Pauline is a gem, hard working lovely lady who goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable and nothing is too much trouble. Barford House is simply the best....

Thanks for sharing your experience, your kind comments and feedback are very much appreciated. I always try to go that extra mile for my guests. Little things like booking taxi pickups to and from the airport make your holiday experience more enjoyable. Look forward to seeing you both next year. Take care Pauline

The reason we returned to Barford House this year was because of the fantastic time we had last year. An extremely comfortable flat served by a very pleasant owner Pauline who cannot do enough for her guests. We consider this the best place in southport and gave booked again for 2017. I can highly recommend it to anyone.

Barford House is in a great location. Easy walking distance to the local park, sea front and town. It is very cosy and a lovely place to come back to after sight seeing all day.
