This property is part of our Welcome Cottages collection

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Ideal for families and couples wishing to explore the north west of England. This property has an open fire and two separate living rooms.

This property is located in the small coastal town of Formby, just 13 miles from the vibrant city of Liverpool. Red Squirrels Cottage provides comfortable and welcoming accommodation that is perfect for families looking to explore the wonderful north west of England. This charming, semi-detached, Victorian holiday property enjoys its own private parking and manages to successfully combine all the mod cons one expects, such as cable, Smart TV’s and Wi-Fi, with more traditional features such as the open wood burner. The accommodation is very well proportioned, with two separate living rooms so that families can enjoy time together without being on top of each other. Lovely personal touches such as chocolates on the pillow and the printed towels all add to the cottage’s homely feel. It is like having all the comfort of a hotel, but with the added freedom and benefits of self-catering.
Part of the National Trust, Formby is famous for its glorious beach, sweeping sand dunes and pine woods, which are home to the red squirrels, and give the cottage its name. The village also has a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a nearby hotel with spa and golf course. The train station, which is just a 10-minute walk, operates train services into Southport and the centre of Liverpool. Nearby attractions include the Albert Dock, Maritime Museum, Beatles Story, Liverpool One, two cathedrals and two football grounds. The city hosts many exciting events throughout the year, bringing people back again and again.
Other places of interest nearby include Martin Mere, 15 miles, Rufford Old Hall, 20 miles, Speke Hall and Knowsley Safari Park, 25 miles, and Crosby Beach, which is home to Anthony Gormley’s famous sculpture ’Another Place’, 8 miles. Blackpool can be reached in just under an hour by car and a 1½ hour drive will take you into the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales or Lancashire’s Ribble Valley. Red Squirrels Cottage is the perfect getaway for a holiday that can be as relaxed or action packed as you want it to be. Shop, pub and restaurant within ½ mile.
