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.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

    The size of the pitch was a good size to fit caravan, awning and car on the gravel area without having to go on the grass.
    Friendly helpful staff

    Toilet and shower block needs a revamp as looking tired and dirty.
    The toilets in the club stunk of sewage and needs a revamp as paint coming off the doors looking very tired

    We have just come back from a short break away. We are a family with 3 children from 3-10. We used this as a base to do lots of days out. It is very well located to do various activities. 5/5

    Having stopped at bigger chain caravan companies before i was very surprised on how clean the van was. It smelt clean - bleached :) We have been to most other chains before and had to deep clean which isn't something you want to be doing on holiday!

    The play park looked very well kept. I can't comment on the pool as we never went in but that was still open too!

    When we went to check in i was greeted by a lovely young girl who took her time to explain everything to me.

    Due to our work commitments we couldn't book again for the following year as we never know when we can both get the same holidays but we will certainly be coming back.

    We also had very good mobile signal too which made a difference when planning days out.

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 (5.5 kilometres)
  • Camelot Theme Park (14.0 kilometres)
