Riverside Holiday Park: Indoor heated swimming pool

General

  • Close to the beaches and dunes of Southport
  • Within easy reach of Liverpool and Blackpool; bus outside to Southport
  • Licensed shop, 80 acres to wander and indoor heated pool with spa

If you want to get to the beach from Riverside Holiday Park in Merseyside, just jump on the bus... Directly in front of the park is a bus stop with a daily half hour service straight into Southport – step off bus, find sands and sand dunes, spread blanket on sand, sorted. (You might also like to hear about the very lengthy pier at Southport too...)

And if you want to get to the museums and nightlife from Riverside Holiday Park, also jump on the bus: just across the road from the park is another bus stop with well-priced day tickets to the sights of Liverpool – step off bus, find museums, find nice old pub, sorted.

For the days mooching about on site in between beach bathing and city sightseeing, Riverside has 80 acres to wander over as well as a stream of facilities to investigate: a heated indoor pool with spa open from March to November; fishing on site (bring your rod licence); and the Riverside Bar and Cafe from which to contentedly contemplate the countryside.

There's also an modern play area for the kids (plus plenty of places for them to run around), a licensed shop, a launderette and a large area for exercising dogs. The toilet and shower blocks are centrally heated with free hot water, disabled facilities and baby changing.

This site is a member of Harrison Leisure UK group.

    Disliked: 

    There were no Covid measures at all in place in the toilet block, shower block or washing facilities i raised this with the park management and they did not have the courtesy to get back to me - very poor show ! The pitches are small and cars were double parked making it almost impossible to get to the pitch. Upon arrival at the pitch it was evident it had not been checked or cleared as we had to pick rubbish up and dispose of it

    Good location. Park was well well laid-out with good facilities. Free WiFi was good. Ladies toilet facilities were clean and showers were hot.

    Disliked: 

    Codes for entry/exit barriers and toilet/shower blocks weren’t supplied on check-in. Had to call warden for the toilet block codes and rely on other residents to enter the code to let us enter and exit the park.

    We weren’t able to use the flat grassed area adjacent too our pitch (we were greeted by our ‘friendly’ neighbour who informed us that he had paid for the grassed area in his annual rental, so we couldn’t use it).

    Cleanliness in the gents could be improved at times. In both toilet blocks, the showers would benefit from a ‘dry area’ - it was difficult to dress when the floor was wet from the shower.

Local attractions

The Victorian town of Southport has been one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK since the times of Queen Vic, when the population decided seaside holidays in the region were the way to go. Highlights include the smashing sand dunes, which roll out all the way between Birkdale and Woodvale to the south – part of the dunes are a National Nature Reserve and the keen-eyed should see sand lizards and Natterjack toads.

Golfers go here too: Southport is the centre of England's 'Golf Coast' and home of Royal Birkdale Golf Club, once host to the Open Championship – several other courses are within 15 minutes' drive of town, so bring your clubs.

The Ribble Estuary edges Southport to the north and is very much worth a wander for wildlife fans, as it has a big wildfowl population in winter and is also a National Nature Reserve. Also nearby for nature lovers, the WWT's site at Marton Mere is fab for families with its play area and child-friendly events like den building, pond dipping, arts and crafts and canoe safaris.

And finally, take time in Liverpool, for attractions like the Museum of Liverpool and International Slavery Museum, the Beatles Museum, and the pubs and clubs around Concert Square and Mathew Street.

Must see

  • WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre (3.4 miles)
  • Camelot Theme Park (8.7 miles)
  • Forest of Bowland (9.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Rufford Old Hall (4.1 miles)
  • Formby (10.3 miles)
