Beech Tree Cottage is a guest house situated just outside of Ainsdale village which hosts a number of bars and restaurants, including Tipple. With a 10 minute walk to the train station which has direct lines to both Southport town centre & Liverpool city centre, a 15 minute walk to both Hillside and The Royal Birkdale golf course and Ainsdale beach less than a 5 minute drive there really is something for everyone to enjoy.
“A great place to stay in the Southport area. Once through the entrance door Ken and Jan's place opens up to deliver two bedrooms (one en-suite), a separate bathroom and a huge living room/kitchen/dining area. There's also an outside deck area, though the weather was a bit too cold for us to use it. Everything we wanted was there, together with some "bonus" items (milk, tea/coffee, biscuits etc.). Shops and places to eat within easy walking distance. Would definitely return again if in the area.”

“We loved our stay at The Shack - a really lovely little shack/cabin – fairey lights aglow. It’s a warm and cosy place for two with plenty of outside sitting with a view. We awoke to an autumnal view of the fields with bales of hay, a wide panoramic sky view of the Canadian Geese coming in, and the local cat coming to visit. So much better than a view from a Travel Lodge! Our hosts were so welcoming and helpful. And whatever season, it would be a great place to stay. I highly recommend The Shack.”

We are 3 miles from Southport town centre with its many restaurants and unique shopping boulevard (Lord Street) also 6 miles from Ormskirk and Edge Hill University. The golf courses of Royal Birkdale, Hillside and Formby are all within easy reach. WWT Martin Mere is 3 miles away and there are numerous walks through the coastal dunes and pinewoods. Breakfast is not included but fresh fruit, cereal bars, tea and coffee is provided.
“This was our first experience of staying in an Air B and B and based on our stay with Michael and Jan, we would not hesitate to book again. Their home is beautifully located in a quiet, semi-rural setting, yet surrounded by all the amenities one needs for a convenient stay such as pubs / restaurants and shops. For us, this was perfect. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, providing a small tv and fridge as well as a private bathroom, also spotless and tastefully presented. As hosts, Michael and Jan were very relaxed and friendly but moreover, went out of their way to tell us about what the local area has to offer and help us in other ways which were over and beyond our expectations. If we were to visit the area again, we would certainly contact our hosts whom, we are sure, would give a very warm welcome indeed. Many thanks Michael and Jan. Steve and Carol from Rotherham.”
