Willowbank Holiday Home and Touring Park is a quiet, family-owned park in an idyllic woodland setting on the Sefton Coastline.
Set within walking distance of the National Trust nature reserve and not far from the golden sands of Formby Beach surrounded by pinewoods, Willowbank is a magical place for coastal and woodland walks, whatever the season.
Willowbank offers comfortable holiday homes for sale and facilities for tourers including electricity hook-up to all pitches, luxury shower and toilet facilities plus a separate shower and toilet room with wheelchair access.
This is a friendly, immaculately clean and secure park where nothing is too much trouble. Nearby, there is a local convenience store and a traditional country pub within walking distance plus on-site there is a laundry and a good-size dog walking area.
This large, spacious park covers almost thirty acres and is separated from the coastal road by fencing and woodland. With well-lit, level roads throughout, there is space to park at every plot, making it ideal for less-able holiday home owners and anyone in a wheelchair to move around with ease.
Willowbank is just five miles from the centre of Southport, noted for its fine shopping and beautiful parks. Easily accessible from all over the North West and open 50 weeks a year, it’s the perfect place to stay or buy a holiday home.

Lovely clean well thought out spacious site, with good size dog walking area overlooking the army base I had thought it had a stream /water on site but if I'm right it was on the dog walk and due to the amazing hot weather had dried up, set within walking distance to a nature reserve on the way to the beach you can park on just carry on to the end of the road & turn left its probably a 20 min walk (we didn't make it off site as it was too hot for our dog to walk or go in the car) lovely staff will definitely be back only down side was our pitchone of 3 backed onto a very busy road and with a canvas frame could hear it all at night but step away from that pitch and you couldn't hear a thing so poss ok in a tourer

Visited this park a wknd in march. Was really impressed with the facilities. They were spotlessly clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. On arriving we booked in at reception. Then the warden took us to our pitch, which was spacious and well maintained. There is a dog walk by the runway of the airport next door. Believe it or not I didnt hear any aircrafts.It is only a small airfield.
I liked the site so much we left the caravan there and paid for the wknd after. Cant wait to go back
