  • "Excellent property."

    Spacious, very clean, great furniture and facilities. Very warm and cosy despite large proportions. Excellent location close to parks and beach. Very interesting to read about its history and link to the Titanic. Will definitely visit again.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay here in this historic property."

    We loved the original features of the house. Apartment was very comfortable. Suited us for a week and Liverpool city centre within easy reach from Waterloo station 10 minutes walk away. Good walks nearby including the beach. Would highly recommend. Crosby itself has a variety of restaurants close by. We look forward to staying again.

  • "Wow! Absolutely gorgeous place."

    Very homely. The little touch of the box of dog blankets and towels was so lovely. And sparkling dog bowls too. The facilities were exactly what was needed on a holiday. We will definitely rebook here and would highly recommend it. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for leaving such a fantastic review!! We are so thrilled you enjoyed your stay, it was a pleasure to host you and would love to welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes Vicky Property Owner

  • "Fantastic, apart from only cooking facility was a microwave"

    Thankyou for your feedback. So glad you liked the apartment. Yes we realise the kitchen is very limited so are in the process of adding an induction hob and an air fryer, we will let Sykes know when this is available. Hoping we can welcome you back again in the future. Warm Wishes Vicky Property Owner

  • "The accommodation is clean, spacious, comfortable, nicely decorated and furnished with lots of architectural features."

    It's located in a quiet spot across the road from the beach, so you have a nice view and pleasant walks nearby. Waterloo train station is only a 10 minute walk away and 15/20 mins train journey to Liverpool Central. It was perfect for a family of four with enough facilities to make a continental breakfast, snacks and picnic for the day. The owners left plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits for our stay. The toiletries provided were a lovely touch. There were also binoculars, games, books to enjoy too. If you're interested in the Titanic, the property is steeped in history with lots of information about the Ismay family. My only criticisms are: Some of the previous occupants belongings were left in the drawers. The wardrobe and drawers would benefit from a wipe out as they were quite dusty/crumbs. The TV doesn't have Freeview or connected to an aerial. So if you don't subscribe to Netflix or Prime, you only have BBC1 and the Freeview/catch-up apps (if you've registered). Other than these very minor issues the accomodation was lovely and we would happily return if we visit Liverpool again. It was much nicer than staying in a hotel!

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay here at Beach Lawn House. As a new business any feed back is very important to us. We appreciate the minor issues raised and these have now been dealt with. We would love to welcome you back again soon. Warm Regards Vicky Property Owner

His son Bruce Ismay lived at the house until he was 13 , he eventually took over the running of the White Star line when his father retired.

After commissioning the build of RMS Titanic, in 1912, he came to international attention as the highest-ranking White Star official to survive the sinking of the ship for which he was subject to severe criticism.

Boasting historic elegancy, original stained-glass windows and attention to detail, this suite is an exceptional base for four persons looking to breakaway to this coastal Sefton region.

This unique, ground-floor Apartment /Suite enjoys an enviable situation opposite Crosby Beach, just a short distance from the centre of Liverpool.

The private hallway leads to a spacious living/dining room that features two French king-size beds, a comfortable corner sofa, dining table , electric Log burner fire and wall-mounted Smart TV.

The ornate ceilings and the original stained glass windows date back to 1860 , you can only imagine some of the conversation’s with Liverpool’s elite businessman that must have taken place in this room over the years Move into the kitchen, housing a microwave/Oven, fridge, kettle and toaster for your basic cooking needs.

Completing the interior is the Victorian bathroom with roll-top bath, shower over, Original Victorian basin and WC, complete with deep blue Victorian tiling throughout.

A small patio area with bistro table and chairs to be found outside at the front, providing a space to enjoy an evening beverage after a day on the beach.

Beach Lawn House (titanic Interest)

Welcome to the Beach Lawn House, the beautiful Mansion house that was originally built in 1860 for Mr Thomas Henry Ismay founder of the Oceanic Steam Navigation Company, more commonly known as the White Star Line. He purchased the property for only £2,500 on the 27th Dec 1860. The original deeds showing his signature can be seen in the hallway of the main house. Thomas Ismay’s house - like the remainder of its neighbours in Beach Lawn — was built in the Italianate manner, popular with the rich merchant classes during the 1860s, and one of a number of architectural styles which battled for favour during the 19° century. At Beach Lawn House, Thomas Ismay used Italianate in its most outspoken form, with a riot of profuse and opulent decoration. Here, the building covenants stipulated uniformity of style, hence all the other houses are Italianate ~ but typically, Ismay managed to outdo all the rest with a house more showy than all its neighbours. Since its original build in 1860 Beach Lawn House has never been open to the general public. In 1930 the Mansion house was divided up into 4 large apartments. In 2022 the new owners decided to renovate the huge ground floor apartment and have now created TWO separate letting suites on the ground floor level . The other area on the ground floor that contains the original Lounge room can from time to time also be privately booked for Private afternoon teas and small evening functions. The house sits opposite Crosby Beach in the Brighton – Le – Sands district of Merseyside. Beautifully presented throughout with off-road parking, EV charging, luxury touches and front lawns. The Beach House provides an exceptional retreat for couples and their canine companions looking to escape to this part of Liverpool for a while. Just a short walk away is Crosby Coastal Park, an excellent starting point for exploring Sefton’s Natural Coast, home to Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre, a purpose-built water sports and visitor centre, featuring a bistro and gym. Crosby Beach offers a large expanse that is home to Antony Gormley's 'Another Place' sculpture, providing lovely walks leading onto the 22 mile Sefton Coastal Path that boasts wonderful coastline vistas. Located near to a train station, you can easily access the city centre of Liverpool and explore the popular Cavern Club, which has famously hosted bands such as The Beatles and Rolling Stones, before heading to the Royal Albert Docks for a choice of eateries and even concert square for bustling nightlife. The Beach provides a charming escape, whatever time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
