We wanted a place for a family of five to stay to be near family in Liverpool but to explore the coastline from Liverpool to Southport. We stumbled upon Red Squirrel Cottage in Formby and it turned out to be ideal. Great location for exploring the wider area and the superb Formby beaches are within walking distance/ very short drive...

Management response:

Thank you so much for your kind review. It's so lovely to know people enjoy the time spent at the cottage as much as I do!

Very comfortable well maintained and equipped accommodation much to our liking.From the outside it belies the space inside (a tardis?).Some nice thoughtful touches to make the stay as pleasant and easy as can be.Great location for many activities.. Very nice neighbours as well. A great find amongst all what is available.

Management response:

Thank you for this kind review. I love adding the little touches, and it's so nice to know that they are appreciated. Jo
