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 park is a member of Harrison Leisure UK group.

Handy site with a lot of lying water and mud.11/06/2020

  • Powered gravel trailer site (superior)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Good site which is very handily placed for Southport attractions and other places, such as Martin Mere. Easy to book and the pitch was reasonable considering the very wet weather.

    Disliked: 

    There was a lot of mud on the grass to the side and end of the pitch, so much so that it was impossible to reasonably empty the grey water into the drain . There was no reasonable alternative available. We emptied into a drain inside the campsite. There seemed to be only one place for emptying the chemical toilet. I would have expected more for the size of the campsite.
    Covid meant that a lot of the facilities were not open so that is not their responsibility and not part of a judgement of the site.
    The October rainfall was largely responsible for the mud but it seemed that further work on drainage is required.

    In some ways difficult to assess as we were only there one night, it was nearly dark when we arrived and most facilities closed due to coronavirus. Good that they had a take away wagon onsite helping the fact other facitlites closed.

    Disliked: 

    3 star rating because found walk to toilet in the dark annoying - the roads are so potholed they are a trip hazard not to mention getting feet soaking wet in all the deep puddles.

    Pitch small so when awning connected to caravan you were stepping out onto a grassed area that was like a bog so everything caked in mud.
    Relaxing in awning but could hear thud thud thud from music.
    PaidSuper Pitch but no drainage (did have about half dozen with drains)?
    Dead rats squshed into gravel roads.
    Shop opens when it wants to.

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 kilometers)
  • Camelot Theme Park (14.0 kilometers)
  • Forest of Bowland (15.8 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Rufford Old Hall (6.6 kilometers)
  • Formby (16.6 kilometers)
