About the location


Southport 14 miles.

The pretty rural village of Mawdesley is located on the West Lancashire plain between the villages of Eccleston, Rufford and Parbold, just less than 15 miles from the seaside town of Southport. Mawdesley is a regular entrant in Lancashire’s Best Kept Village competition and came first in the “Medium-sized Village” category in 2001 and 2007. The village offers a scattering of traditional brick-built cottages, old farmhouses, barn conversions and a local pub all surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. This is a quiet and peaceful area, with many things to see and do, including the Martin Mere nature reserve, Mere Sands Wood, and the market town of Ormskirk. The classic Victorian seaside town of Southport is just a short drive, and offers some of the finest golf courses in Britain, excellent shopping, a beautiful promenade, the annual Southport Flower Show and the not-to-be-missed annual Air Show. With excellent road and rail links to Manchester, Cumbria and the Lakes, Liverpool with its colourful heritage and the western Dales, this is a location that is worth discovering whatever the time of year.
