  • "This is one of the best places we have stayed in."

    We were very comfortable, it really was a home from home. We would highly recommend this property and will book again if we holiday in Southport in the future.

  • "Big thanks to John for being such an enthusiastic, welcoming and helpful host."

    The property was exactly what we needed - a comfy place close to local amenities and actives for the kids. Birkdale village is really nice and only a short walk away, whilst lovely spots like Formby beach are a short drive away. The place also benefits from being close to the train station - a mere few minutes from Birkdale to Southport on the train for instance. Would definitely recommend and would go again.

  • "Lovely house and garden, so peaceful bearing in mind that it is so close to the railway line but we didn't find it disruptive as trains are electric, relatively quiet and went past quickly."

    Downstairs loo was an added bonus for us oldies with creaky joints, no stairs to climb every time the loo was needed. Double bed was so comfy, we slept really well and the walk-in shower was another bonus for us not having to climb in and out of a bath. Kitchen had all the equipment you could need for dining at home. The only downside for us were the sofas, too low for creaky jointed people but sitting on a bundle of cushions soon sorted that problem out. Would recommend a walk into the Village down the pathway by the side of the railway, lovely cafes and restaurants within walking distance and if you fancy visiting a 'real' pub (still has a taproom) then you can't do much better that The Upsteps, the patron and clients were so friendly when we visited to watch a Liverpool game on Sky Sports. We had a really comfortable, peaceful and fab stay at Spring Close. Thank you to all concerned. Cathy & Kevin May 2022

  • "We had a lovely week."

    The property was ideally placed for access to the sea and liverpool city via excellent train links. Also discovered the little gem of Birkdale village. The owners were very welcoming and attentive but respectful of our privacy. Excellent enclosed 'suntrap' garden and every comfort catered for. Thank You.

    On arrival there was a generous welcome pack, which even included some chews for our dog. The house was very comfortable and clean. We visited in November and it was also warm and cosy. So thank you to our hosts. We will definitely revisit again in the future.

    Lovely home from home in quiet cul de sac. Clean, well presented home with everything you need for comfortable stay. Well situated for train travel and main shopping. Welcome gifts very much appreciated. Would definitely recommend.

  • "A nice house in a nice area, very clean and well equipped, a very generous welcome hamper from the owner which was much appreciated."

    The only two little niggles we did have, was the fact that we would have liked the bathroom door to have a lock on it and although the wardrobe in the main bedroom was large and more than adequate, it would have been nice , to have a small wardrobe in the double room as well, just to save having to disturb others at times when needing clothes.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Spring Close. Following your feedback we will be installing a lock on the bathroom door. Thank you again for providing your comments and we hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "A home away from home."

    This was one of the best properties we’ve experienced with Sykes. It had everything we needed and was so close to all the attractions and activities. Having a designated parking space with no permit needed was a huge bonus and the owners welcomed us with fresh flowers and essentials, which made our late night arrival a really pleasant experience. The beds were really comfortable too which was a huge plus! Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

About the location


Ainsdale 4 miles; Ormskirk 8 miles; Formby 8.5 miles.

Southport, along with its neighbour Ainsdale, lies on the coastline where the Irish Sea meets North West England. The town was founded in 1792 when an innkeeper, William Sutton, built a bathing house at what is now the south end of Lord Street, the main road running through the town. The town was small and not very widely populated until the turn of 19th century, when it became popular with tourists due to the easy access it provided to Leeds and Liverpool Canal. It quickly expanded and now boasts the second longest pleasure pier in the British Isles, the Southport Pier Tramway and Lord Street, an elegant, tree-lined shopping destination. From Birkdale to Woodvale, sand dunes stretch along the coastline and in Ainsdale in particular, the dunes have now been listed as a National Nature Reserve and a designated Ramsar site. The coastline stretches for 22 miles, with plenty of beaches to be discovered, making this classic seaside resort the perfect place to relax and unwind. There are scenic parks and gardens to explore, fabulous shopping opportunities, an exciting nightlife, as well as a mouth-watering array of restaurants and traditional seaside amusements. Stroll down the UK’s oldest iron pier and try the old penny slot machines in the Pavilion, or ride traditional carousels at Silcock’s Funland. Family attractions include Splash World, Martin Mere and Farmer Ted’s, while The Atkinson, an £18 million arts venue, is set in a Grade II listed building hosting a variety of visual and performing arts events. Southport’s extensive events programme includes the World Musical Fireworks Championships, the Southport Food and Drink Festival, Southport Air Show, Southport Flower Show and the Southport Jazz Festival. It is part of England’s Golf Coast and is home to seven championship courses, including Royal Birkdale, which hosted The Open Championship in 2008. In a great spot for a beach break, there really is something for everyone!
