The Legh Arms
A holiday at Shaw Hall Holiday Park is the ideal place to relax and cook in your well-equipped home, but every so often it can be nice to have a treat and let someone else do the cooking. Just a short walk from your holiday home sits a privately-owned country pub that provides mouth-watering home cooked meals with locally brewed beer or a nice glass of wine. The Legh Arms caters to a range of dietary requirements, so whether you’re vegetarian or have an intolerance to gluten, there’s something for everyone.
Windmill Animal Farm
Holidaying with children? No problem, we know the perfect place to keep those little ones entertained! Windmill Animal Farm offers visitors the chance to experience the everyday life of running a farm while still having the opportunity to watch, feed and pet the animals. If your favourite farm animal is too busy with other visitors, the farm boasts three spectacular children’s play areas so there will never be a dull moment. On top of these play areas, youngsters can have fun with the miniature railway, pedal tractors or even the roller racers. There are a large number of great facilities for both parents and children, including baby changing and a highly-rated coffee shop. Windmill Animal Farm is only a 15 minute drive from Shaw Hall, with a large car park and disabled access for the less able.
Just under a 20 minute drive north of your holiday home is Southport’s Botanic Gardens. Originally opened in the 19th century, these Victorian gardens are the perfect place to take a morning stroll and settle down for a picnic lunch with plenty of space to allow children to run around in the sun. Any animal lover will thoroughly enjoy the animal corner; the gardens are home to peacocks and parrots, as well as guinea pigs and rabbits for everyone to interact with. If you want to relax, you can take a seat in the café and enjoy some homemade food and snacks or even hit the crazy golf course.
