  • "Was not impressed with this coach house."

    Very uncomfortable beds & sofas duvet’s & pillows need updating. Dogs nearby barking all night. Layout could be better difficulty getting drinks etc up the spiral stairs lounge would be better on ground floor

    I'm very sorry to hear that the Coach House did not meet your expectations or requirements. We pride ourselves on providing a first class experience for our guests and were disappointed to read your feedback given that you did not reach out to us with any issues during your stay. As you're aware we are close to hand and would have been happy to help where possible. As you can see from our previous reviews guests usually report a very comfortable stay and this is not something that has presented itself before, but we will of course monitor any comments made and make updates as required. The property boasts a beautiful and quirky spiral staircase, which can be seen in the images before you make your booking and we have never had guests complain about the layout before, but there is a dining area on the ground level to avoid the problem of taking food and drink upstairs.

    Perfect for a short break to visit universities in Liverpool. Quick and easy train ride to the city with Southport station walking distance from The Coachhouse. Teenage children very happy with pool table and games console. Mum very happy with easy access to beautiful beach at Formby and their red squirrel reserve. Fab break - thank you :)

    Thanks for the great review. Lots of guests comment on how good and affordable the rail link to Liverpool is and we have some stunning coastline around here. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "Everything was great apart from the following: the hot water was a little unpredictable when having a shower and the double bed was not particularly comfortable."

    Thanks for saying everything was great, we try our best. We investigated the hot water when the shower was on and found it did go colder, so we have installed a brand new top of the range boiler. Property Owner

  • "The Coach House is comfortable, self-contained, quiet and extremely well equipped (especially for those with a couple of kids who need reliable wifi!"

    ). The location is a 10 minute walk into the town centre and there is lots to do in Southport itself and the surrounding area. This was our second stay at the Coach House, having stayed in 2020 during the COVID pandemic, we did not hesitate to return as we were confident that all appropriate precautions were in place. This truly is a great place to stay!

    Thanks for the review, it's great to hear such positive feedback. We appreciate your repeat bookings of The Coach House and hope to see you again. Property Owner

    We found the property was very well equipped and could see that a lot of work had gone into restoring it. It was in a great location only a few minutes drive away from the centre of town and we all enjoyed the pool table which was a very nice touch. Weather was fantastic and we certainly took full advantage of it. I would highly recommend to family and friends to stay at the Coach House and hope to see you in the future.

  • "Beautiful house,lovely gardens in quiet area."

    Bit of a walk into Southport, but taxis are cheap and reliable, and the bus stop is only around the corner. If there's more than four of you, you can get a mini bus into town and it only costs £4 each way (that's with Yellow Top Taxis). Fantastic value for money, spotlessly clean with an added bonus of a pool table and Nintendo Wii, perfect! Would love to visit again sometime soon.

    It's location is very convenient for the main attractions in Southport. We loved the house and the history behind it.

About the location

SOUTHPORT

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!
