.

    Disliked: 

    Now for the dislike - and there seems to be a thread running through all the comments relating to this. The toilets and showers are very dirty and were not cleaned during our 3 day stay. Cleaner is putting toilet rolls and soap in, but not cleaning toilet basins or showers. He is wiping sinks and mopping underneath, but didn’t go near showers. Husband said Gents were the same. Unfortunately, being busy with children, we didn’t get chance to report it at the time, but did on our departure, so hopefully someone will get it sorted.Please, please owners, we don’t need the facilities updating, just CLEANING!! It’s marring it’s excellence.

Local attractions

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, 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.

Must see

  • WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre (2.5 miles)
  • Beacon Country Park (7.3 miles)
  • Camelot Theme Park (9.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Rufford Old Hall (4.9 miles)
  • Formby (7.4 miles)
