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.

Great park with clean facilities, friendly staff and level pitches.09/02/2019

  • Liked: 

    Lovely clean park. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Excellent pitch for our campervan and awning. (Staff even arranged for our pitch to be close to the toilets and shower block due to our poor mobility). Our dog was welcome too. We were pleasantly surprised that the park shop had all essentials in stock and everything was very reasonably priced. Our grandchildren loved playing on the climbing frame, slides and swings and also made a few little friends on site.

    Disliked: 

    Mix up over our sons booking for a tent pitch due to the Council ruling. Was disappointed that the pub didnt serve meals during the day or on an evening. However, the lady in the shop was expanding her business to provide hot food.

    Very friendly and helpful staff throughout the camp site. Outside bar area nice and clean. Drinks in the bar were reasonable priced.liked the artificial grass outside the caravan. We wouldn’t return only because there is not a lot going on in and around the site for us.

    Disliked: 

    From Saturday to Tuesday afternoon there was no toilet paper in the ladies, you have to carry toilet roll to the loo. Showers/toilet block not very clean, but that’s down to people who use them.

    Touring pitches were great! Good size and plenty of room for our young children to play. As it’s fake grass didn’t get muddy one bit which we was really pleased with! Park is great for children. Good bar area. We didn’t venture to the bar at night as we was enjoying it too much relaxing round our Campervan sat outside. Would definitely return

Toilets are unclean and no toilet rolls, unfriendly staff.08/29/2019

    Nothing.

    Disliked: 

    Rude staff at reception, very very rude. They just act like they can’t be bothered.
    The toilets and water taps are miles away from the camping field and it’s not ideal taking kids in the middle of the night in the pitch black. There was groups of people in tents close to us playing loud music and screaming and shouting and singing really loud keeping our children up all hours so we left a day early and they refused to refund us. They said we “should of rang the Marshall to complain at the time the noise was happening” who should of been doing his job anyway and checking up on the tent field!! He clearly wasn’t. Definitely would not recommend at all.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

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 (4.1 kilometers)
  • Beacon Country Park (11.7 kilometers)
  • Camelot Theme Park (14.7 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Rufford Old Hall (7.9 kilometers)
