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.

The Burger van and the bar.21/09/2020

    The Burger van and the bar.

    Disliked: 

    Very poor level of maintenance on the site. Barriers to get in and out are a nightmare if it doesn't recognise your reg, or they forget to put you on the system. Rude staff, more interested in demanding that you have your mask on, in a room where there was just him and I. Very small pitches, all crammed together. Not very scenic at all and the location is shockingly boring. I don't usually take my camper to these type of caravan parks but it was the only one available for the weekend we wanted. Maybe its just me and my attitude towards these types of parks. Not ideal for campervan folk, more suited to the mobile home brigade.

    Initial drive into resort was nice
    Check in was friendly and quick

    Disliked: 

    Stayed in a different chain owned park for a fraction of the cost but with miles better facilities.
    Pitch needs trees cutting back a bit.
    Cars parked to tightly and along grass rather than on their pitch.
    The bar looks like a workers social club.
    Outside bar area untidy and unappealing
    Cigarette butts all over floor area by cafe
    Shop shut on a Saturday??
    Overflowing bins on pitch areas
    Noisy site with to many dogs barking.
    Locals using bar....outside was more like a youth club.
    Most expensive camp site on our road trip from Dorset to Scotland and back.....With the least amount of facilities and standards., stay somewhere else!

Someone parked on the site we had booked, loud aggressive arguing from the van next door! Sorry but for our first time not t a great experience 😣

    Good location only about 3 mile drive to Southport which was lovely.

    Disliked: 

    A bit cramped for space between pitches. Also showers were lovely and warm but could do with a makeover, great that they were open though and they were clean. A bit expensive compared to most sites at £45 a night. A bit noisy till quite late.

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)
