Located in the village of Ainsdale, a semi rural suburb of Southport, this cosy mid terraced cottage provides comfortable holiday accommodation, ideal for families and couples who want to explore all that the north west of England has to offer, both coast and country.
Ainsdale village has several pubs, restaurants, shops and takeaways which are all within half a mile of the cottage. It also has a leisure centre and village green.
The village has a strong sense of community with the local community centre offering meals and activities for older people at very reasonable prices, and Ainsdale Horticultural Society holds a village show on the village green every year at the start of July.
Ainsdale also has a fabulous beach, which is said to have some of the most breath-taking sunsets and cloudscapes in the whole country.
A great base for walkers and nature lovers, the Sefton Coastal Path and the Trans Pennine Trail both pass through Ainsdale. A number of waymarked nature trails are also accessible from the village. These trails allow access to the Ainsdale Sand Dunes, designated as one of England’s National Nature Reserves. The dunes are home to over 450 plant species as well as the rare natterjack toad, Europe’s loudest amphibian. Red squirrels can occasionally be seen amongst the reserve’s pine forests too, while sand lizards, great-crested newts and a fantastic variety of orchids and other wildflowers can also be found here.
The reserve has a network of around 8 miles of marked footpaths including the Woodland Path and Fisherman’s Path which are both accessible by bike, pushchairs and wheelchairs. An award winning pub and restaurant can be accessed via the paths, walking 3 3/4 miles, 1 hour and 14 minutes (approximately) from Ainsdale railway station with limited on street parking in the vicinity of pine woods.
There are several golf clubs nearby including Royal Birkdale, Hillside, Southport and Ainsdale, and Formby Hall.
The Victorian seaside town of Southport is just 15 minutes away by car, and apart from its beach, fairground and waterpark also offers a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants. It is well known for local, national and international artists featuring in performances and shows at the refurbished Art Centre, Floral Hall or other locations within the town. Blackpool with its many attractions and landmarks is just 35 miles away by car. Other places on the coast worth visiting include the cosmopolitan resort of Lytham St Annes and Crosby beach.
Liverpool can be reached in approximately half an hour by car and Chester, Manchester and Preston are all under an hour’s drive. The Lake District and Lancashire’s beautiful Ribble Valley can be reached in approximately 90 minutes.
For those who want a break from driving, the cottage has excellent links to public transport. There is a bus stop on the main road with services into Southport, Preston and Liverpool. Ainsdale railway station provides links into Liverpool, Chester, Manchester and Preston. Beach 1/2 mile. Shop 400 yards, pubs and restaurants 1/2 mile.

    Boiler service was out of date, was told it would be serviced on second day of our stay, unsure if it was as we weren’t informed or left proof of service,there wasn’t any batteries in the carbon monoxide detector (I had to inform the owner who later fitted them) the smoke detector didn’t work either and a new battery had to be fitted. The mattress, pillows and bedding were all of poor quality, the mattress protector had seen better days and one bed didn’t have a mattress protector at all. Also a lot of the furniture looked tired and had seen better days. In the bathroom the shower head was completely broken and unusable.and The grouting needed renewing.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; The guests were contacted well before the commencement of their stay and I advised them the gas safety certificate had expired and they had the choice to cancel their stay. They were adamant they wanted to stay. I explained a service engineer would be calling during their stay to provide a new certificate but I was restricted to the availability of the service engineer. I had regular communication with the guests advising on the availability of the engineer and the dependency on completion of his workload. I finally got a firm date for the Tuesday of their stay. The work was completed and the certificate left in the property. I received no enquiry to confirm the completion of the work. The certificate is displayed in the property. On arrival the guests asked if there was a carbon monoxide detector and I highlighted it. On testing it was discovered someone had removed he batteries. I immediately went out, bought batteries and returned to fit them within twenty minutes. The smoke detector had been removed from the ceiling by the guest and left on the dining table when I entered the property with the gas engineer. I pressed the test button and it worked so I replaced it on the ceiling. The guests only used one bed but all beds have mattress protectors. The bedding is of good quality bought from local outlets while the mattress are in good condition with one having been replaced this year at a cost of £400. The settees in the front room had faded a little in the sun but were of high quality with reclining mechanisms. These were replaced two days after the guests left, the new ones having been purchased before their stay. The shower head is perfectly functional and is fixed to the wall. I do not understand the comment. No other guest has made similar comments and the comments book in the property and our other reviews, reflects how happy people have been with their stay.

    The location was great with good local amenities and access to public transport. Also the neighbours were very friendly and helpful. The house was comfortable and had most of what we needed for our stay. It was the overall cleanliness - or lack thereof - and the untidy gardens that let this place down. Also the quirky ideas about bed linen. I would recommend the front garden be turned into off road parking, as per the rest of the street, so that customer's cars are out of the way of the enormous tractors that thunder past twice a day. All this place really needs is a bit of time spent on it to deep clean the house and overhaul the gardens.
