 Just spent another wonderful weekend at Formby. Probably spent about 20+ weekends here over the last 3 years. Very relaxing site with excellent access to the sand dunes and beach. Ladies toilet block has been updated over the winter and now has more spacious showers with new tiling, looks 100% better than before - 20p for approx 5 mins showering.

Great site for dog walking. About 30mins walk into Formby village for shopping and also good bus service about 5 mins walk from site entrance.

Formby train station is about 15 mins walk where you can get regular trains to Liverpool in one direction or Southport the other direction if you don't want to use your vehicle. Also near to the station is a pub that does good food and seems very popular with local people.

Will spend many more weekends here before the season ends - usually have much better weather than at home too! Would say that this is our most favourite site, we always feel at home and relaxed when we arrive.

 We have just arrived home from are stay at this site, We found it very clean and tidy, It was quiet. The toilets and showers were very clean.

We had a stroll to the beach with our two dogs. We went over the sand dunes which is ok for youngsters, But it was are mistake we should have asked someone for the flatest route. We should have gone through the main gates at the campsite and walked down the road, it was much better for us oldies, Ha.

Will come back again as the staff were very nice. The weather was bad so we came home. In all It is great for walkers and dogs love it. The beach is about 20 mins walking round the flat way, But about 10 to 15 mins over the sand dunes. I have been to other sites that have more facilities, but are more pricey, you only get what you pay for and this was a fair price for this site 17 a night.

There are lots of charity shops in formby village they are very clean, They just look like normal clothes shops, They have a lot of classy stuff in them. Thanks once again Margaret.

 We were not impressed with this site. The toilet block was very old and grubby, we were given 1 key for the toilet/shower blocks, which had to open not just the outside door, but the internal shower and separate toilet doors too, and the only way to lock these doors was with the key, so if 2 of you want to use the facilities at the same time it was tough! The lights were on a sensor and turned themselves off a couple of times whilst I was in there. The ground at the side of the pitch was just a mess, no grass as such (whatever it was, was yellow and black) and you had to pay 3 extra per night for the honour of putting a porch awning on it! The beach is a good walk away over sand-dunes, I was told it was a 15-20 minute walk which we didn't make because of disabilities. At 21 per night (including Awning cost), we will not be returning

 Stayed here for two nights. Wonderful, we really enjoyed the stay. Would recommend it. Formby is a pleasant little town about 1. 5 miles from the site. The site itself is in a secluded and peaceful location backing on to the sand dunes, ideal for

Dog walking The Washrooms are a little dated but very clean. The site has quite a number of static Caravans which you pass on the way to the tourer

Area. There you can either park and hook up under

The Pine Trees or go a little further past into the open and hook up on well spaced hard stand pitches. Will return to this site again.

 Just returned from a two day stay at this site with our two grand daughters, aged 4 and 6 years.

Can thoroughly recommend it, safe, quiet, a short walk over the dunes to the beach and sea, what more could we ask for.

Yes the toilet/shower block is a little dated but it was clean at all times with plenty of hot water in the showers for a small 20p charge. Will definitely be back.

Power never tripped once and the owners were so friendly and helpful - were even waiting for us with a friendly wave on arrival. 


Date of Visit: May 2012 Unit:  Campervan
Reviewer: JohntheT25 5 reviews from this member

 Me and the dog stayed here Tue-Fri at the end of May 2012. Luckily we had amazing weather which I'm sure helped make the stay perfect.

It cost 17 a night for me and the dog and the Campervan and the key for the showers/toilet block 2 refundable.

The site is mainly for statics, and I found finding reception a bit tricky - it's the brown glass fronted building - drive in, then bear right and it's on the left.

All spots have hook ups. There are about 8 which aren't hard standing- under the line trees right near to the exit to the dunes.

The others are in an oblong shaped field which is fenced to each side- there are about 20 ish pitches here. It does say 'no ball games' and I imagine if it was full (it wasn't when I was there) there wouldn't be much space for ball games anyway!

The exit to the dunes near the non hard standing plots leads literally into the dunes then the beach is about a 5 minute walk! There is another gateway out which leads to the woods on the other side of Lifeboat Road.

The toilet block is dated but it's clean and must have maybe 15 toilets and 5 showers. There are no hair driers just the one Dyson blade hand drier - good luck drying your hair in that!

No washing up facilities - but this was made clear on booking.

No on-site shop - I recalled passing a one stop type shop just down lifeboat road.

Perfect for those whose dogs love the sea and the sand!

Also (it was midweek) I could get there from 1030am and leave as late as 4!

I'll be going back again soon!

 Great site that's in a wonderful spot and ideal for walking into Formby with its great shops and waitrose store,

The owners are very good people to deal with and do not rush you off the site.

Would return again and maybe we might see the dolphins in the sea as there is a great walk to the sea along the boardwalk path ideal for prams.

We stayed for 4 nights and had no problems, the site is kept spotless and is very safe.

We walked along the red squirrel path and loved the site and its surrounding area.

 Just been to this site for a two night stay, what a nice clean peaceful site, although the toilets are dated there are still showers and toilets and are very clean and can use them without any problem for what they are meant to be used for.

We had so much fun just walking through the sand dunes and going on the beach, our 7 yr old and George our family dog just loved it.

The owner greeted us on arrival and 18 a night is not bad at all for a bank holiday weekend.

We also went walking through the woods, didn't see any red squirrels on this occasion, but we will be returning to hope to see some then.

The power supply I read was not up to scratch, but we had heating on, extra fridge for beer (husky fridge),the tv on, also the wii plugged in and lighting on and had no problems with the supply whatsoever.

Can't go again this year got holidays booked for the year but come December will be ringing and booking a few breaks.

 We visited this site after coming home from a disaster in Anglesey.

The weather had taken a turn for the better so we chose this site for 2 reasons, 1, it's near Liverpool where we fancied visiting and 2, it's right on the sand dunes.

The site does not have anything, no shop, bar, club - just caravans, and for that reason, it's perfect and it's absolutley immaculate, I didn't see any rubbish or dog mess anywhere! :)

We were just going for the weekend, the touring section - which relatively speaking is only a tiny percent of the whole park, is neatly tucked away, right by the entrance to the sand dunes, The sand dunes are totally amazing and we spent hours on them. Although the caravan site was part of the squirrel sanctuary, we didn't see any squirrels :( We did however get to see Anthony Gormley's sea installation which is situated in quaint Crosby just up the road.

It's a great private, secluded, quiet site and I loved the owner too - full of character and information. Couldn't recommend enough. If you are looking for an all singing all dancing site, this is NOT for you !

Reviewer: David + Barbara 6 reviews from this member

 Spent 2 nights here with my daughter (11) and her friend and our puppy Meg. After reading the reviews I was a little wary about taking the children but to be honest it was fine. Where the tourers are its not even a minute walk to the path to the sand dunes and there's plenty of room on the grass to play ball games. I don't mind the children having to be in ( or not running around the site) at 9pm. The electric did trip out once but that was because of our neighbour on the same bollard.

Yes the toilet block is dated but it serves it's purpose and they have installed some fancy handriers now. Staff were very pleasant.

It is situated in a lovely area and within easy driving distance of Southport and Liverpool.

I would go again definitely.
