A little about Cross Farm Cottages

How has the time gone so quickly? In August 2015 we celebrate five exciting years of welcoming guests to Cross Farm Holiday Cottages. We’ve made many new friends over the years including several regular visitors who return to stay with us in beautiful North West England three or four times a year. When we started restoring our heritage farm buildings into beautiful cottages, we never imagined that one day we’d welcome guests from as far afield as Japan, Guam, Dubai and Azerbaijan — but we have.

Among our visitors are golf fans, walkers and sportspeople, relatives visiting family, people looking for a base to investigate historic Liverpool, Southport and Merseyside, and tourists of all kinds. We made our cottages fully wheelchair-accessible, with wet rooms and facilities designed to be comfortable for those of impeded mobility. It’s been particularly nice to get such a warm reaction from guests for whom these facilities really matter.

In 2012 we were delighted to win the Best Self-Catering Accommodation category in the Lancashire Tourism Awards. The judges were particularly impressed with our use of recycled materials in building the cottages, and with the well thought-out facilities for mobility-impaired guests. And in the same year we made the finals of the Eviivo Gold Awards, hosted by the award-winning independent online booking agent. These awards are decided on customer reviews, and we scored a clean sweep of 5 out of 5 in each category — rooms, friendliness, cleanliness, facilities, service and location — from all 18 reviewers. We also reached the top of a list of 5,000 small places to stay in the North West of England, which Eviivo described as “ an amazing achievement”. We’re also proud to say that we’ve built up a “full house” of 100% positive reviews on TripAdvisor too.

It’s been a busy and exciting time, and the best part has been meeting so many friendly people and making them feel at home. Here’s to another five years and more of welcoming guests to Cross Farm Holiday Cottages. We hope to see you soon.

    "A fantastic location, central to both Southport and Liverpool."

    "The cottages are extemely well thought out. All facilities were available to make our stay very comfortable. The beds were great and we all got 3 very good nights sleep. My 21 year old son was particularly pleased about the freeview TV and wifi. This also meant I was able to email! We will definitely recommend the cottages and will ourselves use them again."
