Nelson Brook Farm: Spacious pitch

General

  • Peaceful farm site in a quiet corner of Merseyside
  • A 10-minute drive from Southport and 20 minutes from Formby
  • Play area on site; walking distance to restaurants and farm shop

Nelson Brook Farm is a peaceful farm site tucked away in a quiet corner of Merseyside, with flat and well-kept grounds, basic facilities and plenty of local footpaths for walks short or long.

This family-friendly site has a play area with straw bales and chickens where the kids can cavort in a safe environment. Dogs are also welcome here, but please make sure that they're kept on leads at all times (if they want to have a bit more of a run there's a fenced-off dog exercise area on site that guests can use for a small extra charge).

On the facilities front, Nelson Brook Farm has a washing-up area and clean and functional toilets and showers (no charge). Other than that, this site is pretty low on frills, with the focus on outdoor relaxing – as such, you're welcome to bring a barbecue and prep some self-cooked alfresco dinners. Feel free to gather your gang around a cosy campfire and tell stories as the sun goes down, too.

This well-connected site is an easy 10-minute drive from Southport town centre, a popular seaside spot where there's much to see and do. Handily, Nelson Brook Farm is also a 20-minute stroll from two restaurants and an organic farm shop; local takeaways will deliver to site if you don't fancy moving that far.

Not too far from shops and beach06/21/2021

    Not too far from shops and beach

    Disliked: 

    Can’t bring your own fire pit and wood, can only rent theirs for a high price.

From the manager...

To be precise :-
5 min to Tesco
10 min to the Southport beech

We are now compelled to charge for fire pits because of :-
1) Insurance during the dry summer weather against bush fires
2) the costs of cleaning up mess left behind by irresponsible users

£10 for fire pit and £10 for dry wood
, cut, delivered to your tent and more often than not having to demonstrate the correct safety and lighting procedure would not be deemed unreasonable by any standards

The other option is not allow them at all - which is what other campsites do
Most would agree , the first is preferable by far

    Loved the owners really friendly and felt looked after, always around and on hand if need, made alot of effort to make you feel welcome, renting the fire pit was our highlight as never done one before so having it on offer to rent was amazing, good times! Perfect location 3mins away from all local amenities all shops on the door step, 9mins away from southport, couldnever get board loads to do! Will back lovely atmosphere very family friendly!

    Disliked: 

    Field needs some work, my little boy kept stinging his foot on nettles, grass was shortly cut but riddled with weeds and nettles, found it hard to play ball games. But fairly new site so I am sure it will get better. The advert said there was a play area, this is why we pick it, but we couldnt find one on site.

From the manager...

Nicola. Thanks for the review
Due to Covid we have closed the straw bale play area but will open shortly
Signs on site stipulate that shoes must be warm as it’s a wild camping plus site
Have been out to the pitch but unable to find any

    Simple, easy to book, pleasant host, great spot! Camp fires allowed :-), toilets are the cleanest ever on a campsite
    Close enough to drive to the beaches in the area but far enough away from hustle and bustle and noisy nightlife. One way system for the toilets/showers which are clearly visible to ensure social distancing. Board with sore plan for designated areas and no cars next to pitch which makes things safer. Cleaning materials available for whee barrows that can be used to take your belongings to pitch.
    Will come back here again as it was very pleasant and a great location. Thank you for having us.

    A very new and basic small field site with friendly and relaxed owners.
    5 miles from Ainsdale beach meant a lovely early morning walk before the crowds.
    Showers and toilets had been cleaned.
    No cars allowed next to pitches - safer for the children/dogs

    Disliked: 

    A party until 1.30pm in the next tent.
    Quite expensive for the amount of amenities

From the manager...

Thanks you very much for your comments
You are welcome back 😁

The party tent next to you were evicted next morning They burnt my grass pitch as well
We act as soon as we are notified
Also please appreciate that if travelling alone - costs would be dearer for a single person
Thanks Dave
